The Intricate Design Process Behind Perturbator's Animated Pixel Art "Sentient" Music Video

When pixel art, cyberpunk and horror collide.

When it comes to advanced artificial intelligence, most pop culture references depict the A.I.’s as the superior being, while humans are the ones cowering in fear. But what if the tables were turned? Electronic music artist Perturbator explores a post-war world where humans have fought and beaten the machines in a new animated pixel art music video for the song “Sentient.” The highlight of the video has to be the amount of effort that went into creating it. Directed by animator Valenberg, he created every frame in Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom Cintiq 24HD tablet, building each scene on a small canvas (320x120px) using the pencil tool (size 1px) most of the time. When asked why he chose this medium for the video, Valenberg explained that with the evolution of pixel art (meaning less restrictions on colors and the freedom to add in non-pixel elements) he wanted “to test the limits of what can be done with pixel art in ways that couldn’t be done before.” Watch his creation in the video above.
