8bit Art For The Real World
Back in the early days of computers, graphics were simplistic. Groups of blocks, also known as pixels, were combined to create boxy graphics. Curved lines were just a gleam in a programmer’s eye…
While computer graphics have evolved, the style of art that came out of those early days has remained. The 8bit art movement is alive and well. And easy for kids to understand and emulate. The essence of 8bit art relies on taking small elements and combining them to create a larger picture, like a mosaic.
