Hi pixel thread, I've been busy!

I never thought to do a 2-step size reduction. That seems to interpolate a lot better than doing it in one shot.

Can we post other poeple’s art for comment? I’ve commissioned a few pieces in a couple of styles as concept art for a game I have rolling around in my head, and I wouldn’t mind getting opinions on them.

Please do, it's interesting to see different artists' take on the same subject matter.

Haven't posted in here in a bit but a few months ago I got to do some work for a pixel art zine, which is finally ready to be sold to folk. We were past 200% funded the last time I checked so I'm pretty sure everyone who orders will get a copy. All the profits are going to Ablegamers too. US and Canada only though, Fedex were being dicks about shipping :\

Anyway here's my contribution. I finally saved up enough for a cintiq



And in the meantime I've been working on this gun thing

Congrats on getting to take part in that zine. Your game sprite makes me want to dig up a copy of Halloween Harry.


I finished a matte background for Temporus.

Sorry, I didn't read your post.

I'm not an artist, but I'd investigate cyborg crimes in that world.

That is exceptionally cool. I especially like the way it glows.

If I had to nitpick something I'd say the dots where the rain hits the ground look kinda stuttery, is there just 2 frames for the rain? The falling rain looks fine, but the dots on the ground kinda stand out to me.

The spot light, the neon, the smoke, everything looks great otherwise.

its three frames for the rain, it's a good critique because generally i think three frames are enough for rain but this is so detailed it probably needs more


the genre of pixel art i work in is basically "fictional lucasarts adventure game backgrounds" which tbh isn't something i see elsewhere very often

There's a lot to like here. I'd suggest halving your canvas size, and try working within a constrained palette. Both will free up mental resources and time that you can put into form and composition.

There's a guy on twitter I follow, Matt Frith, who draws a lot of adventure game backgrounds. His work is something I look up to.

Once shot a man in Reno.

Something i'm working on during my free time. I'm trying to do something reminiscent of lucasarts adventure games.

Yep. It's a little roguelike I work on with friends. Our musician chose the title because it's both thematic to some of the gameplay goals as well as some of the music styles.

Sounds (heh) good. BTW the “a” looks too much like a “d”.
