  4. Avik Bara says:

    I am not a expert on this but i am interested and read in a forum dedicated
    to pixel art that using automatic things like adjustment layer and blending
    options are frowned upon.?

    my pencil is set to 1 so is my grid but my grid is still too small can
    someone help me with that??

  6. Bulbakip says:

    Which Photoshop version is this??

  7. Sawingleon says:

    If when you draw it isn’t properly aligned with the grid just use the tick
    the checkbox for pixel grid instead of the normal grid. (view > show >
    pixel grid) :D?

    I’m using photoshop elements 11 and I can’t find the tool that doesn’t make
    the whole picture blurry ( 4:04 ) Does anyone know where I can find it? ?

  11. ozurdin says:

    noob to photoshop, when you zoomed it enlarged the pixels, accutally
    zooming on just that 20×20. on mine when i tried that it just kept making
    more smaller pixels as the background got larger. if that makes any sense.
    how do i zoom in on the grid to see the pixels better (bigger)?

  12. AmpedSoup says:

    Are there any ways I can enlarge my pixel art without the blurs and stuff??

  13. TacTICad says:

    and i draws like a real pencil can someone please help me?

  14. Jesse Bauman says:

    if you change the opacity of a pixel will it actually show an image behind
    it in unity. for example will a glowing light actual lighten an area or
    will it just cover over it ? ?

  15. Yuuva says:

    Thanks a ton for this tutorial, I’m going to be using this new knowledge
    during the Global Game Jam tomorrow!?

  16. pmg1180 says:

    Question, can you able to print the grid along with a image? That is where
    I am still struggling with. I like this video. It is a great place to
    start. Let me know. Big thanks!?

    Er du norsk? o.0?

  18. Mrkimaburrido says:

    I don’t know why, but my grid won’t adjust properly.
    I mena, it always looks like there’s half a pixel extra, and my grid is
    not exactly one 1px*1px, it’s actually less. Any idea how to fix this??

  19. DoofusInc says:

    On CS6 grid is not alligned even when the pixel grid option is checked. The
    only option is to change the background to another color instead of white,
    as the pixel grid cannot change colors.?

    What you can do with brushes completely blew my mind! You are an artist,
    for sure. Thanks for sharing.?

  26. Radhika Bianchi says:

    Thank you for taking the time to create this tutorial. I struggle with how
    to use brushes in photoshop since I’m used to traditional painting and
    drawing on paper and canvas. Digital painting is awesome and a huge savior
    for someone like me who travels a lot and can’t afford to buy art materials
    all the time. You’re great! I’m totally subscribed :D?

    slow paced and explained) on finalizing a digital painting, I have a lot of
    trouble with that. Like I can get an idea down that looks ok… but then I
    can’t seem to finalize it. Thanks and keep it up
