How are Pixel Art Styles Created?

To create the pixel art style, use pixels as the basic unit of composition. Use low-resolution graphics software or manually place individual pixels on a grid to create simple and pixelated images or animations. Use retro video games and computer graphics from the 8-bit and 16-bit era as inspiration to create a nostalgic and minimalist aesthetic.
