Dreamful Tripod

chipped paint silhouette,
tripod of Eastern sunset
in a dreamful trance

Made for Newground's Pixel Day a few years back, a date where users are encouraged to submit pixel art creations! The character was born from the shape of chipped paint on my door's frame; I've always loved looking for patterns and silhouettes in wood grain, chipped paint, etc. After settling on a design, the floating-rock scenery came from a desire to find a setting that A) fit the ninja-like design of the character, and B) gave me some room to work with texture in pixel art, a medium I don't work in very often.
