A keyboard-centric approach to pixel art
PyPixelArt - A keyboard-centric pixel editor
The idea behind PyPixelArt is uniting:
- a cmdpxl inspired pixel image editor applied to pixel art.
- vim 's keyboard-centric approach to improve productivity. Pretty hard to do with an image editor, but it'll be fun to try xD
- Some very useful functionalities from aseprite and other pixel art editors, such as screen symmetry.
