Fantastic App

I’ve always wanted to make sprites, even animated ones, and this app hits pretty much every nail on the head in this regard. You can also save the sprites as images, including animated gifs to your phone/tablet, which makes it even better.

If I have one gripe, it’s that the “Copy Color” option to transfer a specific color to all other animation frames doesn’t work, forcing me to have to manually change the color of each unique sprite in said animation. Not the worst thing in the world, but makes things a tad more tedious; an update to fix this would take this app from being excellent to perfect.

My personal favorite pixel art tool

This is my personal favorite pixel art tool personally. Also to keep in mind I am an amateur and I have very crappy handwriting. However how this works is that everything is grid based. You chose a color and put that color in that tiny square on the grid. (It more works like a very tiny paint bucket tool for each square.) That personally makes it very convenient for me and I will recommend anyone who is interested on getting into Pixel art but doesn’t have much experience on it at all to get the PixelArt app.

Just fantastic

I’m a beginner in making pixel art and just wanted to try out some ideas for characters and landscapes for a game me and my friend are creating, and even though this app is free it is amazing! It is easy to use and you can even change the grid size throughout your drawing experience! You can save them to your photos and move your sprites around as well! Definitely worth the down load!
