Silber, a game developer and pixel artist, explains how to create pixel art in games. He covers why to use pixel art, the principles of drawing with pixels, and how to use color palettes, create and use tiled backgrounds, create animation, build graphics to meet a game's technical requirements, and connect with game developers who need pixel art, as well as software, lines, shading and shadow, and things to avoid, ending with interviews with game developers James Petruzzi of Discord Games, Jochum Skoglund of Crackshell, and Dave Preston of Heart Machine.
