What You’ll Be Creating For I long time avoided pixel art, because it looked so stiff to me.

What You’ll Be Creating The biggest problem with digital painting is that it’s seen as quite a spontaneous activity—you don’t think, you just get an idea and try to present it with all the resources available. When the outcome is far from your expectations, you just consider yourself talentless and lose heart. Such a vision of the creation process is a serious obstacle in your artistic education—all you know is that you can’t paint, but there’s no tutorial for this! This applies to “talented” artists too.

What You’ll Be Creating From Space Invaders to Super Mario, pixel art is well known within the game industry of yore. It’s quite likely that you grew up seeing a great deal of the art form through gaming consoles or PCs without a great deal of investigation into the process of creating it.

As pixel art in game design, illustration, and other media has made quite a comeback in recent years (likely due to nostalgia and an appreciation of a beautiful, if sometimes tedious, style of artwork), it’s a great time to ask the question: “What’s the deal with pixel art?” What Qualifies as Pixel Art? Video game style pixel sprites. Considering that everything you are viewing on your monitor, tablet, or phone is comprised of many, many pixels, the often asked question …
