_________________________________
Pfffff finially I've finihed it! /// sigh
forgive me my mistakes in English ; n ;
This is my first tutorial, but I hope it can be helpful!
Feel free to ask questions if you don't understand something c: Also I'm going to make another tutorial about animation^^

As I said, please do not use my icon base or I will find you hehe :iconheplz:
And please, at least fav this tutorial if you use it c: Enjoy!
_________________________________

P.S. I save my icons in Photoshop as GIFs c: The background is transparent, I don't have layer with white bg!
You can also save it as png file with transparent background in SAI, but you won't be able to add animation then.

:star:You also may use one of my free icons! :star:

Is the base free to use? Cuz I've seen this deviant Snowball242 used your base. The base looks like it is from you. 

Go here:sukiie.deviantart.com/art/Bow-… and you'll see it

You may have figured it out by now, but as long as they have all the right tools (resizing the base layer, a pixel brush, transparency), you should be able to!

I don't know why, but when I try to use my binary tool, it looks nothing like that.  Anyone have some suggestions? o-o

MAybe its because of either the size of the canvas or the size of the brush :3

I used to create my icons in photoshop but as I started working more and more with SAI this is useful to know!
(At least the thingy with the transparent brush instead of the eraser... <.<)

Not sure, if SAI has it, but you'd probably be able to work with masking layers too

Hi :)
I have a question. Is the resolution the size and width of the canvas or is it the resolution? Or does both setting have to be the same?
(I am using gimp)

:iconkijierqwert:
kijierqwert Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
The resolution determines how much pixels are in an inch for when you're printing artwork, so for pixel art it doesn't matter.
