Check out this video of  someone creating pixel art using only HTML tables. Could you possibly make it more complicated? Even MSPaint is more efficient.

This is just crazy.

Using only 1 color of your choice on a 1 color background create a pixel which suggests depth and volume.

  • 2 color palette of your choice.
  • No transparency.
  • The pixel canvas is not restricted.
  • Nothing remotely close to Oekaki allowed, pixel placement accuracy is a must.

Another artist started a kind of community collab. He offers an image and asks his page visitors to place one of the 197138 pixels. Kind of cool: The palette is limited to 16 colors. Whatever is going to grow there, it will probably take some time. Maybe it will develop faster if you help.

I know it's getting a bit late for The Joint's weekly challenge run, but I have to mention this because I just sent back the third entry that wasn't the right size:  YOU HAVE TO USE THE TEMPLATE FOR THE JOINT ROOM.  This means you have to work within the boundaries of the walls and floor and not change the width or height of the template graphic.

If American teenagers during the Cold War ever stopped to consider how their Eastern bloc counterparts spent the weekend, they probably imagined dreary groups of Red Youth robotically singing hymns to Soviet wheat production and discussing the glories of socialist brotherhood from Hanoi to Havana.

They likely would have been surprised to know that in movie theaters, train stations and recreation centers across the U.S.S.R., packs of Soviet youth huddled around upright video games with coins lined up along the edge of the screen, same as at any mall in Jersey.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) announced today that the Star Wars character Yoda will be featured on a single stamp to be issued later this summer.

The Jedi Master received the most votes in a 2-month-long online poll the USPS held asking Americans to choose which image from their commemorative Star Wars 15-stamp sheet, which was unveiled on March 28, 2007, should be selected to appear on its own stamp.

This week's challenge is isometric. Use the Joint room template to create a fantasy room. Must be transparent BG for Joint inclusion. The only real restriction is the scale of the Joint and your imagination.  Just stay inside of the template, and you'll be fine.

Visit the Joint if you need to see how things work.

   I guess it's true what they say; Pretty soon, everything will have to be switched to HIgh-Def. And when I say everything, I mean it. Even the world's first successful fighting game franchise. That's right, nerds. All you Street Fighter fanboys wake up and rejoice! Capcom, along with it's Udon comics partner, have apparently been working on a new Street Fighter game. The sprites for the old Street Fighter 2 games will be completely redrawn and remastered in high def, and presented in high res up to 1080 pi. I'm excited to see what eye candy Udon artists can provide us Street Fighter whores, to keep up company until official word leaks out, of a new Street Fighter 4!(we can only hope...)

Pleo is an authentic Life Form. Treat him gently like any other living thing. Pleo will let you know how he feels at any moment. That's because he is capable of actual emotions including joy, aggression, sorrow, and fear. He can also yawn, sigh, sniff, sniffle, snore, cough, hiccup, and sneeze.

A pet that doesn't poop on your floor.
