Daily Pattern: Frogger

So Alyssa requested a Frogger pattern, and who am I to deny myself an excuse to do video game themed art?


I started off with a much higher-res and stylized version of the titular frog, but it looks odd and didn't read as Frogger. So I stayed pretty true to that sprite...

I went pretty bright with the colors, unlike the last two pixel patterns. Once I finished I knew I had to go back and add some details like color bleeding, screen fading and horizontal hold lines to recreate the the gritty, grimy feeling of an actual arcade machine. Just for fun-zies.
