Pew's Packin' Pixel Tutorial (2.0) by pew Pew's Packin' Pixel Tutorial (2.0) by pew
because let's face it, the other one was out of date.
in case you are wondering, I use Photoshop Elements 8.0 for my pixels.
other recommended programs include SAI, or MS paint. (yes, MS paint is usable)

this is just how I pixel, so please do not comment telling me I am wrong or unprofessional. these are meant for silly pixels and in no way are recommended for anything above.

you may comment any questions you have, I will be happy to answer them!

sorry for any type-o's.

Hmm I see! I was wondering how you know if it's not too round?

hrmm the only way to do that would be to study and practice! try looking at others' pixels and observing their lines, and where they make corners / etc. then you can practice out your lines as well : ) that's the way I did it hehe

Thanks for the tutorial! I think you use adobe  photoshop elements, so I was wondering what brush you use for your pixels? I can't find a pixel brush x3

if you're using elements, it's pretty simple! if you right click on the brush tool, it should give you a pencil tool option? that's the one you want! : )

Now the next tutorial you should do is how to animate pixels in certain parts. (I.e. blinking, barking, movements in general, etc.)

And I'll love you forever.

Well that's arguable, because I think you are a really good animator.
