Pixel Punch update(s)

8 01 2011

Pixel punch projects:

Xayden/Mike is still working on the game. Check out his progress!

Thymine is still working on that animation.  She also finally got a MGB, but is still looking for a dmg.

Both are learning FamiTracker, (Thymine did a very plain cover of Kraid’s Lair from Metroid, found here: [x]).

M also got Thymine a screen printing kit for Christmas!

Thymine has been scared to screen print for awhile due to what happened her last year in Davis, but is trying to get over it for the good of Pixel Punch!

So, out came the screen printing book.

Printing on mylar/transparency is probably the better choice to get the perfect lines for sharp edges like these hearts, but PP are two poor college students, who ran out of ink :,(.  So, rubylith is was! It’s a bit off, so Thymine will probably have to fix it and do it a third time.

And remember to have the shiny side down! otherwise you’ll be saying:

because that’s not the side you’re supposed to be cutting & scrapping (which Thymine forgot about after a year & a half of not screen printing).


Trial & Error…

16 11 2010

By complete accident (from making pixel hearts for the I Heart Nerds event, to making business cards) Thymine made a Pixel Punch logo, along with brushes for it in photoshop! :

Sometimes accidents are nice! especially for those times you can’t think of an idea or design.

Thymine has also been working on business cards.  It was also one of those trial & error projects.  Here’s the business card adventure!

Start off with squares of course.

“That looks good…”

“Oh…. it’s way bigger than an average business card”

Back to the drawing board, with smaller squares this time:


This is where the business card + logo came to be.  It made sense to have two hearts, one for Mike & one for Thymine.

Thymine got dizzy doing this.

A lot more work… so Thymine decided to stop there, cut them out and then get some sleep.

Perfect! They are about the same size as a normal businesscard! They’re just a bit…different…

After, Thymine remembered she had a print-making background, and could screen-print the hearts, which would probably be faster for mass-production!  (Plus, it might look a bit cleaner than marker).

There will probably be more trial & error to come.
