now let’s go over some tips of pixel art!
- keep your canvas size between 0 - 400 px. it’s easier to see the lines more clearer in SAI.
- look at the above. this is very important. do NOT make ‘chunky lines’ when doing pixel art. it doesn’t look very good when you do. you always want to have pixel lineart that is crisp and doesn’t overlap.
- now look at the color scheme. see how it all blends well? nothing is uber bright? yeah, you want to have a scheme like that. don’t use super bright colors unless you wanna stress someone’s eyes. try going midtone. do not go super bright. dim your color choices (literally. make em more dull looking).
- see that above affect? it’s called dithering. a lot of RPGMaker chip/charsets use this effect. here’s how you can do it.
and that’s all i have to say! thank you for readin’! (^ v ^)b
