Sketch #10 tharlevfx

I’ve been playing a few pixel art games recently and wanted to have a play with something in a different style so here we go:

Loosely based on the following ref:

Just a few hours in photoshop using the timeline tool but I’m reasonably happy with the result!


Nice dude, I like the grittiness of it.

This is nice :slight_smile: I want to see more!

Thanks guys! Sadly (well not really) I’m off for a quick holiday in New York before GDC so not more time for pixel fires.

It was fun though so I might try and keep it up and do any future challenges in pixel form, good to stretch the muscles and do something different.

Nice one, also refs are very cool, especially those in the lower left and right. tasty!


Here’s a link to the psd if anyone is interested: Dropbox - PixelFire - Simplify your life

Used a mix of hand painted layers, animated Screen and Multiply layers and some animated gradients, then gradient mapped the black and white image into colour.

Refs are Celeste, Kingdom: New Lands, a random photo from Google images, Shovel Knight and Dead Cells.
