Discarded Pixels in Blue

Bridget_BG_WIP_Aug18

I haven’t given up drawing with a pen (quite the opposite), but I thought I’d post some pixel art game concept work that I don’t think is quite right (yet). The idea was to try making some pixel art backgrounds look more “hand-drawn”. I don’t think it’s the right approach for the game I’m working on with the other Pixelgrams team, but it is something I will pursue on a personal project if I get the opportunity. This tile set was made using Pyxel Edit, which to date is the best tile editor I’ve used. I’m sure there are others out there, but that’s the one I use.

For pixel character animations I have started using Aseprite:

Cheep Watch

I’ve finally updated my ‘Blackbird’ watch-face so it should run on all the Pebbles, including the new ones due out this month. Here’s the description:

A simple watchface with an elegant and business-like blackbird on it. Use this watch face if you want to feel elegant and/or business-like. Also displays the date for those who find knowing the date important.

So there you go. It’s free to download and enjoy, obviously. You can get it from Pebble here:

Cheep cheep!
