    Many games you can play directly in your browser without any plugin.

    Your browser must support HTML 5. Most modern browser will work with the exception of Internet Explorer.

    Great inspiration for pixel artists as well as game programmers.

    A published ebook of pixel art tutorials available on Amazon. Costs $0.99 for 8 lessons (plus three appendices) over 207 pages. In-depth explanation of topics from "what is pixel art" to "clusters" to "color theory" and "style," with easy-to-follow language and an abundance of pictures. Great for the brand new pixel artist and the veteran alike!

    Jon Purdy (evincarofautumn) & Kevin Chaloux (Kaiseto) of Purloux Studios have made one of the easiest and comprehensible pixelart basics tutorial to be found. It covers all the basics, from lineart, coloring, specific techniques, and opinions on creating pixelart.

    "If you are new to pixelart and can ony read one tutorial, this is the one."

    At the end of the Anti-Aliasing (AA) section is a link to their comprehensive Anti-Aliasing tutorial which is a must see/read. It is a detailed overview of the theory/process of AA. It is comprehensive enough for beginners who understand nothing or little about AA.
