Hey, what´s up ! I am Arthur Siqueira and welcome to another tutorial, this time I will teach you how to create a PIXEL ART in Illustrator to have your vector image. At First It seems to be a simple task, but even when i wanted to create this type of art i Had trouble to finding good tutorials on the internet and i found a few ways that in my opinion are not so good at all. For example, a technique using the Rectangular Grid Tool and then paint the grid with the live Paint Bucket, , this method even works, but it´s a little heavy for generating a grid, difficult to clean the lines and in some cases when you export the image to other programs appear white lines spoiling the image. Therefore, I thought it best to use another technique a little more obvious and much easier to edit and manipulate. The first step is pick your pixel art, there are many images on the internet and you can find via google. I recommend this site www.sprites-resource.com because it brings together what is best in sprites of old games. After choosing your Sprite, open the Adobe Illustrator. To use the technique you need to set some adjustments, go to Edit>Preferences>Guides & Grid. On the GRID set the grid line to 1 pixel and put 1 to subdivision. Now we are ready to start, I like to set a size for the Airboard but this can be changed later easily. Check the box Align New Objects to a Pixel Grid. To view the grid go to View>Show Grid, and then select Snap to Grid. Now it´s time to put your art on the Airboard, I´m using this example image because some images do not open with the right size in pixels, if this happens just resize the image to the original size in pixels, perfect alignment. The way I´m going to show you now is that I particularly think faster and easier. I like to leave the Image Guide below and set the opacity to 70% or less, then it gets easier to visualize the color fills, but before that, we will prepare the color palette. Now just use the Rectangle tool and start drawing over the image, , that with low opacity you´ll see where it filled already. After filling the whole Picture I recommend collapse the colors in one object, to do this just go to Select>Same Fill Color, then apply the MERGE from the PATHFINDER menu. Now you have your Sprite Pixel Art vector, and fully loyal to the pixel x pixel size, and you can use it to animate or print. That´s it, thank you for following the tutorial!
