    Pixel Art Series

    Ha, can't pull one over on you magicsofa. Check this out, a few days ago I sent a message to John Romero, and he retweeted my link to his head on a stick. https://twitter.com/theromero# Just look how happy his profile image is about it! I can't think of a better way to end the series.

    Gez - Glad you caught it. I figured if you've seen the head, you've used the code! Seeker - It worked out pretty well in the end, with both games having the same number of enemies. Phobus - Thanks! It's actually based on the recoil frame. If you squint you might be able to see his open mouth and slight head tilt. I'll put together a full lineup soon. In the meantime, here's something new from the weekend. Don't worry, I won't turn this into just a random pop culture thread, it's just hard not to share somethings! Oh, this is my current desktop image, and might just be a future series... -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    magicsofa - How'd you do? Seeker - Did you know this one? I was wondering if everyone would know about this. Mithran - Thanks, Keen worked out better than I thought he would. I should do a little swinging animation with him... Creaphis - New favourite time starts now! Unless you're into the cute characters more than bloody heads on sticks. Here it is the last of the second series, and possibly the best easter egg character ever! DOOM II "John Romero's Head on a Stick" eleven of a series of eleven If you used the clipping code to walk through the Final Boss, you would find that Romero's head is what you're actually shooting to win the game. Pure genius. Thanks for following along guys, and I really appreciate all the positive comments. -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    I actually played all of the Commander Keen games as a kid. It was a pretty solid platformer, as I remember. How bizzarre was it to see a room full of these 'hanging' in DOOM for the first time? DOOM II "Commander Keen" ten of a series of eleven This was another easter egg with reference to Apogee/id’s early sidescroller. They’re not so subtly telling us that they’ve switch design directions. Tomorrow is the last of the DOOM II series, and it's a good one! -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    Only three to go now, and they're all the easter egg enemies. DOOM II "Wolfenstein SS" nine of a series of eleven They only had front facing sprites for firing, so if they started shooting at each other it would still look like they were shooting at you. I remember being pretty excited to stumble on the Wolf3D level. The enemies all felt so small, because the walls were so much larger. -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    Mithran - Whoa, someone knows their Fallout! If it's not my next series, it'll be soon after. The largest of the enemies, and a pretty big wall too! DOOM II "Final Boss" eight of a series of eleven FINAL BOSS He's wall sized, spawns enemies all around you, and has a rocket sized hole in his head. A hole with a secret inside... A secret that's coming up. -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    New week of DOOM II postings! Friday being the eleventh of eleven in the series. The demon who holds a the power of a BFG in his own hands... DOOM II "Arch-Vile" seven of a series of eleven ARCH-VILE "Not only does he summon the fire elementals to watch you go up in flames, he revives already dead demons while he's at it." (manual) Oh hey, I also posted some upcoming series teasers over the weekend. (Apologies for the non-DOOM related images, but I just wanted to share with you guys.) -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    bruce - Thanks! seeker - Always appreciate your positive feedback seeker. Ragnor - High Five alright. Glad you found the thread, and it's awesome to see my little project on people's home desktops. I'll have a new one up on Monday. There are only two more before we get to the "secret" characters.

    Mithran - Thanks, it's nice to work with a bit of freedom. Mancubus looks really happy to see someone. Someone who's head will fit nicely on a stick! Birdbrain - Oh thanks, now that's all I can see! Haha. He'd be doing a little side to side dance too. Gez - Hilarious. The grain does make him look sort of furry. DOOM II "Arachnotron" six of a series of eleven I seem to recall an arena style level where the walls in the center came down, and four of these guys were hiding in there. I used to wonder how long they were in there for. Did they know you were coming, or did they just wake while you shot rockets at them? You can't really blame them for shooting back. -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    I went a little looser with the design on the Revenant. He's more top heavy with those rocket launchers than in the game. Do you think he's close enough to be recognizable? DOOM II "Revenant" five of a series of eleven REVENANT “These huge skeletons are just cruel. They punch and kick the life out of you, and also enjoy launching flaming rockets into your torso.” (manual) -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    Now we're getting to some of the fun ones! DOOM II "Mancubus" four of a series of eleven MANCUBUS "He is fat, ugly, and likes shooting enormous fireballs into you from his arms." (manual) -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    Mithran - I'm glad you like the effect. It's totally what I was going for! Bank - Oh, I've seen those before! All the designs are hilarious, but your arachnotron is amazing. Sir Thunder - Thanks man, the little spiders are coming up soon too. Kwad - Awesome. I'm always happy to meet someone who played SCURGE. I designed & animated the lead character and the little blue pillow looking guys, among other things. It was a great project, and an incredibly hard game. The old palette shift character... DOOM II "Hell Knight" three of a series of eleven HELL KNIGHT "Slightly easier to kill than our friend the Baron, but appear in larger numbers."

    Mithran - He totally went the team fortress way didn't he? Both big bald red guys with giant machine guns! I wanted to stylise him a bit more than the other human characters. Vader - The id post was pretty awesome. I can't deny it. DeathevokatioN - Ha, I got a kick out your comment next to your name. magicsofa - Made my day, but you might replace that with the last one from this next series... StoneFrog - Cool, I'm glad you noticed it. It's 3D! This is one of my favorites. DOOM II "Pain Elemental" two of a series of eleven PAIN ELEMENTAL "Watch out for these guys, they fly around and fire Lost Souls at you. If you don't kill them quick enough, the Lost Souls will eat you for lunch." (manual) -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    Hey guys, check this out. Destructoid http://www.destructoid.com/doom-goes-adorable-with-miniaturized-sprites-197257.phtml, GameSetWatch http://www.gamesetwatch.com/2011/03/doom_monsters_turned_into_tiny.php, and a few other blogs picked up on my first series. That's all pretty cool, but then I found out that id tweeted about it last night! http://twitter.com/#!/idSoftware Blew my brain. id software's the nintendo of my youth. Mithran - I wanted to keep the tech in there, and the barrels aren't supposed to be cute, they're apocalyptic! Magicsofa / Marnetmar - Thanks, I really wasn't sure how these would be taken. Archvile78 - Wait until you see the last one... Diverse - Awesome. I wear my influences on my sleeve. Here starts the second series. DOOM II "Former Commando" one of a series of eleven HEAVY WEAPON DUDE “These guys are probably the first new enemy you will encounter in DOOM II. They are more disgusting looking that sergeants, and are also more deadly due to their chain gun.” (manual) -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com

    So ends the DOOM I series. Next up DOOM II baby. Seeker - Oh yeah! Including the 'special' characters. Phobus - Thanks, it's a bit easier when they're larger. Here he is, the big boy. DOOM I "Cyberdemon" eleven of a series of eleven CYBERDEMON "When you get to the end of the second episode of DOOM, you'll know." (manual) He's pretty stylized like the Baron. I like using blocks over having 'stepped' pixel edges. -- As always, you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well. 8x8pixels.tumblr.com
