    i really like the stork one, the colours, the idea, the lot. The deer image is pleasing but dont the angled legs break the pixel theme?

    Thanks everyone!
    Kendall: It most definitely does. I'm not really a pixel art purist by any means, so I deliberately wanted to curve the legs to add a bit more gesture and expression to the animals.

    Thanks Neurobalistic! It's acrylic ink, a really wonderful and versatile medium.

    If anyone is interested, I'm making prints of these available through my etsy store!

    Here is another lil' pixel/ block guy! The tortoise and the scorpion!

    Here are two more from the series.

    The majestic Peacock and pretty much the raddest animal in existence: The octopus!

    THESE ARE AWESOME, I really like the Turtle, Octopus, and Honey bees... the bees are so cute! Not to mention they are all handled very well.

    Nice work on this project of yours! I love the depth you managed to get in the octopus image, and the tiger is a close second. The stripe motif on the 'blocks' is perfect. What is the last animal in this menagerie I wonder??

    These are beautiful. I especially appreciate your last entry.
    The contrast of sharp angles to the smoothness of nature is inviting.
