I'm getting a little addicted to pixel art. I've got another couple of pieces in the pipeline, which will hopefully be finished soon. The first is fairly small, but can't be finished until I receive a certain bead colour (damn my inadequate planning!); the second is a much larger project involving a design I put together myself, and some custom wording. It's a present, and I'm really hoping it goes well. My plan is to start and complete it this weekend. Updates to follow.
Until then, I thought I'd share some great pixel art sites I've found online. The first is a site by a fellow pixel fan, which collects art pieces from all over the Internet. Check out his site: http://8bitdecals.com/ and follow him on Twitter (@8bitdecals).
The next one focuses on stickers. Check it out here: http://www.stickaz.com/en/ This is a shop, so you can buy pixel art, such as this fellow here:
And the last one I've stumbled upon today is an artist named Jude Buffum (http://judebuffum.wordpress.com/shop/). His work is pretty impressive and involves a lot of pixelised versions of famous movie scenes, one of my favourite being this one:
His Twitter is @thejudeabides.
I LOVE PIXEL ART!
My name is Iain and my addiction is making pixel bead art. My main inspirations are comics, video games and movies.
