How to create your Rainbow Pixel Art

Step by step tutorial for creating an easy rainbow pixel art in a heart shape

Total Time: 35 minutes

Start with a sketch

Using a pencil, eraser, and ruler draw your shape, I chose a heart here, and then create a grid inside of it. That’s where the ruler comes in handy! This would be much easier if you used a dot-grid journal though 🙂mono-graph-pencil

Add color!

With your marker, apply just a touch of color into the center of one of the squares (pixels) and then paint over it with water. You can alternately use colored pencils, crayons, or anything else here. Watercolor-pixel-heart

Continue adding color

You can randomize the colors you add, as I did here, or go in a particular order and create a pattern of a kind.pixel heart

Erase those pencil lines

Once the watercolor has dried, you can go in with an eraser and remove all of those pencil guidelines we drew in the beginning. DIY rainbow pixel art
