Pixel Art Interpretation: Chill Vibes

By Joel | June 1, 2022

Title: 'Chill Vibes'

To me, Chill Vibes encompasses a scene of love, loss, regret, and sadness that can be evoked not only through pixels but through the artist himself. It is all melancholy and loss, and delightfully somber, with enough but not too much magic realism. This one scene, as it stands, could be the start, or the end, of a love story.

Chill Vibes opens with a spellbinding, wordless sequence of a young woman peering through an open window. The coolness of the air outside commands that darkness approaches. The colors used make Chill Vibes one of my very favorite scenes in which to gaze upon.

From certain angles, you can see, barely, the woman's determination, ambition, and sadness. We are left to guess what she is actually feeling and the artist does a brilliant job of focusing on those angles without revealing too much. The atmosphere is enhanced by the wisp of a gentle breeze and interrupted only by the subtle charge of her cell phone.

Such a striking scene of a woman all dressed up, and yet, has nowhere to go.
