A YouTube of a Pixelated Morrigan Aensland…

Videogame sprites, or avatars, you can pick whichever term you prefer, fascinate me. It cannot be easy to create them, or make them look like they have character or depth to them. I found a Youtube that shows the process of an artist named PainterBits2 making one of Morrigan Aensland, and it’s really art more than anything else…

And if you cannot see the video on the Tale, it is here on YouTube:


And here is a screenshot of the Morrigan Avatar in case the video vanishes…

You can also find the completed art on the artist’s DeviantArt site here.

I really like so much of this work… Her hair is lovely, her body shape isn’t over the top, which I appreciate, and Morrigan just looks… right.

That’s really the most important thing isn’t it?

    Sprite art is a lot of work, you have to think about the placement of every pixel and you often have to do multiple pictures for every frame of motion in a game. The results speak for themselves, though! This is a particularly nice piece of work. It’s so nice that when I first saw it I thought he had ripped it from one of the Darkstalker games!

    Where you’re in control,
    there on your computer screen,
    now you have flickers.

    You focus on . . . me!
    Those pixels made perfection!
    My smile is your snare.

    Marvelous malware
    captures, taking possession . . .
    and now you’re mine.

    It amazes me the detail that can be created really…
