/Edit: OMG WHAT THE HECK ;;;;; THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS!! I got a DD?!!! :icontearplz:

Hi guys ^___^
I've re-done my pixel icon tutorial.. there are two parts to this, because it's like, super huge. Haha sorry!!

Part 1 of 2.
Part two is here:…

The pixel palette can be found here:…
The DA user is: :iconkawaiihannah:

I've found new methods, ways, tips and tricks that will help you out better than the last tutorial. :) Another reason why I wanted to make this so that people don't have to use their money on me, and making it themselves will make them feel - proud of themself for achieving something different / trying a new medium!

If you think it's hard, give it a try first. I used a tutorial before that was sort of hard to understand, but once I read through it again and again, look where it's brought me :D (It's up to you to decide if it's good or bad LOL) ~

If you have any questions, anything at all, let me know! <3


A note:
PHOTOSHOP: To resize with anti-alias, press CTRL+K (Options/Preferences) and change the option from Bicubic (Smoother) to Nearest Neighbour ^^

-Photoshop CS4: How to change the eraser mode to pencil?
In the tool bar at the top right next to the Brush options is the Mode button with the Pencil, Block and Brush choices for the type of erasing tool.

Photoshop Elements: Where is the pencil tool?
The pencil tool is nested with the brush tool, you can press 'N' to find it. Picture:…

Thanks for reading ! <3

Thank you so much for this wonderful tutorial. It took me all night to figure out how to use it with GIMP (the program and my computer's fault, not yours!), but I finally succeeded (more or less), and look forward to exploring more with pixel art. You've done an awesome job!
