An opening spread pixel art illustration for Info magazine AUG 2014 issue, depicting the various "factions" using the Internet as a tool for electoral propaganda in Brazil.

The client asked for a Clash of Clans style battlefield but in a more modern urban environment. Since my pixel art style is more "16-bit esque" I decided to mix it with Advance Wars :D.

Art direction: Rafael Costa
Article design: Fernando Saraiva
The candidates. Since I was aiming at a 16-bit/Advance Wars visual, I decided to make smaller, more expressive portraits instead of pursuing perfect likeness.
Some of the vehicles and props I created specifically for this project. The buildings and the people were recycled from older works.
The final, assembled illustration. Pretty chaotic! Just like our elections :).
The final opening spread.
