Perfect Pixel Art

A pixel is a computerized dot of color. Pixel art is a type of digital art that uses pixels to make up the work. With pixel art, the artist has to place each pixel properly to create a certain effect. One dot out of place could make the piece look strange. Properly done, the artist can create backgrounds, characters, and three dimensional (3-D) effects with a limited color pallet. These techniques were used in older video games as well as in newer mobile games.

In pixel art, the artist places each dot in just the right place to create his desired effect. Most times, this means the artist will have to work placing one pixel at a time. As such, expensive graphic software is not required to create this art. A simple program such as Microsoft Paint or a more extensive program such as Adobe® Photoshop® can both be used to successfully make a pixelated piece.
