My first attempt at pixel art since about 15 years ago!

There's a lot I'd improve on if I had a little more time, but hey.

It's been a little dogfood project to exercise a little pixel editor I've been working on in my spare time (free public release planned soon).

So cute, but so lonely...

Nice job, and good use of the circular canvas!

I like this! The penguin is maybe too simple but background and that ice raft are wonderful! :)

Thanks for the comments!
Yes, definitely a mismatch in styles between the penguin and everything else... will have to practice more!

The penguin is blocky. But I like the iceberg and background.

Saporion (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 5/10/2009 20:27

Yeah, love the iceburg, but the penguin is definitely lacking...

 Nice, but I really feel the penguin pales in comparison to the rest of the picture.

Not a bad start then after 15 years ;)

Great first peice here ^^ Welcome!

EyeballKid (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/10/2009 16:23

meh ;-) I was hoping to do the whole thing in my own editor, but I've had to admit defeat and run it through gimp to add the transparency... too late in the evening here to code up transparency support and still make the deadline! Oh well... that sorts out my TODO list for the next stint of coding :-)

BG must be transparent. Get giffy from FAQ page or use

then 'edit details' (up there below art) and update the image file ...Welcome :)
