Here as we know the contest's theme is EMOTIONS, now please we want you to give it your best shot, not sprite editing and fusions if ther'ye like just two pokemon but please most of all treat others with respect and if possible tell us if an entry is not related to the theme.

Thanks and good luck to all,

It doesn't have to not be a sprite to be pixel art. Pixel Art does not just mean a small drawing. It's defined by the method in which you make the piece.

ANd how is that possible. Sprites=Pixal Art.

If it's art with pixals, it's Pixal Art.
And you said "It better not. It's not even pixel art." about Jedite's entry. that's a put-down.

I would.

Allstories is correct, all that that entry is is a drawing conducted on paint. Nothing more.

Signomi
April 3rd, 2006, 01:59 AM
I concur, therefore the entry is disqualified.

Remember, a mere drawing on MS Paint isn't always classified pixel art.

Jedite1000
April 3rd, 2006, 02:34 AM
fine whatever i dont care,

that is how i do pixel art, everybody has different styles of pixel art

Allstories
April 3rd, 2006, 10:42 AM
But in your case that's like saying a pointillism painting is a style of crosshatching painting or something.

*types out a bunch of garble into Notepad*

That's how I do pixel art. Everybody has different styles of pixel art, so what does it matter if it doesn't fit the actual definition of the term? I mean, it has pixels. All the letters are made up of pixels. There, it's pixel art, according to your logic.

If you draw it on pixel level, that's pixel art, as in that either you placed the pixels in the outline one by one or you drew the outline with the Pencil tool and then zoomed in and cleaned the outline up one pixel at a time. If you haven't been working on it one pixel by one, it's a drawing, not pixel art.

Both Jedite's entry and Link's entry weren't Pixel Art. But I just forgot about Jedite's entry >_>

Yeah, those who have their entry disqualified, you are allowed to remake your entry and fix up the flaws that it got disqualified for. So it's never really too late.

Nope, looks just like another drawing (the pikachu looks drawn) on MSpaint... Heh, at least yours actually had some sprites in it though.

Haunter Master

well allstories won last months contest and it looks like a drawing on paint

Lokhlan
April 5th, 2006, 09:09 PM
The difference is, his wasn't a drawing on MSpaint, yours was. Yes, I know it may be hard to believe, but he did that whole peice pixel by pixel. Well, except maybe for the group of pixels that are the same color. That's what the paint bucket option is for. =D

Haunter Master
April 5th, 2006, 09:26 PM
its not an MSpaint drawing i actually did it pixel by pixel and what about the people that did it pixel by pixel like me and it comes out looking like a mspaint drawing its not fair not fair at all

Lokhlan
April 6th, 2006, 01:30 AM
Excuse me if I'm having trouble believing that. Look, even if you did draw that pikachu pixel by pixel (one little block at a time), then I'm sure you didn't pixel the lighting. I mean come on, you can tell you took your mouse and just dragged out those lines.

well im sorry im not the best artist ever ya know i worked hard on that and all you do is put it down you can all go to hell except for the people that work hard and still get disqualified i hate all of the people that disqualify people that work hard you make us feel like crap and you watch ill make you feel even worse i will do something so bad io cant say it you watch Pokecommunity is going DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off, lose the attitude; and drop the childish gestures you apparently like cracking up. And wishing evil upon others will do you no good what so ever. Main reason why such entries get disqualified is because they're not pixel art. Entrants who have had their entry disqualified for that reason ought to have known better from the beginning. But doesn't mean that they can't now look up how exactly to pixelise their entry and re-enter it. You are allowed to do that afterall. But for now, that was spam. Do it again and more action shall be dwelled upon you, you've been warned.

So you think that trying to pose a threat is somewhat a fact? Nothing like that ever gets you anywhere, it would just result in you being frowned upon by others for your immaturity. Perhaps try to revise through circumstances without getting an attitude in the way of your logic before even thinking about making such a foolish post again.

And I believe I've said this before. DO NOT post in the entry thread if you're not going to be posting an entry. We do have a discussion thread for a reason. Use it.

Shadow Grovyle: Your entry has been disqualified due to it not being pixel art. If you like, you may pixelise it and re-enter it. Remember, just because a picture was done on paint is not automatically classified as pixel art. If you are unsure of how exactly to pixelise or what the true definition of pixel art may be, refer to this source (http://www.answers.com/main/ntquery?s=pixel+art&gwp=13). Hope that helps.

What on earth are you talking about? My definition of pixel art is the same one on Wikipedia. Pixel art is defined by the method with which you create something, not the end result. There's no clever, formulaic way you can just make your crappy oekaki drawing into pixel art.

