Resources & Inspiration

I hope these handy tools will guide you through collab 6!

Style wise you can go from classic Monkey Island over 16-bit JRPGs like Chrono Trigger to modern interpretations of pixel art like in FEZ

Here's a list with tools & resources:


Animated sprite editor & pixel art tool
This is one of the most popular sprite editing tools
A Paint .Net plugin for sprite animation
After Effects Animated Sprite Sheet Plugin

iT's For AfTEr EffECts

Pseudo-3D Model Tool

Probably an interesting method for achieving 3D effects on a fixed perspective camera - even 2kliksphilip made a vid about this technique

A Blender add-on for building tile based low-poly scenes with paint/map editor like tools
Simple fontsprite editing with lots of functions
Free, easy to use and flexible level editor.
Use this to lay out your tilemaps to create a map
Procedural pixel-art tile creator
This is basically Substance Designer Pixel - It isn't too feature rich, but the UI is pretty smexy. Use this for generating grouns & floor textures for example.
Dither Brushes for Photoshop (pressure optional).
A Small Pixel Art Animator, now with procedural generation capabilities
This basically does the same thing as tilemancer, but with a less nice UI and more options
Paint of Persia is a rotoscoping pixel-art tool
Generate dithering for pixel art!
