Excite Bike

The Excite Bike pixel art all by its lonesome

Excite Bike was one of the first complex pixel art pieces I tried. Multiple colors, lots of edges, some floating pixels...this one was quite a bit more difficult than the earlier ones like Space Invaders and Joust. I watched Indiana Jones on a loop as I cut the wood, stained it and glued it all together. I really enjoyed Excite Bike when I was younger, the feeling of speed as you would launch off a ramp or hit a turbo pad was unlike anything else at the time. This one reads really well from a distance and I dig the action of him being in the middle of a wheelie or a jump.
