    Aseprite seems to be the editor of choice for animated pixel art though.

    Honestly, Aseprite is the pixel art editor of choice, whether you are doing animations or not. If anyone wants to get into the medium, as a hobby, professionally, or just to learn, then I cannot recommend Aseprite enough.

    And while Aseprite is not open-source, it is source available and can be installed on many Linux distributions. (Though I highly recommend buying it if you like it.)

    That being said, pixel art can also be created with just about any art application. I used Krita and Paint.net for the longest time.
