Pixel Art Challenge: 1BITty BITness


icon
Using only 1 color of your choice on a 1 color background create a pixel which suggests depth and volume.

  • 2 color palette of your choice.
  • No transparency.
  • The pixel canvas is not restricted.
  • Nothing remotely close to Oekaki allowed, pixel placement accuracy is a must.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

here here! i have ze question:

i've seen many pieces submitted already in the queque, and some are ok, but they lack any kind of volume or depth. those pieces doesn't fit the rules or the "idea" of the challenge, and therefore shouldn't be accepted?

Oh yes, but what a color! It was RED! Red all over!

Actually I was out of inspiration. Now I have two ideas in mind. One is not so great, for the other I'll need time I don't have.

@adam: so you have an image filled with one colour? How... interesting

Started mine. Been working on it for a half an hour now, it's nearly done and I still have an unused color.

EZtoon is an exelent software that you can use for this challenge, since it's 1bit based and comes with an exelent support for animations.

here's another exelent reference of a 1bit animation realizaed with EZtoon
