Pixel art tutorial by pricechi Pixel art tutorial by pricechi
Tutorials are all the rage! So here's one way you can make pixel art - or more specifically pixel dolls. I love looking at pixel icons sprout up everywhere but I also noticed a pixel icon trend where the bodies are shrinking, coupled with ginormous heads. I hope my tutorial is of use to anyone and everyone!

I'll be keeping this tutorial here for a while, though I tend to store my stuff so you can find it in tumblr in future here: cagedcloset.tumblr.com/post/25...

This is dedicated to my friends, whether you are an artists, not an artist, a tablet or mouse user or trackpad whatever, you all can pixel!

Feel free to ask questions. o u o

And here's a download link to FireAlpaca: firealpaca.com/
(A mix of photoshop and SAI, simple and quite easy to use.)

ps. sorry if you feel cheated by the title o w u)/ give about 10 more minutes to add hair and clothes!

Great tutorial, but what resolution did you used?
Reply
:iconpricechi:
pricechi Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
Resolution?? O: if you mean canvas size, it's 50x50 (icon size), any size works as long as you can see what you're doing haha! 300dpi if it matters, though it only will if you're printing it out of something.
