BLOCKTOBER 2019

Created by JudeBuffumPixels on Instagram, the challenge named BLOCKTOBER II – Myths & Legends consisted on creating a pixelart piece every day, depicting the monsters on the prompt list.

This year I was able to go through with it and not skip a day, learning a lot throughout the process. Here are the results:

Space Siren

Was she human? Was she even a “She”? Could be an “It” for all he cared… a robot, an hologram, a dream, a ghost. All that mattered was that her soul shined through the stars peeking outside the spaceship window… and he burned with them.

WHY YOU HATE US, INTERNET?

Ilustração feita após o polémico “ban” por parte do Tumblr aos mamilos femininos (“female presenting nipples” nas suas próprias palavras) e à nudez em geral. Não seria tão grave se fosse caso isolado, mas a crescente aversão e censura às representações de nudez feminina e masculina, incluindo obras de arte, nas redes sociais é no mínimo preocupante.


Illustration done after Tumblr’s controversial ban on “female presenting nipples” (by their own words) and nudity in general. It wouldn’t be so serious if it was just an isolated case, but the increasing censorship and aversion to depictions of female and male nudity, including artworks, on social media platforms is, at least, worrying.
