How to Create Pixel Art in GIMP 2.10

In this GIMP 2.10 tutorial, I show you how to create pixel art using the pencil tool and some other techniques! Drawing pixel art in a raster-based graphics software (such as GIMP) is common for things like game design, game art, or general pixel art pieces. I reference a sketch drawing I made in GIMP with a Wacom tablet to help me create the composition.

Basic or beginner users will be able to follow this tutorial as I go into depth in each step of the tutorial. More advanced users will be able to use their pixel art to animate or as a sprite for their games.
