A New, Easier Way To Make Pixel Art and Animated Sprites
Pixelmash is a new kind of pixel art and animation tool that makes quick work of many of the hardest parts of pixel art. Paint or import high-resolution artwork and then non-destructively pixelize it, animate layers using transforms, and apply advanced layer effects to create stunning art in no time. Mix and match hi-res layers with traditional hand-drawn pixel-by-pixel layers for incredible flexibility!
Pixelmash was recently updated to 2020 version, with new features including:
- Added save and load custom layer effects
- Added save project as template (saves all layer effects)
- Added color profile support and management
- Added gradient effect
- Added reference image/layer support
- Added ability to make parent layer effects not affect children
- Added ability to paint anywhere in tiled view
- Bug fixes
In the video below we showcase the features and functionality of this interesting pixel art application.
