There are a million pixel art tutorials out there, so I tried to make mine informative, not repetitive. Hope it helps in some way! - Download to view in full!
Thank you all so much for all the comments in my previous pixel art/ icon tutorial! * U * I made it for my watchers originally and I'm glad more potential pixel artists (and artists alike) go to see it too. Feel free to ask any questions or if you want me to help with your wips!
I'm not sure if your SAI can save transparent bgs (mine can't). 1. Erase the background to make it transparent [link] 2. Save in .psd (filename.psd) 3. Open gimp/photoshop/firealpaca, and you'll see that the background is checkered. 4. Save in .gif or .png in that program. That's what I do.
