Tattooine

I was just looking at some of my older blog posts – I know I haven’t been updating, for some reason neither blogspot nor wordpress loads from home (we are really contemplating changing our internet service provider since that isn’t the only problem we are having at the moment) – Anyway I came across this one about pixel illustrations of the star wars characters and it reminded this video so here you go:

As a bonus (and for an apology for being absent for a long while, here is a great illustration from Ulises Farinas, also featuring Tattooine. (click on the image for the hi-res version)

pixel Star Wars!

So, some months ago I watched all of the Star Wars movies starting with episodes IV, V, VI and then I, II and III. In a few days, because I didn’t have the time to do a marathon and frankly, my eyes are already -7 degrees. I had watched IV, V and I before but I never had time to watch the whole series, and I guess I just love how the series play out. esp III, but II was boring as hell. Anyway, because I am making a pixel game for my graduation project, I look at a lot of stuff other people do, so here are Andy Rash‘s pixel Star Wars characters! I love all of them, especially the details where he made the arm – cutting cliché ^^

eBoy

I have been following eBoy for a very long time since I really do like pixel art, and I wanted to share a few of  their works here. (And I am still very mad at myself for missing their “eCities” exhibition for the opening of the Milk Gallery in Istanbul, which I could have very easily).  For anyone who haven’t heard about them, they define themselves like this:

“EbOY is Steffen Sauerteig, Svend Smital and Kai Vermehr. We create re-usable pixel objects and take them to build complex and extensible artwork. And we make toys.”

(I recommend to click on the images since they won’t look as “wow” as they are when they’re this tiny)
