Over a year ago, a pixel artist by the name of junkboy whipped up a whole bunch of demakes of popular game properties, turning Killzone into Contra, Brütal Legend into a LucasArts point-and-click, and more. I don't know how many of you are aware, but junkboy is actually Markus Toivonen, Mojang's art director. I guess he's been so busy helping Notch take over the world that he hasn't had much time for personal projects as of late.

Over on his deviantART page, Markus has just uploaded a pair of pixel masterpieces -- a mockup of some gothic beat-em-up and the Halo demake teased above. These have actually been available on his Tumblr since the summer, but hopefully this will give his work a little extra exposure.

I flat-out love pixel art (who doesn't?), so the more eyeballs on this stuff, the better.

Even more characters in that classic Bubble Bobble style

Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below. Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly! Who's yours? 100 Taito style sprites part 3 [Paul Robertson]more

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
