General Discussion / Please help with determining canvas size
« on: October 23, 2020, 11:42:29 am »

I am new to pixel art and currently trying Aseprite for the first time. Online I see all these crazy large art works, but what size does a canvas need te be?

For example this beautiful piece by Dmitry Petyakin:

When I load it in Aseprite it says: 1280 x 960
But when I zoom in, 1 pixel on the artwork is actually 4 pixels large. DO I just divide it by 4 then? So it leaves me with roughly 320 x 260? That seems awfully small for a piece like this.


General Discussion / Perspective in Pixel art
« on: September 24, 2020, 11:09:18 am »
When concentrating on buildings and especially 1bit shops (for some reasons there are many shops in 1bit pixel art) I have some troubles with perspectives.

I am not an artist and never took drawing lessons. But when I study pixel art it always seems that 1 bit pixel buildings do not follow the rules of perspective and while mostly viewed from the corner of the building only have horizontal lines. Perspective is given with shadows and gradients.

Why is this?
