    I've just recently gained interest into 2d game development, i have experience in programming but i need an artist to share some newbie tips for me related to drawing pixel art, im looking for ways of making a good posture for a character, shading tips, maybe some recommended pixel canvas size, and any tips on 2d drawing pretty much. I own a sofware called Marmoset Hexels 3 but i can do well with photoshop or any other app really.

    Thanks to anyone in advance.

    I watched video tutorials on cntrlpaint.com and googled other little stuff such as shading and adding lights.

    I'm still learning myself, but I like using Piskel! It's a free to use site that lets you create pixel art sprites and animations, size your canvas however you like, work with layers and customizable palettes, and lets you upload as gifs on URL, download as sprite sheets, and tons of other options!

    A couple things I've done using Piskel:

    Hope this helps!
