This year's Secret Santa is now open!
For those who have signed up to the event, you have until December 22nd to finish your gifts!
Follow these submission instructions carefully, to not spoil any surprises:
Let's make a sock puppet 64x64 icon. It may look like a famous character or just have a simple, generic sock puppet appearance. If you want, you can make it resemble yourself and use it as your Pixel Joint avatar.
Colors: max 32
Canvas: exactly 64x64
Deep within Pine Cone Forest, the adventurous Ayla and her adoring dog Falafel often made their coolest discoveries. Until one day, deep inside the forest, Ayla and Falafel stumbled upon an ominous, steel-and-stone tower... Now Falafel is being held captive by maniacal Dr. Kobushi and his henchmen and Ayla has to save him through 100+ levels of mind boggling labyrinthine levels.
This week we want you to draw a monochromatic 2-frame animated scene that involves rain; using the Swamp 8-color palette below. You can make any sort of rain as long as the viewer will understand it's raining.
Colors: max 8, use the colors below
Canvas: Max 160x120 horizontal or vertical.
Animation: required, exactly 2 frames.
One of the best pixel activities of the year, Pixelation's annual Secret Santa will be held once again on Pixel Joint this year, due to circumstances (of course with permission from its previous organiser, Atnas). If you'd like to participate all you need to do is hit on this thread and type "I'm in" and note what you'd like or wouldn't like from your Santa this Christmas.
Make sure to sign up before December 6th.
Please only sign up if you are absolutely certain you can finish your gift. Have fun!
This week we want you to depict a scene/sprite with at least one part/object pillow shaded. You read it right! We want you to find a good way to use this (lack of) technique.
Bonus Challenge: Make the whole scene/sprite pillow shaded (good luck on that)
Canvas: 160x120px max.
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
