  5. Manga Mondays ~ Bananamantis

    USA based Bananamantis creates brilliant fantasy style pixel characters. There is a mixture of Pokémon, My Little Pony and various other franchises amongst her work, as well as loads of original characters. I’ve always found pixel art amazing. It’s fascinating to see how creative you can get within the restrictions of the pixel grid. This is an artform that was created out of necessity, as technology moved onto computer screens. Now that we have moved on from that visual language, as screens have much higher resolutions and can take in much more detailed imagery it is great to see so many people online still taking up this art form. Visit Banamantis’ Deviant Art page here for more of her excellent pixel work.
