Even with a great abundance of video games these days, more and more developers opt for indie pixel arcades and adventures as they’re relatively easy to create with means at hand. The only thing that’s surely much easier is crafting a pixelated version of yourself with this photo effect for Photoshop. We’ve made sure to add a little pickle to the idea by applying colorful trippy gradients.
Stardew Valley, Undertale, Terraria, what other epic pixel games pop up in your mind? For this photo effect, we got inspired by the classic ones, having the minimum of shadows, lighting, and details, but wait before you make any assumptions! The added old RGB screen ripples erase the doubt about the asset being vintage to the core. And now about the technical characteristics. The downloaded file comes with 3 PSD canvases of different orientations: horizontal, vertical & square. Before stating your pixelated journey, add 5 patterns and 12 gradients to Photoshop, following the attached Installation file. Feel free to set the pixel size you like — small, medium, or large ones, playing around with the detailization. Now you’re all set for introducing a brand new branding presentation, gaming poster design, social media avatar, Insta story and more!
