"Hello and welcome back to my blog!

This time something a little different – I commissioned a guest post about designing a tile-set from a studio who specialise in pixel-art. After searching long and hard to find exactly the right style I was after I settled on a company from Poland called Blackmoon design. Check out their site, its pretty cool looking.

For the generation that grew up on NES and SNES there's something endearing about the video game graphics of days since past. And with the rise of indie game development in recent years, 8-bit pixel art saw a resurgence in popularity. Call it the nostalgia factor, but I think it serves as a reminder that we don't need to use bleeding edge technology as long as games are fun and engage our imagination.

I tend to make pixel art primarily because it's easier for me to animate and draw sprites pixel by pixel than it is to try and draw them out with a tablet consistently. I have to say making pixel art is one of those things you gradually get better at and so I've come up with helpful hint for anyone looking to make 8-bit pixel art.

When you sleep, you are dreaming. Some dreams are beautiful and vivid, the others are strange, and the rest of them are horrible... We've having them all the night, and then wake up and forget them. But what if one day your "awakening" would be a difficult task? Could you find a way out of the dreams and wake up?
