I'll be fixing the wolf aswell. They're both small pixels and pretty fast :)

And thanks Jal. I still suck at volumes and anatomy though :(

I'm afraid I won't participate in this challenge, because both my oldest pixels are only small and I don't think I can remake any of them in a way that would show any progress in my skills..

yeah i got some problems and concerns with this too jal, my first pixel ever, "USBeauty" submitted here was obviously rejected and i cant even view it in anymore and the only place i saved it was on a jump drive which evidently got stolen a week ago, can i revise my 5th piece? The "Simon the mouse entry pixel?" I guess THATS what i wanna know cuz the rest previous pixels are small avvy-ish ones...

Well it's gonna be a huge challenge, but i'm confident i can improve anatomy and shading.

The difficult part is that for that peice i used an unoriginal lineart. redoing it from scratch at that size is gonna be crazy but fun :D

wish me best of luck

Pretty much the same question as l3m0n5: Do we re-submit (edit), or do we re-create (make new one, just better than the old one)?

Yeah, and um my first has already been done and re-done time and again. So I think I'll move on to the second...

edit:

Furok guardian for the win.

It'd be nice if we could redo the worst item in our gallery.
My first item is still easily my best and I couldn't better it.

Well Im not sure if I will qualify as I submitted my first pixel last night and well any improvements would simply be due to more time spent on it, but I'm reworking my first ever pixelart, which apart from the decentish linework was terrible.  Whether or not I can enter doesn't really matter to me as it's a good challenge, altho would be nice to be entered;).

It's your job to make the rules, it's our job to question them. That's how the system works, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Next thing you know people will be telling me the world is round.

Entering your own challenge is also a perk of winning.
In this case not much of a perk since we all have the same edge and it depends how lame it was to how much you improved.
anyhoo, finally she'll get legs XD

I do NOT make the rules. Challenge winners make the rules.
We, and by we I mean mostly me, only correct typos and minor things like that.
The only edits that happen are discussed with the challenge winner so that its simple to understand yet a challenge.

@all, I am just a regular member here. Yes I Mod, yes I do a lot of behind the scene stuff but please treat me and think of me as a regular PJ community member. I love pixelart, everything about it but I am not in another league or anything like that. I get a little sensitive when I am not treated like everyone.

I was speaking generically, but I get your point.

So ignore the man behind the curtain, eh?

'Regular member' and 'moderator' are somewhat of a contradiction when used together to describe any one individual. Technically you are in another league, the justice league. And by that I mean the staff.

But fine, we (at least I), won't thing of you as just another suit, cog in the machine, ivory tower bureaucrat. But rather one of us free roaming sheeple.
