MSpaint Pixel Tutorial by mocha-san MSpaint Pixel Tutorial by mocha-san
I was reeeeally bored, so I figured I would make a short tutorial about how I do my pixel art, since I have been asked so many times.

I use MSpaint for all of my pixel pieces. The only thing I use photoshop for is to make the backgrounds transparent.

Happy pixelling!

This is really helpful ^^ Thanks for posting it! Though I do have to say, the paitence this takes amazes me XD; I've been sitting at my computer working on the same picture for over a few hours, and I'm not even done with the hair and ears yet (I haven't started the rest OTL). ouo I haven't seen much of your art yet, but I do want to look into it ^^ It seems really good so far! *clap clap*

First of all, thank you for this tutorial ^^ I have some transparency questions as well, when you create the pixel in MS paint, then transfer it over to photoshop for making the background transparent, I've tried using the wand tool to select and cut the background out, but then when I re size it and save it it always comes out looking blurry and gross. I've been saving them as PNGs. Is there a better way to do this? Thank you!

Yeah, you have "anti-aliasing" turned on. Turn it off, and you won't have any blurring problems--save as a .gif and enjoy :D

This is awesome. I always wanted to try making some pixel art. I just never knew how to. :D
Is it easy to use MS Paint in doing this? I'm kind of scared about not being able to work with Layers. ^^;

It's pretty easy; it just happens to be tedious. You can always use layers in photoshop with this tutorial though.

This is very useful, thanks! And a trasparency question if you don't mind me asking. I notticed Photoshop has a checkered background when it is transparent, if you made a checkered background on paint would that do the same thing?

I've only ever used PS to make things transparent, as there is a lot more in terms of options with compressing and such.
