pixel brushes tutorial

This is a BASIC pixel brush tutorial.

You'll be learning something like this:

The Steps

1. Create a new document with a white background. You can make it the size for the pixel you want to create, or create a bigger one just to play around. I made mine 100x100.

2. Zoom in to 1600% or 3200%. I zoomed in to 1600%. Click on the rectangle tool and make a square size 1px by 1px. Define that square. It'll save you time later. Click on the pencil tool and find the square.

3. Ok this is kinda weird, but you basically just use the square to create what ever shape you want. This is the start of a heart.

And here is my heart finished.

When you zoom out, you'll see this. That's all there is to a simple heart.


Basically, you just create shapes using tiny squares. Here's samples of some basic pixels. The left is the pixel zoomed in to 1600%, the right is the pixels normal size (it's once you zoom out to the normal 100%).
