How to make 2d art for mobile

In these major 2d html5 games, especially the ones designed for mobile, the sprites are crisp and clear and colourful . Firstly, do they use pixel or vector art? in these games. When I see pixel art it always looks rough and it only looks good in retro games. Secondly, what tools should I use to make clear, crisp and colourful sprites? Thanks.

Technically it's all pixel art as there's no concept of vectors in html5 games really. But I think you just mean aesthetically how do they create the graphics, in which case it depends on the artist! Some like working in Photoshop, some in Illustrator, others in Flash. It doesn't really matter how they produce the art, the end result will be a reflection of their skill and nothing more really.

You may also have to customize your scaling for it to maintain the 'pixely' style you would want.  These types of games seem to become blurry due to anti-aliasing when the canvas adjusts to different screen sizes, negating the entire point of the art style.
