Another collab project has been completed over at the PJ Discord, the street collab.

View the result here at the Wepixel gallery, under construction by Umbohr.

There are too many houses to talk about all of them, but to name a few we have the very first house of the street made by Taks:


And Gawrone's Art Gallery, winner of the Non-residentiall weekly challenge:

Non-residential Challenge

And last but certainly not least, the very last house of the street, made by Weerdmeester:


In total, the street contains 73 houses were contributed by 47 artists with an average of 1.55 houses per artist. The street ended a total of 6944 pixels long.
 
Hopefully PJ can collaborate with WePixel on more pixel collabs in the future!

(moderator note) Wowza, our last awards of 2021! Last year was full of challenges, and I don't just mean the weeklies...but it was also marked by an astonishing amount of master-class pixel art produced by Pixel Joint artists new and old. I hope as we celebrate these top 10 works from December, we also take a moment to appreciate everyone who created art last year, and contributed to keeping this community vibrant.

- Christie

Greetings! And Happy New Year!

I put together a little survey for pixel artists (and beyond) to try to get some insight on our communities. It includes things such as what software you use, when you started, what communities you use most, etc. At the end we'll release an overview of the data we've collected with everyone.

So if you have time, please take this quick google survey.

Thanks!

Over at the PJ Discord we did a collaboration using a painting as a template.

Here is the result:
 


And the painting it was based on can be found here. It is the Mariage Feast at Cana, previously attributed to Jeroen Bosch.

This year's Secret Santa is now open!

For those who have signed up to the event, you have until December 22nd to finish your gifts!

Follow these submission instructions carefully, to not spoil any surprises:

  • When you've finished your gift, first choose Submit Pixel Art from the main site and upload your gift wrap (see Gift Wrap section here) as the preview (small) image and do not upload anything else. The description should only say “secret santa” and should not include the name of the person you’re gifting, at least until Christmas Eve.
  • Note: For the Secret Santa purposes, you can upload the template gift wraps below. Still, custom wraps rock!
  • Now, send your real gift to Christoballs by PM, Discord or email. You can use imgur.com, or if you can't, you can send it to c.m.kelsall@protonmail.com. We will edit and change your pixel art submission with the real one, so we can reveal all presents at the same time. Please don't post your gift anywhere else before 24th, that would spoil the surprise.

Deep within Pine Cone Forest, the adventurous Ayla and her adoring dog Falafel often made their coolest discoveries. Until one day, deep inside the forest, Ayla and Falafel stumbled upon an ominous, steel-and-stone tower... Now Falafel is being held captive by maniacal Dr. Kobushi and his henchmen and Ayla has to save him through 100+ levels of mind boggling labyrinthine levels.

With 100% pixel art graphics by Gecimen, Dr. Kobushi's Labyrinthine Laboratory is now on Kickstarter! Be sure to check it out!

We know many of you can not see the comment boxes, this is a bug that we're trying to solve!
 
In the meanwhile, there is an easy workaround:
 
Visit https://pixeljoint.com instead of the http:// version. Here the comment/pm/description box should work fine. Good luck, and hopefully we'll get this fixed soon!

Pixelween has returned from its slumber, and it promises rewards for those who endure its horrors!

This year, you will be crafting posters of your own horror film series over the course of four consecutive weekly challenges. Each challenge will be one more part of your series, and all the posters together shall be your Pixelween entry. Call forth your darkest nightmares!

Rules:
To be eligible for the Pixelween prizes, you must submit to at least 2 of the 4 weeklies. As long as at least two of your submissions are on time, you are allowed (but not required) to submit more up until October 24, the final deadline. Having a complete set is not required to win, but the fates favor a finished franchise.
The winning posters will be chosen from all eligible entries by a jury of select PixelJoint members, perhaps with the help of some dark outsiders who for now remain in the shadows...
The weeklies also function as normal weeklies, with the usual prizes. Your success in the weeklies does not influence your chances in Pixelween judging.

Every week there will be a new theme and more colors you can use, and for every poster the canvas size will be 80x120.

Prizes:

  • 1st place will receive a printed Masters of Pixel art book volume of your choice, and a software key.
  • 2nd & 3rd place will receive a 25$ steam gift card OR one item of choice from the Lospec store, a Master of Pixel art ebook, and a software key.
  • 4th and 5th place will receive a Master of Pixel art ebook, and a software key.
  • 6th - 9th (and possibly more) place will receive a software key, see info below.

