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.

Very nice overview of techniques.
Very basic stuff.
I dabbled on my own with pixel art and learned a lot on my own but after watching this it's like everything I sort of figured out myself was explained clearly to me and i learnt a lot of great ways to increase my workflow speed and improve.
