When I was surfing on Twitter today, I stumbled across this 'tweet' shared by our good friend James White who was reminiscing the early days of 'design internet' and how everything used to be about the pixels and the little details. We became so standardized in our principles that we tend to forget what the 'internet' used to be. Inspired by this moment of nostalgia, I decided to feature the work of Pixel Jeff, a pixel art who has been making magic for more than 10 years.
Gerardo Quiroz is a pixel artist, that's pretty much it as he describes himself on his Behance profile, however that it’s pretty much it is quite amazing. Plus what’s also amazing is that the tools used for these projects below were created Photoshop CS5 extended. I don’t even know which version is that anymore which reinforces my theory that tools are just tools and the important thing is to have the ideas and the skills to translate them into pixel art. That is what Gerard did magnificently well. Take a look.
As a huge movie rat, I can't help to really enjoy this Pixel Art feature for Gustavo Viselner, a game & pixel artist based in Tel Aviv, Israel. His work? Recreating movie and television scenes made of Pixel art. He is on a mission saying that Pixel art is no longer a graphic tool for games and as I quote: "...a form of art". I totally dig that! Try to guess which movies are shown in this collection I have put together, as I decided to leave out the caption titles for you to find out by yourself. A hint?
We are featuring the work from Gustavo Viselner who is an illustrator based in Tel Aviv, Israel. He is also a talented Pixel Artist with a brilliant idea to introduce this beautiful form of an accidental art from the 80s to today's favourite TV Shows. Imagine reliving some of the best TV moments from the two decades in a Pixel form, enhance that 8-bit to the masses. You will recognize memorable TV shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and a lot more. Please enjoy!
Gustavo Viselner, an illustrator and video-game artist from Tel Aviv, Israel shared a super stylish project on his Behance profile that he did with the amazing people from Project C. Gustavo did the illustration for a pixel art game for the Atomic Blonde movie that features Charlize Theron as the sensual and savage, Lorraine Broughton, the most elite spy in MI6, an agent who's willing to use all of her lethal skills to stay alive during an impossible mission.
Elise Dessaux shared an awesome post on her Behance profile titled Futur. It is a pixel art and motion design project for a band called Sept. Sept is a french band composed of seven members. They had this crazy scenario that they imagined for their music video for their song Futur - Elise mentions on the article. The pixel art was created by Gustavo Vieselner and Elise was responsible for bringing that to life through the magic of motion design.
Today is the day where the movie Rogue One: a Star Wars Story, it’s pretty exciting and are you gonna watch it today or this Weekend? Whatever if you’re a fan or not, it’s just incredible to see how inspirational designers will create and make as a tribute to the movie. Let’s take a look at the work of Pixel Jeff who is a Pixel Artist based in Taipei, Taiwan.
Who doesn't love Pixel Art? I feel that growing up playing video-games like Atari, NES, Genesis, SNES really influence my taste and trigger this passion for pixelated illustrations. I remember spending many afternoons playing Double Dragon or Streets of Rage with my friends. Those games were simple but boy they were a lot of fun. So every time I see someone that is good at Pixel Art I gotta feature here on ABDZ and for my surprise, it looks like we have never featured the work of Lucile Patron, aka Fulifuli.
Pixel art had an influence on everyone that played video-games in the 80s and 90s. A generation that grew up seeing beautiful games all done with this style that would become cult in the future. From graffiti artist Space-Invaders to illustrators from all over, pixel art inspiration is all around us. That's the case of Pixel Art_Marvel Characters by Hgg a young illustrator from Vila Nova de Famalicão, Portugal. This my Marvel Characters pixel art project! This is a personal project designed to improve my skills in this area.
Patience is most definitely one of the many traits e qualities of a pixel artist. Coming up with complex, intricate pieces gotta be a real challenge, but Gustavo Viselner has what it takes and the result is a fantastic set of pop culture scenes in a pixel art format. From Star Wars to Forrest Gump, he rocks some super sweet references worth seeing. These are only a handful of his artworks. For more of it, please visit his portfolio at Behance. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)
I am a fan of Pixel Art, I think it might be because of my addiction to video-games in the 80s and 90s or just because they are awesome. Octavi Navarro,a self-taught painter and children’s books illustrator from Barcelona, is one of few illustrators that keeps this style alive.
I guess that a few illustration techniques demand astonishing quantities of patience. One of these techniques is definitely pixel art, which is literally illustrating pixel by pixel! Kudos for artists like Foolstown that come up with sweet art like these. Here you can check a few of Foolstown's pieces. For more of it, please visit his portfolio at DeviantART. I hope you enjoy these as much as these! Cheers. ;)
I really enjoy those big pixel art prints featuring huge cities with all sort of things happening all around... but sometimes less is more, and these pixel art gifs are just terrific! These were done by Slovakian designer Dusan Cezek and they show what a big geek he is. From classic comics to beloved sci-fi flicks, these are just amazing! For more of his Gifs, please visit his portfolio at Behance! Cheers. ;)
I am huge fan of pixel art, I even dabbled with the form in 2004, however after my studio got robbed, I lost my backup disks including my pixel work and I've never tried it again. As of late, I've been following the work of Alex Griendling and some of his amazing pixel arts. Inspired by that I decided to give it a try though I streamlined the process a little bit just to make my life a bit easier in Illustrator. So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a nice pixel art from an existing photo, in my case, the great Mohammed Ali.
Pixel art is still one of my all time favorite styles, probably because I grew up in the 80s playing Atari. Early generation consoles had an additional influence on me as this type of illustration was pretty common. The amazing thing about pixel art is that it reduces the form to the minimum amount of detail that makes it recognizable. The illustrations of Ercan Akkaya are good examples.
Pixel art is most definitely one of the most fun art techniques you can get to see these days. I guess that it has a bit of those 8 bit glory days we love so much, and Jaebum did a fantastic job here.
A while ago - December/09 to be more precise - we featured an article showing Super Cool Pixel Art Posters by eBoy. Since I really like pixel art and those three guys, Kai Vermehr, Steffen Sauerteig and Svend Smital - Eboy's team, manage to create amazing stuff, I decided to do a new post about their work! This time around we will show you some of their animations, pixoramas, editorials, toys and other stuff. In my opinion, the word to explain pixel art is 'cheerful'.
I love Pixel Art, I have 3 posters decorating the walls in my apartment with pixel art, probably because I grew up playing those 8/16 bits video-games for consoles like NES, SNES, Master System and Genesis. One of the masters of this trade is the EbOY. EbOY is Kai Vermehr, Steffen Sauerteig and Svend Smital. We create re-usable pixel objects and take them to build complex and extensible artwork. And we make toys.
