Mighty Games/Hipster Whale: the Voxel Art edition

Collection of all the voxel art I’ve done for Crossy Road, Shooty Skies and Disney Crossy Road. I’ve designed and created voxel art that I specified [not everything] and you might have seen some of the concept art and studies I did. I’ll update with new screenshots as I go along. A lot of gifs! Note that I did not implement all the voxel art into the game myself.

Please forgive the video title popping up in some gifs; it’s taken me a few days to make gifs that actually worked. I tried my best. I even made a distorted, static gif by accident one time!

And I used imgur for the first time too! I only got downvotes for my public posts. Now I’m in the negatives in terms of standing. So I kept everything private again. 🙁

I don’t want internet popularity so it’s all good but I guess people don’t like my posts there. I’m just using imgur so I could upload larger GIF files but they sometimes turn out janky. What is imgur for anyway? What is their audience looking for? Memes, comics and entertainment it seems? I don’t want to be judged with votes, nor do I want to be part of a internet contest. We have that already with social media 😛

Many thanks to Rhiannon & Mel for helping me make these screenshots and GIFs possible <3 <3 <3

Here’s my blog with my studies and fanart.

This is my last Disney Crossy Road thing I worked on! Eventually Disney took the game down from being available (it’s really up to them now as it is their IP). There’s still players asking for it but it’s gone forever(?) I don’t know.

I created all the characters [except Merlady & Scuba chicken] & environment. Including Nudibranch, Diver, Skeleton Pirate, Seahorse, Nautilus, Octopus, Starfish, Ocean Turtle, Sea Sponge and Angler Fish.

It’s me in Shooty Skies – it’s me as a character made by Ryan Keable/mulletdulla! (2017)!

I designed myself as a Bear and Ryan Keable created me in voxel art! I didn’t make myself in voxel art but I just wanted to put it here for prosperity. (: My blog post with my concept & giftart.

Gameplay! A lot of the cool VFX is kudos to Ryan too.

Disney Crossy Road – I made myself in the credits!

A lot of voxel art in 3 years, phew!

And thereby ends my post! Phew! I did a lot of work! I can now move on, knowing I have documented the gist of what I’ve done in a blog post (:

Will I do voxel art in the future? Probably if I’m needed. As I’m very much a freelancer now, technically unemployed, always looking for work and working on my portfolio :’)

I’m going to keep going and do things in baby steps as per usual.

Edit June 2024: Note I’m just one of the artists who does Crossy Road art things!

Thus far I’m the artist that has worked on Crossy Road shenanigans the longest on/off since 2016 but I wasn’t there from the beginning which was 2014. A lot of artists have come and gone too.

And it’s going to be 10 years by the end of this year :0!!
