Use a better translator and use the Resources section of the forum.  While I don't know what you're talking about, I know that it is irrelevant to this topic.

Can i now there is some software through that i can get my own
pop art. I am searching this software from last many times but didn't come up with results.

Thanks in advance.

True, big challenges are somewhat annoying but at least I learned a bunch from this one. I prefer smaller canvas for weekly challenges too but that 32x32 challenge was way too small.

So what I want to say that this challenge was really useful for me but I hope that next ones will be smaller or totally free to choose the size.

though we already have two entries (it had been worse!), i'd like to express my displeasure over big-canvas challenges!

i see no point in forcing people to enter pieces with big empty areas just to fit the challenge rule. if they even enter. pixel-art is not about big brushes but about details, and this just takes time! time that weekened-warriors don't have then. so, unfinished pieces or half-assed rubbish makes up the numbers.

i've done dozens of pieces in the size of 320-by-something, mostly for demoscene graphics cometitions which contrary to the pixel-art scene are about 'resolution', not 'canvas' (e.g. 320x256 = Amiga, 320x200=MCGA etc.) but none of them was done in less than a week.

Hehe, Adam, what the hell are you talking about :P
Anyway, this challenge makes up to the face your fear challenge which I missed, so I'll see if I got time to make my vertigo piece after all.

I'm glad you clarified with "high vantage point" because I was thinking something else...

Seems pretty fun, I will enter just not now... :P

hey, i've tried something like this a few months ago, nothing beyond a few sketches though. that challenge seems to be a good reason to resume that endeavor.

still have to do something else at first.. or maybe i'll cut some corners and pixel a panda on a radio tower =P

I suck at perspective, but this challenge rocks, I will enter :D

This is a good one to practice some perspective.
