Once again grabbing my Ohuhu markers and a couple of 4×4″ pieces of canvas, I decided this time to sketch out some pixel art of characters from two of my favorite games, Dragon Warrior (Originally Dragon Quest, NES, 1987) and StarTropics (NES, 1990). For the latter, I chose to use the sprite from the series’ sequel, Zoda’s Revenge: StarTropics II (NES, 1994).
Despite being made severals years apart in separate countries, both games shared a similar look when it came to navigating their overworlds. Because of this aesthetic, I was able to easily fit these 8-bit sprites onto a 20×20 square grid with a little room left for the background. The results are below!
Dragon Warrior (NES, 1986)
Zoda’s Revenge: StarTropics II (NES, 1994)
