Super Bros Pixel Art: 8-Bits or 16-Bits of Awesome?

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 12, 2011

I’ve got to admit that I have a weakness for any design that contains big pixels. There’s a sort of retro allure that’s involved with the creation of these kinds of designs.

These particular pixelated cartoons are the creation of Ty Lettau.


To date, he’s created 696 characters from cartoons, movies, and video games, all rendered in that pixelated feel. Highlights include Star Wars, Alien, Final Fantasy, all sorts of superheroes and more.
