a little inspiration to get people started


and dro man jerr:
you're impatient? this is the wrong art style for you then
can't animate? it is not required, as stated
don't wanna design the whole thing? sounds like a crappy excuse for laziness if I ever heard one
don't play sports? you don't have to play sports to draw them.

instead of spending time to post all the excuses why you're not participating, why not find a new hobby?

Wow pixelblink is a bit harsh, I hope no feelings were hurt.

This cycling table looks nice - I hope those little guys at the bottom get more work like you're saying because they seem like a nice little gem to touch up for the final. I wonder if you're the only one making?

I've only just started pixeling and haven't the interest in the challenge yet, I hope you pick a good one for next week! It'll be my first entry hopefully.

Yeah tough love is totally right, I agree with almost all of the criticism I read but I think the blatancy of most of it is like woah Joey Lawrence style.

I am really interested in doing bigger projects, but I feel like I should be starting small and getting used to things like iso and shading before I jump into something too large because I might be wasting a little bit of time with easy things during it. Who knows. I am amazed by some of the higher level posters on here and what they can do with this format.

You know, in general for this challenge I had an intimate relationship with Epic Pinball in HS trying to install it on the school computers. One time I got into the start-up options of one of them and put a password on the DOS boot thing, right - I made it my name like an idiot and later that day the teacher for comp sci came to my civics class and was like, what's the password? lol  That Enigma table was so lame but surprisingly fun to beat. My fave was Deep Sea.

Be patient. Make as big as you feel comfortable only.
In pixelart size does not matter.

Good job Jal...but you know what I just realized!

It is going to be impossible to have a 1st place winner if everyone votes for the 2 entrants. Unless this week it is set up to have a 1 vote submit button.

I'm sure there will be more than 3 entries.
You don't have to use your 3 votes too.

Nobody has a chance against skamocore anyhow.

Well, this is my attempt, I know it's probably not in the right style, and the chances of me winning this competition are slim, but I'm gonna try.



There.

By the way, I have only been doing pixel art for about 1.5 hours.
