The Oldschool Self-Portrait pixel art challenge is complete and we have three new champions. This week's challenge awards go to the following pieces:
Thanks so much to all who took the time to vote and participate in the challenge! Check out the Oldschool Self-Portrait forum thread for more information.
Tamagotchi was introduced a quarter of a century ago. Not every "vintage" toy with LCD screen included pixel art, but this one did. This week we are going to honour that viral toy of the late 90's.
Using the provided template, pick a character, enemy, etc... from an existing, modern video game and make it fitting the 32x32 screen only. On the screen, only use the 3 LCD colors from the provided palette.
Some form of animation is required. Design the enclosure paint, buttons and logo using any other colours you like. You may not alter the shape of the toy.
Example of a finished product:
Canvas size: Exactly 64x64, use the template
Colours: Max 16 (including the 3 LCD colors and transparency)
Yes, it is an another RPG party challenge but with a twist (pun intended). This time we want you to choose an existing musical group and draw sprites of it's members.
It doesn't matter if it is a rock band, jazz group, hip-hop squad or a string quartet. You can make them into standard RPG classes (ex.: James Hetfield - Barbarian, Kirk Hammet - Wizard, Lars Urlich - Thief) or into different races (ex.: Paul McCartney - Wood Elf, John Lennon - High Elf, George Harrison - Dark Elf, Ringo Star - Dwarf), or completely made-up classes (ex.: Scary, Sporty, Baby, Ginger, Posh).
If you don't want to draw all of the members, because you want to portray only those important ones and skip the bass player, or you have chosen Slipknot, please consider a minimum number of three sprites. No single performers allowed.
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
Medical staff are constantly sharing their most incredible (anonymous) X-ray findings to our shock and amusement. This week we will pixel some. You can use an existing viral image as refference (link optional) or imagine your own. Anything counts, from top Darwin Awards and strange objects insterted into random body openings to aliens growing inside human bodies or humans growing inside alien bodies. The only limitations to your fantasy, besides canvas size and the palette, are that it needs to include some form of a skeleton or bones and there has to be something at least slightly unusual about that X-ray photo. And remember to give NSFW warning if necessary.
