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).


HK Nerd Party! & Pixel Punch meets ComputeHer!

15 11 2010

Pixel Punch went to the Hello Kitty “I Heart Nerds” Party on Saturday! Did anyone else go???!

Mike & Thymine dressed up fairly stereotypical nerdy!  Thymine wanted to wear a power glove & duck hunt nintendo guns, but ran out of time getting things ready.

Instead, she made 8-bit Hearts for them to wear!

Purikura ! You can see Mike’s pixel heart here!

Thymine likes Hello Kitty, but isn’t an obsessed fan.  Mike is indifferent.  Thymine actually really wanted to go to the event for one thing!


ComputeHer & 8-bit weapon were performing that night!  These are two chiptune artists/groups that Thymine used to listen to when she first started getting into chiptunes 2 years ago!


8 bit Weapon:

Kalamari Kastle & friends dancing to the beats!

After, Pixel Punch ran saw 8bit weapon/ComputeHer walking by & decided to strike a conversation.  But it was a lot harder than expected! Mike only got the attention of ComputeHer.

This is what Mike & Thymine thought would happen:

(Cigarette to the eye!)

Thankfully, that was not the case! She was actually really nice to Pixel Punch even though they were being awkward starstruck creepers! They told her they’ve been planning to start a chiptune group, and were so out of it & shy they even forgot to even introduce themselves!  But, ComputeHer was super nice and told them to keep in contact!

We Heart you ComputeHer!

Thymine thought these kids were adorable!  She wants awesome kids like that one day!

Here’s some of the art Pixel Punch liked! (and there’s more in the thumbnail gallery at the bottom of this entry!)

Thymine liked this a lot because it reminded her of her Print Making days!

Mike liked this!

And this!

After, Pixel Punch practiced a bit at Thymine’s place.

And eventually fell asleep because it was a very long day!

Hope everyone had a fun time at the event if they went! and hope everyone had a nice weekend!
