About the 50/50 Rule

May I use that time to do some stuff related with learning pixel art or pixel animation?

My guess is that I should also consider the time spent in that as study and not as free drawing, but I'm not quite sure as I find it really fun and tend to draw a bunch of stuff for fun when working with that eventhough I'm actually practicing new techniques.

I think having fun is the main issue here. So, of course, you can draw pixel art, if you like it. From what I see in your post, it doesn't look like some strict photo study. Exploring is actually a good thing too.Just ask yourself: do I want to improve by drawing it, or is it just to play and experiment?

I hope it will help.

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
