A Season in Japan by Tom-the-S A Season in Japan by Tom-the-S
No, I'm not planning on spending a season in that wonderful country across the ocean (yet). What I have done is create a digital image, using solely my wits and every pixel that a modern computing system has to offer. It's the most sumptuous morsel of Japanese landscape art since the backgrounds of Samurai Champloo.

This one was inspired by watching Big Hero 6 and one of the maps on Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Big Hero 6 takes place in a fictional, futuristic blending of San Francisco and Tokyo which I found to be just the coolest. Wanting to draw something in a similar theme reminded me of one of the views visible on the map de-Season.

I designed this to be a phone background, so feel free to introduce your phone to the Japanese countryside as seen through pixel art.

Amazing!! You sir are very talented. How many colors did you use? I heard pixel artists like to challenge themselves by limiting their colors o;

Would I be able to use this as a background on my page?<3

Thanks! A lot of pixel artists will use color palettes for specific game systems (e.g. SNES, NES, GBA). Frankly that's much more challenging than what I did. However, I prefer the aesthetic of the full palette (along with gradient effects and transparency), so that's what I use.

I would love for you to use it as a background on your page. If you can link back to my page somehow, that would be great.
