Secret Santa 2011

on: December 24, 2011, 03:17:17 pm
Merry Christmas, Pixelation!

Wonderful turnout this year! There are around 70 gifts. :] Unfortunately the following members did not turn in their gift, and should do so as soon as possible:

Calx, chimico, darkgamer, Elk, Fiercedeity, Gamecid, Nicko, Partack, Terley

If your name is listed above, turn in your gift as soon as possible or heads will roll! *waves sword angrily in the air* Their gifts are crossed out in the list and will lead to 404s.

For everyone else, if you're feeling Christmasy and have some extra time, feel free to make a little something for the people without a gift!

Without further ado, this year's presents!

@Kcilc: I like what you went for.  I enjoy the atmosphere of the buildings against the sunset, and the suited man reminds me of Jules off of Pulp Fiction (a movie I just recently seen).

@Indigo: I was making something different before, but I eventually realized that I was making what I was more for myself than you, so I came up with something that I hoped anybody could enjoy since you didn't specify anything specific.  It's at 2x since it doesn't work as well at 1x.

@Riva: I probably put a *tad* too much anime influence in mine, so I apologize in advance for that, but I made attempt to base the tiles on the game "Cadaver" that the Bitmap Brothers made graphics for.  You said you didn't like Isometric, but the Bitmap Brothers did such a wonderful job at iso I wanted to have *some* sort of projection so I came up with parallelograms for tiles.

@Everyone else: I enjoyed a lot of the entries here.  It's a good Christmas year for the Pixel community.

Thank you Xhunterko for the retro inpired pixels! :D

So many good pieces as usual I wish I had time to comment on them all. My fave was the one Riva made for xxmantisxx you must have spent days on that! Love all the cat pieces this year. as usual the turnout was good, I hope everyone has a very happy holiday!

This is a fantastic gift, thanks! I love it. I learned something from the more subtle approach you took to the fur/feather texture.

^___^ Rydin, thanks for the Dolphin :D

Some amazing gifts; I can't help but feel slightly emasculated :o

Some stand out pieces:

Photocopier - Nice job. pretty cool scene; also, nice job lighting the armour
A3um - Holy night! :o This is like the Hands challenge times 100 :P
Jeremy - Awesomes as usual.
Offwhite - I guess cats always land on their feet...provided that they actually land, of course. Also :-[ I cannot stop watching that gif :o
Dex - Love the atmosphere; perhaps your best piece yet?
iLKke - ALL HAIL HYPNOCAT. :y:

Also, :y: to people that made multiple gifts.

@Clovvach: I'm happy that you liked them :D <3

As you saw there were only 2 gifts not 3 I'm sorry if it got confusing. I made a tiny third one for Partack to cheer him up. Both your gifts are actually kinda WIP's the first one is only one frame from an animation that got too extensive to comlete. And portal cat thingy was really rushed and cut short. I'm gonna extend and polish the cat'n'portal animation and submit it to pixeljoint when ready. Just be a bit patient ok ^_^

@hamrwolf: That's one huge polar bear on a tiny canvas XD Thanks!!

Fantastic stuff everybody! I especially like the ones by ilkke, Jeremy, threesided, Opacus, Lackey, Inquisitor, Indigo, and of course Reo! :y:

Speaking of Reo, I absolutely love that! Probably one of the coolest gifts I've ever gotten, thank you tons, man!

@Skamocore: thank you! I really like yours as well, awesome design and colors ;D

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, etc, everyone.

Thankyou so much Jim! I am so glad I got a gift from you, I love it  :0'
:-[ I was a bit embarrassed giving you something so ugly and unfinished. It would of had a small plump santa, better anatomy and some other shtuffs in it. Alas life got the better of me and so did my lack of pixel skills. Don't worry though, by next year it will be finished!

Thanks for the secret santa(s)?

Merry Christmas!

Don't worry about it! I nearly always have big plans and too little time. That robot from last year was supposed to be fighting an octopus (:

I really like it anyway! Very original, stylish aproach! Too bad that big one didn't work out still; it looks awesome!

Great entries all around this years. Love Lackey's, Indigo's, Dex', a3um's and The Inquisitor's especially. Although all entries are great!

Merry christmas guys!

@frowntown - thank you for my ball of furry goodness :) it's much like my RL kitty with a white belly and striped tail

@mjau - I'm sorry to make you wait, for some reason my brain told me to turn in today not yesterday, I wanted to do a lot more for this :(

Thanks for the invite (sorry again I just had a mental block on the turn in date/time). It's always exciting to see what everyone else made!

