Fanart for the upcoming @supergiantgames game, “Transistor.” I’m excited for a lot of things, but none quite as much as this game.
Been using an awesome new program made by a couple of my buds and let me tell you, it is AWESOME! #hexels @hexraystudios

It bums me out that tumblr doesn’t have a sent folder. It’s like half of every conversation you have with someone is forever missing. Maybe I should look at it like it’s a puzzle, every talk is a mystery!
That’s a good question. To answer you as best as I can, I typically start with an idea, doodle it on paper, and then see how few pixels I can use to represent that idea whilst maintaining a style that’s aesthetically pleasing to me. Using photoshop’s wonderful pencil tool, I’ll start with blacks, and line out my idea. Then I go in and apply flat colours to the leftover negative space. After that I sometimes go in and change the remaining line-art to a different colour and then add shadows and highlights to make it pop. Once that’s finished I take a knee, slam a 40 of Mickeys, and pretend I’m the king of Phobos.
One of my favorite artists, Derek Yu of Spelunky fame, had the best tutorial ever, but I’m having a hard time fetching it. It appears to have been lost when he recently updated his site over at: http://www.derekyu.com/
Hopefully this helped or at the very least was slightly entertaining.
What time is it? (Last time, I swear!)
I can’t be the first one to do this, but was having an art block and this came out of it. :P
Saw this little puppy pop up on a friends Tumblr: http://weheartit.com/entry/47283790/via/vivaa4eva
So I made the pixel fan art of him above.
Our prototype character’s Space/Water suite. Need to work on the paneling a little bit more, but so far I’m pleased with it.
