On the "when it's done" topic that AdamTierney just mentioned, I'd like to volunteer to split this up for a PixelDam, IsoCity, The Joint style html page that links back to all the various artists. Specifically, I'd like to do it like The Joint where you can click on a piece and get more info about the artist in a side pane.  That'll make sure the various artists get proper credit for their contribution.   :-*

Absolutely phenomenal work you've found there Feron.  That's some of the finest bg work I've seen in a platformer.

All the artwork from Earthworm Jim 1/2 is definitely worthy of posting here.  Terrific character design on top of everything else.

I would post my favorite images here, but I don't want to offend an artist... the terrific desktop backgrounds made over at and bizarre scenes over at really got me jazzed about pixel art. So creative and funny.


The full figure sprite looks really sharp however the portrait doesn't seem to match. The jaggy dark outline, the long face, the sleeves, everything looks different.  Try softening the edges, fixing the aforementioned boob issue and then spend some time focusing in on the face.

I'm not sure I even understand where the "Pixelopolis is temp forum" angle is coming from.  What's wrong with this forum?  If it has anything to do with colors/header/layout that can easily be a "theme" thing that can be implemented here. 

Why drag all the pixel people to another forum just so it can be called Pixelation? Seems rather pointless.

Nice to see this brilliant tile collab still has legs. Watching this piece grow at pixelation is one of my fondest memories of the old hub.

8bitty... that Katamari King and robot castle lineart are really tight. Might have to give one of em a go.

The hitler face looks good except his hair covers too much of his face on the right side of his head (our left). 

Check out this ref pic to see what I mean...

General Discussion / Pixel Joint Leveling Up

Howdy peeps,

Since a large chunk of the Pixelopolis board also are members of Pixel Joint I wanted to announce the first big membership change... Leveling Up!

Benefits of Leveling Up
As you level up you'll gain the ability to give out more rating points for pixel art and more karma points* for rating other members comments. You'll also get new rank titles for the rank theme you've selected as you move up.

How to Level Up
You go up in rank by accumulating points which you collect by contributing to Pixel Joint. Points can be collected by commenting on pixel art and news, posting pixel art, rating pixel art, posting links and posting news. Contests and having top notch pixel art will also get you special bonus points.

  • Posting Pixel Art = 6 points
  • Submitting News = 5 points
  • Submitting Links = 4 points
  • Posting Comments = 3 points*
  • Rating = 1 point

Why Bother?
Mostly just for fun, but we also want to help newer pieces get exposure in the hall of fame. As more and more people gain rank newer pixel art pieces will have a chance to "catch up" to the point total of older pieces because most people won't take the time to re-rank older pieces. This should help keep the top ranked art a nice mix of fresh work and old favorites. Plus, it's always nice to have more power (feel free to toss your head back and let out a hearty villain laugh).

*KARMA COMING SOON! We plan to put in a reputation/karma system which will allow members to give points to a person if their comment is insightful and subtract points if their comment is off topic or spam. To prevent abuse of the karma system, points will not directly change the point total for another member. Admins will use the karma system to keep an eye out for how members are doing. This will make it easy to distribute awards and kudos to stellar members and point zaps and bans to members who are abusing the system.

I'm going to put some effort into finetuning pieces rather than just being a lazy sob cranking out sketchy stuff. I was pretty happy with this one at first, but the longer I look at it the more I think I need to put in some editing.

Alex and Brian the Great already pointed out a couple flaws on this one (no hair contrast, breast is all out of whack). I'm open to color changes, bg suggestions or anything else although I want to keep the red light district flavor. It's currently at 15 colors and I want to keep it around that range if possible. Thx.
