Find out why many artists choose Pixquare as their favorite pixel art tool
Eka Setya Nugraha, Indonesian pixel artist
"Pixquare has been the greatest pixel art software I've tried on the iPad. As an Aseprite user, the UI feels so familiar and easy to get used to. In fact, it became my main drawing software right now! The gesture pad is my favorite feature so far and I just can't wait to see new features the dev has to offer in the future."
JD, Pixel artist & Game developer
"I really am impressed with Pixquare! As someone who animated very frequently, having the timeline and layering system so well organized but also dockable and off to the side is really helpful, and all the tools are very sleek and easy to find without being cluttered!"
Matt Fisher, Artist • Animator • Game Dev
"Pixquare is an amazing solution for creating pixel art on the go! It has great functionality for both beginners and long time creators. It was very easy to pick up and recreate my workflow that I use on desktop programs"

I'm all ears
Hi guys, my name is Son. I am a software developer, and I knew nothing about pixel art. A while back, I learned to draw pixel art using Aseprite to make game assets (I love playing and making games). However, I soon realized that there was no pixel art editor on the iPad that made me feel comfortable. That's a bummer since I have an iPad and an Apple pencil, and I know how good the iPad is for some sketches on the go, so I started working on Pixquare, inspired a lot by Aseprite (both the UI and its functionalities).
That being said, because I have no real experience with pixel art, I rely a lot on feedback from real artists to decide what is needed to make a great pixel art editor. Since the beta testing phase, I have gotten a lot of feedback, feature requests, and bug reports. As a result, a lot of features that Pixquare has now are from these inputs. I'm really grateful for the early users who helped me with the development of Pixquare. I will continue to add more features to improve Pixquare, and users' feedback will remain the primary source of decision-making for me. That's why I'm here, writing these lines to ask you guys to chime in and let me know what you think and be a part of Pixquare's development.
