Icon Tutorial (updated info) by onisuu Icon Tutorial (updated info) by onisuu
NEWER TUTORIAL
drawing icons in SAI by onisuu



reminder: A tutorial is meant to provide tips. It's not an OK for you to copy/trace another person's work. That is just mirroring someone -- I know you are better than that and can CREATE something : )
Don't trace my art by onisuu

livestream video = livestre.am/3XcQb

notes:
~ resize by going to Image > resize
or canvas > change resolution
then input 50 by 50 pixels for the new size.
~ I did this in SAI~
~ The binary brush is also the 'Pencil tool' in some programs, like photoshop. :3
~ rather than use a soft brush you can pick a few colours and applu them with a binary brush for a true pixel art quality. I was taking shortcuts on this piece haha

with this method I also made:
OCs -- twins by onisuuOCs -- Yves pixel by onisuu

zelda fan art~ hehe ^^
skyward sword -- Link3 by onisuuwind waker -- The Pig by onisuu

I've been going around sai--and well, I read and all--Binary brush is supposed to be the Pen right?

Coz, I'm a bit slow---

for the thumbnail it doesn't really matter the quality of the picture since it's gonna be shrunken down no matter the size ^^
