it'd be nice, but what are you going to put in there? is it going to be more towards noobies (lots of tutorials) or pros (job ads)

please specify & explain the idea a bit more

I have the Adobe software for creating magazines if that would be useful for this.  Or just make the magazine integrated into a website.  But it would be cool as a pdf, make it Printable, with correct aspect ratio of course.

Things are still very early in the planning stages so far. I'm very glad to see so much community support, but as of yet I dont think we're ready to start allocating magazine duties!

We'll try to keep you all updated on any further official PixelJoint mag when things get a little closer!

As snader mentioned tutorials might be cool in a magazine.
I'd love to see more Pixel Art tutorials on the web that go further then the drawig of cuber, spheres and pyramids -.-'
People could send in requests for certain tutorials that a (team of) pixel artist(s) might create.
Or a certain spot where you publish sent-in questions concerning pixel art with decent replies.

Well, that's the sort of magazine that would interrest me :)
(Oh, and a mini-1337 gallery of Pixel Art, like.. monthly?)

Gee great minds must think alike.. hehe. I had an idea like that for awhile too.  Had the title: Pixel Ink. It's got sort of a double meaning. Inc as in a company or Ink as in .. oh you know  I'd definately help out if you want. I'm more inclined to write articles or write tutorials on 'cute art' rather than anything.

Can't wait to see what develops from you guys

LOL I came up with that name for a forum I was making with two friends. But then one of those friends completely overtook the forum with ideas we hadn't even discussed so it kind of went to sh*t. XD Pixel Ink. would be a good name instead of Pixel Inc. Excellent!

 

This magazine will rule, I'll help out if anyone needs me.

As far as the name of the mag goes, it's already been established as far as I know. I'm trying to leave some information unavailable to the public here so as to leave some surprises in store for the release of it. I will tell folks that we plan to release it in quarterly phases and it will contain as much information, resources, tutorials as we can muster. I can't speak for the others involved but, I am open to reviews and articles from anybody that wants to submit them. We are focusing on the quality of articles so that doesn't mean everything submitted will be accepted. Please do not begin writing anything until I can confirm what I've said though.

GBA games often have some pretty good pixel art as well, so I guess those should be reviewed too.

Hopefully you guys mean reviewing the art in the games... that's what I'd be interested in anyway.



Posted By: pixelblink
Date Posted: 09 July 2005 at 10:53pm

My vision encompasses everything and anything pixel related. This includes games, comics, tutorials, etc. We will include info about the PixelJoint site I'm sure, but it will not be focused on ourselves alone. I'd like to see this become as professional an ezine as possible in order to attract artists and companies from all over. Of course, that's MY vision of it all.

As I think I mentioned before, we probably will be open to quality articles by anybody.... but, I do stress on the 'quality'.



-------------


Posted By: Ensellitis

I think PixelJoint has pretty much become the number 1 spot for pixel art out there...  If it isn't, then it will be soon, PixelJoint is to Pixels, as Google is to the world.  =)

As for content, I think (and I know some of this has already been mentioned, but I am on a roll, so shut-up for one second will ya?!  )
  1. Featured Pixel Art/Artist
  2. Perhaps some sort of time line(s)?
  3. Reviews of pixel based games/Game Art
  4. Reviews of different art programs and their usefulness with dealing with pixel art
  5. Tutorials, maybe 3 or 4 an issue, dealing with ISO and Non-ISO.  And defiantely do a feature on dithering, god know that I need that  =).
  6. Maybe a permanent article that is always in the mag dealing with uploading and sharing your art with the world, I.e. deviantART, PixelJoint, PhotoBucket (Or whatever that is)
  7. Comics are iffy, like Sedge said, it would be hard to find pixel artists that would be willing, or even responsible enough to make sure there is enought for each issue.
That's all I could muster up for now, but believe me, I did editing for The Chronicle in Washington, and I always had stupid and sometimes good ideas flying through my head.  That's why I carry a little notebook around in my pocket, and that is why within 2 weeks, I have to buy a new one.  =)

This has probably been said.. but be sure to add in like, the best pieces of the week or something. Enough with the tutorials and reviews, let's see the almighty pixel at it's best! You guys should give out links to excellent pixel artists's portfolios and a weekly showcase of the latest pixel inspiration. 


