The Ultimate Guide to Pixel Arts

Hey everyone! This is the ultimate guide to pixel arts! Here, I have tried to list everything about pixel arts.

BumpSplatGamingCo.’s method

This is a tutorial on how to make BumpSplatGamingCo.’s pixel art method. This way is a lot easier for the maker, although the load time is slower. Here’s how it works!

To make any size of a pixel art, it only requires one object. Create a blank text. Under that text, put in this code:

When Game Starts,
Set “Pixel Size” to “(however big you want your pixels to be)”
Repeat times “Pixel Size”,
Create a Clone if this Object
End
End

When “Object is Cloned”
Set position to X “Original object X position” Y “Original object Y position - self clone index”
Red Pixel
Black Pixel
Set Position to X “Original object X position - Pixel Size X 1,2,3…” Y “Original object Y position - Pixel Size X 1,2,3…”
Teal Pixel
Etc…
End

How to make a pixel:
Create a new rule. Inside the rule, out this code:

Draw a trail color “(pixel color)”
Set position to X “self X position + Pixel Size” Y “Self Y position”
End

So, that was probably really unclear, but that’s how you do it! :grinning:

Here are links to some projects with this method implemented:

BumpSplatGamingCo.’s method with improvements by FearlessPheonix

This method has a lot faster load time, but is a lot more arduous and harder for the maker than the original method. Each line of pixels requires a new object.

Here’s how:

Create a new blank text. Under that text, put this code:

If it’s the first line of pixels:

When Game starts,
Set “Pixel Size” to “(however big you want your pixels to be)”
Repeat times “Pixel Size”
Create a clone of this object
End
End

If it’s not the first line of pixels:

When Game Starts
Set position to X “”(previous line)” X position” Y “”(Previous Line)” Y position”
Repeat times “Pixel Size”
Create a clone of this object
End
End

Under all objects:

When object is cloned
Set position to X “”Original Object” X position” Y “”Original Object” Y position - self clone index”
Red pixel
Blue pixel
Green pixel
Etc…

How to make a pixel:

Title a new custom block the color you want the pixel to be. Inside that custom block, put this code:

Draw a trail color “(whatever color you want the pixel to be)”
Set position to X “”Self” X position + Pixel Size” Y “”Self” Y position”
End

How to make a pixel counter

A pixel counter will tell you the amount of pixels in a pixel art. Here’s how to make one:

Inside every pixel, put a:
Increase “Pixel Count” by “1”

Create a new blank text. Drag it to the bottom left corner. Add this code inside it:

When Game Starts
Set Size to “50”
Create a clone of this object
End

When Game is playing
Check once if “Self clone index = 1”
Set text to “Round Pixel count :heavy_division_sign: Pixel Size” color “(doesn’t really matter)”
End
End

When Object is cloned
Set text to “Pixel Count:” color “(same as the original object)”
Set Size to “50”
Set position to X “”Original object” X position” Y “”Original Object” Y position”
End

Okay. So, those are the things I know. If you know more things about pixel arts, tag me with them in this topic, and I will add them. Thanks!
