Pixel Art Challenge: Clean your Hard Drive

This challenge will again be 2 weeks in duration. Pick any challenge from 2007. Whether you missed a good one or started but never finished. This is your chance, no excuses :D

Make sure you list the challenge name in your entry for rule checking.

Nothing you submitted to a challenge already, only unfinished, never seen entries that were never finished.

Challenge Archive List for 2007

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

especially as there are only 3 hours left for me (*loads snowboarding-equipment into car) and i haven't put a single pixel yet =)


skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 12/25/2007 11:33

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/25/2007 10:54

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/23/2007 15:33
Atleast Naruto and KH do not rule this site.

soda (Level 10 President) @ 12/19/2007 18:27
I've already started the Retro Remake one.  Only one I'm doing.  

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/19/2007 14:47

I've got so many things to do. I love so many of the old competitions and outcomes of each.

Doing these so far

Earth Day Tribute

April Fool's Gallery Study: Larwick's bomb series

CMRYGB(or whatever it is( challenge)

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/19/2007 14:34
I am very greatful of this 2 week duration. Time flies!!

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/18/2007 20:23
Yup, agreed. a lot of people will do multiple entries and it's 2 weeks long

Number to beat 72 (It's Evolving)

Noveroth (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/18/2007 19:16
oh man finally a reason to finish the knight for the Good Vs. Evil

Acherhar (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 12/18/2007 18:33

Should be a really interesting mix.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/18/2007 15:29
Will have most entries ever.

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 12/18/2007 15:17

The good and original always overcome these things.
That which you like is not always well received.
That which you threw together is faved and raved.
Its not a PJ thing, its an art thing.
The best situation is half the peeps will like it, half won't.
Therefore 50% is great
51% amazing.

pixel on.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 12/18/2007 06:48
we have to live with that, or kill fool.

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 12/18/2007 05:49
yeah it's no secret that the bigger the piece and the longer time spent on the newest pixel art que (and then again in the weekly top que) the better it does. 

nothing to really be ticked by though, that's the will of the people.

if i have time to fill a 320x240 canvas, ill probably do that cyberpunk one....

EDIT - looking through my gallery actually, my smaller pieces do just as well.  http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/17445.htm and http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/10369.htm both got over 50 favs and top 10 places.  Still though, the pieces in my gallery that I like don't go anywhere, and the silly little things like those do.  http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/11191.htm is my only piece that I both am proud of and that did well.

OMGFossil (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 12/17/2007 23:14
it's here too and pixeljoint birthed from that hole

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/17/2007 22:29

OMGFossil (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 12/17/2007 15:30

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 12/17/2007 15:26

OMGFossil (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 12/17/2007 15:04

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/17/2007 13:57
I still have WIPs from the 1-Bit and Poke'mon Evolution challenges.. but I shant be finishing those.

I have an idea, from one I wanted to take part in but was unable.

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/17/2007 12:11
yey, i'm in.. with 5 entries =)

soda (Level 10 President) @ 12/17/2007 12:10
Wow, amazing idea. Can't wait.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/17/2007 10:29
Please don't complicate matters Kobun.

Kobun (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/17/2007 08:13

Can 2 or 3 challenges be combined?  Some of them can overlap i think.  Should the artist just list one challenge name that best fits in the entry?

Example: A "Love Machine" made with "Vista Default Colors"

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 12/17/2007 07:29
Oh, I MUST do this!

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/17/2007 07:15
you can allways do more than one if you wish

7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/17/2007 07:00
Does "any challenge" means "more than one"?

Elwin (Level 5 Sniper) @ 12/17/2007 05:53
Awesome indeed! Hmm yes, I have picked the challenge I want :D

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/17/2007 04:39
AWESOME (in capital letters :O)

I was thinking of going back on some old ones anyway :D

question: am I allowed to revamp a piece that was actually submitted for a challenge...or does it strictly have to be one that was never finished?

Jiwestone (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/17/2007 02:29
Heeey! Awesome contest, I`ve got tons of half-finished stuff, time to finish some of `em I suppose:)

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 12/17/2007 02:29
Such a brilliant idea! This sort of challenge should happen at the end of every year.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/17/2007 01:14
yaay! Just what I wanted :D
