Thanks for this! I never would have thought of sketching and resizing it. I just start out with a 50x50 pixel canvas and draw with the binary tool. This helps a lot!

I know the basics of pixeling, but your tutorial gives some really great tips! I like your sketching method, resizing the sketch looks like it works really well to help with the lineart. Thanks for making this ^v^
