I'm curious, does that count as real pixel placement FrankieSmileShow? I've always wondered with your pieces and while I thoroughly enjoy each it seems more like a scribble technique then each singular pixel being placed with love and care. Either way you should finish because that looks damn awesome. <3

no, we mean its sort of scribbled, so you didnt draw pixel by pixel but you took your pencil tool and just scribbled to make some mountains.. you have drawn alot of lines next to each other to get a mountain, and you didnt zoom in to pixel level to place every pixel on exactly the right place...

OK, pixel by pixel does not mean that you literally have to click for each dot.

You seem to be very informed on how I proceed! Do you spy over my shoulder as I lay down the pixels in such an horribly pseudo-random fashion, a slap in the face of pixel art itself? May the gods of bitmap forgive my gratuitous insolence, and may I be struck by righteous divine fury where I stand! Give me 2*2 checkerboard dithering or give me death! Chaotic lines? yea rite more like ARTISTIC RAPE!

Or it might just be my style, mh? Miiight be. Bah, strike me down nonetheless, to be on the safe side. :o
(its just my style. And every pixel is lovingly(as in, I had children with every one of them(thats at least 480000 children)) placed. Honest. :D)

Perfect time to go back and explore the wood-cut style.  I got the style down, just need a subject...  boat?  building?  Not sure yet...
And now for something completely different...

I don't know making a platformer is a good idea for this challenge  cuz it said that it should suggest depth and volume.

Metaru's list of things to do:
  1. define canvas & colours
  2. draw moon(uff)
  3. draw characters
  4. animations
  5. dithering&color
  6. draw background
  7. revision
  8. submission
planning to give this as my anniversary gift, for my girlfriend. somewhat i feel proud of that moon. really. and those colors have an special meaning too, since orange's is her favourite color, as dark blue is mine's

when you use colour reduction you make Akira cry

I would post evidence of your reference moon craftily overlayed to show that it was clearly a colour reduction but could you just own up so i don't have to bother?

Hey metaru, si quieres me puedes desbloquear en el msn, que sino no hay casi ningun pixel artista que hable español :O xD y no se pueden compartir opiniones bien formuladas en mi caso xD
si respondes me puedes decir que es eso de canvas, que sinceramente no entiendo xD

Adios!

Geez Metaru, I was making the exact same thing! Here's my WIP:

  

But seriously, though. I took a frame from Lawrence's animation and colour reduced it with Photoshop. I must say, the resemblance is uncanny.
That moon just screamed colour reduction + diffusion to me the minute I saw it, and I find it very hard to believe that even a single pixel of it was placed by hand. If you did do it all by hand, then please accept my sincerest apologies, but if it is indeed a colour reduction then you should know that you can get banned for it. And especially because it's for a challenge.
