A piece I made for Pac-Man's 40th anniversary!

Inspiration for the design came from the Atari 400/800 box art.

I love those strange covers because I'm never quite sure if they're blessed or cursed.

You'll find a timelapse on my twitter here:

Yep I had already noticed that but forgot to change it! Thank you for reminding me, I made things a bit smoother! :D

Regarding the box art, here it is:

I guess it is well known for the olden days gamers and retrogamers of all ages. Those weird US covers were a kind of tradition. The Megaman/Rockman series had some too (and for the "new" classic ones Capcom made for Wii, xbox 360 and playstation 3, they honoured the tradition as well).

I never knew if the artists knew nothing about the games or just chose to be very creative for fun or something.

Anyways, I think the result is kinda endearing even if back in the days, the kids must have been dubitative when seeing them in the store shelves, lol.

Good sprite overall, thought I think some of the outer AA on his head makes some parts less smooth and circular ironically. Interesting inspiration, too; I don't know how well-known that box art is.
