Pixel Art: Santa Claws, Elves, and Christmas Trees



Some single color sprites and tiles. The elves have knives and Santa is unrecognizable as such, so the image only sort of makes sense, and even then each requires the context of the others for any holiday meaning to be conveyed. I like it.

Gestalt theory says that the human will find patterns, and color combinations in certain situations, like the one above, can induce this response.
