General Discussion / Re: Tool for single pixel width curves

What I often do is use the straight line tool, instead. The difference is that every time you make the curve turn you have to start a new angle with the line tool, but it really allows all the control doing it with a pencil would and it is a bit faster

I was also wondering, what do you do when a line is at a *bad* angle? For example, it it has slope 2/5, do you draw it by alternating rows of three pixels followed by rows of two pixels?

I just downloaded GraphicsGale to try out their curve tool, which produces single-pixel width curves but doesn't always avoid jaggies. So even though there are a lot of tools out there for creating pixel art, cleaning up outlines is still always done by hand?

Hi all,

I'm a noob at pixel art looking to learn some drawing techniques through this forum. All the tutorials say that pixel art edges should be drawn one-pixel width. My question, are there any tools that automatically convert splines (Bezier curves or other splines) into single pixel width curves? If not, do you follow some sort of algorithm when thinning curves or is it more by intuition?
