Pixel Art / Bubbles
« on: December 19, 2008, 01:35:37 am »

Some basic bubble blocks for a game I'm making. They are monochrome right now, to be made into 5 or so different colors, but I wanna make sure my AA is correct first.

Thanks! :)

General Discussion / Developing A 32/64 Color Palette
« on: December 18, 2008, 08:10:21 pm »
I am trying to build a simple, reusable 32/64 color palette, for my retro gaming website,

Firstly, I need to pick whether 32 or 64 is going to be my palette.

Secondly, I need to build a palette that will be very reusable for both the website and for the many games that I will produce.

I appreciate any words of wisdom, thank you!


Here is a ramp of grays (including black and white). There are 7 actualy grays. This is probably perfect for 64 colors, so this will be the foundation for that palette.

And here is a ramp for a 32 color palette:

Both of these palettes use standard increments, the first being 32, the second being 64.

Okay, I'm having a lot of trouble here. I'm still very unsure about 32/64 and as such, I will just develop both for now.

I've been trying mathematical ways of forming a palette, but they all result in poor colors that just don't seem like they will look good. (The blues and the greens I have here were done by taking a picture of a sky, and a picture of grass respectively, adjusting there sat/color, then lowering the color depth. How ever, I worried about how well a palette like this will work out, and the blues didn't turn out very good.)

Pixel Art / Site Header
« on: December 18, 2008, 06:27:37 pm »

Hello, I am the co-creator of, a soon to be active gaming website.

This is the header for the website, and I would really appreciate any and all helpful C+C, as this is going to be a real investment for me.

I will also be posting other stuff shortly, right now, I am just mocking up the web page to start off with.

An important note: I already know about this websites zoom feature (I am a artist who frequented here a few years ago) and the zoomed images purpose is that the header is actually going to appear at that size on the website (as well as the rest of the site being that way.) I want the whole website to kinda scream pixel art... but scream softly lol.

Pixel Joy Logo and Pixel Joy Panda are Austin Way 2008

EDIT: Yeah, sorry about that... I blame imageshack for not giving me a "true" direct link to the image.
