Hey guys. Just sharing two new pixel art series I've started. They're inspired by DOOM and DOOM II characters / enemies.
My style is to reduce the pixels as much as possible while still capturing the character.

DOOM I "Space Marine" one of a series of eleven

There'll be a new one here every day for a few weeks.

Oh, and you can follow the updates on my tumblr as well.

Nicely done.

You've certainly succeeded in your goal of maintaining recognizability.

Looks very nice. My favorite part is the numbers. I just really like how they look for some reason.

Creaphis - Ha, I was hoping no one would notice.
magicsofa - Mind the fireballs.

Here's the Sergeant with his shotgun, and some armor helmets.

DOOM I "Former Sergent" four of a series of eleven

I like adding the small props. They feel sort of like toy sets that way.

Demon with some shotgun shells nearby.

DOOM I "Demon" five of a series of eleven

I should really do an animation of him chomping.

Giant floating mouth up now.

Seeker - Thanks, I appreciate it.

Super Mario transport tube thingies?

No, I actually recognize it as the security armor.

I'm still waiting for the Baron of Hell.

Mithran - Two points!
Vaporizer - Thanks, got a bunch more to go.

DOOM I "Lost Souls" seven of a series of eleven

These ones actually worked out better than I thought they would at such a small pixel count.

DOOM I "Spectre" eight of a series of eleven

I remember turning a corner, hearing the snorts and then just seeing blood.

Also his accessories here follow the theme. Everyone here should get it.

purist - Blur Spheres, awesome. Thanks for the compliment.

DOOM I "Baron of Hell" nine of a series of eleven

BARONS OF HELL “Tough as a dump truck and nearly as big, these goliaths are the worst thing on two legs since Tyrannosaurus Rex. Watch out for the green plasma they fling at you.” (manual)

I suppose those candle sticks could be smaller in comparison, but I liked the level of detail on them.

The candles look fine, but Mr. Baron's arms look a bit big. These all still look great, though.

Duck - Yeah I've taken some liberty with the designs. I thought he'd be cool as a big tough guy with little satyr legs.
Mithran - Thanks! Here's another big one.

DOOM I "Spider Demon" ten of a series of eleven

SPIDER MASTERMIND It will make you wish you never were playing DOOM in the first place." (manual)

Those health pack will probably come in handy here.

I've noticed you've been making the monsters from Doom\Ultimate Doom. Were you planning on making any of the Doom II monsters?

That SpiderDemon looks fantastic, even relative to the other rather impressive works in this thread. Great job.

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.

Pretty intense cyberdemon. I like that you included the wire on the right arm - and those flaming barrels are adorable. :D

These are fucking sweet.

Yet, for some reason, they remind of character sprites/voxels from Command & Conquer as well as Red Alert and Cannon Fodder from back in the day.
