This is great! I can't sketch in pixel, it always looks bad, especially working on smaller pieces where every pixel counts as to how to shape/curve will look. With this tip I can't use the pen tool for my drawings and turn them into pixel afterwards! I just tried it out and it worked pretty good. Because of the pressure sensitivity, the thickness and opacity of different lines requires quite a bit of cleanup to do afterwards, but the shape isn't lost. So thanks for that tip!

Well put info and brilliant. I've wondered about those white lines between the color and the lineart so thank you.

Curious when one does a tutorial like this, can you use the info on microsoft word processor and post the pictures before turning it into a web page and uploading it, or is there some other way?

LOL in other words, what is needed to make a tutorial?

Haha, oh I think I understand what you're saying! Nah, I put it all together in MSPaint. I make a ginormous canvas and throw in all the pictures I'll need to begin with. Then I just start typing and organizing the pictures+text so they flow as nicely as I can manage them

I already knew how to do this, but I read your tutorial anyway. You explained it so well! Especially the png vs. jpeg thing. I see so many artists ruin their drawings by saving them as jpegs, and it really saddens me.

Haha, thanks! Yeah, I was trying to include as much as I could while keeping it simple so people won't lose interest while reading @_@

Aughhh, it's so sad to see nice pixel works saved as jpgs! :iconheadacheplz: But yeah, thank you! I'm glad to hear that it's easy to understand :) :heart:

This would be great, if only I knew how to properly do the first step (turning a pencil sketch into blurry lines) I can't just seem to freehand trace like you recommend. Without doing that, the rest of this tutorial seems kind of pointless to me. I tried using Gimp and using layers with the pen tool, and I just make a mess. Do you have a tutorial for that, or do I just not have a steady enough hand to bother with all of this?

IridescentStardust Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, actually most of the time, I just trace over my sketch in MSPaint with the line tool, doing something like this - [link] or [link] It's a billion times easier for me xD Cause I'm so used to it.

I only really do the techniques in this tutorial if I've got someone else's lineart that I want to make all pixel-y goodness.

Well thank you for the help then, I will be sure to look at the tutorial and use it to the best of my ability and see if that does anything to improve what I'm doing.
And sorry for not replying sooner, I didn't want to reply in case that made the tutorial link disappear, but I just bookmarked this page and the Tutorials to get at it again.

For Gimp there are some really great tutorial for beginners and fro those who do not have a tablet, just search for "gimp lineart tutorial" on DA! Here is an example for a result, which seems to be really useful: [link]

Good luck exploring it :)
