Atomica by Carnivius Atomica by Carnivius
- Will need to click full view or Download if the piece has been shrunken a bit and distorted by DA's default size -

Commission work done at end of 2010 for [link] for his album Atomica and requested a 16 bit style video game album cover and inlay art.

This shows the cover in the top left corner, the ingame shot in the top right (with hexagon border to make CD case square sized), the track listing on the bottom left (which was the order at time of commission, it may have changed since then), and he asked for a logo of Volt 9000 abbreviated to V9K done in the same font style as the Atomica logo for his website which is in the bottom right along with my 'tag'.

I used a 16 color palette for all pieces of this commission project. Just for practising color efficiency rather than any official rule. There is a 17th color but that is merely the transparent color used to seperate the 4 images.

Cover image can be viewed on it's own at [link]

Atomica by *Carnivius is not only wonderful pixel art in it's own right, but is also a brilliant CD cover design showing that pixels can be practical as well as aesthetically pleasing. ( Featured by ClefairyKid )

Heh. Thanks.  Was just about coming up with a flexible 16 colour palette suitable for what this piece required.

It definitely has a look I really like to it. I might direct my artist towards this to use this color scheme for one of our tile sets.
It has a very unique look to it that could work for our "titanium" tileset/material in our game.

Incredible! Title Screen, Screenshot of the action, Sound Test and all of it has this shine to it. Looks better than Sega Genesis! I love it!
