Hahaha that's fantastic Pawige! Naked woman fighting squid = instant win.
Thanks alot man!

Seems like I'm not the only one who got an awesome gift though.

Jad: That's really, really cool.

Elk: That is just downright scary.

Vierbit: That's Awesome.

Indigo: Sheesh man!

Junkboy: More awesome.

Just some amazing stuff here.

If I'd had a bit more time I'd have put some more effort in mine. But my partner not having made anything at all makes me feel slightly less of an ass :P

Alkaline - many thanks, I love it. Especially the staff with the little snow globe on the top - nice touch!

I managed to receive and open it just before the end of Christmas day so at least I got one present to actually open this year which was a really nice little bonus at the end of the day. :)


A lot of great gifts and a lot of fantastic work. A couple of fantastic game mockups in there, and some great animation. Congrats all who particpated.

圣诞快乐大家!

Zccc: Hahah, this is so cool! The banana war scene is silly and awesome. I am very uncertain how a banana will fight against tanks and bomber planes, but it makes me laugh. The other one looks like a powerup from a game, pretty cute animation, and the face is hilarious. Good work!

Also, wow, there are a lot of great pieces this year! I have to give props to The B.O.B., Jad, Mush, Doppleganger, Vierbit, Indigo, Dex, Akira, Reo, darchangel, Joe, alkaline, and oh man there are too many I feel bad for leaving people out here, so many cool pieces :D. Overall, everyone has done awesome. :)

This was intended for Maru as a surprise-nonobligational-gift because time has been tight lately and after going through the list her likes were the only one I felt I could make anything of. I don't know if you're allowing this sort of thing this year, however. It was supposed to be a continuous animation of a guard walking by, getting killed and shoved in a locker... but the sprites ended up being too much, but I figure I shouldn't let it go to waste!


Happy Holidays everyone!

Quake, glad you liked it.  I really struggled to try and do something based on the stuff in your likes list none of which I'm that familiar with even after trying to research so I figured just go with something christmassy and get it done.  Am happy it did the trick.

Radiation, thanks for my gift.  Looks like ya packed several of my fave things in there like Sackboy, Supes and the TARDIS.  Good stuff :)

Nice work overall from everyone.

Too awsome!   :o *stares and keeps finding new bits of the image*

Thankyou Jeremy i love it! :D


EDIT: On my gift i'm sorry it wasn't animated like you asked but i'd never animated anything before and spent much time trying too only for it to not work... D: So it may end up being animated later. Maybe.

All these are absolutely amazing they are all really dynamic and fun to look at!

... then there is the one I gave. Sorry Elk. :(

I loved mine overkill, made me smile and feel really good. For me that's pretty rare. Thanks a heap!


(Looks lie when I get back from work I'll move my creation to pixel art and hopefully improve it big time, sorry again)

I made the palette the day I got your name (I tried to make it as wacky as possible), then the day after I decided what I was actually going to make :P

Thank you Larwick, that is an awesome crossover right there :)

And glad you like it Skamocore, I think I spent more time figuring out how to do it rather than the pixel work, but I don't think that matters too much.
Merry Xmas everyone, hope you all have/had a great time with your friends and family.

hahaha, thats so awesome Rydin.  Thanks so much.  You pretty much nailed everything i listed :)

I was scared that I went too heavy on symbolism and that the art itself suffered because of it.  There's lots to find if you look hard enough.

First, thank you very much, Sherman Gill. I really enjoy your gift. In my opinion, the creator can try as hard as he wants, there's no way he can make an epic picture - the picture is made epic by the viewer. And that's definately the case with your picture. Thanks a lot for making a picture I can enjoy so much!
I spot Lady Eboshi, San, Nausicaa and her Mehve and Howl. And in the clouds I interpret Castle in the Sky and in the bottom I see shapes from Ponyo - even if it maybe wasn't intented.

Then congratulation to everybody who contributed this year, I enjoyed looking through all these gifts. I see some which put some real effort into it, thank you very much.

Mush, maybe I have to explain my gift a bit. I saw a series about Shinto, and I thought that every gift you make has it's own spirit, even if you can't see them. Here I wanted to depict the spirits of the things you wished, red and yellow metal spirits, jelly spirit and chicken spirit (with leaf on it's head). The jetpack spirit is not yet there, always late. The spirit of the big-thick guns is already hiding in the box, because it's so shy. All over the world they use the guns to commit crimes, so the humans detest this spirit - but that's how the world is. They detest other spirits too, the poverty god for example, but they forget that we live in a world of contradictions, the one thing would not exist if there would be no counterpart, no joy without pain. So there it hides itself from the view of the world, but it's still there.
The text says "present spirits" which means, these are the spirits of presents/gifts and the are there/present even if we don't see them. - I hope you enjoy it.

Perkele, huZba! You really nailed it. Love the combination of themes, the dot-matrix display and how the table lights up. It's all so very seasonal somehow. Thanks a bunch!

Oh, and lot's of other cool shit this year again. ilkke's, vierbit's, indigo's, rikfuzz' and 8bitty's gifts, to name a few. You'd think all this pixel goodnes would open up a portal to the 1980s or something.

Thanks so much, Mush!  Now we have to go make that game, it looks like it could be something that could be a platformer for some levels, an over the shoulder collection/flying level for another, and a stealth espionage classic to boot.


And I'm glad you liked it, Ryumaru!  I appreciated getting you for Secret Santa as it was subject matter I never would of thought I would tackle (much less combine) and ended up learning a lot along the way.  Wound up sketching what I was going to do the very first night when names were drawn and it came together faster and less deadline pushing than anything else I've ever done so it was sort of a milestone for me  :y:
Thanks Mush, adcrusher524, Ego, and iLKke!

Very awesome stuff this year! It always astonishes me how the Secret Santa Event creates an influx of amazingly creative and quality pixel art. Not that it should be surprising, but the sheer amount of it is what gets me.

While there are tons of great pieces this year, my absolute fav has got to be Eyecraft's for Conceit. It's super class on so many levels. Honorable mentions go to the B.O.B, Junkboy, Indigo, Vierbit, and Jad. Really great pieces, too! And of course everyone else. There wasn't a single piece that didn't impress me.
