looks really good, but that's 50x72 and it needs to be at least 150x150.

Of course, but showing a huge empty 640x480px canvas seemed kinda silly :)

It's a lonely imp, btw- I'm drawing its wings and stuff :)

Also negative points for 'forever alone'! :)

Of course someone will do a Forever Alone piece. I just hoped it would be longer before someone mentioned it :o

But having said that though, there weren't any lolcats in the cat challenge...

Sorry I wanted to type under that image, but my browser is acting up. I need help guys, im trying to decide on a background..ill AA the leaf from there.
 
hopefully its clear that the guy is all alone outside of civilization.
 
Edit: i could scrap the leaf all together and just go with the raw image in the center. Im stuck..I really like the leaf though. and the little glowing flowers.

you did well!

Anyways, except for the fact that the scene looks awesome, I'd say the leaf thingie is kinda confusing- I only noticed it was a leaf after I read your comment :)


*edit* also here's the almost-finished imp:


The final piece will be quite bigger, but I'll keep it secret for a while! :D

Poor Canada is sad because everybody forgot about him again and no one came to his birthday party.   More people need to be writing Hetalia fanfics; I read waaaay too fast and run out of decently long stories. 
 
I'll update this post with my wips.

The inexperienced may not understand as it relates to pixelart and the whole control/precision thing.

*For example, this opens the door to a 480x480 solid black piece where the description says "One pixel at 480X" > Gets rejected > Artist whine: 'but you allowed this

(i think its a joke and not meant to be a serious entry anyway)

but still..

i think u should allow 8bitbeard's piece

if somebody will complain why his/her solid color image got rejected ( i dont think there are many such submissions anyway...) and whines about this piece getting accepted it should be enough to say, thaT this one fits the theme and is creative and original approach to this challenge, an therefore an exception...

for the same reason sometimes "li'l dudes" get accepted even stil... because theyre are original...

If it came down to it and we had to have a Mod pow-wow over it I would most likely vote yes (majority would be no) given the type of pixelling made by 8bit and the challenge details. I was just hoping that he would not put the Mods thru the process, as its quite a vast subject matter that like religion and politics has no clear resolution
