ya, using the pencil tool is exactly what you want to do, but not the brush, blur, opacity or any other effects.  pixel art in its truest form is each pixel placed with care by hand (although the fill tool is accepted).  the way i taught my brother that seemed to help him out is "if you dont have strict control over the pixels and the colors (ie anti-aliasing/blur), its not pixel art."

keep it up, that line art looks great

Do the same thing agian just with no blur - then it will be pixel-art, obviously not a masterpiece but everyone starts somewhere.

reading through these forums and there are loads of pixelart tutorials all over the web will really help you  ;D

Yup, that's it!

That qualifies as "Pixel Art."

Congratulations and welcome aboard ;)

Things to remember in photoshop:

Check to be sure your magic wand and paint bucket filler tools are not using anti-alias selective ability, and set the threshold for their fill/selecting to 0. This should save you some grief with doing fills and selects.

These are great linearts and you're getting the idea with shading on  your second work. Like it was mentioned, just surf around the site for inspiration if you need any, and keep on going, since you have great promise! Welcome to Pixelation!!
