a few more layouts from my film…
i am pretty new to pixels so i think my method is not very efficient haha but here’s what i do…sorry if it doesn’t make much sense
1. open SAI, select the Binary tool (size 1), zoom in until the pixels are big as i want them to be, usually 300 ~ 600%
usually do lineart in black first rough at first then clean up as i go
then color inside and the lineart at same time while keeping track of the palette im using
add a clipping group multiply/overlay layer of a certain color at the end if necessary
2. after i finish i use Snipping Tool to basically screenshot it and save it as a picture (so i don’t lose the size of the pixels when i zoomed in to make them appear bigger)
3. open the pic in photoshop to select and erase the empty space to make it transparent, crop it, etc.
4. for animated pixels ive been using gifmaker.me
for the last few drawings i’ve been using faber castel sepia pen. otherwise i normally use sakura microns or staedtler triplus fineliners. triplus are fun to use since they are water soluble! i tend to use the smallest pen sizes (0.1/S) since i like to draw small.
i think i’ve already said this already but really just
dont give up
thank you!! =,)

Don’t give up, Julia! I still remember, you draw so small and so detailed. I’ve never met anyone who draws quite like you do, and it’s got a sort of atmosphere to it that I really wish I could emulate. I…
