Welcome to the real 5th April Fools Gallery challenge.

After a year's break, we've changed things around a little; this year, we're asking you to create a piece of pixel art in the style of one of PJ's featured pixel artists. So pick one of the following artists:

then create a piece based on what you've learned about their techniques, background, inspirations, etc... from reading their interview and browsing their gallery.

No list of restrictions this week; pick what restrictions are appropriate for your chosen artist. Just make sure your entry is entirely your own work and that you name the pixel artist you are attempting to emulate in your description.



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

The transfer to the new server went smoothly and we're just tying up a few loose ends...  

  • Submissions of pixel art are still being worked out right now, but they should be up soon.
  • The weekly challenge will not switch over this week so people will have time to get things posted for this Sunday.

If you encounter any other issues please post them in comments here. Thanks for putting up with the hoo-ha!

We're working on figuring out what's causing the up and down issues with PJ right now. It seems to be isolated to this site alone as other sites on this server are still able to function. Please bear with us.
