Pixelmash is a powerful new pixel art and sprite animation tool with some tricks up its sleeve to make quick work of many of the hardest parts of pixel art. You can either work either in a traditional pixel art workflow or you can paint or import high-resolution artwork and then non-destructively pixelate it, animate layers using transforms, and apply advanced layer effects to create stunning art in no time. Mix and match dynamically-pixelated hi-res layers with traditional hand-drawn pixel-by-pixel layers for incredible flexibility!
