I recommend that before you get too carried away with pixelling you should rethink your idea a bit. Right now you've chosen the most obvious idea possible. Sit down for 15 mins, get a piece of paper and write down as many other ideas you can possibly think of.

Often your first idea isn't the best, try and come up with a few more interesting ideas.

That's what I was wondering, as well as clarification on the grays. Does the no grays rule mean that we can't use colors with 0 saturation? And as for neutralizers...I'm way lost. Haha.

i don't really know what it means, but it popped in my head and it sayed there.
It(might have) to do that my cousin died a couple of weeks ago, and that heart is him, flying away. or flying arround in a happier place.

This is mine so far..

The emotion that came into my head was Acceptance..

No idea why, i was doodling in Environmental Studies, and i drew a picture of a stickman poiting to the hills.. so i scanned it, and thought i could add it to this comp..



I'll add some background, and change his head :P

Err... I've done a series of pixels called "Feelings" a half a year ago but haven't released it to PJ. I assume it is what "new pixels" not?

leath, not to accuse you of anything, but it looks like that background was made in photoshop + your work already has 17 colors.

Accuse?
Is it ilegal? Nonetheless, you are absolutely, right. It was made in photoshop, but not only the background, the whole thing.
I didnt know it was ilegal. T_T
But we can turn that from accusing to "pointing it out". :D

Thanks for letting me know.

Ah, about the colors I counted 15 initally, and specified 16 on photoshop on the conversion, in case it blurred anything =(
5 Beiges for the penicl's body
3 Burple for the BG
3 Pinks for the rubber
2 Blues for the paper
2 (black and white)

If its ilegal, I withdraw my entry with an apology.
Though, I would like to learn why...
