Missing headphones, but that's the general idea.

Still missing the headphones.

Some years ago I read that mice can sing, we just can't hear them with the unassisted ear, and ever since then I've thought that was the coolest thing ever. We sit in the midst of silent music all the time and never even realize it--soooo awesome. Also I then adopted the name Mousesong on almost every site I use, so yeah.

It's still a bit messy but mostly done I think. Any advice/critique? *begs*

This was fun :D I wanna do something involving whales next.

I'm liking how this is going.



Obviously no where near completion, but it's a start for tonight.

Giving this challenge a try. Hope I can get it done in time!

So, here's a rough draft. The lines in the background need to be cleaned up:



Next step: shading

I always listen to music to do what I do in pixel art. This time: YoninBayashi, a japanese progressive band.

Inphy I am really interested to see yours finished--that pop of neon green is interesting against the slate grey and I suddenly have an itchy urge to make a painting in that sort of scheme. V. industrial :D

Krigorn, that's beautiful... it took me a minute to see the "listening" aspect. I am so jealous. D: Palette is lovely.

Manupix: I'm glad you like it but I don't foresee any non-green ribbon from this one... there's already been a ton of really good entries in progress and there's a couple already submitted that I've slobbered over for a while. Voting this week is going to be hard, again. This was a fun challenge. Lots of room for improvisation but still restrictive enough to be truly challenging.

The person hears the music of nature : we see some clouds (the sound of wind, birds, etc...) and high mountains (representing the earth, the sounds of it, etc...) down.

And the character whistles. Because human is a natural element before all.

First submission to PixelJoint;

I'm rather happy with it.  Not perfect, but as close as I'm gonna get, given my limited talent and experience.
