I Am 8-Bit Show....Thursday, Aug.14.

The fourth annual "I Am 8-Bit" show is coming up next thursday. With over a hundred artists partipating this year and a new bigger location, there's going to tons of great video game art to be seen.

Here's my meager submission this year. Nothing over exciting. It's kind of mish mash of Fleisher, a weird japanese add I saw last week, and a little bit of golden books.


1) Quick digital rough on the cintiq.

2) Digital Color Key 01. Tried out some funky japanese-y colors. It came out very cool but in the end, I tossed it. Mostly because I might not have been able to match it with the cel vinyl colors I have.

3) Color Key 02....this one was definitely do-able in cel vinyl, plus it had a nice simplified retro feel. Kind of like an old wartime poster.

4)Final Piece....measure 11 X 14. Not sure if I'm 100% happy with how it came out. In retrospect, I should have kept the yellow skin. Da well...what's done is done.

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek, and thanks for dropping by!

Yeah! Nice to see you rockin the cel vinyl. This came out great! If you want to get with the bright colors in the future, there are always the radiant cel vinyl paints. Downside is that they don't scan or photo too well.

So, for these you color keyed them in Photoshop and then painted them?

You do that for all your work, Steve? I haven't been looking on your blog that long.
