I spy with my pixel eye.. (Oct 27 - Nov 3)

on: October 28, 2006, 12:27:19 am
this weeks challenge provided by 8bitty.
I spy with my pixel eye, something that if you grow one, you can smell it aaaaall the time!

Your goal:
Figure out what thing has been spied. It could be anything.
When you think you have the answer, you must pixel it!
Pixeling the correct thing will stop the activity, and the secret will be revealed. The person who guesses right will be declared the winner.
Throughout the week, clues shall be given pertaining to what the thing is.
If nobody figures out the thing being spied with my little pixel eye, then the pixeled image will be revealed at the end of the week and the activity will end.

Rules:
Use a minimum of 4 colors.
Your pixeled image must not be rushed too much.

Winners:
Those who spy the secret pixel thing are invited to pixel the next secret pixel image for the next activity.
You'd be required to supply the pixel image and handful of clues to a moderator so as to set up the next activity.
Please make sure that neither the actual object or the clues are too specific or obscure.
If the invitation is declined, the offer will be open for anyone.

Whenever I used to play I spy, it was always "I spy with my little eye something beginning with 'A-Z'."
What's with these semi-specific clues from the get go?

I spy isn't a regulated game, Faceless. Everyone has their own variations.

Yes, but it would prevent people from guessing them as quickly as they are doing.

I think with a seat isn't vague enough to start of with. It should be size, color, feel if anything first.

Thing is, people are meant to put down plenty of effort into this and draw their guesses as good as they can... while not taking too long, of course, or someone else might steal their victory. When you just use words, it's a good idea to be vague to allow for hundreds of tries, but I don't think that works for artsy I spy...

Heh, a chair IS a seat, isn't it?

People, stop complaining about the clues.  Seriously, 8bitty's clue could be one of 2 things.  So if thats not too specific then I don't know what is.   

Something you grow - hair
Smell it all it- Needs to be real near id assume.

Put it together - MOUSTACHE! 

Anyway, enough of me being annoyed.  Just get guessing ;)

Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

if he didnt see seat it would relate to something you smell and something in dirt, reading the 'whole' topic before pixelin something is always an advantage.
