Awkward Pixel Icon Tutorial by FrozenTimez Awkward Pixel Icon Tutorial by FrozenTimez
Warning: ginormous file ahead a@


So, I think I said I'd make one months ago,
and now I finally have many months later =v=;
I'm sorry if its not very good/unclear OTL;
It's my first real shot at a tutorial and I'm a pixel noob myself :iconlazycryplz:

Also, please excuse any typos and grammatical mistakes
since I'm grammatically challenged orz //sobs

ahhh ya, I hope this is useful ; v ;

:star: :star: :star: commissions are open! :star: :star: :star:

What are you setting for the pen tool you used to sketch the icon? ;w;

I use the brush tool set at a 1px hard round brush * v *)ノ

ahaha I must admit that I don't exactly know the 'rules' myself since I'm just an amateur--I still have a lot to learn too ;w;
(plus this tutorial is super outdated so I probably broke a bunch of rules in it OTL;;; )
but ahh, okyi has a little explanation about pixel art on her tumblr here (she's a fantastic pixel artist)
She has a lot of other great tips tagged under #tips if you're interested~

As for staying in one palette, I don't do this personally (though I probably should ahaha), but I know many artists select their palettes beforehand and then stick to that palette as they actually draw. An example of that is in this tutorial~.

I hope that helps! ´ ▽ ` )ノ

thanks for the info. its really helpful to me ^--^. so its like that I have to know how to play with colours right ? but uh .. I did my pixel icon based on your tutorial (but I think it looks kinda weird but I like it) and I tried to stay in a palette (and its really hard to me).

can you give any opinion or maybe some tips to make it nicer?
thank you again ,,u.u,, you're really nice to me.
