I love to do pixel painting. I normally just do small paintings, but for my husband's last birthday, I wanted to do something epic. I had a 36x48 inches canvas that I was keeping for something special, so I decided to do a painting with a lot of pixels to go in our staircase.

I thought about the Castlevania game series cause my husband loves these games and the color scheme fits our wall. I searched for something big but without too many different colors and I found a pixel art made by Puzza on PixelJoint (http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/33021.htm). Perfect!

It's 144 by 192 pixels (each pixel is 1\4 inch). It took me a lot of afternoons of secret work, while my husband was at work. Fortunately I was on maternity leave, waiting for baby to get here Smiley


Here is one with my dog for scale. It's a big dog Tongue


I used my "messy pixels" technique, which means that I don't try to do perfectly square pixels, but I use the unevenness to make the image look more stylish.


Here is some close-ups.

This is amazing! I think I might have to borrow your idea. I'd never thought of pixel art. This Rocks.

Thanks everyone! Yes, my husband was very happy! He knew I was working on it, but he thought I was doing a project with 1/2 inch pixels instead of 1/4 inch (4 times more pixels). He was very impressed by the result! The good thing about this type of pixel painting is that you don't see small mistakes Tongue
