Pixel art grid is a wonderful way to make your own art in an instant.

It’s a neat little tool for those of us who like to experiment with the visual side of the art medium.

In this post, I’m going to share how to create a pixel art grid in Photoshop.

In the future, we’ll be building a more advanced tutorial for pixel art grids.

If you’ve ever used a free online sketching app, you’ll recognize this technique: you take a sketch, line it up, and start painting.

Pixel art grids are the same way: you sketch out a grid of pixels, and fill it in with colored elements.

Here are some tips and tricks for creating your own pixel art.


Choose a size and shape.

We’re using a 16×16 pixel grid, which is the same size as the size of the grid in the Photoshop Elements grid tool.

This gives us a bit of room for flexibility when choosing the shape of the pixel grid.

I chose a square with a circle at the bottom, because that’s the default size for the grid, but it doesn’t always work for us.

If we want to fill in the edges of the square, we could do it by selecting a color from the palette.

But the edges won’t be as smooth.

This is OK if you’re going to be working with a single element.

Just draw the whole thing once.

We want to use the grid to fill up the corners of the squares.


Make the grid smaller.

This step can be a little tricky if you’ve never done it before.

To make the grid bigger, you can either select the top and bottom corners of a pixel from the bottom or the top corner of a rectangle from the top.

You can also make the corners smaller by dragging a small slider.

To fill in all of the edges, select all the corners and use the drag to make them bigger.


Paint the grid.

The final step is to paint the grid with the paint tool.

Paint an empty circle and make a smooth, uniform line through it.

Paint a line from one corner to the other, then paint that line in the same direction as the line you just made.

Now, you have a grid!

We can fill it up with colored squares, or fill it with lines that make the whole grid bigger.

Here’s how we can make a pixel grid in Illustrator.

To add a grid to your drawing, open up Illustrator and create a new layer.

In your new layer, add a new color to your canvas, then go to the Fill menu, and select the Fill Tool.

Make sure you click Fill Fill at the top of the Fill dialog.

You’ll see a list of options.

Fill in the Fill tool.

Fill the Fill icon with a value of zero.

Select Fill.

Now you have the Fill tools on your toolbar.

Make a selection of the new color.

Use the mouse wheel to select the Color Tool, then click OK.

You should now have a rectangle with a line running down the middle.

Paint it, making sure to leave a gap in between the lines.

The result should look something like this: The line will be painted out, and you can see the line of pixels in the middle of the rectangle.

When you’re finished, save the new layer and load it into Photoshop.


Select a color and apply it.

If your color has an intensity, you might want to add it to the color palette.

You could do this by clicking on the Color tab in the Color palette, then selecting the Add to Color dialog box.

This will bring up a list where you can choose the value of the color.

Choose one of the options in the dialog box, then right-click the selection, and choose Add to Selection.

You’re now ready to apply your color.

Open up the Color Tools and select a color, like the one we just made with the Paint Tool.

You don’t have to select an exact color, but try to select something close to the center of the image.

This should give you a nice color that looks like this.

If there are no more options, then just drag the selection around the color so that it is centered.

If that doesn’t work, go back to the Color tool and click the Toolbox button.

Click on the Edit icon in the top-left corner of the Toolbar.

In Edit Mode, you should see the option Color Tool in the palette you just added to your palette.

Click the Color icon to apply a color to the selected color.


Select an image, then fill it.

You now have your pixel art done!

You can use the Fill feature to create different patterns of pixels.

You may want to create stripes, or circles, or dots.

You also can make different colors to create individual pieces.

In order to do this, we need to select a layer.

To do this in Illustration, open your layer
