Beginning Pixel Art
Because pixel art is made up of tiny little squares, drawing lines on certain angles looks better than others.
Notice that the pixel placement is very uniform, it goes up in steps of one or two pixels, which is why it looks nice and clean. It's not always possible to stick to these "perfect" lines when pixelling, but whenever you can, do so.
To get a nice, gradual curve, we have to gradually decrease or increase the length of the lines we use The circle to the left starts at 3, then goes down to 2 pixels, then 1. This keeps the curve gradual.
