Submit Your Pixel Art & Pixel Tutorials For A Chance To Be Featured In An Online Magazine

An upcoming free online magazine, The Art of Gaming, is looking for Pixel Art & Pixel Tutorials to be featured in their monthly issues. The first issue of the magazine debuts on Friday, June 16th, so be sure to go to and click on Pixel Me Silly from the side menu to learn more about to submitting your artworks.

What is The Art of Gaming? It's an online magazine series that discusses art in video games. We're not just talking about great graphics or the best framerate - this is about the game that had the amazing backgrounds, or the game that had great character design. Whether it's in 8-bit or Polygons, we'll be looking at games that spoke visually regardless of gameplay. Also featured are illustrations by you, the gamers - as well as your comments.

Hi guys, I'm the editor of the magazine. First off, if you go to the "Pixel Me Silly" section, that is specifically for Pixel Art submissions, in which we reference the PNG only. I used to do pixel art myself so of course JPG wouldn't acceptable to display pixel art. Also the magazine is published in a PDF format, so any animated art will of course, not animate.

The "Submissions" area where it DOES specify JPG & PNG are for general art only (like handdrawn illustrations, etc). Hope that clears up any confusion!

@Btg:  I need to get your tutorial signed, framed and hung on my wall. Brilliant.

Wait. It says png.

Sounds really cool. Metal Slug ftw.

jpg? That's odd though.  And animations would be good surely.

It does but they ask for .jpg files? I hope they understand the basics :/
