How to add textures to pixel art This is the second part of my pixel art tutorial series. This time I will teach you how to add textures to pixel art. If you don't know what pixel art is or you would like to start from the beginning then look at my other tutorial How to start with pixel art.
If you think that you didn't understand this tutorial fully then you can always send me a note and I will answer to you.
Pixel Art Tutorial Series is currently the most popular thing on my page. The idea behind this is to take suggestions from the community and try to make a tutorial out of these things, helping out fellow deviants along the way. You can also find my pixel art tutorials in groups like #TutorialsForYou, #TutorialsClub and #PixelCommunity. Here is a list of tutorials in my Pixel Art Tutorial Series, tutorials which are underlined and bold are already ready tutorials that you can read, other tutorials without the underline are tutorials that will be posted in deviantART in near future. You can also suggest new pixel art tutorial series by commenting on my profile page, on these tutorials or by sending me a note. Enjoy!
What I'd like to know is, how do you accurately calculate the amount of pixels you should use for the space between the vertical lines? I've been trying to figure this out for 30 minutes now and whatever I do I don't end up with even spaces.
If it makes it easier for you then you can use some kind of other color to help you and later erase it. For example paint 3-4 pixels (however wide you want your gap to be) with one color and after that use 1 pixel of other color. And then do it again if you know what I mean. And that way you can get even gaps.
Indeed, I didn't think about it when I made this tutorial. One of the big downsides is that you can't work much with colors in MS Paint, that's why I'm using ColorPic just to help myself out with colors when I make pixel art in MS Paint. But MS Paint uses Hex, so to get this same color on MS Paint then double click one of the colors on your color section and it should open another window where you can mix your own colors. Press "define custom color" and on the right side you will see a current color with a lot of fields where you have numbers in. Put these values - hue:45 sat:205 red:142 grn:114 blue:28 and it should work.
I see time as one star or do you mean the next tutorial after this one. And thank you.
I don't know how to really explain how I made this roof. Basically I did it in a same way as I did with all the textures, I just left some bigger caps. And I also lowered that center part of the roof so it would like an edge around the cube. I guess the best way to understand would be to download the tutorial, open it in microsoft paint or in some kind of similar program and zoom in. These are tutorials, that's why I have download links enabled on the right side of the page.
Oh, your awesome stuff prompted me to do some simple pieces of my own, which I recently just posted, actually. I'm kinda happy with how they came out. I haven't tried textures yet though and I'm horrible at shading palettes, but I'll sure try
