8 Bit Art – Contra (Making of)

It’s been a while, but I think this Contra mural is worth the wait.  Instead of the usual slide show, I wanted to try my hand at movie making.  It’s not the best, but at least I could control the transition times.  More pictures to come.

8 Bit Art – Sunbeam

It’s been a while since my last post.  I spent the past week testing out a new base – which unfortunately didn’t work out. Because I ran out of wall space I had to remove “Duck Hunt” – which was really a shame.  Once I put the old base back up, I filled it up quickly with this somewhat abstract design – which turned out a lot cooler than I expected.

8 Bit Art – Lakitu

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’ve been on a tear the past few days…

For those who don’t know, Lakitu is the S.O.B in the cloud from the later stages of Super Mario Brothers that would throw spiked turtles on youKind of a heel, he appeared at seemingly the worst times.   It was always  sweet when you could kill him with star power.  Anyway, he was a formidable adversary so I decided to pay homage.  I put another picture of my goofy mug in there to give an idea of scale.

I got the sprite image from here.

Kirby from “Kirby’s Adventure”  This was a reader suggestion.

I found the 8 bit sprite here.

Kirby Time Lapse

Like the Zelda Old Man, I wanted to show the process of changing from one mosaic (Desert) to a new one.  In this case  the new mosaic is Kirby from the original NES game.  I’ll post some better pictures tomorrow (when the lighting is better)

Desert

Unfortunately, I had to borrow pieces from Samus in order to finish Duck Hunt on my double-wide base.  I’m expecting some company this weekend and I didn’t want to leave a half done mosaic on one of my walls.  I threw this together and it turned out pretty good.

Quacktastic!

After painting 3 batches of blue pixels, I finished my favorite mosaic yet. The pictures don’t really do justice to the size of this thing.
