Pixel Art / Re: Simple ball with reflect

Also, I wouldn't worry about adding color until you master basic volumetric shading. Really, the best start for any pixeller should be pen and pencil drawing. Easier to start with, get the basics in order. is a great place to start.

Funny, I'm working on a similar image for the Fairchild Channel F right now. It's not so colorful, of course! ;D I'll post it in about a week.

Pixel compo ending soon if anyone is interested:

A friend of mine (e5frog, a.k.a. Fredric Blholtz) is a big fan of the Fairchild Channel F. You may have read about him and his homebrew Pac-Man game. He is working on some more homebrews like International Karate.

Now, Fredric on a different forum has issued a small gfx compo. He is looking to put together a slide show of some nice images, and possibly the artist making the best image would get a custom Channel F cartridge with the slide show. I don't know if this is anything that interests you, perhaps from a purely challenge point of view.

Some specs about the Channel F graphics: The image size is 102 x 58 pixels. Possibly one can squeeze in a bit more on screen, but this is the image format Fredric is working with. Each pixel is a bit taller than it is wide. He says in 16:9 mode the pixels are quite square. It's pretty close to the Commodore 64 pixel ratio.

On each (raster) row, you can select one of four palettes:

1. Light grey, red, green, blue
2. Light green, red, green, blue
3. Light blue, red, green, blue
4. Black, white

That means you can't use black and white on the same row as any colour. The three light colours are pretty close to each other:

Fredric wants submissions until August 12. If you would like to participate, please let me know and I can either forward your creations or point you to where you can submit them yourself. Of course you could also email Fredric with your pics at

Greets, long-time lurker and longer-time pixel-pusher. I mostly do work in the Commodore 64 under the same alias, and you can see some of my stuff here. I've also done some work for the VIC-20, C128, Amiga, and Fairchild Channel F. As soon as someone codes a decent editor for the A8 series, I might work with that too. ;-)

Thanks, Ptoing has replied and I've given him the compo details! :-)

Mods, feel free to delete and respond personally if that makes more sense... I'm new here. I'd like to announce a pixel compo, but it doesn't seem that I can post in the challenges topic. Is that a restricted topic? Thanks!
