    I am looking for some good pixel art tutorials, specifically isometric ones.
    This is for my major project in my final year at uni, I am considering the isometric pixel route for the game.

    So far my decent games haven't had graphics drawn be myself and I want to say that, yes I actually did the graphics for this game and the look awesome.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Tried looking on deviantART for Pixel Art Tutorials (try)?

    I made a Pixel ID one (link), but it doesn't cover the Pixel Art part. [​IMG]

    I remember when I was good at pixel art, back when I was 13.

    I concur with Derek Yu pixel art tut.

    I like http://www.rhysd.com/tutorial/ as it's pretty indepth from basic stuff, to the more advanced.

    Amm , I am not a great pixel artist , But I do know a way which helped me draw (in general) better ,

    1 , See how others draw Pixel Art , The way is really helpful in both photoshop and drawing..
    2 , if you wanna get better in pixel art , Go to Mario Kart DS go for the emblem options and try your drawings , It's easily watched on the upper screen so you'll understand faster many small things...
    3 , Picross really helped me in that direction , It has many small drawings which showed me some tricks in pixel art , I'd say even cheat the game just to see the final effort , because I learnt alot from both Mario Kart DS and Picross in pixel section.

    Those are just 3 tips which helpd me a bit by bit to learn to draw pixel art better..
