Batman, the curious caped crusader of Gotham City and purveyor of fisticuff-based justice in the long-lived "DC Comics" universe, now given a very new PixelBlock redo.

Requested Anonymously.

Gordon Freeman, renowned theoretical physicist with a PHD in “Applied Crowbar / Cranial Relativity” and silent protagonist of Valve’s "Half Life" series, now given the ol’PixelBlock super-duper update.

Why two versions? Honestly, I couldn’t decide which shoulder variant I preferred. I’m that tired.

It’s my Birthday !

Well, my birthday was yesterday … but it hasn’t been 24 hours yet, so it’s still technically my birthday ! Woo loopholes !

Hope everyone is having / had / will be having a good day - I promise I’ll get into the swing of regular posts soon. 

Lots of work to wade through and not enough naps make for one empty blog :(

Cheers !

Adam Jensen, the gruff’n’tough  Sarif Industries security officer from rather excellent open world cyberpunk thriller Deus Ex : Human Revolution, now given a certifiably improved pixel update from last time.

He may not have asked for this update, but I’m fairly sure he won’t mind.

The Drifter - mysterious wandering protagonist of the ambitious and exceptionally goshdarn pretty hack-n-slasher "Hyper Light Drifter", now given a little PixelBlock-style makeover.

Requested a long time ago by Mike.

The Kestrel, old workhorse of the Federation Spacefleet and the Rebel flagship-fighting, pirate-hunting and space spider-exploding main ship from acclaimed indie title "FTL : Faster Than Light", now given it’s own heavily derezzed 44 x 28 pixel demake.

I’ve also taken some time to work on my presentation - whaddya think ? Too fancy ?


A little while ago I was asked by a DOTA 2 Twitch livestreamer / rather nice chap named “Pingeee” to create a set of four little exclusive “Emote” icons for subscribers to his channel - and since it was finished I thought it might be a nice idea to show them off here on the blog too !
Each one is designed to fit inside a tiny 28 x 28 pixel square - and even though i had to squish down a lot of detail, I think they still turned out pretty swell in the end. Heck, I might even have to do a few more for myself …

Cheer up Marvin …

I’ve been quiet for a little while, and i thought I’d show why - I was recently tasked with designing some illustrations for a HR trade magazine article (no naming names just yet), and so I unfortunately was a “bit” sidetracked - to say the least.

Still, I thought some of you might be interested to see what became of it all - not everything made it into the final print 100% intact, but since this is my very first publication job I’m feeling pretty proud.

And yes, I even gave the IT crowd an updated little appearance too :)

Hope you all like it !

Here is a small but super eager office-working robot to brighten up your afternoon !

I originally made him up as part of a commission piece, but he was rejected in favour of another design - thought he deserved a new home on the blog instead.

pixelblock:

Apparently fonts can only be made in black or white, so the grey highlights are out of the question for the moment.

-___-

There are ways to get the same sort of shading, but I can’t decide which one works best - feel free to chip in an opinion !

Still looking for opinions !

I’ve been super super slammed recently (which is lame), but luckily my dear old sister has been working her computer magic on making that font useable.

It has to be tweaked still to make it work, but It’s almost there !
