Just a question guys , is there a book about pixel art and all.

It would be better if I read it from the books,right?

There isn't even a decent knowledge base right now, but that doesn't really matter for you, as 90% of pixel art is traditional art study. Try getting a book on sketching which deals with volumes.

The perfect book for you seems to "Fun with a pencil" by Andrew Loomis

it's best to think of pixels as being a kind of paint. Just like watercolor or oil there are a pro's and con's to using it and there are some tricks to get better results. But no matter what kind of paint you use, the more you know about good illustration and design principals the better the results will be. So the better you get at drawing, the better your pixel art will get.

All that to say, there may be some book somewhere about pixel art but it's not the best way to learn. The "tricks" of pixel art are easy to learn but good illustration and design techniques require practice.

This is the pixel art section, you're not exactly supposed to post sketches here, but I'll give you some advice on how to get better at trees and pixelling them: Draw from reference or from life. Not just trees, other still life will help you as well, apples, bananas, shoes, trash cans, etc. You need to definitely learn the basics of art, it will take time for you to improve but I promise it will pay off, you need to go grab yourself an actual sketchbook from your hobby store and some art pencils, I use 6B lead myself, and start drawing things around you. Remember, all pixelling is is just another medium of art, there are no shortcuts to getting better at any kind of art, you just have to practice, practice, practice.

Pixel art comes from your drawing skills in real life like you can use it as a reference, thats why I post it here and see if it's okay or not and redraw again till it reach to a nice looking tree and try to pixel it :D

Have you tried reading the book I suggested? It's really going to help.

The problem is I can't purchase the book.

Even so my dad won't purchase it for me.
