Hello Wizards & Sorceresses,

After the summer pause here we go again, hardcore working on Wizards of Unica to finalize its assets and dev!

Standardize your design!

Hello Wizards & Sorceresses,

after completing my last personal challenge of 500 assets in 60 days, I got a straight month of resting. As every active creative person knows well,  there is no such thing as complete rest for artistic minds, but I tried to keep distance from direct production, just taking care of my family and business, playing games in my queue and Continue reading

Personal challenge: 2 weeks left!

Hey everybody,

But because of the non-primary nature of this project (Luca and I have very busy life with business and family) is very easily to get lost into perfectionism and never-ending dev. Continue reading

How to improve your pixel art?

My sweet Behemoth after his 2017 remake

In 2014 I had no serious experience with pixel art, and no clue about animation. But when Luca shared with me the main concept for Wizards of Unica, I understood that’s the only way that game should have been.

Despite I’m a pro artist in both traditional and digital media, my only previous works in pixel art has been Vega and Sagat portraits when I was 9, made in Paint. And my only approach to animation has been a lovely week with RPG maker, as a teenager: a short story due to my zero code skills. Continue reading
