16 Bit Dreams

 

I did the Your Dreams Out the Window assignment. I wanted to do something fantastical with pyramids in a jungle on the coast. It came out looking more like a 16bit video game landscape. You got polygons, jaggies and animation sprites. You can almost hear the Mario World music. I’d like to vacation here.

I drew the image in Gimp. I used to lasso tool to make the pyramids. I painted the waterfall river and used airbrush to make the mist. The horizon and the mountain are repeating rectangles. The hardest part was removing the original view from the window frame. I used Pixlr to do that because my Gimp opens in Japanese and I couldn’t figure it out.

I got the frame here and the wall here.

  1. Hi,
    Great title, reminds me of the idea that when B&W was all that was on TV folk dreamt in B&W. I remember getting my first mac and my dreams were full of GUI for a while. I guess gamers dream games.

  2. That’s so neat, did you draw it using a mouse/trackpad or do you have a tablet of some sort? I always think it’s so hard to draw on a computer.
