posted

Would you like to practice drawing or establish a modern and trendy visual? Pixel art is quite particular to understand, because it mixes the age of graphics, and both modernity! In a single idea, a single concept, you can create a visual that is satisfying and rather nice to visualize!

Definition of pixel art

The pixel art is a graphic style that uses a screen resolution of very low quality. Also, the colors of the visual are very limited. That is to say that a design made in pixel art is represented by a square and colorful appearance. Pixel art is a good creative process to minimize an object, person or entity.

Pixel art and drawings

Beyond being a simple style of graphic design, it represents a real technique in drawing! Indeed, creating pixel art requires much more than creating 2 or 3 squares of pixels next to each other. But then, how to do it? Well, that's pretty straightforward to design when you're aiming to create a simple shape. You just have to distinguish each element by pixels of a different color. And for the effect it gives, it comes close to the concept of embroidery.
