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

Could you please elaborate more on step 5? How exactly do you color the lines that are already there? Do you go over them in a different layer? Is it on the same layer? How did you do it?

Is there a way to do this without SAI or Photoshop?
Reply

Riuori Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2015
You can use the pencil tool on MSpaint, but this program doesn't work with layer s so it may be more difficult
I've never used any other art programs so I'm not sure ;v;
