    Best program for pixel art?

    I already use paint for my bs pixel fun.. but I'm starting to really improve and I was wondering if there was a program the pros use.

    Its definitely not photoshop.

    Example: (made in ps in like 3min)

    I don't know if this will help. This guy uses Photoshop for it and he seems to do pretty well.

    I'm trying to avoid those "jaggies" as much as possible.
    Right now I'm focusing on simple but fun perspective and after some practice with that I'll move onto sprites and people.
    Thanks for that link. [=

    Its prob because of anti alasing. That smooths the lines so you won't get the crisp pixel art look.

    Heres a good tut i guess: http://psd.tutsplus.com/articles/tec...-in-photoshop/

    And for a program: Animation Graphic Editor - GraphicsGale

    I still think though that CS4 with pixel grid would be the best.

    That program is literal win.


    Done in his in about the same time it took me to make the shitty ps one.
    Yes, I know the perspective is fucked up.
