Q-BLOCK: Create 3D Pixel Art Online
Aww this is just too much fun! Take a 2D sprite, extrude it into 3D and then shave and tweak as required.
Voila, you’ve just described Q-BLOCK and created your first piece of 3D pixel art:
It’s cool pixel art, in 3D (rotation under you control). And you can edit any model you like, change the colours or just add on new parts.
I had a very similar idea to this years ago, and never bothered to do anything with it. I built a small prototype app in DarkBASIC that would build a 3D model from a 2D sprite. But the Q-BLOCK guys have gone a whole step beyond that, and it rocks.
Check out their blog for some excellent examples of insanely good Q-BLOCKery.

There is definitely some good fun to be had with that. I wanna make 8-bit sprites of myself, then turn myself 3D and see if it looks like me, that could be pretty sweet. Nice find, haven’t heard of this before now.
Oh wow, this is really cool!
Have you seen 3D Dot Game Heroes? It’s going to use this kind of “3D pixel art”: http://www.joystiq.com/2009/08/20/from-softwares-3d-dot-game-heroes-does-pixel-art-ps3-style/
