The BIG LIST of Pixel Art tools to create sprites for your HTML5 games

This week we are giving you a list of the best Pixel Art tools to create sprites and graphical elements for your HTML5 game. Big thanks to Andre Antonio Schmitz by Cian games, our friend who already managed the big list of resources for HTML5 game devs & game assets.
This blog post is part of the series focused exclusively on the game development process
 to give lots of resources to newbies, but also good tips to expert developers.
