Animated Pixel Icon Tutorial by serajaa Animated Pixel Icon Tutorial by serajaa

My very first tutorial :squee: A friend requested me to make a tutorial on how I do my icons, so here it is! Thanks a lot for reading the whole thing, and sorry if the text is a bit too small OTL. Hope it's helpful, and if you have any questions, just ask and I'll be happy to answer them :D

Finished icon: Pancham icon - Free to use by Linkinparks

Remember an icon has to be 50px by 50px and not larger than 15 KB, otherwise you can't use it as an avatar on dA >n< (To know this beforehand will save a lot of struggling and deleting layers later, trust me :C)

Good luck with making your icons, I'd love to see what y'all created! :salute:

Yay, good luck! Well, GIMP (which I use) is a free program so I'd definitely recommend it, since it's easy to use too :3 :D
