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

Oh and if you find any grammar/spelling mistake please tell me ;; hehe

Thanks so much for the nice tutorial, your hair and eye styles are suuuuper nice looking!! :iconwooowplz:

I know this is a "pixel doll" tutorial as opposed to an "icon" one, but can you give me advice on how to make the shading visible on such a small icon? When I was on SAI I could see the shading/highlights pretty nicely (because I was zoomed way in so I could see my work) but then when I posted it, everything kind of blended together and now nothing's really visible. I know it has to be possible, looking at the art of others on the same scale, but I have no idea what I was/am doing wrong~ DX yoko-tan.deviantart.com/art/Pi…
