np. 

Do you have any tutorials or tips about making pixel icon art? I just recently got into editing pre-existing sprites (mostly from pokemon) to look like someone almost completely different, but I'd like to do my own originals.

I don't have any major pixel art tutorials yet, but maybe I'll make one soon (it's a great idea!).

This will sound really cliché, but practice really does make perfect. It's helpful to look at others' pixel works for inspiration, however I'd try to avoid editing pre-existing sprites because it will make you more dependent on someone else's style rather than building your own. I think that the outline of a pixel is the most important and definitely the most difficult. Usually I will use the pencil tool to make a rough sketch of the shape I want and clean it up afterwards. This makes it much easier and less stressful, plus it's easier to see faults in the design and fix them. 

You shouldn't be afraid too step out of your box when doing pixel art; there's no "right" or "wrong", and if you are satisfied with your final project then you can be assured that others will like it too! So just practice, practice, practice. I would start small, like you're doing with sprites, and then go larger. Color can make a big difference too; sometimes your line-art and details are fine, it's just that the color is a little off. Also, when you're working at such a small scale, you can afford to combine really strange colors because the eye will see them mix in a different way (if you get what I'm saying).

I hope this is helpful/answers your question! If you still have more questions feel free to reply here or note me. I'll try to make a tutorial soon :)

Well thanks for the advice, and especially thanks for the fave. 

It's funny, but I did less work on the fennekin one, and more on the Sprite Icon 4 Me one, and in fact I'm more proud of the second one, but everyone fave's the fennekin one.

One last question though. What would be the pixel size you find easiest to make art in? I'm leaning twoard the 50 by 50 size the fennekin one is, but maybe bigger would be easier?

Anytime!

It could be just a style preference of those who saw each pixel :) 
Of course do the type that you like the most, and not just what others enjoy! 

Yea, I think 50x50 is actually quite a decent size to work in. Larger pixels are *ALWAYS* harder, and much too small pixels can also be tough because you have to use your colors very precisely. I would suggest starting off with 50x50 and experimenting later =P
