ABOUT

The goal is to use the little bits of what you see from the finished adjacent tiles as a starting point for your tile.
I then will put a masked version of the tile into the field.

This time we're making it animated!  To make things not completely overwhelming, we're using a smaller 8 color palette and only 4 frames of animation.  If this goes well, then we might try more frames and colors in the future.  Special thanks to Arcade Hero for getting this started!

Reminder you can claim multiple tiles, just none that neighbor one of your own!
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4
Post by: Polyducks on April 02, 2019, 10:32:48 am
Looking at what has been produced so far, is it possible to show the whole tile? Due to the nature of animating in four frames, some of the content is difficult to understand how to link to it.

@MysteryMeat It's unclaimed because it went expired.  But I'll give an exception.

Edit: T49 DONE



Is this activity open to all skill levels?

I'd like to participate but fear that my entry would not live up to the standards other artists bring to the collab.

If I may partake, I'd like to work on tile T49.

Thanks

putting a claim in on t-89, I'm gonna try to get something done on this for real.

tile 89 isn't available.  I'm assuming you meant 88?

Nice to see new tiles being added! Keep it up, pals!
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4
Post by: ptoing on June 08, 2019, 03:25:31 pm
I know some tiles are "done" already, but I think every side that is adjacent to another tile should be animated.
In cases where this is not the case and the sides are not neighboring anything yet they should be edited.

Worst case here is Grossly Incandescent's tile, which does not really have any animation that goes beyond the edge. Just the 2 cents of an old fart.   :y::)

Looking good so far, maybe I can join in later as well (late July)

Hey guys, there is one (probably 2) complete tile(s) for nearly a month and they haven't been added yet.
You can't leave a collab unmoderated for a month and expect people to participate, just sayin'.

T16  Please

If this is still going on lol.

@Gecimen, you're right.  I've gotten extremely busy at work.  I'll look for someone else to moderate this activity since I'm falling behind.

if anyone wants to volunteer, let me know.

never received your tile @haddy
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4
Post by: Gecimen on July 26, 2019, 05:22:48 pm
I'm already moderating PJ collabs so I could do it unless it requires some coding skills.
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4
Post by: JinnDEvil on July 27, 2019, 10:02:52 pm
Also, maybe mixing the available tiles would give more room for ideas.

I'm saying because I do have some ideas, but the tiles aren't available at the moment, so I'm just waiting until they're free.

looks like my 1st post was hidden?(i drew a design for T2 a few months back, although I guess I forgot to introduce myself, so my account was not yet approved.)

...anyway, now it is Done!(i think)

...it was a bit of a learning experience for me, but i think it turned out alright. (...done in GIMP)

...and who do I p.m. my completed tile to then?


updated(8/20)
i keep changing my tile, although now I think it is really done. here are my borders:

It should be to Indigo.

But the collab is unfortunally still paused.
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4 (on pause)
Post by: hANshOTtH3RD on April 26, 2020, 03:23:50 pm
ok, I've already sent them to Indigo. Is someone going to take this thing over and get it going again? what about Gecimen?

...also 72 hours is way too little for animation(or maybe I'm just a novice)
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4 (on pause)
Post by: Rydin on April 27, 2020, 08:18:07 am
I'll see if I can reach Indigo via secret methods.  ;)

So I decided to do T7 ...I know it's paused, but I couldn't resist.
here's a little texture experiment i did:
(https://i.imgur.com/3Meyk8b.gif)

update - DONE! here are my T7 borders:
(06/26:minor fix, pretty sure done now+fix lettering)
(https://i.imgur.com/ZnoMrm8.gif)

...funny thing(or maybe not) but did HighVolt ever submit his T7 tile(from a year ago)?
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4 (on pause)
Post by: hANshOTtH3RD on June 03, 2020, 06:35:22 pm
I did another tile(T40) DONE!

update(07/04) I did some minor fixes, should be just about done now for the nth time.
here are my borders:
(https://i.imgur.com/OR3K81t.gif)

...I also decided to do T31 and am Done!

update(08/20) it's getting more & more done now, i think it might actually call it quits...
...borders:

Post by: hANshOTtH3RD on July 05, 2020, 06:09:10 am
hey, I came up with an alt template that could perhaps help people prepare their tiles both for submission, and also for displaying borders here publicly(i noticed a few stray pixels in the main progress file):
(https://i.imgur.com/N55jf4E.gif)
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4 (on pause)
Post by: hANshOTtH3RD on July 12, 2020, 03:00:05 pm
T88 Please.

any progress carson? it's been 11 days...

will you show us your borders? it should be pretty easy to do using the new template(if you know anything about selections in photoshop/gimp).

...also i made a little pixel viewer browser widget (https://mrh4nds.github.io/pixelquick/). it's downloadable (https://github.com/MrH4nds/pixelquick) and runs offline. I still don't understand why you can't zoom on the last two hex corpse collabs. Hex 1 & 2 both can be zoomed. Zoom is probably the most important feature of this website!...that and comments.
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4 (on pause)
Post by: Rydin on August 08, 2020, 05:51:50 am
Haven't given up on this. I'll try to contact Indigo right now. Keep moving team!
Title: Re: Hexquisite Corpse 4 (on pause)
Post by: hANshOTtH3RD on August 10, 2020, 01:24:59 am
Update(8/20): I polished up my tiles just a bit, not much though, and have added them to the progress file. I don't want to spend any more time on them, and i think this will have to be their final versions, whether or not i spot any problem going forward. ...i added a little black there along the righthand side of T2...  ...also fixed the top of T31...

Important to note: i don't have access to the full tiles(and shouldn't for now, since i may draw more tiles).
 
...and, as I understand it, the following 12 8 7 tiles are currently available:

T2(Done! by hANshOTtH3RD)
T4
T7(Done! by hANshOTtH3RD)
T16
T31(Done! by hANshOTtH3RD)
T40(Done! by hANshOTtH3RD)
T43
T45
T52
T61
T71
T88(┐┐WIP carson333??)

at this point i think my current tiles are done, although I may still decide to do more tiles. I guess it all depends on if i have time, and if this challenge resumes or not...

...is anyone else bugged that you can't zoom the progress image in the browser(nor the hex_3 final image for that matter)?

...one more thing(very sorry), why are the progress file's layers set to "background-combine-combine-replace"?
the template is "background-combine-combine-combine"... and there is no transparency allowed afaik...
I've actually decided to try and fix this: I un-optimised and re-optimised the main progress gif. I had some problems with the last frame adding transparency, and ended up also having to manually edit the layer attribute to get it to work. It appears to be unchanged; all i did was change layer 4 from replace to combine then un-optimised and re-optimised; here it is if anyone want's to double-check me:

(https://i.imgur.com/huOsAZq.gif)

I also took the liberty to fix that stray pixel on the right hand border of T47. There were some other issue, which I've already pm'd Indigo about, that i did not fix now; mostly the issue with the border between T56 & T46, and the lack of animation to T23, also some questions about the progress of various tiles that were claimed but never completed... idk i almost want to fix the T56 border issue myself(though for now it remains), but I think T23 basically requires a do-over -- unless Grossly Incandescent can come and finish it.
