Once upon a time, creating pixel art was a completely manual process. You drew your base shape, and then if you wanted to add highlights, shadows, or blur, you had to draw them in, pixel by pixel.
Piq is a Flash-based pixel art editor that lets you enjoy fine-grained manual control, while making it a bit easier to add those extra touches to your image. You first draw the image pixel by pixel. Then, once you have the base shape, you can use one of several tools to painlessly manipulate the colors.
In the screenshot above, I drew the letters “DLS” (hey, I never said I could do pixel art!), and then I used the “burn” tool to create some highlights. It may not be a very good example of what this tool is capable of, but that's just because I can't draw. As their gallery shows, piq can be used to create some very detailed and beautiful pixel art, such as this beautiful apple.
Once you're done drawing, you can upload your image to the piq gallery with a single click. You can also save the image to your hard drive as a BMP and then easily convert it to a site favicon.Piq is a fun way to create pixel-art and favicons
