Was wondering how many of you (have/are working on/plan on getting) a degree in art and where you (got/are getting/will get) it from.

-Turn off Anti-Aliasing for everything (not just fill tool and pencil tool - EVERYTHING).
-Rotate and/or resize (not ImageSize, mind you..) with Transform Controls w/out AAing...
-Paste WITHIN layers (rather than creating a new layer, combining with the next layer, then moving it around... what a chore!).
-Make Line Tool show what it's going to do before it does it in pixels.
-Change pencil tool to be square (I'm sure this one's easy - I just don't know it, though)
-Turn a pixel grid (similar to the zoom in Ctrl+G grid of MSPaint)

(I'm using the CS3 beta, so some of this might not be in your version)

I think the global removal of AA you're looking for is under
"Edit>Preferences>General>Image Interpolation"
I would say probably nearest neighbor is your best bet, It's worked well for me for some other pixel stuff. I haven't tried it but I'm pretty sure that's it.

For the line tool... I'm guessing you're aware that you can hold shift to constrain the line to certain angles, I'm pretty sure there's some way (although I can't remember what it is) that you can edit those angles. Would that help you? Most of the time the line it makes is jagged and not precise enough for pixel art anyways.

If you can't get square brush settings working, you could just make your own... I haven't made any in forever, but I think you can do it by just making a new image with whatever dimensions (square, obviously), filling it with black, and going to Edit>Define Brush Preset. If that doesn't work, you need a selection of some kind.

Pasting without making a new layer should be pretty easy, but I can't find it. I'll ask around and get back to you.

Well, I hate to sound like a dick (and be a thread necromancer), but wouldn't I have fixed them if I had recognized them to begin with?

The black outline on the mouth is pretty distracting.

another one to look for is the Faeries' Oracle. It's similar to a tarot deck if you're in to that kind of thing, but I've found it to be a very profound source of inspiration and insight.

I believe my mom has this. I see it lying around the house now and then.

I'm so cool, I didn't even notice that blatantly obvious pattern. Nevermind, that works just as well. I was just thinking there should be some reference to bit numbers. Apparently there is.

Ranks should all be powers of two, if you ask me.

The swords stick out to me, or the lines for them anyways.

People besides myself have line theory explained:

Larwick: You're not the first one actually, lot of people make that mistake for some reason :D

Awesome!  :y:

Is that 'tree-oh' or 'try-it'?

I realize double posting isn't in the best of web etiquette, but I figure it's been two days and I've made a fair amount of edits.

This is where I am with it right now:

Dithering is more difficult than I had initially thought.
