Huge Pixel Artwork by Jimmy Something

Posted 8 years ago by Art

I love love love pixel art. I also love massively detailed illustrations. Artist “Jimmy Something” combined both of these to perfection. When the image rose to the top of Reddit on Friday morning, I pored over every square inch.

The artist, going by jimmypewpew on Twitter, drew the floor of a his own “Pxl Con,” a thriving geek convention filled with an enormous variety of cosplayers and celebrities. The full illustration is 1200 x 848 pixels in size and took Jimmy over a year to create.

Take a detailed look at his intense work. You’ll see all your favorites and a few nods to various aspects of geek culture. On the large image I’ve added a map-like letter and number grid to help you find and share the location of interesting vignettes. For instance, check out the Mythbusters’ verdict on director Michael Bay’s (now dormant) re-imagining of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. You’ll find it at coordinates A-1.

I also love the scene where Dorothy, the Lion, and the Tin Man watch was their friend the Scarecrow is welcomed by fellow Batman villains Two-Face, Poison Ivy, the Riddler, and the Penguin. That’s at J-6.

There are also many obscure references which make this piece true amazing: Bronies at G-7, Flight of the Conchords in their Robot costumes at I-6, and an evil purple tentacle from the 1993 video game “Day of the Tentacle” at F-8.
