This week we want you to draw a monochromatic 2-frame animated scene that involves rain; using the Swamp 8-color palette below. You can make any sort of rain as long as the viewer will understand it's raining.
Colors: max 8, use the colors below
Canvas: Max 160x120 horizontal or vertical.
Animation: required, exactly 2 frames.
One of the best pixel activities of the year, Pixelation's annual Secret Santa will be held once again on Pixel Joint this year, due to circumstances (of course with permission from its previous organiser, Atnas). If you'd like to participate all you need to do is hit on this thread and type "I'm in" and note what you'd like or wouldn't like from your Santa this Christmas.
Make sure to sign up before December 6th.
Please only sign up if you are absolutely certain you can finish your gift. Have fun!
This week we want you to depict a scene/sprite with at least one part/object pillow shaded. You read it right! We want you to find a good way to use this (lack of) technique.
Bonus Challenge: Make the whole scene/sprite pillow shaded (good luck on that)
Canvas: 160x120px max.
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

FINS: Pixelween 2021: Week 1
Ecruteak at night
I drew a set of pixel cards, you can find them in my gallery, and in October I got them printed on professional Casino Classic material. Before selling them all over the world I would like to hold the giveaway, so you can win one of 3 decks!
Three decks will be given to some of my followers randomly. Take part and get a chance to win one of them!
This week you have to use some kind of dithering! Do you like the mathematically perfect geometric type, do you create new stylish textures, or do you manage to mix 2 or more colors in a completely original way? You are encouraged to experiment, go wild!
The theme is dunes, some kind of dune or desert or drought landscape, optionally with characters in them. Other than that, there are few limitations, so you can apply dithering in the way you think suits best.
Colors: max 32
Canvas: Any size, but the ratio must be 1:2 or 2:1. So width is height * 2 or height / 2, for example if your height is 50px the width can be either 25px or 100px.
Please post in the comments your favorite dithered pieces from the gallery to serve as inspiration!
