On Pixel Perfection

Second is The Dead Pixel Society. A group of 1990s-era icon designers have reunited to triumph the 32×32 pixel canvas of their youth. Each icon is handcrafted pixel by pixel with the same limited, 256-color palette of yesteryear. It really takes a video to stress the attention to detail and insane amount of reworking it takes to get to a finished product.

As far as my favorite, Benny from The Lego Movie is pretty hilarious. But that might be influenced by the fact that I finally watched the movie yesterday.
