This jam's a good excuse to mess around in Aseprite :)

It's been a while since I did some pixelart and this was good practice. I limited myself to one of the built in color palettes (Game Boy Color Type 1) which is why I had to get a little creative with the dithering. I'm especially happy with the color turnout on the electric guitar, the coloring of the bedsheets was truly a stick up my ass though haha. So this is my bedroom and not my workspace but whatever. It's a little sad there's only ever 2 walls you can show in these drawings. There's another wall I would have loved to show off in this image haha. That door is just a closet by the way.

Thanks bro, stay safe yourself! <3

Everyone locked up in the Netherlands too? Well, we're still worryingly up and about over here but compared to the NG majority. All those in participation here...

It's a nice piece of an authentic looking room. Intriguing decor. Curious about the tribal mask and flowers? The blanket definitely comes across more realistic than most, and so much detail in a lot of the stuff, fascinated by all the cables in particular. Feels like the color scheme gives it somewhat of an old tone, but that's part of the charm too. Text style: spot on arcade-like. May not be the most visually appealing in all tones and forms, but definitely one of the more interesting and intricate. And nostalgic! When you grew up with these types of games. Interesting how just the colors feel so familiar, or if maybe it's also in part some of the shapes, pixels and isometric view...

Trying to catch a glimpse of what kind of building you see outside the window too, some kind of restaurant or theatre...?


Whirlguy responds:

I suppose I have a little way to go as a pixel artist. If you're seeing flowers, restaurants and theaters that's telling me I need to convey my pixels a little better. That's okay though, I'll get it right next time! The tribal mask you refer to is an item from the Legend of Zelda games which I made a replica of and it's now hanging up from my wall. The flowers you mentioned are probably the string of autumn leaves that I hung up on an unoccupied guitar hanger above my bed and the restaurant or theater isn't anything of the sort. I was thinking if I parked a car in front of the house the bricked streets wouldn't look like a building's wall anymore. Guess I was wrong about that hahaha. Next time I'll make sure to ask people what they see before I upload it. Just to make sure if they see what I intended them to see.

Yeah, we've locked down to prevent shit from getting out of hand. At least up until April 6th and then we'll reevaluate the situation. We're just trying to learn from Italy's mistakes. Thanks for the wonderful review my man :)
