The NESDev Weekly Graphics Challenge
The NESDev Weekly Graphics Challenge is a structured series of graphics prompts designed by myself and Ellen Larsson, to give artists practical experience working with NES limitations.
Season One ran during the first quarter of 2022, and is designed to provide a participant with the vast bulk of graphics assets necessary for making a basic platformer game, ala Loderunner, Layla, or Super Mario Bros.
It debuted on the NesDev Discord Server, and as such assumes basic understanding of NES graphics structure (such as palette and sprite/tile restrictions). However, if you'd like a primer on that structure, this series from Bit Ink Studios is top notch.
