As some of you know, 2 weeks ago our community and the Pixel Art Discord server ran simultaneous weekly challenges to pixel each other's mascots. They have recently published their contest's results! Since not all PJers are members of both communities, we have taken the liberty to make the pieces that were submitted available to a greater audience.

You can check out all of their contest entries here!

It's once again time for our ever popular yearly April Fools Gallery challenge!

For those who do not know the rules yet, the idea is to study the PJ gallery of another pixel artist. Look at the techniques they use, the colours they pick, the subject matters they gravitate towards, etc... Then once you feel like you have a grasp of that person's style, create an image that will fool us into thinking that it's theirs.

Don't forget to mention the name of your chosen pixel artist in your description!

Previous April Fools Gallery challenges can be found here: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Unrestricted.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.



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

Anyone who has been a member here at Pixel Joint for some amount of time knows that our pixel art submission rules have not always been very clear. This has caused many misunderstandings over the years as to why certain pieces were admitted into the gallery while some other similar works were not, etc.

In an effort to reduce such problems in the future, your mod team has taken feedback received from the community over the last few months and have written an updated proposed set of rules and guidelines (call it version 2.0). Before these are made official, we wanted to share them with everyone to give you a chance to review and comment.

You can find the new proposed rules here.

We appreciate in advance any input you may have!
