Pixel Art Tutorial - Animation for Beginners by Gasara Pixel Art Tutorial - Animation for Beginners by Gasara
Here we have the second part of my pixel art tutorial series. We're taking a quick look at animation this time so you can make all of your pixel art, well, animated. Again, this tutorial is made for people who have not yet attemped any kind of animation so it might not be of much use to those of you who have already dabbled.

Here are all the Snuffles icons made during this tutorial. Below them are a couple of other examples of how you can use the animation effects explained here.




As always, thanks for reading ♥

Hi! The tutorial was fantastic! Thank you for posting this. :iconluvluvplz: I just have a few questions. c:
Would you happen to know how I get it to not make me put up a preview image? I see that Snuffles there doesn't need one. :"D. Also, what category should I put the animation under? Whenever I choose a specific one, it says that the category I chose doesn't allow 'this type of deviation'. ^-^;
Thanks!

Hello, my dear!

You will be asked to provide a preview image if your pixel art is larger than 150px either in length, width, or both. This is just the way deviantART works. If your image is smaller than that then it might be asking you to provide one due to the category settings. I always post my pixel art in the following category: Digital Art / Pixel Art / Other / Non-Isometric

Hope that helps!

Ah okay! I see. Do you have any tips for getting pixel art under 150px? I'm not too sure how to make sure it is. cx.
And thanks! I'll write down the categories. :iconfoxyayzplz:

Depending on what software you're using you should be able to check the size of your canvas with the image properties or canvas size options. These can usually be found under the File or Image option in your software's menu. You should be able to change your canvas size with one of the options around there too if you need to.

The easiest way to make sure your image is always small enough is to set your canvas size when you start a new image. You are given this option whenever you start a new file. If you set the height and width to 150px at that point then you'll know that as long as your image is within the canvas it won't need a preview image. You can crop the canvas down at the end if your image is smaller than the canvas size to remove any empty space around your pixel art. :D
