    Here are some really good Pixel Art tutorials written by a guy I know named Despain. They're for rpg perspectives, but you can take the basic idea of them and apply to your kag texture packs.

    You should also read them in order, they helped me, maybe they can help you too (:
    Hope you enjoy them! If you have any questions, you should post them as a comment on Despain's site.

    He's also still writing them, so stay tuned for more articles!

    I made an orb and learned how to make outlines.
    Tried the shading my self so I would get the hang of it instead of trying to remake his.

    Not that bad for first time shading I guess... *proudface*
    But for some reason my color choice STILL SUCKS.(he gave a palete)
    <3 tutorials.
    Orb created using method 2, failed a bit. :(
    [​IMG]
    Orb created using method 3, because my orb was too small it looked a bit weird and uncomplete.
    [​IMG]
    Orb created using method 4, pretty normal I suppose?

    Orb created using his custom method.
    [​IMG](hope you guys don't mind me editing this to post my progress on his tutorial.)
