22.1.2014 #pixelshit Wednesday

Below are some action and motion images from this week’s submissions. Okay, for next week, the theme is deities and divinity. As a reference, use Old Norse gods, angels, Lucifer, Zeus, Kronos, Jesus… whatever rocks your boat. Make it dramatic, pompous, beautiful! I upped the color limit, so use all your skills and free time on this and make it look gorgeous. Just don’t bite off more than you can chew. And don’t draw Muhammad! For inspiration:

Here are some additional rules for the coming week:

  • Size limit for this submission is 256 x 256 pixels
  • This submission is limited to 64 colors
  • Upload the image Imgur if possible. If not, use Twitter image uploader
  • You can of course submit multiple drawings if you want
  • When Wednesday comes (any timezone), tweet your creation with the hashtag #pixelshit (or if you need SFW hashtag, use #pixelWeek)
  • I will resize the images to a large size when I put them up. If you want to use the original size, please let me know

Merry Christmas, people! Even with the holidays we had a good number of submissions. Unfortunately I did not have time to make anything since I was drunk all the time, but I’ll promise to step up my game next year. Unfortunately I cannot host #pixelshit for next two weeks, but if someone else wants to take over during that time, feel free.

First of all, I’m sorry about the delay with this week’s post. Second, it was amazing to see the number of submissions this week! A lot of quality pixel art and most people have really improved in their art. So, the theme for the next Wednesday is status icons. Draw any number of status icons that could be used by the character you did few weeks back. If you didn’t submit for that week, just come up with some icons that could be used in a game.

Some status icons could include: stunned, in love, angry, enraged, drunk, etc.

Here are some additional rules for the coming week:

  • There is no maximum limit to number of icons to draw, but minimum is 2
  • Maximum size of one item is 16 x 16 pixels
  • This submission is limited to 32 colors
  • Upload the image Imgur if possible. If not, use Twitter image uploader
  • You can of course submit multiple drawings if you want

The theme for the next Wednesday is buildings. Draw any structure that resembles (or does not resemble) a building. It can be anything from small doghouse to a death star replica. If you want, you can also continue your work based on two previous themes – for example, if your tileset was a cave, you can draw a foot of a mountain with a cave entrance or if it was from inside a house, you can draw the house.

Here are some additional rules for the coming week:

  • There is no limit to the size of the building!
  • This submission is limited to 32 colors
  • Upload the image Imgur if possible. If not, use Twitter image uploader

The theme for the next Wednesday is tileset. The idea is to draw a small top-down tileset which comprises of some walls, floor and maybe even some items. I decided to put up an example image of a library from our game:

This room is 6 tiles wide and 5 tiles high. Don’t get too ambitious – something like 2×2 is perfectly enough for practicing purposes! Games like the original pokemon and Zelda – Link from the Past are great sources of inspiration for this theme.

Here are some additional rules for the coming week:

  • Size of each tile is either 16×16 or 32×32
  • This submission is limited to 16 colors
  • Upload the image Imgur if possible. If not, use Twitter image uploader
  • You can of course submit multiple drawings if you want
  • When Wednesday comes (any timezone), tweet your creation with the hashtag #pixelshit (or if you need SFW hashtag, use #pixelWeek)
  • I will resize the images to a large size when I put them up. If you want to use the original size, please let me know
