Creating Pixel Art

Pixel art is a retro form of digital art which is gaining a lot in popularity these days. Pixel art is generally thought of as a computer graphic where the image is literally drawn pixel-by-pixel in tiny detail, usually using a limited color palette and primitive computer graphics tools. For instance, Microsoft Paint, which hasn't been updated or changed in years, is a perfectly suitable tool for creating pixel art. Pixel art resembles the jagged 8-bit computer graphics of the early 1990s such as those seen in computer role-playing games and Nintendo systems. Computer icons are typically created in a pixel art style. Although pixel art is not hard to create, it does require a great deal of patience!
