I tried pixel art from scratch, gave up. I don't know enough about colors and jaggies are my worst enemy. Anyways I like the tree, maybe this link can help out? Comforumforumposts

I did a few pixel arts back in the day (and a lot in my most recent Splatoon 2 artworks).
Tip: I see you enlarged the character in the picture (at least I'm very sure you did), it's a lot easier if you just keep the original size and draw on that size instead so you can just use a 1px pencil to draw/color and keep a consistent line size + pixel art (especially maplestory related) looks better if you keep the original size.

It looks really nice though, I think it may look even better on the original character size!

@HawtNoodle ah, yeah, i've been drawing w/ 1x for most of it. yeah, i decided to make the base 2x it's original size, hoping my blind self will have less trouble. i hate zooming in super close because the grid layout confuses me i will try taking your advice next time i try again!

@Kaneki I'm not sure if this works but I found this: Click on 'View' then go down to 'Pixel Grid' and uncheck it. It should get rid of the grid.
