The large distinction with different pixelart and Kobi’s is the way in which he renders gentle with a easy pixel. That is what provides every of his works an unbelievable aid. That is why he normally works on a big scale with a number of thousand pixels. Engaged on the Cryptodudes was a giant problem as a result of he needed to maintain the “Kobi’s contact” on an image of solely 576×576 pixels and to consider every trait so the shadows and lights match completely on every of the 2222 dudes.
