Challenges & Activities / Five Line Story Activity !
« on: January 02, 2015, 02:09:55 am »
Hello Pixelators!
It's a new year.
And near the top of my list was:
Add new activities consistantly to Pixelation.
So why not start it off on the 1st day?  ;D

Five Line Story Activity !

  • Choose one of the stories given below
  • Create the visuals for each line of the story!
  • Include ALL of the text
  • Be creative!
  • Post your amazing interpretation :)

Story 1
It's been a long time...
What have you been up to?
Some of this and that...
Well... should we get started then?
Let's do it!

Story 2
That's weird...
I don't see anythi-
*drip* *drip*

Story 3
Oh yes!
Soooo goood...
... whatever

A story board or comic strip layout is a good place to start, but is not required.

The number of characters, location, and context are not defined.
Stretch the meaning of the story.

I would give visual examples, but I want part of the fun to be figuring it out. ;)

Have fun!

Cyangmou pointed out a cool place for streaming art:

Will be streaming pixels from here every so often:
My channel

I want to encourage others to do the same.  :y:
Drop by sometime.  :crazy:

Changed the title of this thread.
Everyone feel free to post here whenever you go live.

General Discussion / Happy Bunny and Eggs Day!
« on: April 20, 2014, 07:58:07 pm »
Don't eat the chocolate eggs!

General Discussion / GDC Next Week!
« on: March 10, 2014, 05:24:57 pm »
I'm going to GDC this year, will be there from the 19th - 22nd.
I'm going to walk around, talk to people, trade cards, and look for work.
Anyone else going?
We could meet up, hang out and talk about stuff.

General Discussion / Tablet Pixel Portfolio Software?
« on: March 10, 2014, 02:13:57 am »
I've been looking for an image viewer to display pixel art on a Windows 8 tablet.
But I can't seem to find one.
Does any one know of any?
The windows photo viewer filters pixels when you zoom in.
Any thoughts?
I'm considering programming a simple viewer in Unity if I can't find anything.

Pixel Art / What is this section about?
« on: February 04, 2014, 07:29:25 am »
Welcome to the new animation section.

Whats the point of this section?
Here you can share your animations.
Talk about theory.
Ask questions.
Look at examples.
Find links.
Do exercises.

What kind of art can I post here?
Any medium is fine!
Pixels, pencils, 2D, 3D, whatever.

Why would I post a pixel animation here instead of in the Pixel Art boards?
It is not mandatory that you post ALL animations here.
If you choose to post in this section have the mindset to dig deeper into animation itself rather than pixel technique.

Do I always have to post an animation I'm currently working on?
I want this section to be open to discussions and art.
As long as your thread/post is animation focused then it is valid.

You want to compare your frame building process with others.
You've been thinking about frame speeds and how they can affect different aspects of animation and want to talk/draw about it.
You want to ask a question about an animation tool.
You want to know more about that _____ animation technique you keep hearing about.
You found something cool and want to show others and talk about it.

I also plan on starting a few threads about different stuff and everyone is welcome to contribute.

And that's it.
If you have these kinds of interests get to posting.
As a community let's build a cool place full of animation theory and practice.

Challenges & Activities / The Daily Sketch
« on: January 30, 2014, 01:22:42 pm »

This thread is for posting whatever you worked on today.
It doesn't have to be finished.
It doesn't have to be good.
Any size.
Any medium.
Any style.
Any colors.
Just take some time and draw/create something!
Then show it to us.
See how many days you can post in a row without missing a day.
The idea is to turn out lots of different ideas and drawings over time.
Or if you really want, you can post the same thing again if you do more work on it the next day.
Crits and thoughts are also welcome.
But try hard to always post an image of your own along with text.

Pixel Art / Some characters [Nudity, Gore, NSFW]
« on: September 15, 2013, 07:01:42 am »

Been messing with this off and on for a while.
I don't have the exact arrangement nailed down.
While it is intended to be symmetrical I might add some asymmetrical elements when more of it is finished.
Any thoughts are welcome.

Challenges & Activities / Totem Pole!
« on: October 05, 2012, 04:43:51 pm »
It's time for a new activity!

Rune and Blune have both fallen in love with Princess GiGi.
Because they are equally charming Princess GiGi cannot decide between them.
In order to impress her they have challenged each other to a duel!
The man with the biggest Totem will win her love!

Select a Character

Totem Template


Minimum Width

- Use the palette below the character you choose
- Draw a chunk of totem! Be creative!
- Your totem chunk should connect more or less to the template and fit the canvas size
- Your totem should be of the minimum width or greater at both ends
- Post your finished chunk and I will add it to the totem pole
- Multiple entries for either character are allowed
- Animation is fixed at 10fps/100ms per frame
- Animations should have frame amounts which are powers of 2, NOT multiples of 2!

Time Limit
- The activity will end 1 month from now: 11/5/12
- An awesome ending for the winner will be revealed!
