Pixel Art Master Course - Beginner to Professional/Freelance

This course teaches everything about pixel art for video games. From the very basics to the advanced techniques. Students will learn about lines, shapes, colour theory and harmony, creating a colour palette, designing characters, backgrounds, items, making animation and even how to start freelancing. You will also learn a lot about game design principles.

If you are new to art or pixel art and want to create better art for your indie games then this course is for you.

This course is always growing with new lessons (you can check the future planned lessons in a document available on the Discord server). If there is a topic that you would like me to cover, you can message me and I will make it. I am on Udemy and Discord server every day so you can easily get into contact with me.

Discord (1000+ members) also provides certain benefits once you reach a certain role on the server such as getting access to exclusive channels. The wonderful community there also provides a place for you to share your work, get feedback or even just hang out and chill with people of similar interest. Connect and work with other people on game jams (if you want). Yes, even if you want to find game coders and music compositors (or if you're one who's looking for an artist).  There are also indie devs who code and do the art themselves.

This course will strengthen your foundations in art and pixel art. It will build your confidence in your art and give you the information you need to continue improving your pixel art and start making money. 

By the time you finish the course, you will already have a portfolio for different game genres with practical game design. 

This course has 3 big parts: beginner [B], intermediate [I] and advanced [A]. Each section is marked with a letter inside square brackets at the end of it's title with corresponding difficulty.

I am available on Udemy and Discord every day - to give you feedback, to help you overcome your limits, to help you become a better artist in fun and relaxing way. I'm here for you every step of the way if you need me.

easy to understand in 6 reviews

While I found Mislav's English mostly clear and easy to understand, his accent frequently makes the subtitles incorrect.

The instructor speaks very clearly and is easy to understand.

Of the 3 courses I brought for pixel art this one is the best so far Easy to learn with so far I'm Brazilian, My english is not so good, but, the teacher just explain too much well, so , It's easy to understand Курс определенно нравится, без особого знания английского языка все понимаю.

Even though I'm not that deep in this course (yet) everything has been very clear and easy to understand I have learned a lot of great and practial things that boosted my skills and I highly recommend this course to you.

Everything is easy to understand So far its looking interesting Really like the pacing of the lectures, still haven´t seen a lot though helpful tips and a good introduction Early going, but really liking the detail and precision in the lectures.

feel like in 6 reviews

it makes me feel like don't just care a bout the money.

There are other parts like making a platformer or making a top-down game that I didn't watch because I don't feel like those things apply to me.

In this course taught by Mislav, I feel like I'm learning to draw by building a foundation of skills and then expanding them.

I feel like a lot of the material out there is less grounded in proper technique.

I feel like I'm better than I was when I started.

being in the discord group and getting direct answer on my comments with your challenges makes me feel like you actually care personally for your students and wants us to succeed.
