JavaScript-mancy Pixel Art: How To Make Pixel Art Like In JavaScript-mancy

A young wizard practices the fine wizardring arts with mixed success throwing fireballs at her master.
Would you like to learn to do pixel art? This video shows how you can make pixel art like in the JavaScript-mancy series.

The past few weeks I’ve been doing lots of pixel art. With the launch of JavaScript-mancy: OOP - Mastering the Arcane Art of Summoning Objects in JavaScript I decided to re-design the cover to make it more special and appealing.

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?

The New Covers

These are the new covers. What do you think?

How To Do Pixel Art Like In JavaScript-Mancy

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!
