Those of you familiar with the Warhammer 40,000 war game, its miniatures and its colorful universe will know the extent fans will go to create beautiful dioramas incorporating customized miniatures as well as handmade scenery.
However, SteeJoe on DeviantArt
has taken a different approach, by depicting the diverse armies of this universe constantly at war in animated pixel art dioramas. The final artwork is breathtaking and must require an impressive amount of work as there aren't any existing Warhammer 40,000 pixel art models to use.
Here are a couple of the smallest ones, but Psyforce64 on Deviantart collected all of them
, and the biggest ones include impressive special effects.
Per the Filipino-born Canadian artist, the pixel art itself is done in Photoshop, and the animation is done in After Effect.
