1 CommentA list of good pixel art sites
My all time passion and love for pixel art illustration and graphics is always strong but yet to find some time to hand on it. Pixel art as the name implied, are graphics that are created pixel by pixel, at the same size that they are seen on screen. Sometimes when I am in need to design some isometric landscapes, I will use illustrator CS2’s 3D tools to design some quick buildings and skyscrapers.
But for those who really keen in learning, I would suggest to spend some quality time, start afresh to learn the isometric drawing skill from some really great pixel art sites. I have compiled a list of them here, let’s start exploring..
