Okay, this is a tutorial basically of how I pixel everything. That chibi is a bit old, I've improved a little since then but it's a simple character and I think it's easier to understand the tutorial that way. The image of the chibi used here is enlarged. Here's the original:
If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment, I'll try my best to answer them~ Oh and if you find any grammar/spelling mistake please tell me ;; hehe
