Ah, what we are witnessing here is the work of a true ARTISTE! Inspired by the myriad manifestations of beauty in the cosmos and radiating it back as a collage of pixel art worlds (game or not), transformed by your creative touch. I am in awe! Smashtastic.


user

This is astoundingly good. Please let me know if you're ever working on the art for a game - I'll be buying it. :P


user

 Oh... That's much more than completely amazing. This is mindblowing.

Grats on first


user
vierbit (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/18/2014 06:59

@Altourus
Yes, the maps were for the most part build out of tiles with some objects/sprites placed afterwards.
Either because they were animated, destroyable or had some other special function.


user
Altourus (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/13/2014 11:08

Question, was this done with a combination of a tile set and a set of sprites? I ask in regard to things like the lantern in the village or the torch held by a skeleton in the graveyard. Seems like it would be a lot of duplicated images to place those pieces over different backgrounds


user
Altourus (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/13/2014 10:42

After further analysis of this, I've come to a conclusion, your a god damn wizard. 


user
Altourus (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/12/2014 22:17

I am sooooooooo jealous of your skil


user
vierbit (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/3/2014 16:45

@Faceless
No, they are not in chronological order. But the village scene was in 2010 and the dungeon on the top left was 2013.

@Dr D
I agree that especially the older ones have some contrast issues. But in game this wasn't really a problem.
The game was also running in 320x240, so these mockups show a much larger area then what you would actually see in game.

@Elk
Yeah, now that you mention it. But it's just coincidence.

@TheInquisitor
For some designs I did some sketches beforehand, like the scenes with the shifting perspective. Or some details on the buildings. But most of the time I already have a clear picture in mind before starting drawing.


user
TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/2/2014 01:37

Do you sketch these designs out - say like the village buildings, before leaping into the pixels or do you just wing it?


user

CARA ALHO MEL!

Thanks for compiling and showing these.

Absolutely fantastic. You really are one of the pixel masters. I'm going to study this next time I do some RPG stuff.

Love the Desert-Town :) somehow I connect it with Friedensreich Hundertwasser ^^


user
Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/17/2014 08:39

Despite how much I love these, I do have a few criticisms about them:

Objectively speaking, I think for the purpose of being game art, most of these are too busy, there is too much contrast/details/overall business and I feel like the characters would get visually lost in some of these environments. It's mainly on the buildings and collidable objects. Also there are these really bright colored lights in a lot of scenes which really detract attention from the eye.

One little nitpick on second village scene - I would get rid of the small gray roof shingles. Makes it look a bit too much like the ground imo, which uses the same kind of pattern.

Again I love these, this is some of my favorite pixel art ever.. but wonder how well it really works as game art.

I loved the beach, loved the snow floors loved loved the colors, loved everything! 

What did I liked most was the snowy landscape. 
Surely one of the best pixel art I've ever seen  

user
Faceless (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 2/16/2014 18:45

I'm curious as to the dates of each of these.

Are they in chronological order?

Oh, and of course, awesome stuff. I particularly like the snow scene.


user
vierbit (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/16/2014 16:14

@yumbie
You're probably confusing me with someone else. I know Abysswolf's work, but never interacted with him.
I also don't have a deviantart account.


user
yumbie (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/16/2014 15:07

amazing.. i remember you're abyssalwolf's friend on deviant. pro
