Also, in general when doing bigger pixelart, even 320x240 or smaller (even sprites) precise lineart is not needed as a start imo, as one can clean up and polish until it works.

For this one X-Man (old demoscener) sure as hell did not use any lines, the nun was mostly eyeballed from a black and white photograph as far as i know

This of course goes for full rendering. If you want more comicstyle rendering with outlines I don't see the point in pixelling at all at that size and even tho, might just level the thing and clean up from there, just as fast/slow.

Aritriste: Could you post some pieces you have completed using this process?

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I will see to doing this, but currently focusing on the release of Aerion Online is taking priority as it is to be released January 28th. Thank you for understanding, yet I will get to an image(s) that have this method applied to them after the event and the stability of the game is realized. Thank you for understanding.

Are you spouting shit for the fun of it?

Is it me or this technique is just one of the dozens of "how to make clean outlines" tutorials in devianart?

Let us be unreasonably difficult. Let us refuse understanding.
