I have created some neat pixelart in my condo! I just finished Sans a few minutes ago.
Here are some tips to get started on your own pixelart!
Tip #1: Buy craploads of closed cardboard boxes at Rob’s Imports. Seriously. You’ll need a lot.
Tip #2: Build from a flat surface. I made a small mistake with my Link pixelart by wanting to build near the sand. I had to build it from the wall on the right to get it aligned straight.
Tip #3: Use a grid size of 3. It’s one of the only sizes that doesn’t make the boxes sink into the ground, and it’s the only grid size that joins them together nicely without them overlapping into each other.
It’s not a fun time.
Tip #5: If you want to keep your sanity in check, use 8-bit art only! If you have enough time, units, sanity, and patience to spare. Then by all means, go higher than 8-bit.
Tip #6: Build and paint the pixelart one line at a time! Trust me, this will help you immensely in the long run.
Feel free to share your pixelart too!
