Winter is finally here and people in the northern hemisphere have the chance to build a snowman in all shapes and sizes.

Two pieces of coal a top hat and a carrot are the things one usually needs to give the snowy fella a face and therefore personality.

This week, however, I want you to go a bit crazy and form a snowman's face from unusually objects! The more unfitting the better.

Canvas Size - Exactly 100x100
Colors - Max 6.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

Survey will close on Tuesday 28th of November!

Hi all, as you might have already read, Sedgemonkey is working on a brand new PJ build.

Besides fixing all of the bugs and drastically improving uptime, this also gives the opportunity to rethink our values and our features and prepare pixeljoint for the next decade.

What do you think should PJ look like? What kinds of art should be in the gallery, and what kind of functionality should it feature?

To collect your answers on both of these questions we've created a small survey . Please help us and fill it out!

It's hairy, it's old and it comes back once in a while. No, I'm not talking about Sean Connery I'm talking about moustaches!

Movember is finally here, and Hapiel wants you to pixel some amazing moustaches. Portraits are preferable but a walking and talking patch of facial hair would work just as well.

By the way, have you ever heard of the World Moustache Championships?


Canvas Size - Unrestricted

Hey everyone, I've been working on this website for the better part of the last year, and it's finally ready to be released.

The idea is to have a bunch of free, useful, online tools for people who create pixel art (and other similar art forms).
