Pixelween: The Attack of ...


All weekly challenges until October 24th are part of Pixelween 2021, a contest with prizes.

You will be drawing a poster for a sequel to your first movie, and this sequel is titled: "The Attack of [...]", with the thing attacking being the subject of your previous poster.

For example, if your first movie was called "Blood", your sequel should be called "The Attack of the Blood". With some themes this will be easier than with others, so modify your theme if needed and we trust on your creativity to find a fitting solution. If you did not yet submit an entry for Pixelween round 1 you're free to pick any subject as attackers.

You can choose whether you want to include text on your poster or not, but focus on the image either way.

Technical requirements for this week:

Canvas Size - exactly 80 (horizontal) x 120 (vertical) pixels.
Colors - Max 8, use this palette:

Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

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

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that. We'll make sure to count it in pixelween judging, but do try to post entry 3 again!
Posting it here as a reminder for us:

I just tried to submit my piece but I keep getting a 500 error. I posted it on twitter under the same username and tagged you guys.

Debatable... especially in horror genre

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/6/2021 14:49

Just like the viewers of movies, sequels are always less popular

8Nephila8 (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 10/4/2021 13:52

Do you think we'll have as many joining for the second round this month?

Mrpixeldude (Level 3 Nasturtium) @ 10/4/2021 08:54

whoa this is going super slow right now

magickbird (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/4/2021 06:36

Oh, that's great news! Thank you 

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/4/2021 06:29

You're welcome to put as little or as much typography on the poster as you wish. Feel free to leave out "the attack of" in the poster text :)
(the title of the movie should remain "the attack of ..." of course)

magickbird (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/4/2021 06:17

It says I may not include any text on the poster. Does it mean that I can leave the title, but not necessarily using "The Attack of ..."

Like just "The Last Supper 2" 

Kandelen (Level 2 Wolpentinger) @ 10/4/2021 06:15

Looking forward to making "The Attack of the Palace", I'm pleasantly surprised with this plot twist.

ink (Level 5 Soldier) @ 10/4/2021 01:42

oh no, F to everyone choosing titles of things that can't attack or are concepts

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/4/2021 01:34

Oops, thanks, fixed!

Pop_3y3 (Level 2 Recycling) @ 10/4/2021 01:22

The red is #bd1f3f 

Taks (Level 5 Harbor Seal) @ 10/4/2021 01:21

Im happy that there are a lot more colors now. With my first poster, i think mine is turning into a M. Night Shyamalan movie (not the Avatar: The Last Air Bender kind lol).

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 10/4/2021 01:20

@Hapiel Thanks. It'll be easier to stick exactly to the prompts with my second series!

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/4/2021 01:10

@stickman: You can go more meta and have "the attack of 'the attack of the soft feet'" and then depict the world being attacked by VHS boxes of the first movie

Luca (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/4/2021 01:05

The attack of Egg coming right up.

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/4/2021 01:03

Place that 'the' wherever you need!

Blashed (Level 2 CGA) @ 10/4/2021 01:02

The Attack of Quiet... Attack of the Quiet? Is this acceptable? Putting "The" somewhere else? 

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/4/2021 00:50
The list of colors:
#fff6ae #ff94b3 #46c657 #bd1f3f #a36d3e #2c5b6d #222a5c #000000

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/4/2021 00:50

The attack of the attack!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/4/2021 00:47

Ahh - I already did this with ,my first entry

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 10/4/2021 00:34

Fudge as you need, we trust you and your creativity to find a fitting solution :)

b236 (Level 9 Bio Mutant) @ 10/4/2021 00:25

yay, more evil colours! :D

hmm... attack of awakening... doesn't sound right, does it?

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 10/4/2021 00:17

One of my series has a title that doesn't work grammatically, so is it permitted to fudge it a bit and use the subject of the poster (in my case the main character) as the noun?

Can't wait to try this crazy palette whatever happens!
