Sketches are cool. Well, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a pixel-sketch, so I don’t know if they have any of the same rawness and charm as drawn sketches. (Don’t know how pixel-art is made.) I suppose some of the effect of unpolishedness must be present, at least.
Did you ever happen to play a game called The Adventures of Captain Comic (if you had a computer 30 years ago)? It starts out in a nighttime-environment. Darkness can be like a blanket sometimes. Closing out the harshness. Light can be so cold.
Haha the sketches are usually a chaos of shapes and colors, they are more than anything guides to know where to start drawing later, to see compositions, color harmonies, etc. Some of these days I will upload some examples-
I did not know that game, from what I see it is for DOS! I am surprised by the level of pixel art that it has, more with the limitations of colors and sizes that existed at that time!
