Battle ready!

My brother said, those pictures made him look like a troll, and me look like a wizard, so I went with it… And he wanted to dual-weild shields, cause that's cool!

Little bro

I enjoyed painting yesterday, so I did another portrait in that style. This one's a memory sketch of my little bro. I think it turned out too much like an ad for Doritos, lol.

16 Bit Lotsa Doodles

Did some doodles throughout the day, figured I'd condense it all into one post.
Bit's Principal
Who happens to be NESter's dad.
Deciding how many different styles of Pixel forms Bit will have

Edit: missed one.

Sunday, July 14, 2013


Still trying to figure out a style for my show. I figured learning how to make real pixel art would help me out when I try to 3-dimensionalize the pixels... it also happens to be tons of fun.

16-Bit - Show Designs 006

One of my awesome friends has taken an interest in 16-Bit, and asked if she could model Bit. I quickly drew up a rotation for her to build from in maya. Should be getting some exciting stuff soon!

Druid - Game Designs 004

Edit: I didn't feel this was worth a whole new post. Just another sketch to add into the pile. I think I've definitely decided on his antler crown looking this way.

More rough designs... There really isn't a gator in the game, but it's good for working out the design style.

16-bit Show Design 04

This was mostly for the fun. I did a little run, seeing if I could make it snappy, had to add a couple smears, and figured I'd try out a type of pixel trail (which I think kinda failed). anyways, woo first GIF.

16-Bit - Show Design 03

A similar mockup for Princess Pixel. Just wanted to see how she'd look more finished.
