This tutorial is written for PSP 8 but can easily done in PSP 7 or any other paintprogram.

- File with catbase - CLICK HERE
- File with colorpalette - CLICK HERE (Right mousebutton and Save as..)

Step 1

Open the file with the catbase and promote your underground layer to layer and remove the white/rose surrounding the cat and my text ©

Magnify to 400%, so you can see each square = 1 pixel.
We're going to fill in our cat, as you can see in the pictures below. You may open the colorpalette that I used, but of course you may also use the colors you want. It's your cat! Make a new layer for each color so you can easily make changes later.

Step 2

Fill with color 1 the grey schadows and with color 2 the lightbrown/yellow lines.

Step 3
Now fill in the different colors. Make a new layer for each color. See my example, you may follow it, but wouldn't it be nice to make your own?  I used the colors 3, 2 and 4.

When you are satified, change the color of the grey outerline in the a slight darker color then that is 'under' the line (see left picture below). I used colors 5 and 6 and draw with black (3) and brown (7) the muzzlehairs and paw nails.

Step 4
Merge all visible layers and here you go, your Pixel Cat is finished!
