ok, I've already sent them to Indigo. Is someone going to take this thing over and get it going again? what about Gecimen?

...also 72 hours is way too little for animation(or maybe I'm just a novice)

What do you want help with exactly?

not sure really, looking at it now, I actually think it turned out alright(to bad it was not accepted). I suppose I'm still struggling with choosing my color palette, and then getting those colors to come out in the right places(I sort of figured it out as I went along though). It's still not quite finish though(not sure I will finish it). I tried hard to eliminate extraneous colors, like in the face mask, although in that case I decided it was better with them in. ...I think there are still at least 2 extra colors in there that i shouldn't have; they were in my palette, and got lost in the noise. the prompt was for 16 colors. I cut it down to 14.

Hello, I made a medical+biblical pixel diddy. Apologies for the rough/unpolished look look, I sort of did this in an afternoon, and it's not really done; however I'm not sure I will finish, even though I'm sure there are things that could be improved, or that I could have done differently...  any way here it is:

This was for this weeks challenge on, although at this point the deadline is fast approaching and it still has not been approved. They really seam to have set up quite a gauntlet for new users over there: points & levels...i can't even write comments on my own posts, and I can't access their forum because I don't have enough points yet. it's kind of funny actually ;D

(btw) i heavily relied on a reference image for this; you can probably find it pretty quick on google, if you can tell which one because he is wearing a mask ;P

looks like my 1st post was hidden?(i drew a design for T2 a few months back, although I guess I forgot to introduce myself, so my account was not yet approved.)

...anyway, now it is Done!(i think) was a bit of a learning experience for me, but i think it turned out alright. (...done in GIMP)

...and who do I p.m. my completed tile to then?

i keep changing my tile, although now I think it is really done. here are my borders:

Hello all, hANshOTtH3RD here(a.k.a. hANdsh0Tn0goOd on imgur, and u/dares2share on reddit). I registered back in 2016, but I guess i forgot to introduce myself until now...

I have no formal training in graphic art, although I've always liked to draw ever since I was a kid. Really, it's mostly just been doodles in notebook margins. I sort of had a lull during my college days, although in recent years I began playing around in GIMP, and doing some logo design for some personal software projects.

Recently circumstances have sort of put programing on the back-burner a bit, while also leaving me with more time to scroll the internet, and also draw more. What started as logo design drifted more into collages/mashups, and digital-art in general(all in GIMP-2.8.10).

I definitely also have a thing for retro style graphics. I think it is nostalgia for when I was a kid; too young to play games myself, rather watching older kids play the games for me. ;) Also, I guess, in my short debut as a software developer, I sort of grew an aversion to all sorts of new tech coming out, and consequently now seek out classic/vintage/retro stuff as much as possible.

Also, I've become more & more interested in recent developments in the healthcare industry the past few years, as I seem to have acquired some bad luck, and various accompanying medical problems. I've also taken more interest in business+investing news, from my various attempts in business/efforts to build a carrier for myself. ...I've also become more aware of the international goings on. ...basically I like to watch the news!  ...and I also like pixel art! ;D

Not sure if there is another solution, but what I would do(using GIMP) is import my desired font and copy+paste my text, then chose text-to-path, then path-to-selection, and finally bucket fill or copy-paste my texture/gradient/shading into my selection(might also try multiple layers if your going for a "3d" look).

...I guess if you are trying to do this in a game(or custom program), you will have to do some programing, starting with the edge-detection to get the outline of the font you are using...

Hi all, long time lurker first time poster(sort of). Don't know if any of you follow the news, but I did a diddy of John Bolton:'s the Obama "hope" style. I'm having some problems with speckling, not sure if there is an easy trick to get rid of that?(i'm working in GIMP btw) It's kinda messy because it's all generated via image processing(indexing, paths+selections, paintbucket, layering). I started to try and lean it up manually, although I sort of too big a job for the amount of time I want to spend. Anyone know a quick trick to remove speckles? or the proper way to do whatever it is you call this so that I don't end up with speckles to begin with?
