BenchLab Talented Instructor: Dinah of Ooukination. You'll be learning from an individual who paved her way into the art scene with curiousity and dedication! Designing pixel characters was a challenge she took as the nostalgic 8-bit art style took flight again in the online artist community. Dinah's art style graced the art cover of a song, GAME ON!, by local artists the BassHowlers and Qwamii and this opened her doors to more opportunities. Her popularity gained traction due to her incorporation of Bruneian elements into her work, such as her Puak Jati series as well as the Bruneian monuments gif created in celebration of the 35th National Day. Dinah hopes to popularise this art style and to show that pixel art is not something to be intimidated by!
