Rhys covers basic isometry, outlines, highlighting, texturing, and a lot more. Visit Rhys at http://www.rhysd.org.
Great work, Rhys!
Paxxo Labs Isometric Pixel Art Tutorial is online at Deviant Art:
Slide over to Graphic Forums and see this pixel art character tutorial that pixelgal posted in July.
OK, it's not isometric, but still, it's a good tutorial.

I could not resist posting this page that I located while search for "pixel art" on alltheweb.com.
Here is an hours and hours exercise placing dots. Isn't pixel addiction some new kind of embroidering?. What else could it be the effort of illustrating ideas, objects with little dots and limited number of colors?. Our grandmas and mothers used cotton, now we use lighting pixels on the screen. Well, wait the image to load and you will see what I'm talking about.
Oh.... Chris DiClerico is good! I really like this artwork.
Here is a cool site with some excellect pixelists displaying their works. It's well worth a visit!
I have been greatly impressed by the work of some of these artists. Breath-taking detail!

In locating still more information on Pixel Art, which I find out is technically called "Isometric Pixel Art", I have located some really good information.
Here's another from Computer Arts Magazine:
2D & Photoshop - Photoshop skills: pixel art
I am really going to figure this out. (But I cannot draw, so it will probably be ugly for a while)
Another tool that I have started to look into is the GIMP, now that's cool stuff.
This is the first stop on my imaginary train, the Pixel Art Express, where I will learn how to do pixel art.
As I roamed the web tonight, looking for examples and tutorials on creating pixel art, I ran into the REAL world's smallest website, weighing in at 16 pixels by 16 pixels.
First I said, "Cool!', then I said, "Huh??", then I said,"Cool", again.
It's a novel idea, but I don't see 16x16 in the future of my projects.
