Pixel Tutorial by Riuori Pixel Tutorial by Riuori
Edit - I have the spanish version of SAI so the tools and settings were in spanish too. I downloaded the english ver and took new screenshots of the toolbar, now you have the tutorial entirely in english hehe xD Also corrected some writing mistakes ;;

Huge file! > A <

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: Kouki by Riuori

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

Next tutorial will be... blinking animation~ <3

Featuring some guides about the basics of pixel art:

Hola! Una pregunta, todo lo haces en una misma capa??

Riuori Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2015
Hola! ^^ No, uso diferentes capas para el lineart y los colores, a veces tambien uso una capa diferente para las sombras.

Really love this tutorial it helped me a lot :3 I use Gimp to make pixel art, would you say Sai is better?

Amazing,but how do you make the background transparent in sai?
Reply
:iconriuori:
Riuori Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2014
It's explained at the bottom of the tutorial but you basically have to save file as .png and choose the 32bpp ARGB option in the save options window. If this window doesn't pop up it's because your SAI version is old.
Hope this helps :^)

I've learned something new. I've always used the same tone/hue/color for the outline. Now I know I also have to consider shadows and lightings can also affect the outlines. Thank you.

Drawing normal digital arts with dodging, shading, and with smoothing linearts tools, it isn't that hard. But drawing pixel arts with perfect details, I'm impressed. :D
Nice job, great tutorial, gonna try this someday.
