hey.

1. you can use Photoshop or any program really, no matter how basic, but i like to use Photoshop at 600% zoom with a 1px grid.
2. look the tutorial at: http://pixelfreak.com/
3. learn from looking at other pixel artists work, like http://eboy.com

I would start by joining up at Pixelation: http://pixelation.swoo.net/

This is a great community of pixel artists, many of them very famous (designers for games like The Zelda series, etc.). I'm a member here and I have learned a lot.

Go to View > Grid. You can also set the grid size in Preferences.

Your welcome :) Here's another good resource: http://www.kirupa.com/forum/showthread.php?s=7334363d9d4f6ff1c4aa9e024f7e8d2e&p=738437#post738437

Check out the first post in that thread. B3NKobe gives some great links to pixel art tutorial sites and he also has a link in his post to download a Zip file of his own pixel tutorial.

what i did, to make my life easier is, make my own custom brushes, that is like a line at the right angle, so you make like 8 or whatever lines, about 4 bricks long, made my life quite a bit easier, and no its NOT cheating :lol

sorry if they mentioned that in the tutorials, i havnt read em ;)
