Quiet Crossing


For the 2020 Music inspired Art Contest.

Here's my attempt at creating something as chill as this song. Also I thought there'd be no better way to compliment a chiptune than with pixel art.

Oh hey you did the art for Tooth Toss!

Karlestonchew responds:

Yes! Along with the amazingly talented Sevi and Yeramia. Check them out too!

So peaceful... i love it!


I'm trying not to be biased, but I adore -everything- about this piece.

The music is relaxing, the palette is nice, bright, light and pastel, and the scene you've created goes perfectly with the music you've chosen. The animation loops so nicely, too! If I were browsing around on Youtube looking for something to put on while I worked, I'd definitely pick this.

From a technical standpoint, I really love the cool blue tones vs warm yellows you used in your shadows as the train passes by, and your use of perspective. Everything harmonizes really nicely.

Excellent entry. Keep up the great work!

Karlestonchew responds:

Wow, thank you so much for the kind words and evaluation! This made my week! I knew you'd be judging the art but didn't expect a personalized message. I've been a fan of your art for quite some time now so this really means a lot. Thank you!
