Jump to: navigation, search

The Pixel Art Campaign is a Campaign that allows for the creation of Pixel Art, a form of art related to pointillism that uses single dots (pixels) of colors to create a larger image.

Day 1: Squares
Welcome! I see you're eager to test your art skills. Pixel art is not as simple as dropping squares on a screen. Let's practice a little.

  • Make Curves: Squares were easy. Now let's make Circles!



Day 4: Structure
No, it's not a robot -- it's my shape, composed using basic geometry. This will help you plan before drawing.

  • Composing with Geometry: Now that we have Squares and Circles, let's use them to compose our drawing!



Day 5: Delineate
Let's raise the difficulty level. Here's my outline -- draw me, and please ensure you capture my best side.

Day 8: Color 2
I know I'm unique, but try copying my exquisite image. It's not that hard -- try painting the black borders first.

Bigger, better, shinier, happier, harder. It's me, with elements! What could be more fun to draw?
