Spanish artist Octavi Navarro’s Pixel Art series of illustrations remind us a lot of scenes from classic gaming. Limited by his medium, he was forced to put extra thought into each narrative. The pixelated creations depict cross-sections of buildings as well as scenes for nature, wartime, and even space. Study each one carefully, as he’s done a very nice job of adding a touch of humor to each piece.
With the painstaking amount of work that goes into pieces such as these (each contains thousands of pixels), Octavi had plenty of time to thoroughly plan every little bit of interaction among the subjects he portrays.
Though it may not have the advanced finish of today’s computer imaging, it shows that with the proper talent an artist can evoke emotion and tell an interesting story no matter the limitations of his medium.