There are 3 Aseprite, 3 Pixaki, and 3 Pro Motion keys, which will be divided among the top 9 entrants. The highest placing winners get to choose first, and if a winner does not need a software license it will be moved on to the 10th place, and so on.

The winning posters shall be announced on the 31st of October.
All who participate shall earn the rare Pixelween trophy.

How to enter:

To participate, your works need to be submitted to the Pixel Joint challenges, details are in the challenge posts:

The first challenge is: The Beginning (September 27th - October 3rd)
The second challenge will run from October 4th - 10th
The third challenge will run from October 11th - 17th
The fourth challenge will run from October 18th - 24th

If you've missed out on one of the challenges you can still submit your entry to Pixel Joint, as long as at least 2 of the posters are posted as part of a weekly challenge within the deadline.

Will you terrify the judges? Will you show them something hauntingly beautiful?

Should you feel frightened on your own, the community is here for you in the challenge forum threads and in the Pixelween channel on the PJ Discord. You're welcome to share your WIPs, so that we may conquer our fears together!

You can find the results of the 2020 Pixelween here.

10th PJ-Official ISO collab, CarnISOl begins!
 
This time, the theme is decided by long term collab participants: Carnival! The idea is to combine a circus, a theme / amusement park and a zoo. But anything related goes, such as joyrides, parties, Chinese new year events or Rio carnival. The carnival has hit the town!

The collab will feature Irenaart's award winning palette, Magnifiso-19.

First 10 tiles can be picked from anywhere (but the borders), be sure to reserve yours now!

Join the collab HERE!

The 19 color palette competition for CarnISOl ends! Phew what a competition. All entries (except one but I won't tell whom) got votes from at least 3 judges, in the end most of them forcing their way into the top 3.... Excepft for Irenaart's Magnifiso-19 which got almost double the points of its closest competitor(s) - Christoballs' Biome19 and SeDiceBisonte's Coney Island, whom shared the second place with exact same points.

Thanks to each of the all-star judge team - all of whom that took their time to examine all the entrants closely: Reo, Cyangmou, Vierbit, Jeremy, Wolfenoctis, Trick17, StevenM in addition to two moderator judges, Gecimen and Hapiel.

The winning palette will be used in the upcoming iso collab CarnISOl starting.... TODAY!

The latest of Pixeljoint's traditional ISO collabs, ISOrd & ISOrcery just got complete! 27 different participants, made 98 tiles in only 4 months 24 days - which is a record hard to beat. Not to mention the final result is nothing short of amazing! Many thanks to all the participants who made this real! Special thanks to Reo who provided the palette (and made great use of it), gawrone and cjlm123 who made 15 tiles each!

Please stay tuned for the color competition for the next collab - CarnISOl! The theme which consists of amusement park, circus and zoo elements, was suggested and decided by frequent collab participants this time.

The Longest Road on Earth is out on Steam and Android/iOS! It's a monochromatic pixel art adventure published by RawFury and developed by Brainwash Gang. The game features four different wordless narratives with a collection of heartfelt songs. Pixel art has been developed by pixel artists Edu Verz and Atskaheart. Music has been made by Beicoli.

The game combines different shots, from open panoramic city views to detailed descriptive close ups. Pixel art has been the best visual approach to produce this contrast between suggestion and description by playing with different resolutions.

There has been numerous applications for image to pixel art transition but Pixel Art Workshop is developed over years by a veteran pixel artist Mbeytekin and brings numerous tools for different styles of pixelization. It's quite effective, too. You can find it on Steam.

The Johto Redrawn collaborative project is a pixel art re-imagining of the Johto region, from the Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal games, released between 1997 and 2001 on Gameboy and Gameboy Color.
The goal of the project was to redraw the entire Johto region in the contirbutors' own sprite styles, not unlike a reanimation collab.

It was started and coordinated by pixel artists audrey, Dewdneym, Foofarawr and PJ user Zaebucca!


The project has now reached a close, so you can look at the whole map on its dedicated website:

Our latest collab Planet ISO is finally complete. Gawrone has become the all time record breaker with an incredible number of 19 tiles in total!!

The new palette compo for our next ISO collab -which is medieval themed- has already begun, be sure to participate!

