I sketched up my challenge idea to work out the composition on the canvas, scanner is broke so took a picture with my phone.



The dragon and other elements will be pink. Guess I'll start now as I'm the slowest at pixelart.

This is my first challenge. (yay!) .

Are we limited to the size of the template? or can it be scaled up? Thank you.
 
EDIT: Found the answer in the comments for the post itself. Thanks anyway.

It will begin with level start, fill up with the interlocking pink tetris pieces, then put "You complete me" on the screen, and begin anew.

EDIT: Latest Version.

Done in a couple of hours on the phone with my gf, trying to lie to her saying "I still can't cope with an idea..." while actually drawing her xDD

Likewise. I've tried to get into a few dedicated "pixel-art" programs, but I always find them lacking some photoshop feature that saves me tons of time. That said, there are a lot of things about photoshop that are sub-optimal, workflow-wise (for example, the animation system is much more general, and much more awkward, than many dedicated PA editors).

Who knows. Maybe someday I'll write my own editor.

yeah, that's right, but even though I tried to use several others programs, being accustomed to photoshop's shortcut, color picking square and other little features, I really can't find myself using anything else :/
