Animation director Caleb Hystad (Raven Tales, Scurge: Hive) has been posting a collection of pixelart pieces re-imagining the Space Marine and monsters from Doom as adorable sprites.

"John Carmack and [id Software] were a huge influence on my youth," he explains. "I spent hours making my own sprites, and digging up new .WAD files to play."

Hystad says he's created two series of prints for the first and second Doom games, and he's posted nine pieces from the first set so far (each set has 11 pieces).

I've added several of those images after the break, buy you can see the rest of Hystad's Doom art and look out for upcoming images on his 8x8 Pixel blog.
