40 Beautiful 8-Bit Artworks




8 Bit Art can refer to a style of synthesized electronic music called “chiptunes”, as well as a form of digital art called “pixel art”. Both chiptunes and Pixel Art can be more than 8-bits. Chiptunes, also referred to as “chip music”, are often made using sound hardware from old video game consoles or computer systems. Gameboys have become popular for live chip performers as they are very portable and can be played with ease on stage.

The Pixel Art Style is more than often associated with 1980s – early 1990s video game art. On of the most memorable video game that showcases great use of these digital graphics is Super Mario Brothers. I’m sure you might recall the classic that stole much productivity during it’s reign.

Low resolution 8-bit art has recently started to come back on the radar when a site called Eightbit.me came out. This site allows you to create a full-body 8-bit avatar in your own image, from hair color, glasses and facial hair down to the outfit you’re wearing. Many tech junkie have started to associate their 8-bit self with their email address by using Gravatar.com.

    I’m not a big fan of “8-bit artworks” but I think some of them are intersting because of the balance between realistic paint/photo and 8-bit art. Other because they succeed in reinventing this type of art.

    Like : Street 8-bit Art, The 8-bit Tie, The 8-bit Simpsons, The Next 150.

    I *am* a big fan of 8-bit art. I’m curious about how one goes about generating it. Any sources for that?

    I love these, especially the textured ones they almost look like a sewn cross stitch piece.
