I'm not sure if this has been done before, but I wanted to try my hand at some 8-bit art and Moon Knight was my first practice subject. What do you guys think?

Here's the start screen to the game (in actual NES dimensions and color pallette) :P

@cyberwarrior: Thanks. I had heaps of fun making these and I'm considering doing all of Moon Knight's allies & rogues... though that depends on time and commitment.

@danial79: I'm sorry if I offend you, but did you really do these? My apologies if you did. Its just strange that you went from an extreme level of detail in the start screen to 8 bit work for the sprites and just a simple Megaman reskin in the first image. Why not a consistent theme throughout? Moon Knight would translate well to 16 or even 32 bit style artwork.

lol good old 8-Bit

@redlantern23: Yeah I made them. The start screen is just a resize and palette change of the Moon Knight #1 cover. There was less skill in making that than the sprites :)

Who knows where this scene is from? :)

Ermahgerd, I think I love you right now.

Um, in a totally straight, heterosexual way, that is.

Here's the original scene if anyone is having trouble remembering it:

@danial79

It would be awesome if you could do more levels, I'd love to see the rest of Marc's career in 8-bit. Damn, really makes me wish for a GB Moon Knight game now haha

@veshark: I was actually planning to. Do you know of a scene that would make a good 8-bit game level?

#21 Posted by Danial79 (2335 posts) - - Show Bio

@jonny_anonymous: Just Photoshop. I found an NES colour palette and basically just draw them pixel by pixel.

@danial79: so cool. I might try my hand at it sometime

@danial79: Oh ok that makes sense. Well they do look awesome my friend!

#25 Edited by Danial79 (2335 posts) - - Show Bio

@veshark: Good one. I'll see what I can do :)

EDIT: Here you go!

#26 Edited by Danial79 (2335 posts) - - Show Bio

@jonny_anonymous: The hardest part is the colouring. The NES palette has REALLY limited colours. It doesn't have yellow for instance, so you have to go with orange or this gross lime green if you want to show yellow :)

This is actually really cool! And P.S a Moon Knight video game would be awesome and a real boost for the characters fandom. :)

#28 Posted by Dabee (2380 posts) - - Show Bio

This...is... awesome. You aren't actually planning to make the game, are you? Because I'd totally play that.

@dabee: Unfortunately that is beyond my skill-set. If you know any game developers though, feel free to let them know I'm available for art duties :)

Damn it! We have to find someone who would program this!!

@danial79: Those are awesome. I love the Werewolf by Night and the way MK's cape spread out like he just landed from a jump off the top of the building or the fire escape or something. Nice work! You should make a Bushman level!

@tparks: My plan was to animate the entire origin in 8-bit style... until I realised exactly how much work that actually entailed :P

Well, if there's a game in progres, this is the first step :)
