This thing has a blog now

When I first started to upload things on here I was looking for a way to interact with the users but they didn’t have any way of doing so. Even if someone did leave me a bad review I couldn’t post on that review.

So I would like to say “hello world!” to anyone who is interested in listening. My handle is Mur and I fiddle around with video game art. I have not been doing this for that long and I wanted to bring some nostalgic vibes to shirts everywhere.

What I do:
I get a lot of my designs directly from the game using an sceenshots and then modify them using a photo editor. I prefer to use retro games because sprites are easy to enlarge without any degeneration to the image quality.

when I first started off I did a pretty poor job on a lot of the transparency for a lot of the images and I had to go back and fix a few of them. This allowed for multiple shirt colors without looking really bad or out of place.

Since then I have improved on my designs and have tried to branch out to 16-bit graphics (SNES) and a new style I am toying around with, Vectoring images.

Originally I wanted a way to increase the size of normal PNGs without degeneration and randomly stumbled on a way to make some pretty crazy watercolorish designs from small pixlated images (Check out my kefka designs). I am sure this is already “a thing” but I am calling it “Vectorizing” so keep an eye out for some of my designs with this tag.

If you ever are interested in giving me some suggestions on what I should try to do next or if you have any issues with a design. I am always looking on improving.

Thanks!

Mur
