So, the other day I joined Tumblr. I know - Facebook, Twitter and Instagram clearly weren't fulfilling my social media needs. As it's basically just a blog site, I was just going to use it to post pics of my creations, and pimp out this site, as well as my profiles on Etsy, Facebook etc. However, it wasn't long before I realised Tumblr has an even better use - it's a total goldmine for pixel art. I spent hours last night just browsing through it all in amazement, and saving pics that I'd like to bead at some point. I like to give credit where it's due, so here are a few of my favourite artists, and samples of their work. (Links to profiles in titles).
Brenton Powell Design
His pixel art seems very basic, but he captures the essence of each character so well.
The clue is in the title with this one - pixel art of movie posters. I like that he also chooses movies you wouldn't normally associate with this kind of art.
Mike V Design
My Mickey Mouse sprite was a MikeV design - he mainly seems to do Disney, which these days includes Marvel and Star Wars.
Varied pixel art style and subjects, including animated GIF's. Well worth checking out!
Just look at this Hot Fuzz/Final Fight mashup. Isn't it beautiful? This guy is amazing!
He has a great variety of pixel art pictures and animations. I of course prefer his Nintendo stuff!
My name is Iain and my addiction is making pixel bead art. My main inspirations are comics, video games and movies.
