I needed a break from drawing, so last night I made pixel art.
My main problem with pushing pixels—has been finding a style I like. Something chunky, (ie fewer pixels,) that's expressive, colorful, and humorous.
I wasn't sure I could do it because I hadn't seen it done... until last night!
I came across Twitter user @ryohtarot ... who had a few expressive 32x32 px artworks posted. (And then I was inspired.)
I went on a pixel art spree. People, aliens, dogs, cats... a funny chicken, space stuff, and so on.
I feel like I've bridged a gap between my drawing style and pixel art style. I had a good creative flow going last night too.
My tools? A computer, mouse, and Photoshop... though there are free options that work perfectly (and some mobile apps as well.)
You should try it. Have you ever made pixel art?
