An Angry Bird (and Chun Li) lands in The Sims Social through Tile Art
It's nothing short of awesome when you see a game community create in their game of choice for the sake of it. The Sims Social players haven't even been at it for six months, and already they're showing mad skills. Take Tile Art, for instance: It's not as creative as stacking has proved to be, but it's an indisputable display of skill. (Remember Super Mario?)
This time around, a player known as BBQ has recreated the red Angry Bird from Rovio's iconic mobile game using various colored tiles from the in-game store. What's most impressive about this piece is its accuracy. Just look at the shading! Sure, the finer points of the original drawing are lost in translation, but for what BBQ has done using just square tiles is impressive.
The second piece is Chun Li, one of the most popular characters from the classic fighting game, Street Fighter. Also created by BBQ, this is probably the most impressive piece of Tile Art we've seen yet. Again, you have to consider what the artist is working with: square tiles. Just like in the Angry Bird piece, BBQ displays his/her skills in shading and attention to the details that make the image recognizable. Now, let's see what BBQ can do with, say, The Mona Lisa.
