@Dumbo. No, it was a site where all assets and BGs besides the sprites we shown. Also, I can't find the NPA thread in the forum where you sometimes post. Do you know what that's called?
Hehe, no! The bottom of a 5-line "8".
Like 3x3 you mean?
I have to make my own font too. It's tough to do a readable pixel font which is very unique.
Yeah, that's a good option. I'm thinking about simply slicing of the bottom line/pixel.
What do you think about this?
Do you know what's hard...making a good looking "8" for a 3x4 pixel font!
You may not feel it, but you sure do look it.
Wow, 10 years already? I don't feel old yet, but that's pretty cray!
<3 you guys
yeah it is, Snake posts updates fairly regularly on his twitter @snakepixel
does anyone know if owlboy is still in development?
There used to be a complete Metal Slug art database with credits online and its no longer live but I do sometimes try to find it again...Anyone have that link...I always think Spriter's Resource but that's not it.
You should check out MobyGames for this kind of info. For example Metal Slug Super Vehicle 001 (the first) has listed the following people as designers (unclear if gameplay or graphics) in the credits:
Akio, Susumu, Max.D, Tomohiro, T. Okui, Kozo
lol, ok, that was totally unrelated.
Getting a hand on Metal Slug water animation would be nice too. They're so hard to find for some reason, like jal's pixel art which doesn't date back to 1998.
EDIT: Also, anyone know who exactly is the artist behind Metal Slug? Couldn't find that anywhere either. I'm hoping he has a blog.
Thank you! To both you all. I'll more ref if I'm to have more pixels in my gallery than Jal!
tomic's latest (find santa) has a great waterfall. Also dusty does water well
http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/84128.htm - fool's "Waterfall"
http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/69875.htm - Sohei's "Waterfall Background"
Someone posted a link to a bunch of animated wallpapers that were used in a game, but I can't find it. They were all variations of the same drawing, but the subtle animations were very well done. Maybe someone has the link to that album.
Any good pixel reference to PA nice looking animated water? Tag system doesn't give out much (that's a polite way of saying it's not providing anything).
A good waterfall ref would be nice/useful too. Thanks!
That is a good motivation for finding a way to allow members to upload collaboration work into the gallery. I can imagine for example the finished ISO collabs would look really great in this gallery. I'd be up for joining the discussion on how such rules/system would need to work!
All PJ collabs used to be uncontrolled and member run (which we love) but if you don't have project managers to keep an eye and motivate and promote then they tend to fail.
I was looking at older collabs and most images are not longer showing which sux.
Weekly pixel challenges.. What makes them so popular? Which non-pixel communities have weekly challenges too? Was PJ the first to get this all started? (I remember that very first challenge...)
Pixel communities with current or past weekly challenges:
OK. I'll throw it on my to-do list.
I thought of that, but I didn`t ask. :D
At the first time I visited PJ forum I saw a collab topic, and I though sort of "That`s such a cool thing, I bet there are more here", but I found only one more (honestly, I wasn`t searching for long). I though that it would be logical to place them all in a group. I was expecting them to be in top, as there are not so many of them, and all collabs get lost in loads of challenges.
It would be nice to get the full list of collabs, no matter opened or closed.
@DB, not really. No one ever thought we needed one.
Well I think I can get it just above mediocre. Ambitious I know but we'll see.
Do we have a proper and persistent listing of all the (official) PJ-collabs anywhere?
Sounds like a good way to spend an afternoon.
It`s -34° C right now. I love eating an ice cream these days and looking at people passing by.
Speaking of cold: at last, first Rosetta science papers and hi-res imagery releases!
wut did i just read.
Oh yeah! I'm sure you'd miss it a whole lot right after you just painstakingly chiseled away from an icy sarcophagus for your life with a crudely improvised poo knife...
No. You're not seeing things, you've read that correctly.
Then feel free to come on down here and take all of ours. We have snow to spare.
Yeah well, I haven't seen snow since '99. I kinda miss it.
I haven't seen snow in about a year now. The snow that we usually get is wet and basically ice. Last year, though, we had 4 snow days. That had never happened before in my life.
I'll gladly swap places with you. Not having to spend 2 hours clearing out your driveway is something I look forward to. XD
I like being cold. Down here where I live. I'm sure others will agree with me.
No it's not. XD
I've been telling myself for the last few years that I need to move to a warmer climate.
It's not even freezing yet I'm fed up with the cold and winter and stuff.
You know how they say misery loves company? How about you folks don't make me feel so alone and tell me about the crappy things going on in your lives? Come on people, lemme hear your first world problems.
Truth is I've been kind of suicidal lately and I feel I just need a bit of objectivity to put things in perspective.
You don't need an iphone.
Hello guys, how long! I went to the store to buy an iphone casasbahia 6 plus and surprised. cost R $ 4,299. with that money gives to travel to the US, stay a week and see the country, to return with 6 cases and yet, when I get Salvador buy an ice cream.
nonhumans.net/ Has any one seen this yet, art drawn by Legend of Zelda enemies?
@Carnivac: Looking forward to seeing it! And by your standards, I'm sure mediocre will be more than good enough. :)
@ AdCrusher: Thanks for the recommendation!
If anyone else can recommend pixel art games for my Android phone, that would be brilliant. How am I supposed to enjoy a game if I can't see the individual pixels?
HEY..... just because my mom isn't a man anymore, doesn't make her a easy target for jokes, greenie!
