Pixel Art Challenge: ICON32768

Pearl's story challenge winner M4rsellino challenges you this week to take a new approach to making a war themed icon.
- e.g. helmet, tank, sword, trooper ...

 - Colors: 32 Max
 - Canvas: 32 x 32
 - Transparency: No
 - Animation: No

* 32(color )*32x32 = 32768

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

58 so far.

I may do another XD.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/23/2008 16:18
This is probably one of the reasons i'd preferred some kind of submission limit, but the size restrictions themselves i'm quite happy about. This is pixel art! This is the kind of resolution you guys should be able to work with well.

To be honest i think the really good submissions will stand out. Will it take longer to vote? Sure. Will it be harder to vote? Nah.

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/23/2008 11:10
I think I'll try to make one more piece for this, as it's good practice and usually I have no inspiration to do pixel art.

Broli (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/23/2008 11:05
Eh, I'm sticking with only my Kilroy picture. :S Every other competitions I've been on only allow one entry you can submit and that's what I always like to do just to make it fair. I already see pieces that I love and hope win. Good luck to everyone who enters. :)

ceddo (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/23/2008 10:43
I didn't say I wouldn't refine - with 32 x 32, there's only a certain amount of refining you can do before you're just wasting time and aren't contributing to the piece anymore.

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 7/23/2008 10:32
Agreed, the rules practically invite you to make a LOT of pieces, but its supposed to invite you to create good quality... I think its because of the canvas size combines with no animations...

Its quality not quantity!

Ndsfreak (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/23/2008 08:38
Ah. I guess I'm not used to the rules of PixelJoint challenges after entering MFGG sprite compos for a year.

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 7/22/2008 22:24
Yeah, you can do that with every challenge.

Ndsfreak (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/22/2008 18:27
Wait, we are allowed to submit multiple entries? Awesome. I never knew that.

cantdoright (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/22/2008 16:03

I only submitted two good entries I think, rest are bad.

A.B. (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/22/2008 15:42
Aaah, I submitted an entry anyways.

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 7/22/2008 14:33
I'm going for telling a story by lining up my entries side by side.

ceddo (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/22/2008 12:08
Alright boys, I'm gonna try to stuff as many (good) entries as I can in here. hahahah

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/22/2008 10:21
Oh well, the least he could have done was allow animation. =|

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 7/22/2008 09:51
Yea this challenge sucks, they could have seen all these entries coming :S noob challenge I tell ya!

Edit: And what an easy way to gain points! Probably is going to be accepted like all the other lousy entries! http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/34224.htm

A.B. (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/22/2008 05:59
I won't vote in this challenge. There'll be waaay too many entries.

cantdoright (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/21/2008 21:15
dang now I got to go edit some more }=v{ 0 <mario angry!

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/21/2008 20:49
It cant:

 - Canvas: 32 x 32

cantdoright (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/21/2008 20:48

no i think it can be smaller

purpletree (Level 6 Manager) @ 7/21/2008 20:36
umm so the the cnavas has to be 32 x 32 not smaller or bigger right?

cantdoright (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/21/2008 20:27
140 or so if it keeps going like this. Plus im make another one right now.

Cheshire (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/21/2008 20:24
I think it will be.. ermm.. 111 entries, yeah
Who want to bet?

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/21/2008 19:50

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/21/2008 19:46
I say we try to break the record, anyone remember how many knights got? (I think that beat pokemon...)

I'm really spammin' up here

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/21/2008 19:42
There's going to be a lot more than 32 entries... Look how many there are today, and its monday. How are we going to be able to vote. D:

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/21/2008 19:09
I couldn't spend 30 minutes on a 32x32.

cantdoright (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/21/2008 17:04
I dont think any one needs a week to work on a 32 x 32, but what do I know.

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/21/2008 16:54
Or spend all week on ONE icon, and blow away the competition ;D

cantdoright (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/21/2008 16:11
that might be true for me if I can get enough ideas

7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/21/2008 15:13
It's like the 7even Knights challenge, but this time the canvas size is serious.
I sense 32 entries for each person.

BlackDragon (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/21/2008 14:13
Gonna be daaaamn hard to pick just 3 for this one...  I might enter but I dunno :/

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/21/2008 14:00
I agree this is too small. Especially since we can't do animations. I might skip this one. Or I might enter just in case everyone else skips.

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 7/21/2008 11:51

ALERT! THRESHOLD ERROR: canvas to small. cannot achieve synergy for avatar use.

may cause core meltdown, continue? [Y/N]:

Elwin (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/21/2008 10:17
made a bow icon :D

Ndsfreak (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/21/2008 09:33
Dibs on a hand grenade.

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/21/2008 08:04

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/21/2008 03:35
Aaahhh...it's a shame that animation isn't allowed as the canvas size is small enough to make it do-able.

Good challange idea.

purpletree (Level 6 Manager) @ 7/21/2008 00:56
lol yeah hopefully i can submit somehitng for this~

Zephiel87 (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 7/21/2008 00:15
I am sensing 32768 entries.

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/21/2008 00:04
Ah, finally, another awesome challenge :D I wonder if this will beat 7even's challenge.
