Artist of the Week: Matthew Frith

I made a new  avatar for my various places.  Reasonably pleased with it but I should probably do something with the shirt at some point…

Matthew is a freelance pixel artist/animator who grew up with a love for point and click adventures such as the Monkey Island series, Indiana Jones and The Fate of Atlantis and King’s Quest 5 & 6 to name a few.

After being introduced by a friend to the game art community, Matt soon discovered an aptitude for pixel art and spent years refining his skills.

I personally love his style, and in most cases can entirely relate to his subject matter. Definitely an artist to keep an eye on!

Below is just a sample of his work, but you can follow him on his site for more.

More practice backgrounds in my spare time.  This time inspired by the Casbah district of Algiers.  A few people have said it reminds them of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis which makes me happy. ^_^ Follow me on Twitter if you’d like to see my general ramblings.

I decided to doodle some sort of ancient city and got carried away with it.  There is more of the scene but I haven’t finished it yet but wanted to show what I had so far… Follow me on twitter if you want to see more stuff from me.

'It doesn't make any difference what pixel, it's completely hypothetical.' RIck Deckard’s spinner from the rather excellent Blade Runner movie.   Sorry I’ve only been posting silly vehicles recently but I’m rather busy with various projects :)

A quickish drawing I did on New Years Day.  The whacky car designed by Homer in the episode ‘Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?’

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na PIXELSI guess I will call this finished…  I think it would make a decent scrolling background in a game. :) Bigger version.
