Challenges & Activities / Jumping Jack-o-Lanterns!
« on: October 14, 2006, 02:32:06 am »
Happy Friday the 13th, Pixelation!  It's October, and as every young candy lover knows, at the end of this month lies that wonderful festivity of tooth decay known as Halloween!  Of course, Halloween isn't all about rotting teeth; it's also about scaring young children, drinking hot apple cider, and, of course, making Jack-o-Lanterns.  So what better way to celebrate Halloween here than to make some Jack-o-Lanterns of our own?  Just color one of the templates below (or use your own outline) by Halloween, and this will be the spookiest thread on all of Pixelation.  Extra bonus points for animations.  Happy Pixelling!


Greetings and salutations to all you pixel artists out there!

I present to you: Iso Collaboration III!

For those of you who don't know the rules, they are as follows:
1. Each person may make one tile, or set of connected, similarly-colored tiles at a time.  For example, you could reserve a single tile, like 75, or you could reserve a block of tiles like {79-88-89} or {21-30-36-44-43} or "That yellow chunk with 35 in it".  Keep in mind that blocks of tiles must be touching along a side and of the same color.  Also, if you do not want to do the entirety of a large block, but want to put tiles in that area, that's fine too.  The block rule is completely optional.
2. Ideally, new tiles should connect to pre-existing tiles, but this rule can be stretched if deemed appropriate.
3. Please announce what tiles you are planning to do.  I will attempt to keep this post updated with the newest version, and mark spaces that are currently in progress.
4. Please try to use colors from tiles that have already been made, so as to attempt to make some semblance of unity in the collaboration.
5. Don't be afraid to break the iso grid.  The last one, though it did not get finished, broke the grid very nicely.
6. Be creative, and overall, have fun!

Ready, set, go!

General Discussion / robalan's campaign thread
« on: November 11, 2005, 10:30:48 pm »
Hello, all.  As stated by the thread topic, this is my campaign thread.  Any questions you have for me will be swiftly answered, and if you want to know my views on anything (pixel related or not (but pixel related is more relevant)), feel free to ask.

Like the other candidates, I too am a strong proponent of community activities, challenges, and other collaborative events.  Noting the recent inactivity in the Challenges & Activities forum, I think such action is very necessary.  I first got involved in Pixelation through such threads, and personally know their benefits.  Furthermore, I believe that good critique is an essential part of being a member.  There is nothing more disappointing than posting some art that has had many hours of labor poured into it, knowing there are still things to fix, and getting nothing but vapid, meaningless comments, or worse, no comments at all.  I will try to set a good example as a critiquer, helping my fellow Pixelopolians to improve their artwork.  I have been a member of Pixelation for a long time, and have always done all I could to help the community.  This behavior will not change if I am granted the privilege of serving the community.  So vote robalan in the elections, and fear my lack of a slogan :-P
