I've built a tool that allows you to browse the Pixel Joint gallery by searching for colors. It's online and free, go play with it!
Here is also a video demonstration of how you might use it.
I hope you like it!
Special thanks to all the many PJers who helped test this during the creation.
Our current collab Planet ISO has only 4 tiles to go out of 98. Be sure to grab those last tiles before it runs out. However its ending also heralds the new palette compo for the new collab, which is soooooon!
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
The level challenge is back with its 5th installment! We've done the desert, we've done the jungle, now it's time to make the most creepy of them all - the dungeon. This week, we want you to design a mock-up of a new, original video game showing a dungeon, catacombs, sewers or tombs level. For this particular game you are restricted to 11specific colours, these colours are shown below.
Canvas size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Max 11. Must use only the colours from the palette below:
Animation - Optional.
Transparency - No.
The following pixel artists produced Pixel Joint's top rated pixel art for December 2020.
Many thanks go out to this month's top pixel artists, and all the members who took time to rate!
Lospec (most known for their pixel art palettes database) has launched a kickstarter to fund an online gallery!
The gallery will let people share pixel art, chiptune, voxel art, low-poly, textmode and more! Our goal is to make the website as easy to use as possible, and display low-spec art without compression or scaling!
Learn more on our campaign page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/skeddles/lospec-gallery
The pantone colors of the year 2021 are Ultimate Grey and Illuminating (yellow).
You are challenged to use these great colors for a great design. A design of your own designer furniture! A chair, table, shelf, couch, or even home accessories such as a lamp or a plant pot are welcome.
Because I'm feeling generous, you get to use 2 more colors of your choice, and the 2 from pantone:
Bonus challenge: Make the furniture really impractical. What's better than a designer chair you can't sit on?
Canvas size: Max 160x160 (smaller is fine)
Colours: 4, or 5 if you use transparency. 2 colors from the palette, and 2 free choice.
Don't forget to comment on the pieces you like!
Not only does a comment have the potential to make the artist's day, if you post a lot you'll win one of the fancy new trophies
And December's most favourited award goes to:
Happy new year!
To celebrate the new year, we'll host boardgame sessions over at the PJ Discord. Come meet your fellow PJers and join us for a quick game of connect-4, chess, uno, or one of the many other games in our library!
Games will only be online until January 3rd, from on January 4th it will be all about pixel art again.
See you there!
