Pixel Artist: Make 2D drawings easily and become a pixel artist!

15-20 years ago, almost all the games were in 2D and it was fun. Although it's been a long time, I still love 2D games, as you know, 2D games are still being played on PCs and mobile platforms. The art of 2D drawing is called "pixel art". I think "pixel art" applications are a very fun tool for those who have spare time. If you like 2D drawing, this application and article is for you. You don't have an internet connection and you're bored? Instead of spending your time with playing games, just draw and have fun. You can make simple and very cool drawings, also I did an android game by making 2D drawings, you can do it too! It's really fun and reminds people of old 2D games. This is literally retro!
Anyone who uses Pixel Artist can really become a pixel artist, because it's easy to use and the settings are simple. The buttons and menu of the application consist of small 2D pixel icons. These buttons look really cute! There are some hidden tips in the application, these features are related to color selection and pallet system. I will explain in detail Pixel Artist's cool features and hidden tips.

Let's take a look at some additional features about the Pixel Artist

Home Screen

When you enter the application, the first screen that appears is the drawing screen. The Pixel Artist doesn't have many additional features, the user interface is quite simple and very easy to use. Unlike normal Pixel Art apps, the Pixel Artist offers you an expandable drawing screen to the left and right.

The Pixel Artist application offers 29 colors to artists using the application. when you switch between colors, the white part (palette) at the bottom of the screen changes to the color you selected.

Don't like the 29 colors in Pixel Artist? No problem! If you long press on any color, as you see above, you can replace the existing colors with the new color you set.

If you want to start drawing, first select a color and click on any of the squares on the screen. If you want to delete the previous movement, select the background color from the palette and click on the movement you want to delete.

The "Fill drawable area" button at the top right of the screen, fills the entire drawing screen with the color you select.


You can delete the grid lines by clicking the grid icon at the top right of the page (to the right of the "Fill drawable area" button).

These are the tools needed for pixel drawing. Now let's have a look at the options on the hamburger menu.

Hamburger Menu

The first option of the hamburger menu is "New", you can open a new and blank page using the new option. Remember that, if you have not saved your current drawing, the "New" option will delete your drawing.

If you use the "Open" option, you can only open drawings that you have made in the Pixel Artist application and saved with a custom file name. So to use this option, you must save at least one drawing with the "Save" option.

The third option of the hamburger menu is "Save", with the Save option, you can give your drawing a name and store it in the Pixel Atrist app. Remember that, the saved drawings are only stored in the memory of the Pixel Artist application. If you want to save them to your gallery, you need to use the Export feature.

And the last option of the hamburger menu is "Export". This option is my favorite Pixel Artist feature. It saves my drawings to the gallery of my device very quickly. In addition, the 2D drawings take up very little memory.



This blog post is based on my knowledge of the Pixel Artist open source app and based on my experience with the app. All the images I used are screenshots/gifs from my mobile device.


In this blog post, I have reviewed Pixel Artist application. This application is a drawing application. The application works properly and easy to use. The application has a really simple interface. Anyone who wants to draw can easily use this application. To be honest, the other drawing applications have a lot more additional features than Pixel Artist. But the Pixel Artist app is yet a new app. It's also an open source application. So I'm using this app to support open source ecosystem. Everything for the open source ecosystem! I hope that I helped those who want to use Pixel Artist application through this blog post.


You can create new 2D drawings. If you want to continue your drawings later, you can save them. The next day you can open your drawings and continue drawing. After finishing your drawing, you can save it to your gallery with export feature.
It's brief summary of the application: Open the application, draw, save, open your drawing, draw and save it to your gallery with export. The use of the application is quite simple, even 5-6 year old children who can read and write can use this application easily and improve their intelligence. They don't even need to know how to read and write, they can have fun just by drawing!
This is my second blog post, I'm sorry if I made mistakes in my writing and presentation. Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog post. I hope you enjoyed this post. See you in my next blog post, take care yourself and stay tuned! :)

Thank you so much for your valuable comment, if I'm not bothering you, I want to know my mistakes.


I will cite a few examples for you:

15-20 years ago, almost all the games were in 2D and it was fun.

This one should read: "Fifteen to twenty years ago, almost all games were 2D and it was fun." (Saying "all the games" would imply that you are referring to a specific list of games.)

In this blog post, I have reviewed Pixel Artist application.

This sentence should read: "In this blog post, I have reviewed the Pixel Artist application."

So I'm using this app to support open source ecosystem.

This one should read: "So I'm using this app to support the open source ecosystem."

After finishing your drawing, you can save it to your gallery with export feature.

This would be a better sentence: "After finishing your drawing, you can save it to your gallery with the export feature."

I hope you will find this comment useful.

Ahh, got it! I appreciate you helping me. Have a great day! :)
