Doom Pixel Demake

I experimented with demaking some Doom sprites and backgrounds. This is a super fun exercise for pixel artist and I’m definitely going to make more. It’s interesting to see what you come up with, being limited to even lower specs than the original artists.

I stuck with the original pixel resolution but limited the color palette to 12 colors total, to see how that would look. It forced me to be less painter-ish and made the game look a bit more cartoony. I also found myself make heavy use of straight blacks to keep the overall dark tonality of what Doom is to me.

Here is a comparison of a full original screenshot versus my remake… 128 colors for the original, 12 for my version…
