I spy with my pixel eye.. (Nov 5 - Nov 11)

on: November 06, 2006, 02:52:37 am
this weeks challenge provided by sharprm.
I spy with my pixel eye, something that is spherical!

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.

Damn. I didn't think it would be that obvious.
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

Can we PUH-LEEZE have some harder clues at first? This activity is supposed to give us an opportunity for creativity, while competing for fun about who guesses it first, right?

So please could we stick with the basic mode, for example starting by "I spy something that starts with [insert letter here]" and then gradually go into more specific clues?
I recall it was like this when the activity started but it has changed into a bad joke.

Last few weeks have been runthroughs and it's really boring.

Perhaps ironically, both 'snidely whiplash' and the Joker wear purple. :-X

I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am Darkwing Duck!


First is my own palette. The second is taken from The B.O.B.'s penguin piece, although I don't do it justice at all. (Don't kill me please)

Not really very good at all, but I just needed to get my idea across, I guess. :-\
