The Ask: 

Create sci-fi pixel art assets for Chronicles of the Oblivion, an upcoming indie video game and chiptune music video. 

Game Designer 
The Approach:

For the assets I aimed to invoke a nostalgic and other worldly feel. The game was based on an assorted crew traveling throughout the galaxy searching for lost worlds. 

With this in mind, I left negative space in many environmental scenes to create a sense of vastness and provide the player/viewer with enough visual stimulation to ignite their curiosity. 

The Results

Completing the design in time for their initial project reveal, the art was enthusiastically received well by the developer and viewers.

Featured below are a few of the fun avatar icons I was asked to create.
