In the 1990s, the advancement in the techniques for pixel manipulation and the availability of video games allowed graphic designers to specialize in working on computer graphics. Now, pixel artists are considered an important faction within the professional graphic design community. They preserve this retro subculture and utilize it to connect with users from this era despite the modern capabilities of today's user interfaces. In this course, you'll learn how to produce pixel art using various methods and software that you'll be able to incorporate into your games, mobile apps, and web applications.
