HOW TO MAKE PIXEL ART FROM A SKETCHI don’t know if this is useful to anyone but I did a cool thing and you can too
im by no means an expert at pixel art but hey someone might wanna try this cause it worked out ok for me I guess

Sketch out your character. The above example is a little more complex than a sketch but this one was done pretty quickly. Resize it to the size you want your pixel art to be
Change the mode to Indexed ColorFiddle with the settings until it looks more pixelated. I use Local (Selective) and around 10-20 some colors, though you should adjust the number until it looks good enough for you. There are some other settings that might make a neat effect, try it out.
Convert it back to RBG color so you can edit it again and begin refining. It still requires a lot of work if you want that crisp look, but this gives you an excellent starting point. From here on out start using the pencil tool for refining. Remember to set your eraser to Pencil mode and turn off anti aliasing if you use selection tools. Some part, especially inking/lineart will have fuzzy edges that you’ll need to clean up. If you picked too many colors when you converted it to Indexed Color, you can use the magic wand too to select some of those colors and just paint over them with the nearest color.before refinement:after refinement:
