With the project in full swing, the most important thing I personally wanted to focus on was finding a pixel artist that could bring the concept I had in mind to life. I posted on various boards such as Way of the Pixel, Pixel Joint and even Deviant Art – mentioning that we were looking to commission a paid piece of work for a 2D RPG prototype. The response was incredible and if anything quite overwhelming.
Throughout that process there was one artist’s work which was just incredible and shone above everything else we had seen. After some negotiating on timelines etc. I am very excited to announce that Sohei Pixel will be working with us to produce pixel art for Project: Kariko
Here are just a few of Sohei’s Examples.
