I'd say it exactly like runnin'.

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 11/25/2014 6:16:00 PM

Wanna se some truly impressive stuff for Game Boy Color?


Adcrusher (Level 5 Captain) at 11/25/2014 5:53:00 PM

I never really hear anyone pronounce a  G at the end of the word, but it doesn't sound the same as runnin'. I guess the ing sound can't really be described with the alphebet, as the g doesn't really make the sound of any letter.  It kind of morphs with the n to make a different sound that's similar to n.

Zizka (Level 8 Guerrilla) at 11/25/2014 5:28:00 PM

I can't check the link right now, I'm on my phone (and once paid 300$ for excess traffic). 

Do you guys pronounce the "g" at the end of "running"? You're not supposed to but I'd like to know if most natives do.

Hey pjointers (?).

I've been learning a bit about Game Boy development. I want to share with you this little flappy clone I made:


It's impressive how limited the hardware is. Makes me wonder how games like Shantae or Chikyuu Kaihou Gun ZAS were made.

Daruda (Level 2 Dealer) at 11/25/2014 1:40:00 PM

@Yanrishatum Thanks, the tool work fine now. I was a bit troubled.

Does anyone happen to know of a decent program for tiling isometric tiles? (if there is one)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 11/23/2014 6:09:00 PM

This has always confused me.
Yes it will take you to the comment you are replying to anywhere on the site but on an art page where the reply is to the artist who has posted a comment too, then that sends the artist just a reply not all the dupes.
Are we saying the same thing?

For example, if I hit parent in the CB here in cure's post then the 'reply' goes to TombReaper AND cure.
If I hit parent to cure on a cure art page then you only get 1 notcie not the reply PLUS the notification default one,

cure (Level 10 Capo) at 11/23/2014 6:03:00 PM

hitting 'parent' takes you to the post that the comment is in response to.

replying to a comment on somene's art that is written by the artist of the work in question will send that artist two notifications, one to inform them of a new comment and another to inform them that someone responded to their comment.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 11/23/2014 5:25:00 PM

I am not 100% sure but if I recall that is so that when someone replies to the 'parent' the PJer does not get several comments in their inbox. 1 for the art, 1 for the reply and 1 because you always get a reply PLUS if that person faves you get another. Clicking parent should send just 1...

...almost sure but not 100%

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 11/23/2014 5:22:00 PM

It means you are too young to be on PJ and require supervision :P

*Notice the parent shows on comments by the artist whose page you're on...the 'parent'.

TombReaper (Level 3 Hatchet Man) at 11/23/2014 5:15:00 PM

Do avatars on here have to be 16x16, 32x32 and 64x64? 

Edit: Guess so, couldn't get 48x48 or 96x96 to work. I always thought it just had to be square, funny.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) at 11/20/2014 4:59:00 AM

Golden ratio, Penrose tiling, Projections?... Colors don't conform so well with strict mathematics, it has more to do with biology and physics (unless you want to discuss formal conversions/transformations in defined colorspaces...but that's far more technical than "artsy".) If you wanna go the other way and look at some mathematics/programming turned into art; here's a nice page.

king_bobston (Level 5 Soldier) at 11/20/2014 4:14:00 AM

Fractals seem like a cool theme. Find a way to give your audience LSD beforehand and play some of those colorful endless zoom-in animations.

A+ Just read that you wrote research paper, so scratch that.

Also I remember reading that M. C. Escher has had some fanboys in mathmatics, so you might want to look into that.

Besides my mouse is still clicking 2 times (I was about to buy a new one) then my HD decides to scathe (where is my folder with all my wip's and basically all my life). My friends ask me why I'm so blue this days... they would never understand. Getting back to pencil + paper. Maybe life is forcing me to start over.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 11/19/2014 7:25:00 PM

Nothing could be more math meets art than this week's Mandelbrot challenge.
Make an entry pixel using DB's palette win a ribbon then study it using these cheat cheats.

ADrawingMan (Level 8 Shodan) at 11/19/2014 6:55:00 PM



Just a thought, but the first thing that comes off the top of my head when thinking about mathematics and art is the golden ratio. That might be kind of a cliche topic when it comes to math crisscrossing over to art, but it could be fun to research and write about.

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 5 Killer Klown) at 11/19/2014 5:11:00 PM

Heyyy guys. So I have to do a reseach paper for IB Math SL this year and I have to pick a topic, preferably one based on art. I was wondering if you guys know any topics in art that make use of mathematics.

My ideas were perspective on a flat image, colors (dawnbringer i'm looking at you), and whatever else might work. I'd love if you guys would share any ideas you might have.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) at 11/19/2014 9:39:00 AM

 Kinda wierd images

king_bobston (Level 5 Soldier) at 11/18/2014 9:31:00 AM

Before or during stage 4? Imo things get hard in stage 4 in pretty much all of the main window series. Althrough, of course, some of the games are harder than others.