But... you can sleep with her if you want to though.
yes. it is bed time. with yo mama.
Is now a bad time to make a yo mama joke?
Are you seeing someone else?
iI'll have one done in a couple more months or so. Oh wait, you said GOOD pixel art game? Uhhh. Mine will only be mediocre. Damn.
And yeah Theme Hospital is pretty good. Played it on PC years ago and have the PS1 version on my PS3's hard drive. For some reason it used to stress me. I forget why.
I'm sowwy baby, you know I wuvs you!
All I'm going to say here is that greeniepants BETTER NOT of had the internet yesterday!!!
Ok, thank you
CELS: woah what!? I remember my dad getting an old computer off the side of the road and that game being on it... the only downside was that it was in german...
There's the chicken bandit, made by NateK, that's pretty cool. It's a western game where you ride on a chicken and shoot robots and stuff.
I don't know if it's been said already, but Origin / EA is now offering Theme Hosptal for free for a limited length of time. Truly one of the greatest games of all time, pixel art or no.
PS: I asked a while back, but didn't get any answers. If anyone can recommend a good pixel art game for my Android phone, that would be super-sweet.
I had that problem a few months ago meself.
Make sure the images you try to select are 64x64 or smaller
Is anyone else having trouble changing your avatar? I've tried the past couple days, and it never updates.
Daruda: Of course pixel art (any other art for that matter) has no purpose but to entertain us. In some people's cases (in mine too), pixel art teaches us how to discipline ourselves to finish something, even if it has no value and is not significant at all. For me it's a hobby and I'd never want to make it my job to make pixel art. Alors, it is some people's dream to make pixel art for some game, but that's not me, and it doesn't have to be for anyone.
@ BM2K: I'm happy that I could help you, actually most people give up rather fast, so It's nice to see you still work hard on it. I think that even if pixel art and art in general aren't really "useful", they open your mind and let you develop yourself and I enjoy it.
Those OPP avatars are so cool, I want one too, but I'd feel bad to work in the project just to make one for myself ...
I'm about to push some beers up to my mouth!
But... before I do that... I just wanted to thank ALL of you for the well wishing!
Record most push ups in one year: 1,500,230; Paddy Doyle (GBR), Oct 1988 - Oct 1989
That is about 4100 per day.. whaaat??

Make a WIP that's been a lot of trouble. Remember all said in the sphere thread.
Also, I'm going work on the moon now.
I see all threads. I know you worked on it I just want to make sure you learned something to take to the next pixel is all.
I think that this is all that I'm going to be able to squeeze out of this one, jalonso. If you go onto the WIP thread here at www.pixeljoint.com/forum/forum_posts.asp, you can see that I took some of what Daruda was doing when he did his interpretation of what I was trying to do. I learned a good deal from it, like putting in-between colors on the "bands" to make it blend more without needing a gazillion colors. I'm happy with it and I've learned from it. I think it's ready.
Did you learn something or did you do what other's said?
Did you learn enough from that to fix the other sphere(planet) or you need more practice and learning?
I fixed up my sphere, jal. www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/91760.htm
You... I like you. You've just gone up quite a few notches in my book.
That literally just described the most stupendously perfect dessert one could ever conjure up for me!
THE WORLD NEEDS MORE MINT!
And Hapiel, that's the Bomb-Diggity man!
No Jal, don't you dare point at me!
Aye, have a great one you little bastards! Question though, with it being Dumbo's birthday and all, whoever will supply the birthday clown?
Woah, that animation is sooo cool Hapiel!
Chocolate cake's my favorite. The decadent combination of fluffy icing combined with the spongy, moist cake makes a delicious and tasty combination. Add a nice, frigid bowl of mint chocolate chip with drizzled chocolate fudge syrup to that and you have a reeeealllly tasty birthday. Don't forget the frothy creme soda!
In between all these BD wishes, because I am proud and want to show off:
Look, my avatar is animated now! ;)
Have a great birthday you two
Happy birthday, chatterbox drunkard
Happy Birthday Dumbo amd AtskaHeart
Happy birthday dumbo!
That's me smiling happiy 'cause it's your birthday and thus the greatests day of my life.
I can't wait for the next pixelpourri! Or whatever it's called now.
Is this the bandwagon?
Re DatMuffinMan: Daruda has an anatomy thread in the WIP forum where I gave my thoughts on improving art skills. A combination of painstaking construction and loose gesture drawing (not at the same time!), is the general advice I have been taught.
Variety makes life interesting ^^.
But if you really wish to have a big head, I am sure you'd get feedback if you ask for it in the thread
did someone say something about a bandwagon?
mine doesn't really match the proportions though :/
He's not the only one with an affinity for the color Green. It's the diggity fer shizzle.
I love yellow. Makes me happy :).
But it is often so hard to work with :(..
I like it. A nice earthly color, vibrant, healthy, full of life.
Why the colour green?
Can we please talk about something fun in the chatterbox?
I need a distraction right now.
Has anyone seen a bandwagon passing by through here? Oh, nevermind, I found it.
Some pixels move faster than others because we do inspect them all. Your dog pixel (now added) was a victim of being between 2 other pixels with 'issues' >.<
To increase the tension. A fixed time would be soooo boring.
Also, it is all done manually and depends on when the mods are online to approve pieces.
Some have a clear amount of yes/no votes, some are stuck in the middle and wait for some more input...
So why does some artwork in the public queue get approved right after it is posted, while others sit there for days without approval? Just curious here.
