Pixel art is like building things using Lego bricks!

I've only recently got myself into creating pixel art since a few months back and I'm loving the process. It only dawned on me that creating art and animation in pixels is much like creating something using lego! When you build something using lego, the end product has a certain charm to it.

Here's my latest work:
This is a screen capture of an animation I am currently doing for the upcoming Satay Club game.


Pixel art to me, feels more like pointilism. Much like how Georges Seurat did it in his paintings back in the days of impressionist paintings. Which brings me to this inspiring old man who discovered Microsoft Paint and he never stopped creating pixel art till his death in July this year. His name was Hal Lasko.
You can learn a little more about him and his work in this short inspiring video.

Regardless of whatever forms of art you are into, don't stop creating. Keep doing what you love and contribute to the beauty of this world.

Satay Club Game Teaser preview. Updates so far!

Update to Satay Club the game! The main gameplay mechanics is largely complete. The animation you can view below will most likely be part of the game! Except for the music. The music for this game teaser video is added to see if 60s  local A-Go-Go music will a-go-go (haha sorry!) well with pixel art. If you enjoy the video do pass it around!

Satay Club Game in production now

A new game from Afzainizam Zahari is in the works right now. The gameplay will be totally different from the other popular games that I have. Here is a sneak peek!


I have developed a penchant for small and cute pixel graphics. It reminds me a lot of the games that I played when I was very young. With this game I hope to recreate that nostalgic feeling in both the graphics for this game as well as the theme of this game which is based on the long gone Satay Club in Singapore.

Torotto from Meiji

I found this this little gem of a snack in Tokyo recently while I was browsing the snacks shop in Hirai. Each packet has 9 little cubes of chocolate pieces in it. And each cube of chocolate has a creamy nuts filling in the centre. The interesting thing about it is that the chocolate cube had actually been baked and that gave it its rough texture. The taste is AWESOME!

I wonder if its the recipe of the chocolate or the baking of the chocolate that made it taste so good.

I got this pack for just 48 yen a pack.

Highly recommended!
