8 bit by Dana-T 8 bit by Dana-T
I'm no 80s child but I remember constantly stealing my older brother's toys and playing his old games (and erasing his files, hehehe) and reading his random X-Men comics so this is kind of a homage to that.

Done in the style I did my last submission in cause it's quick and fun.



Pencil'd lines - colored in PS

You just illustrated my childhood! I love this piece, it's awesome! 
I myself am more 90s 16bit than 80s 8bit, but still, love it all!

Haha, the guy with the jacket looks like one of those lingering-cool-wannabe-little-brother types.

The color scheme is perfect for this. Looking at box art and ads for games and toys from the 80s, they all seemed to have this brown/red/yellow thing going on. Is it weird that that's what I noticed first about this?

Good shit, man

Am I a sad man for knowing that is the Colecovision version of Donkey Kong on screen?

You should do this style more often, its charming to no end! :)

I don't know what the Colevovision version is xD I admit I've never actually played that game, I was just following the advice of my boyfriend who actually was an 80s child (I just pretend)

hi-five for pretending to be an 80s child :iconawyeahplz: though I was '89 so technically.... ;)

I used to have a Colecovision and the Donkey Kong Game - [link]
Best home console version of the game IMHO [link]
