Ask Metaru...I`m certainly NOT paying for a PS3:)
Oh, give the tossed dwarf a pair of strap on wings, and it would be ok I suppose. And if you animate him as he is about to discover that dwarves are just  not meant to fly, wings or not, and I`ll give you a free pixel at least.

I'd try throwing in something like your 'mt.everest' pixelling style to kick it up a notch.
Idea is cool but this can easily be seen as copy/paste noise.
A unique style can compensate for that.
Don't really know just throwing doo-doo at the fan ; )

I'll most likely participate in this challenge. My idea is a bit larger than the allowed size, so I guess I'll have to rethink (or resize) it.

I'll post a WIP soon. All I have right now is a sketch in my notebook.

Hey M.E.taru,

That is looking awesome!
You go and animate that nice steamer!


KIND regards from

@ Jalonso:
When is iaza going to charge for their services?
Once you have succeeded in getting 1.000.000 customers??






@AdamPlays:
Music Theme?
Great idea on the animation! You might even be able to
sell it to those e-card services like
http://www.hallmark.com

@Wish04:
Nice! You brought a smile to my face!

@Club Beuker:
A different angle could do wonders to this
ship. The current perspective is a bit off.
I like the colors of the ship!

@Dutrhro:
Very interesting design! Looking forward
to your progress!


Best and Kind and all other sort of regards from

?Chris? when placing an image try to not make the link go through imageshack first. I don't know how that's done, btw.

Your pixelart there is still not pixelart. You have whats called oekaki. Zoom on wish04's pixel and notice how all the pixels are placed with precision and care. You have so much chaos pixelling going on if you didn't say comet I could just as well think squid in the deep sea. Before you say it, yes, yes, comets are the squids of celestial bodies but that's not my point. Go to google and get a comet photo and analyze it then translate it into pixels. Think 'clay' make a shape then carefully and precise 'shape and mold' it. You can do it : )

You're overly stingy with white. Embrace both sides of luminosity. It's not polygamy if you're not married. And if both of them know and don't mind it's not cheating either.

Wip:


Yes,yes,yes! I KNOW that it is too large. I wasn't paying close attention to the rules, I got too excited about the brain surge I got. I plan on doing something about the size next. The size also makes a poor composition. But still, let me know what you think. It is currently 8 colors, 5 grays, 3 reds.

Ok, seems like both Monkey and jalonso say more white. More white it is then, so I guess I'll stick with moon B then.

Hmmm... I do notice similarities, Jal. Maybe I should make my kite a different color. I'm hesitant, as this was based very loosley on an old painting I did on a clipboard once of a kite stuck in a tree. I dunno.

As for you, greenraven, do moon B. Don't dither black and white. Look at some of my black-and-white pieces if you need some guidance.

that's lazyness kid. you have 16 colors to use, from a variety over millions of colors, and you'll just use a default black/white? c'mon. you can continue on this cheap thing just to have a green ribbon, or do something to really amaze us, and of course and most importantly, to amaze yourself.

Sure I've got 16 colors to work with. But if I can make something decent with only 2, then I be able to do something even better with 16 later on.

Sounds like someone hasn't done any old skool artwork. You try a 2 color palette. It's not as easy as you think might it is. There's no AA safety net for starters.

Ha Ha M.E.taru,

You can demand, but I still don't have access to
all those wonderfull options. The only thing
I am allowed to do is to post and reply on the forum.
All that advanced stuff on pixeljoint is not allowed to M.E.

Besides, I´m a bit too busy on work and private life
at the moment to do pixels. My hero still doesn´t
walk right   .. ehh  back .. so that will get precedence
over any challenge. However I have an ´object´ that
flies so maybe in a year or two there could be
a late entry by M.E. on this subject

Interesting to see what you are going to do with the
perspective clouds!!!

@MashPotato: Nice flying cow!

@Greenraven: I vote for B. More white in the burner
                        as well as some more smoke in
                        that area.

@ooshmaster: Nice atmosphere. Bit noisy. And a
                        bit empty. The kite is kind of small
                        on the canvas.

Keep up the good work you all!


Best regards from

Because M.E. was right afterall (it needed some perspective) I kinda started all over.

 
WIP:
 
1. Started all over, new shape but same idea
2. Started shading
3. Changed some shapes etc. Still very unhappy with the back of the ship.
4. Changed the captains room with a fan.
5. Put more contrast in the pic

no ofense, but yours and mine are way too similar, But that's just a coincidense, I can't asume (and wouldn't) anything, for obvius reasons.

 I would use a reference for that ship, like I did, so I wouldn't appear to be a rought carved fliying stump, wich means work more on the actual shape and detail of the ship's hull and insides. That fan looks like a round class window rather than something spining at high speed. and i would work more on that background, the actual gradient is kinda boring.
