  1. I created the 3D meshes, and animations, and textured them with just a little detail mostly just basic colors.
  2. I converted 3D meshes to PixelArt style using this tool for Blender created by ShaunGreiner:
  3. Set the character to be in the pose of each Keyframe, and run the tool to give me an output image.
  4. I bring the output of that tool into GIMP and arranged each image into a SpriteSheet.
  5. Then in GIMP I do Colors-> Map -> PaletteMap ,  and select my Palette.
