Marker Art #24 & 25: Little Nemo and Earthbound

Wanting to speed up the pixel art process, I invested in some graph paper the other day and had to try it out immediately after it arrived. Finally – no more measuring and grid drawing!

As a quick test, I pulled up a sprite for Nemo from Little Nemo: The Dream Master (NES, 1990) and was able to put him together while waiting for my supper to finish cooking. I had to attempt something more ambitious! A flash of the Lost Underworld from Earthbound (SNES, 1994) entered my mind, and I knew I had the perfect project idea. Below are the results from both sessions.

“Wake up, Nemo. How many times do I have to call you?”

My template.
I actually messed up these outlines at first and had to start over with a fresh sheet!
I wanted to include Ness and the crew, so I found a separate template and added them on the side.
This background took some time, but the whole project turned out great!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my art! Did you play Little Nemo: The Dream Master or Earthbound? Tell me about it in a reply below. Also, be sure to FOLLOW or subscribe to my blog via e-mail to have posts delivered directly to your inbox!
