There's only a few days until Owlboy -a game from DPad Studios founded by PJ member Snake- is released! In this special competition, we want you to design your own Owlboy poster. While you can use character designs and locations from Owlboy, you have to pixel everything yourself, including the title.

Hello PJers!

1st December makes 10 years since one of PJ's oldest bugs, jalonso, joined Pixel Joint.

To celebrate his anniversary, we wish to surprise him with a flood of jal themed avatars this week!

 

To participate:

Create an avatar (max 64x64), in the theme of a birthday party. Cakes, the number 10, your character dancing, scarabs and other bugs, anything goes!

Use the palette of the original jal avatar + transparency: jalspalette

Optionally animate this, ideally with just 2 frames (like the other jal-atars)

 

And don't forget to use it as your avatar for the jal-atars week!

 

If you feel creative and can improve your work by bending the guidelines, feel free to do so!

 

Please don't forget to tell Lakelezz via this news item, PM or within the description of your piece, if it is okay to let Lakelezz use your piece in a collage in order to keep the memories saved : )

The collage will be posted via another news post and not be uploaded on a PJ user account.

 

Last but not least:

A big thank you from us to you jalonso, for your great work as moderator and as community member! 

 

 

(note: this isn't a weekly challenge, so don't check that box when submitting)

PJs latest isometric collaborative project is finally complete. The original theme was just 'underground' but developed a videogame sub-theme along the way...find them all!

98 tiles, 53 participants, assembled between Sept 11, 2010 and October 31, 2011. 

The final image can be seen HERE

Thanks to everyone who participated in this collab and provided so much help to others in this 32 page thread. Especially Gecimen for his 'above and beyond' vigilance and DawnBringer for the super palette that inspired so many beyond this collab.

Finally, after more than half a decade, this isometric collaborative piece has been completed. It consists of 192 50x50 tiles, all assembled between July 10 2005 and September 1 2010.

Just some of the things you can expect to see are: an oil spill, two menacing tentacled creatures, a floating desert, an anthropomorphic lighthouse and 5 euros worth of rooftop golf. What else can you find...?

Thanks to everyone who participated; the final image can be seen here.

From developer Matthew Klundt comes Sprite Something, an iPad app for creating pixel art and animations. It also creates actionscript files for the popular Flixel and FlashPunk game engines. Find out more on the terriblegames website. See a short demo video here.

This app is not reviewed by Pixeljoint but for US$2.99 it might be worth trying out.

Joe from Effect Games shows us how to recreate the classic palette color cycling using HTML5 canvas tag and JavaScript. The source code is available, along with great online examples using art by legendary LucasArts artist Mark Ferrari. It's amazing and beautiful what a great artist can accomplish with the technique.

I'm sure this will interest pixel artists and developers alike. :)

IcoFX is an image editor primarily designed for icon creation, extraction and editing. It supports png, gif and bmp file formats. One of the best features for pixel pushing is the hue shifting, trans BG options and the ability to zoom in up to 10,000% (for comparison, Photoshop can only zoom to a maximum of 3200%). Unfortunately though, it only has a maximum canvas size of 256 x 256.

The program is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7; to download and/or read further about the program click here.

Onward Kashiyama Co., an apparel maker, recreated last Tuesday one of Vincent van Gogh's self-portraits, using 2070 of the conpany's polo shirts. It comes in 24 colors, including van Gogh's favorite bluish hue. 20 staffers worked about three and a half hours long to arrange the portrait at the Marunouchi Building in Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward, and was removed Sunday. All this in honor of the new range of polo shirts with the colors of van Gogh's painting. Anyway, it recalls Pixelart, but also its derivatives like Rubiks-cube Art, or Post-it Art. Images can be found here:

Wired has a great collection of pixelart-style music videos to enjoy. Some of the vids are a few years old, but definitely worth revisiting.
