The light was glinting into the living room at an odd angle one day and I noticed the reflections of points of light on the television screen were all…fancy. But in an orderly fashion. Is the reflection polarized?
Anyway, here’s a pixel art representation of what it looked like. I think this would look cool in a comic as a special effect; a spell, or a flash from a sword in motion.
This is my entry to the 2013 Egg Decorating activity over on The Quilting Bee. It’s a chocolate egg, with the purple and gold foil being peeled back. Pixelling foil is surprisingly easy, you just need splotches of similar shades jaggedly put together.
The Quilting Bee is running another garden based activity this spring, and this is my entry, a calla lily. Mum would grow these in the garden when I was growing up, and I always thought they were so elegant and beautiful…
Last summer she gave me a potted marigold to put on my windowsill, and it bloomed all autumn and then died away. I never bothered to move the pot with the dead marigold all winter, and in the spring I was surprised to see a little calla seedling popping it’s head up! It smuggled aboard in the marigold pot!
Hopefully, I can take good care of it, and one day grow some beautiful calla lilies of my own.
Here is a happy jumping girl made out of pixels.
There have been a lot of really great pixel art events taking place over at the qbee lately. This was an entry for the star jar competition, which won second place for the best pixeling category.
Just completed the next phase of akarra.com. Upgraded the layout, and added quite a bit of new content. The admin commands section in particular should be useful to people.
Quite proud of how the pixelly castle on the menu turned out.
A teacup for the qbee. Pixel art takes ages, but it’s fun.
Update: Hurrah! I won an award in the Best Pixeled catagory!
Just a bit of pixel art for the qbee. I was too slow to enter the Valentines activity, but I’m on time for the spring activity. It’s inspired by the kind of flowers that cacti tend to have, but not based on any specific plant.
Finally, I’ve gotten into the elusive qbee. The first time I tried to enter was several years ago now, but I was unsuccessful, despite spending hours and hours painstakingly making not-very-good pixel art. Ah well, I’ve finally cracked it, hurrah!
