I also found Natalies story very interessting, I had no time back then though.
however I started with this one, we'll see if I manage to finish it in time...

I guess there will be many who interpret the right upper lines as a spider... I did as well.


it's still a bit messy...

I'm too busy to pixel it though.

why?

only restriction is you use the same canvas size...which he's doing.

The challenge is pixel something "based on Pearl's drawing." Strictly speaking you could draw anything. For example you could draw a dog eating a scarab, if that is "what you see".

Heh, well if thats the effect you want, it shouldn't hurt your feelings.  it gives the same result as the spray tool, and that's apparently what you were going for, so I wont say much more.

lost the white, and the little dithering i had, muted a few other colors and started on the platform and other misc. refinements. might be able to get this down to 32 colors if i tried, but i don't know if its worth the effort

Great Setzer....cant wait to see the finished product...but something about the laser beam seems weird to me. I don't know why. It stands out to much like its floating a little. I wouldn't know how to go about fixing it, maybe not make it as wide or something, it kind of seems like the base of the beam is larger than the source its coming from. And where it makes contact with the ground also seems floaty. Maybe some rubble or smoke at the point of impact would bring what looks like 2 different layers together. But I can see it is far from done, and you may have already had that planned.

flyguy: yeah, I am planning on having buildings and such being blown to sh*t. Not exactly sure how i'm going to do that, though. I'll try making a thinner lazer later, just working on this in bursts for now.




(changed around some more)

I want to know if the blimp looks better smooth or "patchy" as it was before

This is my first (WIP) attempt at pixel art...
I didn't get much time to work on it but the basic idea was to create a alien warrior..

Also i'd like to know how much can we edit the main picture...
from what i see, most of you have heavily edited the main picture
So, i think that's allowed..but upto how much extent?

And a LINK to this artists fantastic works.



Oh noes I was gonna post this on Sunday when the challenge was over, oh well. Fyi, I emailed Pearls' Mom several times to let her know but nothing.
I actually wondered if we could get Pearl to write something and/or vote.
anyhoo, hope no one is swayed by seeing Pearl. Now that y'alls see Pearl has 2 Mommies I expect mature behavior, mkay 9.9

might tweak it more, probably will.

i tried to avoid pure white as much as possible, not sure if i should go about muddling up the colors with aa even more, i tried to keep them kind of seperate, worked it down to 36. I'm still not sure if it feels as dark as i want though. I also didn't dither, not sure if I should've or not, I've been trying to avoid it for readability lately, and thats probably even more important with how much is going on there.

I quote.. you could have focused on shading avoiding details.

btw I've done my submission
some are arguing that this is "adult content", like a little girl has never seen a woman's breast right now I've added a "contains nudity" on the title.

I got way behind, this is th best I got, I am ashamed I barely finished the solid color, I didn't get any shading, details(which are needed all over) But I plan to make a story an octopus she saw in the desert that fell off a truck but I didn't even get to a sky, let alone the truck, desert sand, faded highway, or a cool sun wavy disort thing. And the presective I tried to add just made the octopus look huge and the whole scene unproportional. Idk if I will come back to fix it later, probably not though.
