If like me you've always loved the retro pixel art style then you'd think it'd be easy to learn how to draw pixel art. The truth is it really can't be taught, I watched a few Youtube videos on the subject and realised that you really have to keep playing around with the pixels until it starts to look like something. Below are some early sketches and tests for the RTW Level one characters based on Donkey Kong.
Bukaya Saka was really the character that helped me nail the designs. All the rest of the designs took inspiration from this character build.
