What is Pixelhobby?
Pixelhobby by Oraloa is an exciting and relaxing creative hobby that can keep you busy for hours.
How does Pixelhobby work?
The principle is to place small plastic cubes on a plate. You don't need any glue, and everything fits together effortlessly.
With the help of a pattern, it couldn't be simpler to place your cubes and create your own work.
Lucia van den Berg
Lucia van den Berg, hailing from a small town in the Netherlands, found her love for art in her childhood, inspired by the beautiful tulip fields and windmills surrounding her home. The vivid colors and the quiet beauty of her homeland became a constant source of inspiration for her art. Van Gogh's enchanting representations of the Dutch countryside had a profound influence on her, along with the intricate patterns and symbolism in Gustav Klimt's works. However, Lucia's passion for art was not limited to the local scenery. As a young adult, she embarked on numerous travels, exploring diverse landscapes around the world. Her works, primarily created with wood pencils and occasionally combined with digital art, reflect the diverse environments she has encountered. Her piece "Macaw Family" draws from her time in South America, where she was captivated by the vibrant colors and sounds of the jungle. "Mountain Escape" and "Field of Fragrance" are testaments to her travels through Canada and France, respectively, while "Sakura no Tancho" was inspired by a visit to Japan, where she fell in love with the serene beauty of traditional Japanese architecture and the country's symbolic crane and cherry blossom trees. Despite her talent, Lucia remains a relatively unknown artist. She has always preferred the quiet solitude of her travels and the comfort of her small studio in the Netherlands to the limelight. She continues to travel and create, driven not by the desire for recognition, but by the joy of capturing the world's beauty in her art. Her works, each a snapshot of a time and place, are cherished by those lucky enough to stumble upon them.
Country of Origin: The Netherlands
Influences: Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, her Dutch heritage, her travels, and her passion for exploring the natural world.
How to make Pixel Hobby Oraloa?
How do symbols work in pixel art? If you opt for a pixel art project with a symbolic pattern, you'll notice that the pattern is divided into several segments.each segment of the pattern has 4 symbols, each with numbers, representing a specific color. Use the color number (shown on the back of the pixel square) corresponding to the number next to the symbol.
The same symbols represent a different color number in each segment of the pattern.
You can slide the transparent base plate over the pattern segment to see exactly where each colored pixel should be placed, eliminating the need to count.
Make sure the arrow on the back of the base plate always points in the same direction to maintain correct orientation.
Place the pixels on the base plate pins with tweezers or your fingers, and they will be fixed immediately, without the need for glue or an iron.
Once the pattern segment is complete, you can move the base plate to the next pattern segment. Repeat these steps until the base plate is completely filled. You can then proceed with the next base plate, and so on.
The pattern will indicate which segment of the pattern corresponds to which baseplate.
Is the project complete? You can now assemble the base plates with dovetails and frame them!
What do you need?
Become an artist step by step
The baseplate has at least 2000 pins (50x40). An arrow is marked on the back of the baseplate. This arrow indicates the orientation of the baseplate and the pixel artwork. It's important that the arrow always points in the same direction. For example, always upwards or always to the right.
Our clamps are specially designed for Pixelhobby. Which one is your favorite?
There are 4 notches on the back of the baseplate. These slots are for dovetail connectors. These dovetail connectors link the base plates together. You can expand the project as much as you like by adding more base plates! On the side of the canvas, locate the symbol and corresponding number on the legend.
Does your baseplate keep shifting?
By using the template, you can avoid this problem...Requirements: Template, transparent folder and tape.
1. Place the template in a transparent folder.
2. Place the template in the correct position on the model so that all symbols are visible.
3. Tape the template to the baseplate (the plastic case prevents the template from tearing).
4. Now you can place the baseplate in the template and start pixelating!
Would you like to order a frame for your pixel? The order number for the right frame can be found on the first page of the pattern, the materials list. Please contact us.
