Pixel Art Challenge: Ordered Pixels


Pick two words that start with consecutive letters of the English alphabet (D&E, K&J, Z&A etc...) and use those words to form the title of your challenge piece. Your image should correspond to the title; so for example, you could pick "B" & "C" as your consecutive letters and then create a "Big Crocodile" or "T" & "S" and draw "The Sun". Keep in mind that we're talking about real English words here.

Make sure to set the title of your piece to your two chosen words.

Optional Bonus Challenge: Can you do it without picking words that start with the most common starting letters - A, B, F, H, I, M, O, S, T, W?

Canvas Size - Max 67 x 89. Either horizontal or vertical.
Colors - Max 12.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

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

kid link and young zelda? kiwi landslide? athletic bobcat? whimsical xylophone? large midget? hilarious imp?

as long as this doesn't end up as a boring contest...

Thank you for the clarification. Good day.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 5/25/2010 05:55

Yup, that's why I used it as an example.

TropicalSnowcone (Level 6 GBC) @ 5/25/2010 05:51

Okay, I've a question. It states that consecutive letters must be used and the examples selected were B &C and T & S. Since S comes before T does that mean that as long as the letters are next to each other in the alphabet the title can be reversed in order?

You know I'm half tempted to do a "Bonus Challenge"



meagz (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 5/24/2010 17:38

 im going with 'fat girl' or 'feeding game'. this challenge is entertaining

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 5/24/2010 15:39

:P Tomic's 'Blank Canvas' is still winning in the crappy ideas category though.

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 5/24/2010 13:24

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 5/24/2010 06:26

:P Of course, look at the starting letters of my comment though

I guess my comment was a bit of an "Idiotic Joke" sorry :(

Manjaman (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 5/24/2010 06:15

ska : Well thanks again Did anyone understand that it was an attempt to what some call "humour" ?

TheManuz (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/24/2010 05:50

 Potato Quake? Daiquiri Earl? Gay Hailstorm?

I don't think i will partecipate (lack of time), so feel free to use these ideas if you want.

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/24/2010 05:41
