The winter holidays are coming up and I feel like it's important to think about the less fortunate. I think it's important to use this occasion give something to those who perhaps have lost hope, who have been neglected by society, who are easily forgotten in today's modern world. I'm talking, of course, about the Mechwarrior Online players.

I've been having a lot of fun lately, getting back into pixel art and painting MWO's beautiful mechs in the style of early 90's video games. Some people have even been asking me for help to make some cool animated signatures.

Well, I don't know if anyone's interested in this, but I'm just trying to bring a little bit of sunshine to the forum instead of my usual doom and gloom.

Maybe there are others like me, who want to display some of their favourite mechs in their sig, but don't want to go and make a big Photoshop masterpiece. Just open Microsoft Paint, copy-paste some of these mechs into a .png file no bigger than 720x80 pixels and Bob's your uncle. If you don't like the colour of the eyes, the lasers, whatever, just change it.

TL;DR: Here's a lot of Mechs I made with Microsoft Paint. I'm going to put them in my sig. If anyone else wants to put some mechs in their sig, feel free to use these. My gift to you.

EDIT: You can find the Clan pixel mechs here!

Merry X-mas, everyone.

FAQ.

Q: When are you going to finish all the mechs in MWO?
A: When PGI stops making new ones.

Q: May I use this pixel art in my forum signature?
A: Yes.

Q: May I use this pixel art for a simple computer game I'm making?
A: Yes.

Q: May I print this pixel art and hang it on my refrigerator?
A: Yes

Q: May I tattoo this pixel art on my wife's lower back?
A: Yes.

PS: Garth, if you're reading, here's a small gift to you too, since I give you a hard time sometimes. Don't know if you're still rocking a grey, black and red Cicada, but here you go.

EDIT: I've added orange and a second shade of red and blue.

you definitely brightened up my day with this stuff. Very nice work and detail. Made me feel nostalgic and reminded me of my starting days with BT as I started out with Crescent Hawk's Revenge.

Thanks for sharing this.
