I’m not gonna lie – I absolutely love pixel art, but I can’t quite put my finger on why. Does it really matter though? I just think it’s fucking cool.
Lucky for me, it seems that a lot of other people do too because I’ve been seeing more and more awesome pixel artists pop up online lately. One of the best though has to be the Swedish artist known as Junkboy (aka Jnkboy). Aside from being an all around phenomenal illustrator, Junkboy is also known for his “demakes” series where he draws modern games as if they were made back in the 90’s.
I’ve put together a gallery below of all the demakes I could find. My favorites are Bayonetta as a top-down shooter, Resident Evil 5 as a twin-stick shooter, and Uncharted 3 as a side-scroller. Which ones do you guys like and which ones do you wish they would make into an actual? Leave a comment and let us know.
