This was a commission requested by Nick Wozniak aka @norkwoz
I really went overboard with this as he only requested a single stage diorama and I ended up making a five-stage one which spanned countless layers, 44 different PSD files, 709 frames of animation and tweens.
Nick wanted to have a couple of the enemies from the Explodatorium featured in the diorama so I just went and threw in everything you could encounter in the whole thing (besides the miniboss). As much as possible, I also tried to incorporate the majority of Plague Knight and Shovel Knight’s arsenal into the whole sequence. To top it off, I made sure that it loops together nicely enough.

However. Other than this, all i can say is that it is very masterfully done. All of the movements are very fluid, all of the creatures act, or atleast appear to act as they do in the game. The transitions between room to room is very lovely as well, though it would have been nice to have a bit more action in some of the more filled rooms just so we could enjoy their pixally goodness just a little longer~
A very very good job~
