@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?

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) at 1/26/2015 3:18:00 AM

Hehe, no! The bottom of a 5-line "8". 


user

I have to make my own font too. It's tough to do a readable pixel font which is very unique. 


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) at 1/26/2015 1:32:00 AM

Yeah, that's a good option. I'm thinking about simply slicing of the bottom line/pixel. 


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) at 1/26/2015 1:03:00 AM

What do you think about this?


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) at 1/26/2015 12:50:00 AM

Do you know what's hard...making a good looking "8" for a 3x4 pixel font!

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.


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) at 1/25/2015 11:09:00 AM

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
 


user
Zizka (Level 8 Marshal) at 1/25/2015 9:47:00 AM

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.

@zizka 

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. 


user
Zizka (Level 8 Marshal) at 1/25/2015 9:11:00 AM

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! 


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) at 1/24/2015 6:50:00 PM

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!


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 1/24/2015 5:43:00 PM

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.


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) at 1/24/2015 4:54:00 PM

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:
Terraria
Reddit
Deviantart
OpenGameArt


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 1/24/2015 4:09:00 PM

OK. I'll throw it on my to-do list.


user
Kosvid (Level 2 Dealer) at 1/24/2015 9:08:00 AM

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.


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 1/24/2015 8:53:00 AM

@DB, not really. No one ever thought we needed one.

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.

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.

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. 


user
CELS (Level 6 SWAT) at 1/21/2015 4:12:00 PM

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.

user
BathMaster_2000 (Level 4 Team Leader) at 1/21/2015 2:13:00 PM

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.


user
Mandrill (Level 7 General Manager) at 1/21/2015 2:03:00 PM

user
Daruda (Level 3 Enforcer) at 1/21/2015 2:01:00 PM

@ 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 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.


user
BathMaster_2000 (Level 4 Team Leader) at 1/21/2015 12:08:00 PM

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.


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 1/21/2015 12:04:00 PM

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?

BathMaster_2000 (Level 4 Team Leader) at 1/21/2015 10:18:00 AM

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!

Also, it is all done manually and depends on when the mods are online to approve pieces.


user

Some have a clear amount of yes/no votes, some are stuck in the middle and wait for some more input...


user
rklesmit (Level 1 Private) at 1/20/2015 10:14:00 AM

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.
