Here’s an idea I’ve had in my head for the past couple of weeks. Based on the episode of Community, where the cast is forced to battle in an 8-bit world for Pierces’ inheritance, and the wicked cool CBS Saturday morning ‘toon, Dungeons and Dragons.
After a few quick sketches, and some internet reference, I quickly built the file in Illustrator CS6 using a scanned sketch, a grid and the live paint bucket tool. A very easy way to create/emulate good old 8-bit video game art.
The type is reminiscent of the 80’s D&D materials, it’s not the same font. But it’s such a close approximation, only a true geek would notice. And I don’t want to spend 12 hours re-imagining that type face for a parody piece.
Let me know what you think.
