    I definitely give props for the artwork. Unfortunately there has been MUCH more… detailed work done before. The styles stretches back to the mid or early 80’s.

    Look up SIXTEENCOLORS. They’ve collected, or had before the site took a hiatus, every piece of ansi art in the history of the style. There are some AMAZING pieces.

    Cheers to the creator these. I especially liked the Office Space pieces.

    Great stuff. The Saved by the Bell one is great – Without much room to work with, he really nailed the clothes/style.

    The T-pain sprite is great too. I would like to leverage that one for my 8 bit mosaic project (http://8bitliving.com)
