moving pixel icon tutorial by Silly-Peach moving pixel icon tutorial by Silly-Peach
A basic tutorial showing you how to animate and simply shade a pixel icon! You can use any image you like, the one I have used is just an example and a way for you to do a test and see if you are following right :)


FOR THE NEWEST VERSION OF GIMP:

I have created another tutorial to help with saving on the new GIMP 2.8 which can be found here: [link]


Saving as animation is different on the new version so please use it if you get stuck! YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO PUT THE WORD (LAYER #)(REPLACE) IN YOUR LAYER NAME! JUST MAKE SURE THAT THEY LAYERS ARE IN THE ORDER THAT YOU WANT THEM TO ANIMATE INT!!

So can you set these as your profile picture? And if you do what size does it need to be? This was great by the way it was very clear :)

This helped a ton! I've been playing with making icons in my old GIMP version, and I couldn't figure out for the life of me why the transparent layers kept overlapping.
