The origin of Pixel art comes from creating low resolution images with computer software. Then became a computer graphics visualization technique to support the limitation of processor and memory in computers and video games with cartridge-based data recording. Technological limitations of video game players are important factors in determining the number of colours used in Pixel art, which makes the Pixel art became a memorable and applied on many types of media today. This article gathers background information, limitations, analysing the unique characteristics, process and types of Pixel art. Including the introduction of Pixel art in Creative works to be useful to those interested in using it as a guideline for creating works of art and design.
