I am making a space invaders themed 'credits' banknote, mainly because I've never done anything spaceinvaders-related, and I'd like to :D

it's about participating, not winning.
good work should inspire you, not dissuade you from entering.

Although it usually doesn't inspire, at least not for me.

I used to be like that.  Heck...I still am.

WIP: 
I'm calling this: 50 Alobesia Suns


I shouldn't even be doing this as I have too much going on this week,  such a cool challenge though.

Thanks jal.  I'm still trying to get the shape right on the 50's.


the shapes pretty good.  Just needs a few small tweaks, but mainly some AA to smooth it out.  I can post an edit I did of the 50 if you want, but I figure you can figure out how to smooth it out on your own.


Posted By: jeremy
Date Posted: 08 August 2011 at 9:38pm
@dpixel: the problem with the 50s is banding- use the second lightest grey to AA.

something from a couple of years ago \o/

This looks rather silly next to the others, but here's a WIP.

I see possible braille, but am having no luck figuring it out.
The lower two could be an "I", or the lower three an "O", but that lave the upper untranslated/able. If you rotate 180 it says "is" though. -shrug- Probably looking to much into it.

It kinda looks like arcade money.


Posted By: Lathien
Date Posted: 10 August 2011 at 5:06pm
Here's my entry:

The currency is facial hair and the denomination is Whitebeard, despite the fact that the pictured man does not technically have a beard xD


Posted By: CELS
Date Posted: 10 August 2011 at 5:27pm
Here's a more refined WIP. If someone were to help me with the horrendous circle in the middle, which is probably afflicted by all kinds of banding, jagged lines and other errors, I would be most appreciative.



EDIT: Never mind. Just read the thread rules about only posting finished WIPs. It is now in the submission queue.

My entry "The man who doesnt need money"(work in progress)


I used hindi script for numbers. Planning to change the main font as well. Any other suggestions welcomed.

Date Posted: 11 August 2011 at 1:15am
Update

I might call it done.


Posted By: Geoglatico
Date Posted: 11 August 2011 at 6:12pm
I changed the character of the note, now the character is a comic artist in Brazil, his name is Mauricio de Souza.

Any suggestions for placement, color, etc.?


Posted By: Killermachine
Date Posted: 11 August 2011 at 11:33pm
This is Great work. I have slight difficulty in reading the font beloew so maybe you can try changing that(the maroon colour of font). Rest seems great. Im betting you to be in top 3 :D


Posted By: Chibiwing
Date Posted: 12 August 2011 at 12:02am
Thank you very much. <3
 
Do you mean the ones that say CLEF or Sol Zagato?  I suppose they're both in maroon...  Any idea which color you think would look better?
 
I'm starting work on the back side of the banknote right now; I think I'll go ahead and make more CLAMP money even after the challenge is over.

Inspired by one of my fave pixel pushers, ../p/5502.htm - Krysis and his version of my avatar.
The hologram parts is failing with a 20 color limit :(

it's supposed to be fictional currency. This is a slight variant of an actual currency




Posted By: jalonso
Date Posted: 14 August 2011 at 7:55am
I have to agree that Geoglatico is not quite following the spirit of the challenge. It is a pixelling improvement for him...that's good.

An update with hologram colors unresolved >:(


http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/64395.htm - Submitted (tweaked update to ^) to challenge so I can't back down at the last minute, as I always do.
