Move the hand along each step you are on so you don't lose track:
Just left click on the hand and drag to where your at:
Letís start this
out with telling you what a pixel is. A pixel is a very small dot if you
will that you use many of to form a small picture. You can make them as big
as you wish or as small as you wish. In the following lessons you are going
to learn how to create your own drawings, how to count out pixel charts;
color them, pixel from a picture and pixel from even a cartoon.
There are many
pixel sites out there but if you want to use their work you have to pay for
it. What we are going to learn here is how to make your own and get you
comfortable in working with them. Pixel art is time consuming but well worth
the final result that you will get.
Step 1) Open a new work space of 250 x 250
Step 2) Click on your paint brush and in
your tool options use your default settings
Step 3) Change your foreground to any
color you wish to use.
Step 4) Now zoom your workspace up
around 500 to 800 I personally use 800 since it is easier n the eyes
Step 5) Go to the middle as close as
you can and left mouse click one time.
In the screen shot below notice where
the slide bars are at and where my one pixel is at. That is very close to
center. That is how small your pixel is zoomed in at 800.
This is your one pixel at 100%
Step 6) So you see that you will be
working very tiny but you will be very impressed with your results!
Step 7) Now what I want you to do is
zoom your pixel work canvas up as big as you wish and make 9 pixel colors
all different colors
Step 8) Screen shot your work at your
zoomed in point then crop your work down so you can send it in.
Send in your screen shot of your nine different pixel colors.
I hope you have
enjoyed this lesson!
