Pixel Art Challenge: First Person Pixels


Create a mock-up screen of a first person perspective game. Just make sure it's clear that your perspective is from a first person viewpoint - so don't have your character stare directly at a wall!

Some examples are Dungeon Master, Waxworks and our own Stickman's Phantom Squad mock-up.

Canvas Size -
Max 320 (width) x 200 (height).
Colours -
Max 32.
Transparency -
Animation -

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

 Mmm... I'm curious. At which point would you say something isn't a "pixel" art, when talking about resolution ( I had a debate over this with a friend. Xp ) .

 I also proposed this challenge long ago 

Elvira and Waxworks are among my favorite games of all times!

Yup :)

The Max size is for the height too? Can I use a height smaller than 200px?

Because I want to use a 256x192 for a new entry.

Sounds like an awesome challenge. I only wish that I had the time to make one.. :(

@antymattar, I'm not quite sure what you're trying to say exactly, but all entries must be made during the week of the challenge. Next time, please read through the entirity of the restrictions before working on your entry. The challenge post isn't exactly a long read.

Kanapka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/9/2011 03:46

I'm a bit confused about antymattar's panic - the challenge description says 'max 320x200', so it means that the image can be smaller, right?

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 2/9/2011 03:39

 @Jeremy- You just don't appreciate the fact that I can time travel! Here is a piece that could go in and I had more than a week to work on it and what now? Some dumb restrictions. Nah. 

FelipeFS (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 2/9/2011 02:01

This challenge rocks.

I think I will make 2 entries.

jeremy (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 2/8/2011 19:47

How could you have started it before the challenge did? O_o

Besides, the challenge is in the restrictions.

tanuki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 2/8/2011 16:55

 I started looking for those, but you made them up. They aren't even real.  

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 2/8/2011 15:15

 What I mean is that I was ALREADY working on the damn thing when I found out how big it has to be! This is how far I got: img600.imageshack.us/img600/584/rob.png

320x200 is a good resolution. SNES games are 256x224.

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 2/8/2011 14:42

Sorry, I think you may have mistaken this website for something else. Perhaps you're looking for digitalpaintingjoint or trixeljoint or hugeoekakidrawingswithnorefinementonapixelleveljoint...

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 2/8/2011 14:27

 WTF!? ONLY 320X200!?

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 2/7/2011 23:59

asuming this counts towards FPS http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/51191.htm

Mima Larez (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/7/2011 10:37
