Pixel Art: Magneto

Pixel Art: Magneto

Late last night, I finished and submitted my first 'standalone' piece of pixel-art (not counting a the cars and environments in Traffic Surfer).

Magneto pixel art

It's by far the single most complicated piece of pixel art that I've ever created, and while it has some flaws, I'm super-proud of it.

I created it for the NexGenSprites' Challenge Cup #8, whose guidelines were to recreate 90s TV cartoon character in a 90x90 image.

Here are a couple of in-progress shots as it came together:
