codestargames sent: Do you and Michafrar ever collaborate on any pixel art? Funny how both of you guys were on TSR/pixeltendo back in the day and both of you sort of ended up working with Jontron.

No. Also, I introduced him to Jon.

We have Shane. Once. It’s just an old and ugly lineart from 2005. I’d rather forget about it lol

LOL! I just suck at consistency!

I draw her from memory. Nova doesn’t have a reference sheet yet.

Someone linked this old JonTron vid I posted in 2010 on my reddit page today. So many bad comments. 1 mil+ subs later… People love to discourage you for trying new things. Don’t let haters get you down! You never know how wrong they might be.

Ask me a question | ask.fm/Michafrar

Thought I’d let you all know I started an ask.fm account. I almost always privately reply to asks on Tumblr, but if you want me to publicly post answers, go ask me literally anything over there!

clubby-bear sent: How do you make your color palettes? The JonTron sprites have an amazing color scheme o.o

Visuals convey more than text, but I’ll explain the image briefly.

Hue shifting is important to get colorful sprites, but you should also play around with saturation. I lower saturation as the shades get darker; and I raise it as it gets lighter. I hope that helps!

True love. I added the kiss without Jon even knowing about it, mwhaha. This is the first time I sprited Jacques more realistic looking.

My girlfriend Jenna got to join the team of a Hat in Time as a Texture artist :D WOOO! I’m so proud of her. Thanks again to Mecha for giving her such a cool task. So here’s a celebration picture for both the game, Mecha and Jenna <3

It&#8217;s nice to make art for myself again. -u- If you wait a moment they spin for you!

proto165 sent: Just wanted to let you know, JonTron is having a Q&A at SGC. He was asked about who made his pixel art and you were mentioned! Love your work, just felt the need to let you know you might get a LOT more views soon! :)

I know ! :D He mentionned me at the Normalboots Q&A first. He’s such a magnificent bastard

Jon’s surrounded by artists. Heck - his close friends and girlfriend are artists! He really cares about the art community :)
