What is Pixel Art?

What is pixel art?

Pixel Art is the artistic design created digitally based on pixels, using simple image editing tools. As it is true that it is not a simple technique, since the color palette and their use are very important to create what is intended correctly.

Video game design is one of the most complete branches of the digital entertainment sector, both for the (almost infinite) possibilities it offers and for the styles that can be used.

One of them is 3D Pixel Art, such as Minecraft Pixel Art, a unique and peculiar style, which we explain in detail below and, in addition, we tell you how to learn to master it.

Some video games today are so realistic that it seems like you are dealing with real people, that the impossible scenarios are real representations, the immersion is surprising! Imagine what it was like to play the video games of your childhood in the 90s and 2000s. What memories... but this way you will see it more clearly.

But if you know the sector well, you will know that there are very different styles of games. We have realistic games present in almost all action and sports genres, cell shading adapted to new technologies, the trend of polygonal games and geometric shapes and, also, video games based on Pixel Art and Pixel Art 3D .

Digital art is in all of them and, for a reason of development, they all have pixels. In essence, they all represent pixel-based digital art.

However, Pixel Art does not refer to all existing games, but to a very specific style of design, based on classic development art. It is a rasterization, pixel by pixel, which, through small colored mosaics, allows the creation of all the elements of a video game.

The 80s and 90s were the ones that gave the greatest boost to Pixel Art, so much so that today the retro trend has recovered it in an amazing way.

In fact, Pixel Art has re-emerged stronger than ever, paradoxically rivaling the realism prevailing in the video game sector, with proposals that combine nostalgia, friendliness, color and eye-catching based on clearly identifiable pixels
