Create 8-Bit Art and Animation on Your Android Device

There are quite a few drawing and painting applications available for Android. They range from the incredibly basic ones aimed at kids to more full featured applications that allow you to create works of art on your mobile device—that is of course assuming that you have some artistic ability to begin with. The vast majority of these apps though are intended to be used for general free form doodling. Let’s 8-Bit Art by XDA Forum Member CraZyDecigames is a little different in that respect.

The application, as the name suggests, primarily serves the purpose of allowing artists, animators, and game designers to create 8-bit style raster images and animations. The applications supports PNG, JPG, BMP, and GIF formats, and boasts a fairly impressive feature list for an application that’s still in its beta stage. Some of the applications key features include:

  • 9 configurable drawing tool
  • 32 bit ARGB pallete
  • Customisable colour/pallete manager
  • Ability to work with small images at high zoom without interpolation
  • Auto save and full resume when reopening application
  • Save animations  to sprite set in PNG format
  • Built in file manager
  • Many, many more…

If you have a need to create images such as this, Let’s 8-Bit Art is well worth a look. As mentioned above, the application is still currently in the beta stage, and unfortunately lacks the ability to save and reopen projects until the final version.  If you’d like to check this out and help contribute to the beta test, check out the application thread.
