Do you see that on the sidebar ads of almost every websites? o well, after a minute you will know how to make yourself into a 8-bit cartoon. I mentioned that how to draw with Excel in my earlier blog post. (Please go check out that post as well!! http://lydiaxnc.blogspot.com/2011/09/draw-with-excel-2nd.html)Excel doesn't seem like a perfect tool when it comes to make high resolution pictures, because you need to color your pictures one pixel by one pixel when it comes to details. However it is perfect for this!!!
This is a example! In case you can't tell, that is me eating Pringles potato chips. It isn't as good, but you can do it better by making the "pixels" smaller!
Besides graphic design, let's bring 8-bit to life. By basically putting your graphic design on a shirt. Or design more.?
in Real Life
Also, let's check what was on the fashion show!
Again, Excel is an awesome tool to do those design!!
At last, let me teach you how to make a 8-bit costumes. IT'S ALMOST HALLOWEEN! Yay!
Draw the graphic graph of yourself!! Then let's start working.
You need foam cubes, card board, glue, spray paint, scissors.
First, you make general shape of your body with the card board.
Second, separate your foam cubes into different color groups according to the different part of costume, and spray the color on!!
Third, glue colored foam cubes on to the costumes.
You are good to go trick 'r treat, now. Haha.
