From 8-bit art to game development: How this hobby turned into a potential career!
Recently, I’ve been exploring the world of 8-bit art and I must say, it’s been an incredibly refreshing and relaxing experience. There’s something special about the simplicity of 8-bit graphics that just makes creating art feel like a fun and playful adventure.
I’ve always been a fan of classic video games from the 80s and 90s, and 8-bit art is just an extension of that. I love the way that 8-bit graphics force you to be creative with limited colors and pixels. It’s almost like working within a set of constraints that make the process more challenging, but also more rewarding when you finally see your creation come to life.
As I’ve been practicing and experimenting with different techniques, I’ve also been thinking about how I could incorporate my 8-bit art into other projects. One idea that’s been bouncing around my head is creating a game in Unity Engine. I’ve dabbled with game development in the past, but the idea of bringing my own 8-bit art to life in a game is an exciting prospect.
Of course, game development is no easy feat, and I know it would be a lot of hard work to make a game that’s worth playing. But I’m not thinking about that right now. For now, I’m just enjoying the process of creating art and exploring the world of 8-bit graphics.
I find that doing something creative and outside of my usual routine is a great way to de-stress and have fun. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but taking a step back and doing something for pure enjoyment can be incredibly therapeutic.
Overall, my foray into 8-bit art has been a delightful journey so far. I’m excited to see where this new interest takes me, and I hope that I can continue to create and experiment with this medium for a long time to come.
