How to draw 8 Bit-Characters

I wonder how some people make characters like metaknight look so perfect and its drawn so small. For example like the Stickman v.s. Nintendo fight! With the advance wars tanks and the bullet bill and the super mario 8 bit character. (by the way how do people make perfect bold circles)

The way I'd do it would be by enlarging a pixel character X2, then taking a picture of it with the Dsi camera. Then trace that picture, and use the Shrink/Enlarge button to get it right. That's what I'm doing, actually, for the Minis March Again flipnote I'm making (Except mini marios are more complex then pixel characters).

It would be great if I had an original signature. Instead I just have a Friend code
