After stumbling upon page after page figuring out how to make a pixel template, I’ve found the easiest way! At least I hope so. Since iPhones and iPads are so popular why not use them? Its much easier then trying to learn/pay for Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and similar programs.
If you are a pixel art lover, you shouldn’t miss Dots!
Dots doesn’t have complex features. It totally focused on real pixel-art. Select a color and fill dots with it.
It’s so simple and easy!
After installing this app its pretty straight forward. It allows you to browse pictures on your device and set its opacity, enable the grid view, and start coloring! The lower the opacity the easier it is to see what your coloring. You are allowed to do a 32×32, 64×64 and 128×128 grids. Wish there were smaller options but it works great!
Some of the options:
- Pick Color
- Move Canvas
- Zoom In/Out
- Show/Hide Recent Colors
- Duplicate the work
- Delete the work
- Set Palette with current color
- Show guide images only
How To Make Minecraft Templates
Simply select the 32 x 32 grid, and let your art take you where you please.
However, once you are done your art piece, take a screen shot of the image with the grid behind it (On iPhone this is the Lock button + Home Button being pressed simultaneously).
