My love for video games and art is one and the same. My main goal is to cram these two passion into one flaming ball of glory! What I really mean is that my ultimate goal is to be making art that is used in video games. Pixel art is a great way to blend my two loves. Great art that comes out looking like some of the Nintendo and Super Nintendo games of yesterday that fill my heart with gaming goodness.
Using minimal colors while doing pixel art is key, usually trying to keep your file size as small as possible. I've included my color pallet here so you can see the colors I've used, 11 total.

My cousin got married about a week ago and I had to do a special gift for the wedding. This particular cousin is responsible for getting me into a lot of things in the sci fi world including Star Wars. It is well known within my family that I love Star Wars but ask any of my relatives and my cousin Brian would definitley be voted the Star Wars aficionado of the family.
Here is my homage to Star Wars and my cousin Brian who found his lovely princess in Lisa! My new cousin : )

I really like doing these and will be doing more and more from now on.
