How to make pixel art?


Recommended Posts

Hello Sam and welcome to the forum :D .

 

You can make pixel art in PDN.  Basically you need to have a very small canvas size - about 80 x 80 and zoom in to see what you are doing.

 

Here is an example of how to set it up. 

 

Open Paint.net and draw your image, or upload something you like.  Resize the image down to the above dimensions and lower the opacity.  Make a new layer and use the pencil tool to fill each pixel with color.  Make sure the Background layer is unchecked.

You are very welcome @Sam.  I am in the middle of doing a tutorial and hopefully should be fininshed by the end of today.  I will post it on the forum when I'm done.
