Pixelween 2021: The Beginning


icon

All weekly challenges until October 24th are part of Pixelween 2021, a contest with prizes.

You will be drawing a poster for the first movie in your very own horror franchise. Pick a name for your movie, and don't make it too complex as we'll be introducing themes for the sequels in upcoming challenges. For example a one word noun title like 'Chucky' or 'Aliens' will work great.

You are free to choose if you want to include text on your poster or not, but focus on the image either way.

In upcoming challenges you will be extending this movie franchise, so choose it wisely.

Technical requirements for this week:

Canvas Size - exactly 80 (horizontal) x 120 (vertical) pixels.
Colors - Max 4, use this palette:

Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

We're excited to hear who will be joining, let us know in the comments with an "I'm in"!


The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

The more complicated you make yours, the more creative you'll need to be, but I'm sure you'll manage either way :)

Yes indeed, fixed, thanks!


user
Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/27/2021 01:28

Expect clichee stuff. But overall these titles are there to give you creative inspiration, nothing to be afraid of.

assume that by 'prequels' you mean 'sequels'? :)

I'm in!

Any hints about the film titles? It says to keep it simple, but are longer ones okay if they can be modified while still obviously being the same franchise (e.g. The Bride of Frankenstein, The Son of Frankenstein, The Ghost of Frankenstein and so on)?
