How to Draw Pixel Art !

Let’s draw pixel art with MediBang Paint for PC!

1. Set up the canvas

⑴ Go to File> New and create a 128x128px canvas.

⑵ Zoom in

⑶ Go to View, and make sure Pixel Grid is checked.

⑷ Now we have a grid. Now we are ready to start drawing!

2. Sketch and lineart

⑴Use a 1px pen to sketch.

⑵When you are done with sketching, download the Pixel brush from the cloud.
* You need to log in to download brushes.

⑶Let’s draw the lineart with a 1px pixel brush.

⑷After roughly drawing the lines, use a transparent color with the same brush to clean it up.
Clean up messy areas or a thick line 1px at a time.

⑸I changed the expression and the pose a bit. The lineart is done!

3.Adding colors

⑴Use the bucket tool to add colors.

⑵Once you laid down all the colors, check Protect Alpha on the color layer.

⑶Use the pixel brush to roughly add shadows.
It’s a good idea to zoom out from time to time to see how it looks.

⑷ Add highlights with white, adjust the shape, and it’s almost done.      

4.Finishing touch

Let’s add colors to the lineart as a finishing touch.
Check Protect Alpha on the lineart layer, and add colors.

And done! The image below is the actual size.
