Inspired by retro game graphics from the 1980s, such as those made famous by the iconic Atari, Spectrum and Nintendo, this complete tool kit contains everything you need to create your own pixel art. Full of useful shortcuts, this is one of my most fun and innovative packs to date. It features pixel brushes and patterns, which together allow the user to make their own 8-bit style art quickly and easily. Plus a set of one-click 8-bit type effects – handy for creating pixelated titling.
I’ve had so much fun with this pack and I’m sure you are going to too – get it now and unleash the retro artist in you!
Please note: the pack does not create what is understood technically as 8-Bit art but it’s very close in style and the next best thing!
This useful tool kit contains the following elements:
Draw multiple pixels with one stroke. I’ve also supplied some shaders and purpose built decorative pixel brushes, perfect for creating unique textures and backgrounds. Being vector brushes means you can re-pose them after drawing, so you don’t need to get it right first time.
Flood areas with pixel texture quickly and easily and speed up your workflow. Because the patterns are seamless, you can fill any size area. Recolor as required. Supplied in 15 varieties.
One-click Type Effects:
Turn type & vector shapes into authentic looking 8-bit type in an instant! The graphic styles combine seamless textures, gradients, brushes and effects, so they can be applied in seconds. The styles can be adjusted and re-colored after application. I’ve also included a background pattern for each graphic style.
The mix tape design and arcade type have been supplied for you to backwards engineer. Please note: these are for personal use only.
