A New, Easier Way To Make Pixel Art and Animated Sprites

Pixelmash is a new kind of pixel art and animation tool that makes quick work of many of the hardest parts of pixel art. Paint or import high-resolution artwork and then non-destructively pixelize it, animate layers using transforms, and apply advanced layer effects to create stunning art in no time. Mix and match hi-res layers with traditional hand-drawn pixel-by-pixel layers for incredible flexibility!

Some Really Cool Ways Pixelmash Makes Pixel Art Easier

  • Create rigged characters using parented layers for easy character animation with keyframes.
  • Create template files with layers and effects pre-set-up to easily create amazing art.
  • Mix and match traditional pixel-perfect and dynamic-resolution layers.
  • When you paint your underlying art in hi-res, it's easy to make a ton of assets at different resolutions.
  • There are infinite ways to combine layer effects for easily-editable, non-destructive pixel art.
  • Import high-res art, animate it with transforms, and use layer effects for outlines and other effects.

Try it for free, you’ll be surprised at how fast it is to create iconic video game art.