Posted By: iSTVAN
Date Posted: 11 July 2005 at 6:18am

flaber: I do indeed remember you from pixelation. It'd be sweet for you to contribute to the mag matey.

About the games! PixelBlink has made it pretty clear that the mag shouldnt exclude any form of pixelling. I've put my hand up to take some sort of charge of the games section as I've got quite a few ties to the indy game scene.

However, I think its correct in thinking the game reviews should focus on the pixel graphics side, and should not exclusively deal with indy games, although I think it is important to make a particular focus on this area as it doesnt really get the respect it deserves. Some of the games I am interested in are coded, designed, marketed and most important to us, pixel arted all by the one person. I think its handy for the pixel art community to support the indy game industry in any way possible, a little exposure might be all they need!

Ofcourse, we should also look into the art of professional games, both recent and old, I reckon. These studies will focus mainly on the pixel art in games. I'm thinking GBA, mobile phone games, and anything else from before my time. That said, we'd like to make the section have one 'feature' game which would include a review of a game with pixel graphics, and a free download of the afore mentioned game. This would almost definately be a freeware indy game, for obvious legal reasons. Also, I'd like to think the mag would be able to open a few peoples eyes to games that they may not have known existed.

But I'm getting too detailed and too rambly. If you've got any ideas for this section, give me or anyone else working on the mag a bell!

-------------


Posted By: sedgemonkey
Date Posted: 11 July 2005 at 12:48pm

iSTVAN:  I think what you are saying is in the true spirit of the mag.  One thing that might be nice is to break down the games section into three cats...

  • Classic games (8/16 bit console and arcade gems)
  • Indy games (Flash/PC)
  • Modern games (GBA/Mobile)

Waddaya think?



Posted By: Dejital
Date Posted: 11 July 2005 at 12:50pm
Well, when you review a game, the focus of the article should be on the art; not on the game itself. 


Posted By: sedgemonkey
Date Posted: 11 July 2005 at 12:54pm
That's a tough one Dejital... sometimes (not always) the beauty of the art intertwines with the game/music.  


Posted By: pixelblink
Date Posted: 11 July 2005 at 1:05pm
Dejital: I think there should be an equal review on the whole game... including art, music, gameplay, etc. The art will be the main focus of course becuase it needs to be a pixel art based format

-------------


Posted By: PixelSnader
Date Posted: 11 July 2005 at 1:54pm

i think that a thing like a timeline shouldnt be in all mags, but only in the first one, to explain things like how it started, and how the thing evolved

allso i thinks it'd be cool to highlight pixelartists in every issue, like wolverine this one next one panda, etc. and have an interview (not a standard questionlist though, them be boring)

and about the gaming, i think that music is part of the art, but on a different level then the pixels are

and lastly, i think comics should be very doable, seeing as things like Bob 'n George and a Modest Destiny are done allmost daily

haha, well im glad youd like me aboard istvan.

With the reviews for the GBA games and possibly the mobile ones, (im not much into the mobile ones, but i know GBA) becareful when selecting them. You may think ohwow! this is a great game. but no. no it really isnt. By this I mean, alot of those artists are getting lazy out there. Instead of actually pixeling everything themselves, some games will have 3D images compressed into GBA size. I believe golden sun(s) have this, that new yoshi game (where you tilt the gameboy), madagascar, etc all have it. So when picking a game to review, make sure its fully pixeled, like *ahem* sword of mana...

I can help with reviews and commercial critisism if need be. Back at pixelation I liked to participate in those, like that sword of mana one. I was gona start my own... then it went under.

Im also willing to make you some graphics if you need, of course in mystyle... so little cartoontythings and such.

allso i thinks it'd be cool to highlight pixelartists in every issue, like wolverine this one next one panda, etc. and have an interview (not a standard questionlist though, them be boring)

...then me

but again,

gimme a call when the time comes that you wants me to help

I totally agree with iStvan: the indy industry probably does need little extra push to get those guys some much needed pr. Not to mention, alot of indy gamers do create all the graphics, and for that they certainly deserve alot of respect and if this can help give them that, then fantastic.

