PJ Official Owlboy Poster Competition


icon

There's only a few days until Owlboy -a game from DPad Studios founded by PJ member Snake- is released! In this special competition, we want you to design your own Owlboy poster. While you can use character designs and locations from Owlboy, you have to pixel everything yourself, including the title.

Top three entrants will win a copy of the game plus unique tropies for their profiles.

  • Please post your entries with labels beginning with "Owlboy Comp".
  • This is not a weekly challenge, so don't tick the weekly challenge box.
  • Size: 250 x 140 (horizontal).
  • Animation not allowed.
  • Transparency not allowed.
  • 32 colours max.
  • Any logo or logotype design must belong to you.
  • No copy pasting sprites or other assets from the game.
  • Multiple submissions are allowed.
  • The winners will be chosen by PJ mods and selected judges. Judges will not be able to participate in the contest.
  • Contest is open until 10th of November.
  • Top three entrants will win a copy of Owlboy, plus a unique Owlboy competition trophy (more entries may be awarded with an honorable mention).

Just like normal pixel art submission, just type Owlboy comp in the title.

How and/or where do I submit my entry?

Unfortunately I won't have time to finish this, so I'm plopping it here for now :D

@dimwiddy; sure.


user

@Serbirus; as with all pixeljoint challenges, using preexisting material is forbidden...

Would we still be allowed to put our works up on RedBubble and such?


user
Serbirus (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 10/28/2016 18:15

Quick question:

Is it okay to use a pre-existing sprite/asset in our poster? I have a Gawk sprite I already made (NOT directly from the  game's assets so it doesn't break the rules) before the contest was announced that fits really well in the piece I'm making.

so cool! I heard of this game a long time ago

Can't wait to see all the entries at the end of the contest, and wish everyone the best of luck!

Hey Pixel Joint, Thanks for hosting this. Owlboy looks to be a ton of fun and their "hi-bit" graphics are simply phenomenal.


user
Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/26/2016 03:34

Title would be awesome but keywords will help us search too.


user
eishiya (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/24/2016 05:56

Excellent, thanks for clearing that up. I hope I can find the time to participate, this time of year's busy for me.

Edit: What is a "label" on PJ? Is that the title, or the keywords?


user
Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 10/24/2016 04:02

They will not be used. PJ, D-Pad (and anyone else who wants) may post a news item showing the winners, but that's it.


user
eishiya (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/21/2016 08:16

Will the entries be used anywhere outside of PJ (i.e. for promoting Owlboy or PJ), or will the submissions only be seen as part of this competition?


user
Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 10/21/2016 05:12

Oh hellz yes. I've been waiting for this game for a long time!!! I have to participate in this O_O
