Cool graphics with geometrical shapes
MrDiv

Very close to Demoscene stuff and I like it. The mindset is the same. Well except for the realtime part. Which is a big part of the Demoscene stuff. :) But if you look at it only from a graphic standpoint.

Dynamic lit 2D Sprites

Check out Sprite Lamp! It is a tool to generate normalmaps/depthmaps mainly for painted/pixeled 2D sprites. Works for other stuff as well!

Dynamic Lit Stonewall
This is an example of a lit stonewall using Sprite Lamps generated depth map.

The technique has started to appear in some 2D games. As an example a similar use of it can be found in the Double Fine title Broken Age. If you want to know more. There is a talk that can be found here. The clip starts around 6 min in as it was a live broadcast from GDC13.

Awesome Art

Just have to make a post about Dan Hipp. Simply because the art is awesome.
Dan Hipp's Hobbit image

He uses a mishmash of characters from different known movies/series/art.. in a funny and engaging way. Can’t get enough of it.
