so what you did is uhh. Start with the black outline of your fella. Then make the bland colors without the shading. Then you take off the outline and then you shade. But how. It does look like it's dithering but then there are just other pixels that are put there But then how do you know the parts you should and not shade. There is litterly a big change when talking about the machine and the lighting is complete insanity. Conclusion: I genuinely don't know. As a pixel artist myself who draws characters with simple shading caring more about the design I would not get this type of shading on anything i have made. Because it's seriously the most mind-boggling type of shading, lighting, and then just like HOW. I just don't know. The only thing i do know is that you didi use mirror so at least i got you there

BoJustBo responds:

Now why would I remove the lineart? This is pixelart, I can just draw right on top of something and it wont leave a trace of what was there before.

I think the main gap in your understanding is that of anti-aliasing.
I am working on a pretty comprehensive set of tutorials of which I have already uploaded two parts. Do check em out if you want to learn how I make my art.
