One of Mario's most iconic features is his mid-air pose.

You're challenged to make your own mid-air sprite. It can be for any character, animal, machine or whatnot, original or existing. Animation is allowed, but it should then be a mid air loop, not a whole jumping sequence (no landing and no take off).

Have fun finding interesting mid air moves!

Canvas: Max 96x96
Colours: Max 20
Transparency: Required
Animation: Optional

The topic of this week is Peace Propaganda Poster.

You can make it very tiny or very large but it needs to be vertical in 2:3 ratio (example resolutions: 32x48, 64x96, 100x150, 200x300). Using slogan words or entire sentences is desirable on poster design, but not mandatory. If you have an idea for conveying your message without using any words, it is probably great so go for it.

Please try to remain serious and respectful. We will try to sort out any entries which might be offensive, mocking or inappropriate in any way.

Canvas: Any resolution in 2:3 ratio (vertical)
Colours: Max 8
Transparency: No
Animation: No

Another collab project has been completed over at the PJ Discord, the street collab.

View the result here at the Wepixel gallery, under construction by Umbohr.

There are too many houses to talk about all of them, but to name a few we have the very first house of the street made by Taks:


And Gawrone's Art Gallery, winner of the Non-residentiall weekly challenge:

Non-residential Challenge

And last but certainly not least, the very last house of the street, made by Weerdmeester:


In total, the street contains 73 houses were contributed by 47 artists with an average of 1.55 houses per artist. The street ended a total of 6944 pixels long.
 
Hopefully PJ can collaborate with WePixel on more pixel collabs in the future!
