Hi all! This pixel art animation is 150x150px using 7 colors and 40 hand drawn frames. I quadrupled the resolution for viewing purposes. It took me around 3 working days to draw and animate the snow with different colors!

Hey, so I have seen people post pixel art all the time on Reddit, but how does one make these?

Is it an actual animation or is it made like stop motion films and you make a couple different version of the same scene and give it an animated effect?

This is how I do it: I create a canvas in MS Paint. Draw the background without the elements I want to animate. Then I open the file using Aseprite or Photoshop because I can create layers and frames there. For this particular piece, I created 40 layers and 40 frames. Each later is turned on in its equivalent frame. Then I drew the snow pixels, move to the next frame and draw more snow and so on.

How many frames is that?
