Make Pixel Art is a game-like drawing environment focused on creating low-res pixelized drawings.

It's easy enough for kids to use, but fully featured enough for designers and game developers! Perfect for making avatars, Minecraft skins, sprite sheets, cross-stitch patterns, icons, and retro doodles.

"Like Photoshop for aspiring 8-bit artists."
-- The Austin American-Statesman

Use drawing tools specifically designed for the creation of pixel art to create low resolution masterpieces. With multiple layers, advanced copy and paste tools, a magical outliner, and a unique color picker, making pixel art has never been easier. New features include 5 isometric tools to create 3-D landscapes and "save to camera roll," to export your pictures.

Make Pixel Art also includes a unique inventory system that allows you to create and collect an inventory of pixel art components. The built in Pixel Shop contains hundreds of free pixel art pieces for you to use, with pixel art collections from professional pixel artists, and new pieces added daily.

Ratings and Reviews



A Good app, though it desperately needs auto-save, I just lost a few hours of work because my iPad ran out of juice.

Well executed , so much fun.


Hasn't been over complicated, super easy to use, no instructions needed.
Really fast to make images and save and submit items to use again, I.e objects, characters etc.

Surprised nobody has submitted Mooninites yet, lol guess that's one for me to do.

Vey surprised there isn't more reviews for a well evicted reliable app, thought would love for oldskool 8bitness ATM this would be all over the net.

Anyways I'm hooker (>^o^)>

Good but...


What is with the horrible icon, considering its a pixel art app is it too much to ask for a pixel art icon, or even the grey one shown here is nice.

not the horrible one that downloads. Its Not the same as the one shown here.
