INSTAGRAM USED TO BRING VIDEO GAMES INTO LIFE
We’ve seen plenty of 8bit IRL before, but Mel Marcelo’s series brings a new twist.
He uses Instagram to take the photos and then photoshops in the 8bit awesome, creating some really impressive images that look stunningly realistic.
Some personal favorites are Link in the Apple store and the characters from Wild Gunmen hanging out in the Taco Bell. Both are great examples of the subtle details Mel infuses into his designs, like creating pixelated shadows, to make the images look virtually realistic.
