You've just come back home, but have forgotten your front door key. You can hear sounds coming from inside - somebody or something unexpected is in your house. What can you see through the keyhole?

For this week's challenge, both the preview file and the detail file are part of your submission. For the preview file, you will be using the keyhole template. Think carefully about what happens outside of the keyhole in the full piece! What you see through the keyhole should be the same scene as the main file (could even be a crop), but should not fully reveal what really is going on.

Restriction: You must use the keyhole template for your preview file, and your full piece (no template, normal square canvas) will be the detail file. Both use the PICO-8 palette.

The detail file will be a 100x100 square.


Canvas size: 100x100 (for detail image)
Colours: 16, PICO-8 palette
Transparency: Only for the preview, around the keyhole template.
Animation: Optional.



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

Your colleague says there is a ghost in the grocery store... the only thing we know is that it's tall, but what does it look like?

For this challenge, your entry will have to be done in tall pixels, which means each pixel is doubled only in height, and not in width (1x2 pixels rather than 1x1 pixels in size).

You'll be using Karina's "Grocery Store Ghost" palette from the Rejected Palettes list: https://sites.google.com/view/rejected-palettes/palette-list

Rejected Palettes is a database for palettes which have not been considered good or useful, yet have creative potential.

 

Canvas size: 100x200 export size (as displayed on PJ), so 100x100 tall pixels
Colours:
Transparency: No
Animation: Optional

The Johto Redrawn collaborative project is a pixel art re-imagining of the Johto region, from the Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal games, released between 1997 and 2001 on Gameboy and Gameboy Color.
The goal of the project was to redraw the entire Johto region in the contirbutors' own sprite styles, not unlike a reanimation collab.

It was started and coordinated by pixel artists audrey, Dewdneym, Foofarawr and PJ user Zaebucca!


The project has now reached a close, so you can look at the whole map on its dedicated website:

All weekly challenges until October 24th are part of Pixelween 2021, a contest with prizes.

You will be drawing a poster for the first movie in your very own horror franchise. Pick a name for your movie, and don't make it too complex as we'll be introducing themes for the sequels in upcoming challenges. For example a one word noun title like 'Chucky' or 'Aliens' will work great.

You are free to choose if you want to include text on your poster or not, but focus on the image either way.

In upcoming challenges you will be extending this movie franchise, so choose it wisely.

Technical requirements for this week:

Canvas Size - exactly 80 (horizontal) x 120 (vertical) pixels.
Colors - Max 4, use this palette:

Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

We're excited to hear who will be joining, let us know in the comments with an "I'm in"!

This year's Secret Santa is now open!

For those who have signed up to the event, you have until December 22nd to finish your gifts!

Follow these submission instructions carefully, to not spoil any surprises:

  • When you've finished your gift, first choose Submit Pixel Art from the main site and upload your gift wrap (see Gift Wrap section here) as the preview (small) image and do not upload anything else. The description should only say “secret santa” and should not include the name of the person you’re gifting, at least until Christmas Eve.
  • Note: For the Secret Santa purposes, you can upload the template gift wraps below. Still, custom wraps rock!
  • Now, send your real gift to Christoballs by PM, Discord or email. You can use imgur.com, or if you can't, you can send it to c.m.kelsall@protonmail.com. We will edit and change your pixel art submission with the real one, so we can reveal all presents at the same time. Please don't post your gift anywhere else before 24th, that would spoil the surprise.
