About This Class

In this class you’ll learn the principles of Pixel Art. At the end of this class you’ll have at least your own character and background to start prototyping your own game.

Pixel art is a form of digital art that became very influent by its usage in early video games and it is still very popular nowadays. Is a very powerful tool for indie game developers because you can create extremely beautiful graphics with it and it can be easily done by a single person.

Full Soundtrack by Diego Linx.

Very good tips, interesting class for beginners
many courses with detailed and well scripted classes.
As a pixel artist, I DO recommend this course. Basics are explained in detail (even I learned A LOT from this), start doing pixel art right away after the course, and it's fun.