Of course there is always the point, as to were draw the line between game review and art review, but then surely the two work together to create a great or ar$e piece.

I have much respect for the indy game scene, and I don't see why not write about them. If it's pixelart, it's pixelart. And I think most of those projects use their own art.

I could make a comic?

And I don't think the gaming section should focus on/section off any type of game (Indie, GBA, Flash, classic, etc) but how bout just having a game review section for any type of game that uses pixel art to an extent.
Previous issue: Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (GBA)
This issue: Metal Slug 3 (Xbox)
Next issue: Cave Story (PC)
The issue after the next issue: Seiken Densetsu 3 (SNES)

I also like the idea of having a pixelartist highlit per issue.

Maybe have someone do an in-depth pixel crit from random sources. Like one issue might have a crit section on king of fighters and another issue would crit a noob's art, giving tips and advices. Then the next issue would have a crit of one of the masters' pieces from this site, then maybe another game.

A Gallery?
Maybe a gallery for one of the many collabs going on at this site? Like the hatch-a-thon or the action-figures?

I could make a comic?

so I began thinking again.

I like that idea about critizing a Newbs art, Xion.

So why not have say anyone who wants there art (probably a newb would be doing this) ripped apart in the magazine, send in there piece to someone through PM or email. Then we can select ONE, and tear apart it on that issue. Then next month repeat the same process.

ill go now and do my own thing,

Ill see what else i can come up with



Posted By: pixelblink

I totally love the idea of taking apart a newbies piece.. as long as they are cool with it. Sometimes the only way to learn is by showing the mistakes and the corrections.

preferably a couple of (rotating?) critics, that have quite varying visions, as to cover different aspects, instead of what 1 person thinks is good

Psychotic_Carp,
I had never before visited lulu dot com. I have a friend who has published a couple books there, so I assumed it was a publishing site of sorts. I did not realize it was a site where anyone could publish ANYTHING...

Being somewhat of a wannabe writer as well, I have spent the last 30 minutes just mentally stunned at the potential of this wonderful site... I wanted to say THANK YOU for even mentioning it. I read your post and laughed. I thought you were a lost one... Then I followed the link out of a curiosity and wow...

Why we aren't putting together a Pixel Book already? I do not know... crazy!

yo Random, firstly, Ensellitis had talked of doing a pixel book earlier this year... dunno where that's gone but I'm waiting to see.

Secondly, I'm not much for writing articles.. that was never really my part in this plan... but, if you're up for the task, I'd say go get a crew organized and go out and get some great stories/articles/reviews happening. Interviews are always good - I know Sedge had something lined up.

From a desgin standpoint, I think we have no problem there.. .being a site full of designers - and I've my own designs made up already.

All in all, everything is just waiting to happen and I've got so much left to finish before I fully undertake this project... but, rest assured, it will happen

Wow, I just read that and it sounds like a sweet idea. But most people keep asking the same questions. It might be a good idea to put up a very simple site that just tells people how the project is coming along, what you need help with etc and who to contact. It might save you a lot of time instead of you answering the same questions over and over in this thread.

Well, it could always have contests in it, links, reviews on pixels in games, fanart, pixel creating software ratings, stories, whole pages of pixel art(everyone loves looking at art) interviews for pixel sites/creators/professionals that work for gaming companies, events, maybe make an artical to rally people to make pixel realted things for kons(games and anime) like I know bokorotsukon is having a music video cometition this year, get people together and create a pixelated music vid for that. there can be lots of things. ^^  make a pixel comic that continues every issue......

This is all great and everything but, we really really need to have articles put together before anything happens. If anyone has any inclination to do one, feel free and send it to myself or Sedge to review.

So far only RandomBlink has offered his services to write articles. This project doesn't sound like it will get off the ground anytime soon unless we get more dedicated writers to sign up and submit something worthwhile.
