I made this like 10 months ago. It was my very first attempt to create a pixel-art piece, actually. It's full of cheats like transparencies for the shadow of the house and multiple-pixel-brushes for the sand, but that was only because I didn't really know what "shading" is, back then... Now I do and I try to improve my stuff by not cheating anymore. I'm not sure if this piece is going to be approved by the administrators due to the reasons I mentioned above, but I decidet to submit it anyway.

Oh man, this is so fun to look at. The animation on the jellyfish is beautiful.

Ameki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 8/3/2008 03:34
Aha, well I never really watched spongebob becuase his voice in Swedish is very annoying XD

Thank you all once again for commenting on my works. And also for adding my stuff to your favorites!

PixEd, you're absolutely right. Should I decide to redo it, I'll probably cut the colors in half.

Metaru, I'm not sure I understood what you meant. Yes, the sand is "shaded" with multi-pixel brush. I know that's wrong now, but by the time I was working on this piece, I had absolutely no idea which one is the proper way to shade things in Pixel Art...

Ameki, the snail is indeed clacking his eyes together, as Rynen10K said. It's part of one SpongeBob episode's plot. The one where he's attacked by a flock of jellyfishes and uses Gary to hypnotize them so he can get away...

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 8/2/2008 19:36
you could call me jealous if you wish, but knowing that the sand is shaded in a "wrong/dirty" way and not doing anything about it... i would be more credible. because i see veryone was trapped by the animation of the jellyfishes.

Rynen10K (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/2/2008 18:41
 I think he's clacking his eyes together...

Ameki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 8/2/2008 12:14
What is the snail doing?

PixEd (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/2/2008 04:16
if you redid the shading of the pineapple and the sand you would probably get rid of about 70 unnecessary colours.

it's a nice piece though

Skink (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/31/2008 14:14
I love the shading on Spongebob's house

Balamoot (Level 10 Maniac) @ 7/29/2008 08:52
Nice, nice, nice! I don't like the cartoon, but the piece is great! ))

arcade_monster (Level 1 Seaman) @ 7/29/2008 04:29
Yes, the main reason for this high color count is the transparency. As I said in the description, there could have been lesser colors if I knew how to "shade" back then...

But still, thank you all very much for your encouraging comments and suggestions! Your feedback is highly appreciated!

withalligators (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/28/2008 20:14
really?  110 colors? doesn't seem like it.  Is that from creating a ton of colors just one or two points off by using transparencies?

Folk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/28/2008 14:03
i just love the way this pink things move!

Pixelarg (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/28/2008 13:26

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/28/2008 06:18

KwIjL (Level 5 Captain) @ 7/28/2008 02:00

Sponiller (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/28/2008 01:34

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 7/28/2008 00:09
that's one smooth animation you got there.

Yellow Snow (Level 1 Private) @ 7/27/2008 21:14
:o stray pixel! bottom right. ! Spongebob sparepants!

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/27/2008 20:10
sponge bob iso!!  Good stuff!  The animations are smooth!

taquito143 (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/27/2008 17:02
I think that the animation in the eyes of Gary is very fast, reducing its speed comes with a little

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/27/2008 12:03
110 colors is a bit much. But spongebob rawks and this looks pretty cool.
