I had played with pixel art as a teenager, posting my little sprites on my Geocities homepage. But when Jasson asked me to do the art for Crea, I really had no idea what I was doing. I’m used to painting large illustrations in Photoshop, so at first I really disliked the restrictions and teeny-tiny size of pixel art.
It’s been almost one year since our Kickstarter, and during that time my eye for pixel art has improved. I put a lot more time and effort into every artwork now. Here are some examples.
I created the left llama banner for our Kickstarter. What a mess. There are stray pixels and blurriness everywhere. On the right is a llamacorn tapestry I drew just the other day, and is probably my favorite thing I’ve made for Crea so far.
On the left is a shameful, shameful drawing of a bed. On the right, a more interesting and confident bed.
And here are two oak trees.
If you thought Crea looked good during our Kickstarter, just wait until it’s finished!
