New Pixel Art Plan
I've been brainstorming ways to more easily turn my pencil and paper art skills to become my mouse and pixel art skills. I've decided that the best way to go about it is to simply draw assets I want on paper, scan them in with my printer, play with the size, then start lining up pixels. Drawing all the environmental stuff and complex characters from scratch using only MS Paint pixels ranges from hard to impossible, but drawing what I imagine on paper comes naturally.
I'm going to give this idea a try. Filling up a sheet of copy paper with doodles of things I need (drawn approximately to scale) with details included. I can scan the sheet and start making all my pixel art then touching the sprites up in Gimp.