I have a question... do you have any more of the first animation like in WIP form, or is the first frame just it?

Thanks by the way, your portal cat seems to be a big hit...

@mjau - I'm sorry to make you wait, for some reason my brain told me to turn in today not yesterday, I wanted to do a lot more for this :(

Ah, no worries. [edit: seen it now, posted about it on page 2 :)]

Haven't looked at everything yet, but looks like everyone did a good job, there's some great stuff here :). Merry christmas, everyone!

Wow thanks Photocopier, that looks awesome! I love the colors used!

@Lizzrd Sorry I didn't get your present submitted in time, I just sent it to Atnas. I made a mistake with the timezone difference. Hope you like it.
Don't worry saw it on PJ, I love it.


...

Oh dear just noticed darchangel's gift.
It's so pretty.  D:

Thank you so much Argyle, it's a nice colourfull mockup :P (I see my username in there!)  Is the character design original? It remembers me of something...

All the other presents were so badass, I'm kinda ashamed of mine, even tough I don't pixel in quite a few time... It gave me kind of an inspiration to start doing it more often!

Merry Christmas everyone!

EvilEye, you made an excellent call when you decided to pixel a cat.  It just so happens that I looove cats.  And it was an extra treat to get to see your workflow, so thank you very much, I love it.   :D   Oh also, the pun is genius

Kcilc, I do hope you enjoy your animated cat...

Merry Christmas everyone!  ...and I completely forgot that you could pixel your own wrapping paper, will definitely try that out next year.

EDIT:  Also, no one thanked santA!  It must be a huge pain in the ass to organize all of this, so kudos to you, Atnas.

@Clovvach: I'm happy that you liked them :D <3

As you saw there were only 2 gifts not 3 I'm sorry if it got confusing. I made a tiny third one for Partack to cheer him up. Both your gifts are actually kinda WIP's the first one is only one frame from an animation that got too extensive to comlete. And portal cat thingy was really rushed and cut short. I'm gonna extend and polish the cat'n'portal animation and submit it to pixeljoint when ready. Just be a bit patient ok ^_^

I have a question... do you have any more of the first animation like in WIP form, or is the first frame just it?

Thanks by the way, your portal cat seems to be a big hit...
it'sfirgign cute <3 <3 <3 my infatuation with cats is heightening! <3 <3 <3

I've got this...

It looks horrible I know. It's because I used the frames as WIP stages :P And I've already decided that I wasn't going to use that part :/ Anyway there are some non-digital sketches that show the story how I hoped to make it. I can scan them for you in 3-4 days (when I get home to my own apartment) if you want. <3 cats cats cats <3 XD

By the way, I tried to follow your wishes on the colours part too. So the first one has 7 colours and the second has 14 :)

I don't feel like giving out strikes cus its Christmas, so anyone who's been submitting today will get a free pass. And a mean look! >:u

Anyone who hasn't submitted anything by tomorrow will be getting a strike and not permitted to participate next year, and by new years there will be a temporary ban for the remaining people.

Yet another present from Lizzrd haha. The Christmas spirit is strong with this one!

Don't worry about it, I don't think that's bad at all. Title screen is cool, some nice work on the platforms and crystals and I also like the effect at the background of the drop. The abominable snowman is cute too. Thank you for the gift, and merry christmas! :)

Thank you so much Argyle, it's a nice colourfull mockup :P (I see my username in there!)  Is the character design original? It remembers me of something...

Original character, if anything it probably looks like the Futurama robots, what with the row of "teeth" on the bottom of his head.

Here are some of the concept sketches that led up to what eventually came together in the end.  I had no real plan as I went into this other than that your username sounded like it would translate into a robot's name :P

@Indigo: I was making something different before, but I eventually realized that I was making what I was more for myself than you, so I came up with something that I hoped anybody could enjoy since you didn't specify anything specific.  It's at 2x since it doesn't work as well at 1x.

Thanks KittenMaster for the gift!  I'm really digging those colors!

I've given everyone with missing presents a strike. Nicko, if you submit something before January 1st, you won't be banned along with everyone else. But either way you won't be able to participate next year.

