General Discussion / Aphantasia - not having the "mind's eye"
« on: April 27, 2016, 04:59:06 am »
I recently found out that this condition I have now has a name "Aphantasia" - the inability to synthesise sense perception in ones mind. Things like mental images and inner voices don't mean anything to me, I do not have them.
Or well, I get an inner voice, kinda, but I do not hear it, it has not tone, no accent, no timbre, it is very hard to describe.

Here is a link to a site which deals with aphantasia and it has a set of questions which you can try and answer yourself, see how you fare.

For me everything on there comes out absolutely zero, total aphantasia, regarding any senses.

It is impossible for me to imagine how it would be to not have this, to be able to actually visualise things I am not actually seeing with my eyes. I always knew that I could not do this, but being able to give it a name and talk to people who have it as well is comforting. It also seems to explain a lot, in terms of why I am the way I am.

When it comes to art it is also interesting. Basically I think on paper/in the program I am working in. I always liked to doodle, and to just combine things, try new things on paper. One of the reasons I enjoy doing those face sheets so much I reckon.

Would be interesting to hear from fellow artists who might have this as well, in varying degrees.

So here is the trailer:

This is what I have been working on mostly for the last 1.5 years on and off. Still a good way to go until everything is done, but it already is very solid in all the relevant places.

More info on the website too

Hope you folks enjoy what you see :)

General Discussion / Cyangmou is a mod now!
« on: February 16, 2015, 01:16:39 am »
Yes, Cyangmou is a mod now since I felt that he would make a good addition after Helm asked me why he was not a mod already.

He seems like a helpful guy and knows what he is doing in the pixel department, plus he seems passionate about the subject.

Welcome him as a new mod :)

General Discussion / Server Maintenance
« on: September 19, 2012, 11:40:46 am »
Hi everyone,
The forum will be down end of today around 23:00 to 4:00 UTC because of server maintenance.
Don't worry, nothing weird going on, just our host doing some stuff.

General Discussion / IMPORTANT! READ! Scheduled Downtime!
« on: August 04, 2012, 04:16:37 pm »
OK, sometime tomorrow the forum will go into maintenance mode and then we might be down for a couple of days, probably will be back up sometime Tuesday. We are doing some moving and upgrading the forum software, so hang in tight.

General Discussion / Yearly donation action!
« on: July 11, 2012, 06:44:18 pm »
OK, here is the deal.
We will be moving server again very soon (next month). The server we are moving too is cheaper and has also unlimited bandwidth, plus Crow who is part of the Pix staff does work there, which is nice. I also really hope this will be the last server change ever in the life of pixelation.

The servercost for now will be around 70 euros for a year. This might get more with time if we need more space, but for now what they offer in the deal we will take should be plenty.

Click to get to donation button.

We already got some money donated so we actually do not need too much to get to the 70 euros at all.
Every little bit helps tho.

Challenges & Activities / Tzigla Rocks!!!
« on: November 30, 2010, 10:26:24 am »
OK then, evilchelu and his girlfriend are awesome and are doing this Tzigla (former Patratzel) web application which will allow people to do Hexquisite corpse collabs much much easier. Atm only square collabs are possible but there will hopefully be Hex collabs and iso stuff as well in the future.

So here goes. The first collab will mainly be for testing, but that does not mean it should be poop, right?

Palette will be C64, because I did not feel to make one atm :P
Ideally if all works as planned you will have to use exactly these colours, any other colour and you will get an error on upload.

CLICK TO SIGN IN TO TZIGLA and then select board 2.

If it does not sign you in properly (you are if it says "signed in as [username]" in the top bar) try to click the little Pixelation icon in the top right and that should work.

From there it should be pretty straightforward. Don't neglect your Secret Santa gift making if you partake in this :)
