The main feature of the program is extendability by plugins written in JavaScript, so everyone (who knows a little bit JS) can add almost any feature to the program!

Hello everybody,

I want to give back some of the knowledge I have gathered the last few years raoming PJ with all its brilliant art. It covers my take on doing a small piece of pixel art (64x45) from concept, over creating a palette, to pixelling. It is not much, but it may be of help to one or two pixel lovers out there.
