Sticky Bun Day is February 21st!
For this weeks gif, I was feeling nostalgic and was inspired by the look of old video/ computer games. I researched tutorials on and experimented with the pixel art style, which turned out to be a bit trickier than expected! I made an initial ugly cinnamon bun, and learned that pixel art works best with limited colors and smaller pixels.
The process overall was very interesting. I spent most of my time actually drawing the image out, and added just a bit of simple animation in after effects. The pixel art was created in Illustrator with a 175x 175 square grid and the live paint tool to fill in every single tiny square. Fun really! But it took me from 3pm-12:30am overall which I didn’t plan on.
