It’s a pity to spend a year of spare time writing a book and then only spend 30 minutes on a cover that no one finds appealing. So I went ahead and re-designed the cover for all the books in the series.
I thought it’d be interesting to record what I’ve learned and share it with you in case you’re interested in doing your own pixel art.
So, ready to learn some pixel art?
These are the new covers. What do you think?
I recorded this video in one single run because I wanted to make it as real as possible. So no 35 retakes to make it look seamless and like I can make perfect pixel art in 3 minutes. Hope that you like it!
Take care and have a great weekend!
