My intention with this thread is to list every active pixel art related tutorial that exists at the same rate i learn from them. Most resources are outdated or scattered (if i fail i'll contribute to the chaos).
I'll post both links plus mirrors to avoid their lost.

Therefore, i will update this thread as time goes by.

I try to keep a current list in the gallery in the links section but if you find good ones not listed that is great.

Im glad you liked it. I'm now more interested in art general tutorials, since i think i have covered the best resources out there for learing pixel art. I'm following one for anatomy, that's the reason i have not updated the thread in a while. Cheers!

Bumping this thread. I have added a new category, pixel art vídeos. I'll check out these vídeos before pixeling, because i see in them a good resource for learning.

Ah, to think it's been like two years since my last post in this thread. However from time to time I keep up to date this thread.

If you find good tutorials or youtube channels, please let me know.

We need a tutorial on how to properly setup Blender with shaders to render limited palette artwork. I can't figure that out by myself to save my life!
Also, a tutorial on various tileset formats, especially isometric and hexagonal, would be nice, listing their pros and cons. You can have great art, but if tileset structure is bad, if will either look horrible or you will have to do a lot more work than required on transition tiles.
