PIXELLER – Kit da Studio Wins FWA!

Pixeller -try it out!

Kit Man (IMM 2002) has been creating excellent work for years at http://www.kitdastudio.com and has just launched a mobile pixel editor called PIXELLER.  The app has just won an FWA – so major congrats on a great app!

Here is the story from Kit – enjoy!

Why make it?

Coz there’s no such a serious-enough pixel art editor in the market, so i decided to make one – for myself and for people like us [:)] which allows us to create pixel art anytime anywhere when we have 5 or 10 minutes free

Why pixel art?

It is a style that never grow old; and it always remind me the golden age of gaming – which means the age where multimedia craftsmen need to push their skills, imagination and playability design to the very-edge under the limited resources. I still think the games of the 80s from Nintendo are the best game to spend time with.

What was a challenge?

I am new to the imaging part of objective-C. So I don’t really know where to start; after I’ve done sketches of Pixeller on scrap papers. The solution is step-by-step and bit-by-bit. I’ve broken things down into very small single tasks – and solve it one-by-one. Like playing puzzle. And through which I become more confident in programming [:)]

It looks complicated!

It has been a dilemma to me, to make it quickly OR to make it like drag-and-drop pixel art editor. Finally i decided to support more features to make it a serious-enough pixel art editor – reason : tools are here to support creativity and it can’t be too limited.  In the end, it took from design to product – 2 months time

What’s next for Pixeller?

I’ve done 80% of what I’ve sketched on the design notes. The next step would be ANIMATION ! With the introduction of a timeline – and pixel artists can make an animated GIF out of it ! the video and features info will be here – http://www.kitdastudio.com/?p=513 and screencaps can be grabbed from here – http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pixeller/id511355490?mt=8 If you have more questions I would love to answer them [:)] Pixeller v1.1 http://www.kitdastudio.com

    The product, according to the brand, can be applied
    throughout the day on dry hair if one’s hair is medium to very coarse. This article will explain the hair product diversion conspiracy and list ways that you can determine whether or not the beloved salon brand you saw in Walgreens last week was truly diverted merchandise or strategically placed by the powers that be. Generally, these products are more expensive than their watered-down counterparts, but you can find a few affordable pure silicone hair products (see below).
