The Art Director of Gando Games, just finished a tutorial about Pixel Art, Sprite Design, this surged as some experience he gained while working in the iPhone Platform, but the tutorial is 100% generic.

It may be worthy to check out:

No. I tried Pixen for a while, but dumped it because it kept changing the colour values of the pixels. I'd start of with a 16 colour palette and end up with 30 colours because Pixen kept altering the colours on me.

Can anyone reccommend a good tutorial on how to draw a sprite with more than 8 directions. I'm trying to draw a 16x16 sprite that faces 16 different directions, and while I've been moderately successful with simple shapes, I need to move on to something a little more complicated. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I don't have much talent when it comes to drawing, but I want to learn how to do pixel art. Would I be better off spending some time learning how to draw decently or are they separate skillsets?

I don't know anyone that can sprite but can't draw. When you can draw well you can typically figure out how things are going to look when you're not even an eighth of the way to being finished, and that's important in spriting (or at least, i've found it is)

Also, anatomy. That's pretty important. Best way to learn that is drawing, not spriting.

Why not just using a 3D-model program, letting it do correct perspective and lighting and then just simply taking any snap-shots you want? Potentially it can apply to pixel-art aswell, you just dictate what brightness-levels to choose(just like with cel-shading). My guess, may be with some innovative tools a pixel-artist could save a ton of time and the main work will reduce to just sculping out the outlines and defining the set of colors for the sprite, because all of the rest can be computed based on the depth-information of the outlines and the position of the lightsource/s. So I wonder whether some special pixel-art tools do exist which allow you to do it.