But with almost everything, practice makes perfect. The first time I played EoSD I think I only reached stage 3 with all continues but managed to 1cc it eventually. Watching your own replays actually help to make you realise how to do things better. Watching other players helps, too. But it's always more satisfying to work these things out yourself, imo.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 11/18/2014 6:52:00 AM

@Jeremy, I did not know this. As I recall the Big Bird tag was explained by either PB or Ens and I took their word for it. Looks like you are correct tho.

@Blackbeltdude, What jeremy explains is what you wanted answered right?

@Zizka, in commercial projects bending the rules to save time is almost always key to getting things done. Knowing and understanding how to create purely is important because that's how one knows how and where to bend the rules and one of the main reason we like being pure in the PJ gallery.

Zizka (Level 8 Guerrilla) at 11/18/2014 6:49:00 AM

 Frankly, to me, process matter. What I value from pixel art works is the tech and skill, the manual palette choice, the small scale work. If you take those factors away, all you have is mere digital art. Pixel art should have some rules in order to differentiate it from other digital drawing thechniques, that's why we call it Pixel Art. Personally, I'm not here to see how good people can draw, but how good pleople can draw pixel by pixel, and this is best shown in small size works.-Albertov

And Albertov said it all. 

Zizka (Level 8 Guerrilla) at 11/18/2014 6:37:00 AM

 *PJ is not only big, its huge in traffic and advertisers beg on a daily basis to be here. PJ gets offers to be bought or traded every week. In the art site category PJ is Top10 in the google database, Top5 in Yahoo and Top7 in Bing. That's worldwide. PJ is one of those rare sites that is even allowed in areas where other sites are not. PJ is in countries where viewers cannot even join, post or anything but look and read. In some places PJ is seen without any words at all only images. PJ holds on tight to purism for them, for aliens and for posterity.-Jalonso

That's really cool to read. 

As a beginner, I feel that automatic tools would strip me of some fundamentals I would better learn on my own. This being said, I think it's a blessing that I don't have to do PA as a job so that I would be forced to use tools in order to be productive. I would hate that. 

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 11/18/2014 5:46:00 AM

We've posted Indigo's pixel painting as news as a forum thread and is in the links page too.
It has merit and is a useful thing even if not pure it does retain a lot of control.

MrHai (Level 1 Rookie) at 11/18/2014 5:08:00 AM

There was a thread about pixel purism started by the author of that blog here on PJ back in April: http://www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=18633

Zizka (Level 8 Guerrilla) at 11/18/2014 4:06:00 AM

Good find! Wow the dithering through brush isn't very kosher to me... Let's see what the others have to say about this. 

Jal and others have said your work is pixel art. 

matriax (Level 5 Sniper) at 11/18/2014 3:29:00 AM

Hi, about my pixel-art animations are recorded from my game that is all pixel-art using 8 colors. I recorded with fraps and after in photoshop "save for web" to create the final .gif .

I get the point you are talking and well i not see nothing in the rules but if is not allowed the mods can delete it i guess or if this violate i can erase, no problem with that, i can understand it ;). I think is obvious the scene is recorded but i can add a tag or add in the comments something like "THis animations has been recorded" or similar to be more clear.


Also, i found this days ago, i don't know if was talking here, so, this can be considered pixel-art?:


Imagine i draw a painted background and apply an effect or methods that change to a pixel-art one that is not way to know that was converted. I can draw tons of textures o get hand-made textures from internet and convert to pixel-art and upload to my account...  This can be named as pixel-art? Or pixel-art is only the things we know that they are made pixel by pixel?

IMHO, pixel-art is a process where the people draws things pixel by pixel. A scene, texture or whatever can be named pixel-art even if they are not draw pixel by pixel if they meet the criteria.

P.D. Hope i explained well and you get my point, my english sucks :S

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) at 11/17/2014 7:38:00 PM

jeremy (Level 11 Special Agent) at 11/17/2014 4:33:00 PM

I think each newspost is named after a piece in the gallery, doesn't correspond to the ID or anything as far as i can tell.

for example the One Letter Short challenge post is called 'Bad Teeth', Mandlebrot is called 'No Tea emoticon'

also Pixelation's Secret Santa is up

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 11/17/2014 10:32:00 AM

Oh. I remember now. Years ago this was brought up and it turns out Sedge used Big Bird as the default icon in the CB before the option of using one's own avvy and I guess that bit of code has never been changed.

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) at 11/17/2014 9:56:00 AM

Actually, there wasn't a link that got me to Big Bird. I had to search for it via the search bar on the site.

I have a feeling that if you search my posts, any of the things that I post in chatbox will say that it was posted in "Big Bird" but Big Bird (unlike other pieces in the gallery) won't be a link. This is atleast how your comments are working for me, Jal.

It's an oddity.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 11/17/2014 8:53:00 AM

Can you post the link that got you to the Big Bird?

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) at 11/17/2014 8:47:00 AM

So I don't know what's causing this, but I saw Jal post a comment or two about file sizes on some pieces, so I decided to check out his comments to see how often he was doing this, when, etc.

Then I saw these fun little philosophical comments and I wanted to read the whole thread, but it said that these comments were all made in, "Big Bird." And it looks like it's been going on for a while, since Tomic's post there made a note of it back in 2006.

So does anyone know why this happens? :P
