Started on this a few months ago and came back to it again recently. Still a bit rough in the tilework right now. I really gotta  look at my tiles and work out a common border so they are more seamless.

Stil, Il thought it would be nice to get some input and impressions. I think the main problem I have with it now is it feels lifeless. Maybe I should start adding some more stuff like shops and plump helmet spawns on the ground etc. I thnk I need to break up the rocky tiles more. Way too monotonous. Maybe I should create some fuzzy spots with fewer details.

Also in case anybody is wondering this isn't meant to be functional in any way. I don't intend to make some sort of DF side scroller mod or whatever. Just having some fun.

Pixel Art / Underwater fishy mockup
« on: July 22, 2006, 02:37:34 am »
Started on this yesterday and like what I've got so far. I recently finished playing Super Mario World2: Yoshi's Island, so some stuff might look pretty similar(I really liked th use of black in the game).


Here's a quick tile sheet I made up if you wnat to see the tiles by themselves. I don't know if I got every single tile, but at most there should only be 1 or two tiles missing(I think there might be some small colour differences, too).


And also included is a quick swimming animation I made

Pixel Art / Harvest Moon Mockup
« on: February 18, 2006, 10:12:32 pm »
I'm in the mood for a little Harvest Moon, and I started making a little Harvest moon sprite using my avatar's base. From there I ended up with this little beaut. I'm quite proud of it, but I'd like to see what you guys think. I think I may need to make up another grass tile because of repetition.

In case you're wondering, the x pattern dirt tiles are supposed to be dry earth that's cracking.

Archived Activities / The Official Secret Santa Thread
« on: December 24, 2005, 06:38:47 am »
I don't really know what else to say, except that: IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE!

These are the gifts I have so far. As I said in the other threads, you'll need to post it yourself if you didn't email it to me. I'll edit this post with all the new gifts whenever I'm online again.

I'll also still be checking the secret.santa.submissions@gmail.com account to make sure I didn't miss any.

And now the moment you've all been waiting for, I've made a link to each image rather than post it with the img tag so that the page doesn't become too bogged down and the animations begin to slow.

General Discussion / Secret Santa Deadline Is Almost Here!
« on: December 14, 2005, 10:59:16 am »
All of the PMs have been sent off. Each PM contains the name of the person that YOU are responsible for making a gift for. You now have until the end of the 23rd to complete your Secret Santa gift. Once again, this cutoff date is really for our benefit so that we have the time necessary to organise the things on our end. A thread with all the gifts will be posted in the Activities & Challenges Section on the 24th

As established from a previous year, the only rule here is that your gift be pixelled in nature.


WHAT DO I DO WHEN IíM FINISHED?
When you have finished, you have two options. You can send an email with a link to your image(for free image hosts check the Tools & tutorials thread) to secret.santa.submissions@gmail.com and we will post it in the final Secret Santa thread. When sending the email, make sure that you say what your username is, and who the gift is for so that we know who you are. If the email address is on the fritz, you can also PM it to me. The second option is you can post the gift yourself, BUT NOT UNTIL THE FINAL SECRET SANTA THREAD IS CREATED ON THE 24TH


WAIT A MINUTE, I NEVER GOT A PM!
If you havenít received a PM with the name of whom you will be pixelling for, send me off a PM and Iíll fix this quick.


WHAT IF I FORGOT TO SIGN UP?
If you didn't sign up in time, it is possible to get in on this activity. Send me a PM, and if another person comes along who didn't sign up, I'll pair the two of you up.


Please donít start making posts trying to figure out who is making your secret santa. Do your best to live with this secret shame for the next week or two.

Other than that, have fun, be creative, and donít hold anything back when making your  gifts.

Also, a big THANK YOU goes out to Goat who was a tremendous help with matching up people and sending out the PMs to everyone.

Hi all, it's that special time of the year again and you know what that means; it's time for Pixelopolisí first ever Secret Santa!

For those of you who donít know, the Secret Santa is a community activity where a bunch of Pixelopolis members get together and pixel gifts for each other.

At this point weíll be taking names for those of you interested in participating. This will continue until the 13th at 11:59PM, at which point PMs will be sent out to all of you have decided to participate. This PM will contain the name of the person for whom you will be pixelling a gift. This person will not necessarily be the person who will be pixelling your gift. From this point you have until the 23rd to finish your gift. This will give us the time we need to organize all the gifts.

Weíll be adding to this thread to answer any questions you have. Please send any questions you have to me through PM, as weíd like to keep this thread clean. If you would like to sign up for the Secret Santa, a simple reply expressing your uninhibited joy will suffice.

Weíll also update this thread every day or so with a list of the people who are participating. If it looks like we missed your name, send me a PM and weíll add you to the list.

General Discussion / Crab2selout.png's Campaign Thread
« on: November 12, 2005, 08:02:45 pm »
Presenting the crab2selout.png campaign thread.

About Myself: Iím not entirely sure how long Iíve known Pixelopolis/Pixelation for. Iíve been a member here since September í04, but Iíve known it for, I think, a year before that. Perhaps the earliest thing I can remember is a Super Metroid Commercial Critique and I can remember some of Ndealís first pixels.

Activities: My favourite things in pixel art are tiled game world art, and the sprites that inhabit these worlds. Creating challenges that revolve around these two would interest me the most. However, if this would not provide enough variety, I will do my best to work with the other sides of pixel art to come up with some interesting activities. Iíll try my best to meet the many needs of Pixelopolis and its members.

Iím also hearing some people out there clamouring for a commercial critique. Iíve only had the opportunity to watch one CC in action, and wasnít really paying attention when it did, BUT, all this talk has gotten me interested in learning how it works. If elected I will put substantial effort into this and find out from the older members how they worked and what made them so interesting and appealing. Working with the other representatives, I will use this to bring to you a commercial critique.

To summarise my goals: bring the commercial critique back, and provide some variety in the challenges if needed.

Now, are there any questions you'd like to ask or doubts to share? ;)

Pixel Art / Let's get it started, eh?
« on: July 18, 2005, 05:13:32 am »
Here's something I finished up the other day. It's sort of a pimp/prince guy I want to use for a platform/puzzle game I'm thinking of.


I made a little mockup as well. I'm not really looking for any crits on the mockup as it was mostly a test to come up with a style and colour scheme that looked good. Comments on the mockup are welcome though.