You can drop the name suggestions for the medieval collab here. The only rule is that it has to have ISO within the name just like our previous collabs - ISOtopes, PrehISOria and such.

Games will only be online until January 3rd, from on January 4th it will be all about pixel art again.

See you there!

Over the past 4 weeks you guys have absolutely blown us away by the amazing number of Pixelween entries and their al-round high quality! 55 entries, 84 people who participated to some extend and 226 images in total. That is insane, in the best possible way! Thank you!

How did you like the event? Would you join in if we did this next year? What would you like different? Let us know in the comments of this post.

Judging 55 entries is nearly impossible. Luckily we have an amazing team who pulled it off:

Pixelblink, the organiser of Pixelween 2005 - 2007
Prowler, the creator of the Masters of Pixel Art books
NeoBerserker, the moderator at PixelDalies
Ali Aydin, a TV director / writer (it was a storyboard compo, after all!)

PJ members: Cure, Cyangmou, DawnBringer, Mrmo_Tarius

And your moderators: Gecimen, Irena, Christoballs

With all that being said, and with real prizes to be given away, I'm sure you're excited who the winners are. So read on!

For the Firefox users here: FixelJoint is.. well.. fixed, again!
 
Improve your Pixel Joint experience by installing this addon, created by EdJr. Some layout adjustments, extra features, and a nicer comment editor which has unique smileys from various PJ members!
 
It was always working still for chrome, but those who didn't know about it, you can find the extension here:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fixeljoint/aiedmlipfjjbagfiiegfnedhmkjninnd
 
In other news, bypatryk recently made a nice script that restyles the forum and adds a global zoom button, which can be found here for Firefox and Chrome.
 
Have fun customizing your PJ experience!

Pixelween has awoken from its slumber, and it promises rewards for those who endure its horrors!

This year, you will be crafting the storyboard of your own horror film over the course of four consecutive weekly challenges. Each challenge will be one more part of your film, and all the scenes together shall be your Pixelween entry. Call forth your darkest nightmares!

Rules
To be eligible for the Pixelween prizes, you must submit to at least 2 of the 4 weeklies. As long as at least two of your submissions are on time, you are  allowed (but not required) to submit more up until October 25, the final deadline. Having a full storyboard is not required to win, but the fates favor a finished film.
The winning storyboards will be chosen from all eligible entries by a jury of select PixelJoint members, perhaps with the help of some dark attendants who for now remain in the shadows...
The weeklies also function as normal weeklies, with the usual prizes. Your success in the weeklies does not influence your chances in Pixelween judging.

Every week there will be specifications about theme and color use, and for every scene the canvas size will be 130x80.

Prizes:

  • 1st place will receive a printed Masters of Pixel art book volume of your choice, and a software key.
  • 2nd place will receive a 30$ steam gift card, a Master of Pixel art ebook, and a software key.
  • 3rd place will receive a 20$ steam gift card, a Master of Pixel art ebook, and a software key.
  • 4th and 5th place will receive a Master of Pixel art ebook, and a software key.
  • 6th - 9th (and possibly more) place will receive a software key, see info below.

There are 3 Aseprite, 3 Pyxel Edit, and 3 Pro Motion keys, which will be divided among the top 9 entrants. The highest placing winners get to choose first, and if a winner does not need a software license it will be moved on to the 10th place, and so on.

Something stirs in the bowels of Pixel Joint. Something long thought dead.

In the darkness, the faint glow of pixels glimmers.

On September 28th, these unknown pixels shall break free, spilling their horrors out into the world. Bind them, and you may be rewarded.

Do you have a perfect idea for a weekly challenge? Something that is well defined/restricted, but still open to creativity? We would love to use it!

We've made this forum thread where you can submit your idea, or comment with suggested improvements on others. There is no guarantee on if/when/how we might use it, to keep the upcoming challenges exciting and fair for everyone. But if "your" challenge takes place, you are of course welcome to take part too!

We have opened an official discord server!

Discord is a chatting service, and we have opened the server to talk about pixel art, get quick feedback, or just general chat about games, hobbies, or anything else you wish to share with fellow PJ members! Right now we are a group of 20 people, and we wish to keep it relatively small, cozy and friendly.

The server is for PixelJoint members only.

Click this link to join! We're looking forward to see you inside :)
