Pixel Art Challenge: Hello, my name is...


This week is a little different! I don't want you to pixel a sprite or portrait, no. I want you to put your calligraphy skills to the test.

Pixel your PJ handle with the coolest and freakiest font you can imagine. Letters made out of bone and flesh, liquid or metal parts, everything goes.

Canvas Size - 100 pixels (hight) x unrestricted (width)
Colors - Max. 12.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

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

If tomic or frost enter we've already lost

also the height thing was a good idea

also ive tried to do this many times and always failed, but im gonna try again

Animation is optional so you can still do a scroll-text :)

Mr.Hai's idea is pretty good. The restrictions have been altered.

Glad you like it! Thanks irena

Good thing I never enter challenges. My name is too long.

Oh wow.. This one is really tempting.

Hahaha, I don't remember that! That's a loooong time ago!

This is so timely, I was just thinking of doing this as a splash intro for my game project! I'm in

To solve the issue with long names, couldn't you just say max 100 pixels high, and let the width be unlimited (or simply large)?

Irenaart (Level 9 Dagon (Dagon, also Philistine mythology)) @ 4/16/2018 07:31

Wow!! This sounds pretty appealing to me. I can't resist... I have to try. Great weekly, Mandrill!!!

I'd have to agree with Eishiya I gives an unnecessary disadvantage especially to those whose PJ handle is one long word, which they cant realistically break up into two or three lines

eishiya (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/16/2018 06:13

I feel like the fixed canvas size unfairly disadvantages people with longer names, who'd have to have smaller letters to fit their name. Maybe people with more than 10 letters in their name could have some extra per-letter space, just in case they really don't want to break it up into multiple rows?

(I'm probably just inventing this issue. I've got a short name myself.)

Does anyone know of tips/tutorials on how to make a stunning text logo? I've been searching for quite a while with no success.