I'm afraid I wont be able to make something that quickly, just ban me while you're ahead. :(

You still get the chance. You have six days to spend what could be an hour on a small thoughtful gift. The ban is only for 1-2 months, but there will be some activities in that time you might not want to miss out on.

Cheers FRAWG, the AA is neat and the colours are nice and grungey, awesome :)

Thanks for the extra gift lizard, I'll have to sort you out with something in the coming weeks!

Not a problem Maru, glad you like it, sorry for the lack of refinement on the girl and some of the outline and background :<

Merry Christmas everyone, and happy new year for the days to come!

This is a WIP of what i'm doing:

I hope you still appreciate this! i'll keep working on it.
I'd even done a sketch of my first idea, but i stopped working on it because it wasn't good enough and i was  little frustrated : /

Threesided, if I were that kid and I got those fellas visiting me for Christmas I'd be goddamn stoked. If a little terrified but only for a while.

I actually had a lot of fun just going through every one of the presents, there was some really quality stuff! Great work everyone, and merry christmas~

Ugh, I'm an asshole. Haven't been on here in a bit, and totally forgot I committed to this thread. Sorry Wes, and don't worry. I'm working on your gift now and will get it out to you within a day or two. Really embarrassed I'm messing up one of our activities here, especially when Inquisitor's gift to me is so nice looking.
So, sorry guys! I'll try to make it a good gift, at least.

After my gift is posted, I'll refrain from posting till February. I don't think we late-posters deserve an extension to avoid our bans (they're Christmas gifts!), but I'm glad to have the chance to post Wes' gift, so thanks, Atnas. =)

And Inquisitor, thanks a lot for the gift. It's amazing looking! When I asked for my gift, I never expected anything so impressive! I'll be checking out the rest of your art now too, heheh.
Some of the other gifts are great, too. I'm constantly surprised by the quality of the art around here. A lot of it looks better than 90% of the stuff that gets passed off as professional work.

I'll be starting on another gift tomorrow for one of the people left hanging, though I hope others can continue to help out too.

EDIT: Just looked through the list again (several hours after making this post) and it's about three people left (I thought it was eleven).  Not as bad as I thought.

Actually, correct me if I'm wrong but Setz and Wes are the only people who still need gifts. And jams said he was working on his for wes, so if anyone wants to top things off and make a present for Setz all will be well~

The only other person who would seem to need a gift still is FierceDeity, but he dropped out towards the beginning after sending multiple ridiculous non pixel art low quality jpgs of photoshop filtered text.

I only just managed to get my entry finished in time. Perhaps I went a bit OTT with ambition when I chose to tackle what can effectively be considered a complete RPG map/scene. How some people make their incredible game mockups in a a matter of hours I'll never know. It took me long enough to come up with a strong palette.

Thanks for the dusk, caravan scene Milleja I'm glad that Jams liked his gift. I would've added a Christmas message, but time got the better of me in the end. I only submitted on the last day. Make sure you get your own gift to Wes as soon as possible!

Though I put down gypsy caravan as part of my likes, I must confess that I was mainly hoping to have seen a steampunk styled genie. I didn't want any less experienced pixeller to have too tough a task though!

Perhaps, if someone is feeling extra Christmasy, (or New Year-sy) one of you out there would be interested in tackling such a concept?

Just sent my entry to Atnas, barely on time even by extension standards. It's not as cool as I'd hoped, but it wasn't getting any better from me. = \
Hope you like it anyway, Wes! Sorry again for being late!

Since Atnas doesn't want the board's activity level to suffer (a valid point), I'll just use January to post critiques and work on a cooler gift for Wes. This one is just a title screen, but I'd be happy if I could get enough practice in over the next month to give Wes a decent mockup.

Edit: And Happy New Year, everybody! =)

Working on a gift for you now, Setz. Dunno if I'll be able to make it decent or not, though. = \
Tried making a gift for you, Inquisitor, but it turned out like crap, hahah. The subject matter you're asking for is tricky.

Gonna try getting them both done, though. Good practice, and I'm having fun drawing what you both asked for, anyway. =D

Then I'll probably go back to a mockup for Wes, I guess!

Still trying to make a sexy witch for you, Setz, but it isn't going well at all. I had this stupid idea in my head that even though I can't draw girls on paper, I'd be able to draw one with a mouse and a tiny pixel-art-sized canvas. = =;;
So, back to anatomy studies on paper for now. Hopefully I'll be able to draw a decent witch soon...I wanna make a witch-based mockup too, now. XD
