Pixel Art

by Dorian SRED



This is an introductory workshop on pixel art, an art form from 80/90’s video games but still efficient and modernized. No need to know how to draw.
We will focus specifically on:

  • character design
  • different styles of pixel art/resolution/proportion
  • colors
  • animations
  • motion blur


The workshop will be taking place on Thursday, October 26th from 6 PM – 8 PM in 11.425 at the EV building of Concordia University (metro Guy-Concordia) (NB: We may change rooms depending on the size of the group).

Participants must bring:

  • A laptop with Aseprite (mac, pc, linux ; Free if you compile it or 14.99$).
  • A Mouse.
