Custom drawn pixel art

A feature I’d like to see in Hopscotch is:

A Pixel art drawing part of custom art pad for drawing custom art

I’d use it for this type of project:

Where you want your character to be pixel art, but you can’t really up make pixel art move easily. Even though you could get a custom image of pixel art already done on another app, that can be complicated and it would be easier to have it right in the app.

Here are some examples of Hopscotch code that could be improved if we had this:

Well any game such as a pixilated platformer

Here is an example design I’ve made:

Just a button to select this feature

I’ve seen something similar in another programming languages, it looks like this:

Well in scratch you can do this, but there isn’t a button for it, and in text coding languages you can.

I agree that this is a noice idea
I also think there should be an option that made a selected color transparent

I think but I’ve seen animated pixel arts before from text coding, so I guess

eh, you could use shapes—there’s methods

I guess this would be nice to see


but I’m 99% sure you can’t do this in text coding (like just draw an image pixelated)

Good idea! It would be better if I had the sub :pensive: but maybe it could be free? *wink wink THT

Can’t u just import an image tho?

You could, but it would be easier if you wanted to draw your own pixel art

In

(such as Python, Java, HTML, Javascript), we can import image files (png, jpg, jpeg, img) as sprites for the script to render.

This usually uses an image url (taking an image from the internet)

(www.exampleimage​.​com/image/you/are/looking/for.png)

Or a path (taking an image from within your computer/device storage)

(/home/users/Skytec/downloads/image/you/are/looking/for.png)

This wouldbe really cool.

Maybe someone in the community who understands save codes better then i can make it using them!

no, LR didn’t mean image, but drawing it on the code itself

You can kind of do this with Text Nodes (Objects).

Not sure this is a good idea.

(Which u can also do in hs)

Are you referring to text workarounds? Or the general idea of pixel art as a drawin* tool?
