Dynamic Pixel Art
Prerequisite: You love to draw!
Intermediate Level: Develop unique characters, monsters and heroes. Bring them to life with animation!
Creating dynamic pixel art and animations can make a game more enjoyable to play.
We will be using two different programs to create Sprites with. One is PiskelApp, and online free program, The other is a dedicated Sprite Creator, called ‘Aesprite’, a drawing and animation program used by many Indie Game Developers, specifically suited to Pixel Art.
