Hello and welcome to the the first level of the Pixel Course: the Fundamentals

Through this creature course, Tim Von Rueden takes a closer look at creating pixel art while in Photoshop CS5 using a Wacom Intuos4 tablet.

What you’ll learn in this course

This course is set to teach you the fundamentals of pixel art from learning the different terms to setting up Photoshop to work specifically for pixel art. We will go through the pixel specific terms such as anti-aliasing, dithering, pillow shading, and outlining, to help better understand pixel art. From there we will take a quick look at color and how to use techniques such as hue shifting to give your work a boost in value and saturation on such a small scale. For each of the objects we will be creating (rock, tree, character) I will take a classic and modern approach to show different ways of going about the many different styles of pixel art.
