Inspired by retro game graphics from the 1980s and 1990s, such as those made famous by the iconic Atari, Spectrum, Sega and Nintendo consoles, 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, 16-bit and 32-bit inspired art quickly and easily. A set of one-click 8-bit type effects – handy for creating pixelated titling.

This useful tool kit contains the following elements:
- A trusty, go-to pixel outline brush – Draw multiple pixels with one stroke and save time! Versions with varied spacing have also been supplied.

- Decorative Pixel Brushes – Designed for creating varied pixel textures and stunning backgrounds.All brushes are Adobe Illustrator vector brushes.
A Pixel Pattern Library:
Save time by flooding areas with pixel texture quickly and easily with the Illustrator patterns. This means you don’t need to waste time drawing backgrounds and large areas and it makes creating detailed scenes a doddle. Because the patterns are seamless, you can fill any size area. Recoloring is quick and easy too. Supplied in 45 varieties including rocks, tiles, bricks, clouds, earth, wood and more.
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. All Adobe Illustrator brushes and patterns are live so, it’s easy to see what settings were used. Please note: these are for personal use only.

IMPORTANT! Pixel Perfect creates 8-bit inspired art which is designed to emulate pixel art. It does not produce the technical definition of 8-bit art. The brushes, patterns and styles are subject to the same restrictions as other pixel-based brushes and are subject to anti-aliasing at very small sizes, if exported in bitmap formats.
This product is compatible with Illustrator CS6 and CC only (including the latest version).
