I had not tried producing pixel art or animating in a long time and this project has re-ignited a love of both for me. The game is ticking along in the background and we have both decided to put more time into it this year and make some significant progress, I may post the odd bit of related work on the blog.
Recently the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh opened the Game Masters exhibition, a retrospective on some of the most influential video games and their creators. Its an excellent exhibit and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys games. Inspired by this I produced a couple of pixel art pieces, one of the museum itself and one of Dolly the sheep (one of the most popular exhibits at the museum).
