Testing Testing 1 2 3

Ever since I saw the Wreck It Ralph trailer, my mind has been bent on their 8-bit rendering. I think it is pretty beautiful. I did some 8-bit tests on some old pieces.

Ah! 8-bit awesomeness! Is this some combination of Photoshop Filter/pixelate/ mosaic?

Well, I am still messing around with it. After studying Wreck It Ralph a little more, I need to make the vertical pixels a little more subtle. But it is a combination of scaling the original art with nearest neighbor scaling. Then I blur the image slightly and offset the blue and red channels. Then... I add a bloom.

Interesting, thanks! They all look pretty close to the Wreck it Ralph trailer. I think offsetting the blue and red channels gives it a really interesting old school arcade look.
