Yes, Procreate can make pixel art if you set up the platform yourself and make the required adjustments. It doesn’t have default settings for creating pixel art right from the start, but it’s not that hard to get it ready.
What size canvas should I use for pixel art?
When that’s not the case and I need the whole screen to show a landscape, then I usually work at 640×360, which scales up to full HD by a multiple of 3. To start off, I would recommend 320×180, as it’s a good balance in size, and as a bonus it can fit the widest range of high resolutions.
Can you draw in pixels on Procreate?
Well, Procreate isn’t a pixel art program the same way as Pixaki for example. If you draw between two pixels on the screen you’ll most likely end up colouring both pixels even with a one pixel wide brush. The same is when you paint on the point on screen where the corners of four pixels meet.
What do pixel artists use?
Pixel art is a form of digital art, created through the use of software, where images are edited on the pixel level. The aesthetic for this kind of graphics comes from 8-bit and 16-bit computers and video game consoles, in addition to other limited systems such as graphing calculators.
What is a good resolution for pixel art?
In general, at the time of writing this post, if you’re publishing for PC you are looking at a vast majority of users with 2 resolutions: mostly “full-HD” (1920×1080 pixels, often called 1080p) and a good deal of 1280×720 (often called 720p).
What resolution should I use for pixel art?
Making a pixel art game? Use 640×360 if possible! That scales evenly to 720p (x2), 1080p (x3), 1440p (x4) and 4k (x6)! 320×180 works just as well, if you want lower resolution.
Does dpi matter in pixel art?
dpi makes no difference when creating pixel art; it’s how many pixels there are in one inch when printing.
