Developer, Asset Creator or are you a bit of both?:

What made you become a dev/artist?:

Aseprite/Paint.NET


What’s one tip you would give to someone starting out?:

I would tell him/her not to give up, to be consistent and try to motivate himself/herself with whatever is around him/her.



How do you promote your work (games or assets)?:

I promote them through social networks, portfolios and showcase pages, which serve as a springboard to reach people all over the world.



What project are you working on now?:

Now I would like to work on assets focused on 1bit, with different themes and with different game objectives.



Any completed projects/work you want to promote?

Right now I’m working as a freelancer in a very interesting company called Sowork. I’ve been there for almost a year and and mix different styles, among them with I work, pixels.



Favourite game ever & why?:

Street of rage, I love this saga, I think it’s a game that you never get tired of playing and for me it’s still in my top videogames.
