So far I've figured out this: In order to make pixel art (which would look something like this), I use Pixel Persona mode then create a square brush and then click on the Pixel Tool. Yes, I've turned on the grid and snapping, but I can't seem to draw the way I would want a pixel brush to draw. It's a bit hard for me to describe but I want the brush to move less like a painting brush and more like its snapping to the grid. This free drawing program is the best example I could find (just click New Drawing and test it out for yourself) of the way the brush moves which makes it so much easier to make pixel art. I also attached a video that might help understand what I mean. I know I could just make a square in vector mode and create pixel art square by square but that sounds tedious. If this sort of thing can't be achieved in Affinity Designer, that's all right I just want to know if its possible. Thank you.

I wanted to attach a video and explain better
