I decided to give this a stab after doing my Starfighter Dragoon piece. This is a Xudos battleship, based on the SE3 shipset that my brother had made. Can use some tweaks but am mostly happy with it.
This was my 3rd attempt at spaceship pixel art back when I was starting to feel comfortable doing digital art. I took a lot of inspiration from Starblade and Project Dragoon in its design, wanting something sleek and more airplane looking. Done in MS Paint and with a trackball mouse!
Decided to try my pixel-art style to something else other than ships; such as weapons! My primary weapon of choice for stuff like Space Raptors and such; a Star and Saturn N80 Pulse Blaster Rifle.
Features include ammo counter, guaranteed vacuum performance and a built in flashlight/tactical laser.
Sorry it’s not in much of a bigger resolution; my MSPaint tends to conk out when the file gets to a certain size.
This is an older piece that I redid with my newfound art skills of this year. I was very happy how this turned out, especially after bringing my imaginary childhood ship to life. I thought the “pixeling” of ships was limiting and rudimentary, but it was definitely much more pleasing to look at, over my not-so-good-anime drawings I was attempting.
This is something I’ll be trying in the future again. Let’s see if it’ll stick around.
