This is how I do it:



There isn't much mystery, tho, as I just normally draw it and then fix the pixels that are out of place. You could do something like this, just draw as you would normally draw anime art, and then fix it so the pixels won't be clungy and awkward.

The only thing that sets pixel art apart from other art is the focus on the pixels themselves, and their relations to other pixels. Most, if not all forms of 2D art can be replicated in pixel art (including "Anime"), as long as proper care is taken when handling the pixels.

Here's a good tutorial that explains what pixel art is, and its various nuances:

I think you might want to look into Street Fighter/King of Fighter sprites.
But these are HARD to make.

Young artist rule N1 is that anime is not a separate discipline from art but merely a offshoot. Same for pixelart, all "How to draw a sprite/manga" tutorials are useless.
The only recomendation i can give is to study color theory and draw stuff in regular technics and then go to pixelart.

In fact, no, they aren't useless. Anime art is a whole new form on it's own. The style requires way more precision than just painting on photoshop, with fine lines and everything having to be absurdly subtle, to expressions, to the way you'll change the eyes. It's completely different from comics, for example. If you want to learn anime art, go into tutorials on anime art, if you already know how to draw. If not, learn how to properly draw the body with anatomic lessons, and then go to anime art. You'll need to know that sublety is key. A tip I can give to learn a little on colours is to just do the shadows on a separate layer with multiply on 40% (if using Photoshop, but SAI has this feature as well) and choose a very light lilac to paint on that layer, on top of your already painted in flat colours drawing. That'll give you good colours for the shadows, instead of you having to choose a shadow colour for each part of the drawing.

I'd say: experiment first and see if pixel art anime style is what you really want. Even within the anime style pixel art there are tons of different styles to aim for. You never know what you need to learn if you don't start drawing/pixeling. Two examples:

https://twitter.com/puppiesandanime/status/836645941067276289 and https://twitter.com/ichigogoooooooo/status/843992673090527232

As a general rule, I guess, for anime style you'd have to study anatomy, study how to convey characters, types of lineart, etc. For pixel art, you have to start from color theory and basic shapes (well this is basically the foundation of art). So maybe testing the waters first to know where to start learning from would be best.

if you can't draw like a japanese cartoonist and can't create pixel art what made you think a tutorial would enable you to easily do both at the same time

Exactly; this question is just an excuse to procrastinate.
