The Official Pixelopolis Off-Topic Thread

on: September 30, 2005, 01:47:34 pm
You're welcome to talk about anything, including how well or how poorly the officers are conducting themselves; this is the off-topic thread. Keep it clean!

      How is everyone doing concerning PT's passing? If we need more time, I'll keep the topic pinned.

      Octoberness coming, weather changing!! Perhaps it's premature, but Halloween is almost here! I kind of wish it was a month long, though I'm getting sick of sweets more often. Did I hear this right, Candy Corn flavored soda?!

      I encourage everyone to pixel at least once a day! Talent, like dreams, must be fed on a regular basis!

Happy OTness!

Chilly = 13lue?

BTW, We need a sketch/speedpaint thread, as been said. I could start one. But chances are I won't.

How would you guys suggest doing a 1028x768 background?  That's way too big for pixeling.  Tiling?  That might work, but I'm thinking some type of non-pixeling method would be better.  I remember DayDream posted on the old boards non pixeled backgrounds that looked pretty snazzy.  Any suggestions?

Yesterday was my school's homecoming.

For my german class, I was in the parade.

I put a dog mascot suit on, along with some oversized-leiderhosen and chucked candy at little kids.

Man, I can't think of a better way to spend an hour.

EDIT: Just found this...

10 points for that.

What?!?! Blasphemy... Erm... I wouldn't mind seeing a line-art blitz come out of that. Give me some more details about this... traditionally the posting of non-pixel art was done in expectation that there'd be some pixeling coming out of it, such as with posting game concept art. Sometimes I have the urge to post non pixel art, but I know that would be wrong if I wasn't then pixeling the cg art. I'm a bit more lax on works that are partially pixelled. People have the liberty to ignore things that aren't done with pixel art methods... so yeah, again, more details please. Maybe the representatives could consider this.

If you have the will, there's nothing too big to be pixelled. But I would probably suggest an indexed painting mode (demoscene style, may need a particular app to do it), like some of the cool large backgrounds which have been posted on the forum before.

That sounds great Evan

Pixel Comic... read a few of them.  *Thumbs Up*   Amusing!
