NEW “Star Wars” stickers now available in the PixelBlock Etsy Store !

Ever wanted to have something from a galaxy far, far away, but found that nothing seems to be flat / sticky / pixelated enough for your well defined tastes ?

Well have I got just the thing for you !

The “Star Wars” 10 character pack contains all of the favourites from the Original Trilogy, reduced to fashionably low resolution sprites perfect for everything from books to laptops and even for the console of your YT-1300 - now only $7+ on the PixelBlock Store !

And if that wasn’t enough good news, I thought I’d also do something a little special….

! IT’S STICKER GIVEAWAY TIME !

I think it’s best to keep this short to save everyone’s dashboards, so here are the basics  :

- Six “Star Wars” 10-Character sticker packs are up for grabs.

- Reblogging and Likes of this post each count as single entries to the giveaway - do both and double your chances !

- Following does NOT count as an entry, but might be a good idea if you want to catch the announcement of the winners when it ends.

- The drawing is open to everybody, everywhere ! As long as you can accept mail envelopes, you are good to go.

- The Giveaway ends on Saturday 26th April at 6:00 PM EST, so don’t be late !

- Winners will be chosen via Random Number Generator, and contacted via Private Message with further details - So make sure to allow messages to your blog !

- Don’t like Star Wars ? Winners can substitute the prize for any other sticker packs from the PixelBlock Store, as long as you don’t exceed the value of the originally offered “Star Wars” set.

So that is all there is to it. Get cracking !

I thought I’d take the opportunity to show off one of the projects I kept myself busy with whilst I was incommunicado - a rather large pixelated “Summer” landscape for a small website background.
I found it pretty challenging, especially since it deals with something much larger than a 40 x 40 canvas. It’s not something I do very often, but when I do - I think it turns out pretty decent.
(This landscape has been posted here with the permission of the client and has been watermarked, so please don’t go stealing it. It’ll be very naughty, and Gryffindor will lose at least 20 house points.)

Well hello there !
Terribly sorry - let me just dust off the cobwebs here.
It’s been a little while since I actually posted anything up here, so I just wanted to let everyone know (who is still watching at least) that I’m getting over my lack of sleep and am actually going to be posting up some brand new stuff for the blog !
And get this- I’ll actually have some of those way overdue requests ready for your dashboards over the next few days alongside some fancy mouse cursors, brand new shop items and even a few animations ! How crazy is that ?
Seriously though, sorry I left without saying anything. I think it’s about time we got this show back on the road, don’t you ?

I don’t really have any proper suprises planned for today, but there are quite a few impressive “pranks” out on the internet already from the likes of Google, League of Legends and Samsung that are well worth a look - which you can find in a handy dandy link right here.

Hope you are enjoying your day, and remember - always be vigilant !

Just in case you didn’t know - April Fools !

Taking a small cue from the fantastic work of mattfrith, I thought I’d turn my hand to a few cars whilst I had a minute or two spare.

No idea what they’ll be for, but I’m sure I’ll think of something …

Practicing my shading technique by doing a few Rupees, although I can’t quite decide which one works best. 

What one would you pick ? Darker or Lighter ?

For the European crowd - opinions are still welcome !

The Master Sword, weapon of choice for green-clothed do-gooders and mystical magical letter opener from the “Legend Of Zelda” series, now turned into a little pixel doodle.

Thought I’d try a bit of a different style for once. You could even say that it is quite edgy.

Lord Darth Vader, fearsomely wheezy face of the Galactic Empire and main antagonist of the original "Star Wars" trilogy, now given not one but two little pixel versions of himself.

I personally quite like the look of that “bronzed” version, but nothing quite beats the classics …

Admiral Ackbar, fishy fleet commander of the Rebel Alliance and popular fellow from the Star Wars universe, now given a much improved pixel do over.

It’s a wee bit late, but a rather tasteful curator here on Tumblr named  thepixelatednerd had his birthday yesterday - so I thought I’d do a little doodle to celebrate.

Happy (belated) Birthday !

Chewbacca, the ever eloquent partner-in-crime of Han Solo and huggable wookiee / killer teddy bear of the Star Wars universe, now given a much improved little pixelated do-over.

I’d hate to be his hairdresser …