Haunter, your piece can barely be considered pixel art, if at all. It's blatantly evident that you put almost zero effort into fixing up the lines. It seems entirely probable that you merely scribbled it up with the pencil tool and colored it in. That's not sufficient. If you want to take it a step further and clean up the lines so it flows nicely and looks pleasing to the eye, go ahead.

Jedite, your entry is still not pixel art. C'mon, you're honestly not fooling anyone. 2-3 hours? Honestly, even if you did hand-pixel it, I really doubt it would take that long. You're just using the circle tool for the body and the line tool for the rest. That is STILL NOT PIXEL ART.

In my opinion, using things like the curved line tool and the regular line tool is all right, but only if used to make things convenient. It should not comprise almost the entire image. Jedite, Kris, and Shadow Grovyle are all guilty of that. Even if the latter two at least have some elements of pixel art, I'd consider it a serious detriment to their entries, at least in pixel art standards.

He doesn't say these things for his own enjoyment, he says them because certain people still cannot grasp the proper concept of what Pixel Art even is, and it's sad to know that they still don't. And no, I'm pretty sure he doesn't want you all disqualified. Infact, his entry is the only proper pixel art entry in the contest.

April 21st, 2006, 10:01 AM
I've started working on an entry. I'm less than halfway done, though.

I have an idea for the next contest's theme: No Pokemon, real or fake. That would stop people from submitting Pokemon sprite fusions.

And shouldn't fusions be disqualified unless you made both sprites/pixel arts you're fusing? It should be considered stealing, since fusions aren't creating sprites or pixel art, it's just combining ones that were already made by someone else. It would be like if my entry was the head from Allstories' Mario put over the head of Castiboy's ghost.

What program you used to make your entry is of no regard in any way. That doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure you've used MS Paint. Such a program doesn't give you any restriction what so ever to do a good entry. Infact, I made my entry on MS Paint. I use no other program.

And yes, yours only managed to be pixel art, therefore it still has it's place in the contest, but it still looks like just a drawing, which doesn't fulfill the actual concept of what pixel art is even about.

My entry was also my first pixel art. I've learned to add more shading to my art.

I guess everyone learns something from pixel art as they make it.

In my opinion, using things like the curved line tool and the regular line tool is all right, but only if used to make things convenient. It should not comprise almost the entire image. Jedite, Kris, and Shadow Grovyle are all guilty of that. Even if the latter two at least have some elements of pixel art, I'd consider it a serious detriment to their entries, at least in pixel art standards.
Hmm... I haven't thought about it that way before. Up until now, I've always hated the jagged edges you sometimes get while pixel-arting. I guess I should buck up and accept that jagged edges aren't necessarily a sign of poor spriting, but rather a sign of a hardcore pixel artist trying his best not to take short cuts. Now if I can only get past how obsessive compulsive I am about jaggies.

Ha ha, I said "jaggies"! *cough*

Oh, and btw, your entry is teh fiz nit Ally.

It's a sprite. But only a sprite.
Since when are sprites a bad thing?
Also, how come when people list which entries are TRUE pixel art, mine isn't included, It's a sprite, how is that not pixal art?

Allstories is right, Jedite your entry is nice, but you can tell that is some type of line and cirlce tool. The lines figit in some places. But it is nice. Allstories is funny. If i can finish my pixel art in 3 days i could enter it. Who knows, but i would like to see who actually wins.

sprites are not classified as pixel art, pixel art is when you draw it one pixel at a time by yourself, at least i'm sure. if you were to have made a whole new raichu sprite that would still be a sprite.

Actually, Sprites are a form of pixel art. Therefore it actually IS pixel art.

What is so hard about making smooth lines without using curve tools for it?

I never use curve tools, and I've still made a perfectly round-looking Voltorb pixel art. :/ It depends on how well you can clean up the outline to make it smooth.

I'm going to enter, by the way. I thought my entry wasn't turning out good enough, but I think I'll manage to finish it and make it look good. Even if not, I could enter one of my Eons...

It isn't potato chips you head exploded from frustration. I doubt i will get a place in this but hey i thought it was kinda funny and fit the mood you were in on the whole pixel art thing.

No not really on the head thing, but meh I really don't care. I thought it was kinda funny at the time i did it, and i kinda rushed it. (the whole head exploding part.) otherwise it will actually look better when i finish it. It was jsut kinda a spur of the moment thing. I really don't care if i get a low score on it anyway i always do.

Nothing.

Like I said, I'm OC (Obsessive Compulsive).

Just for the record, that's the first pixel art project I've ever used the curve tool for. It just seemed to make the project go a whole lot smoother. And even though I did use the curve tool, I pixeled over the curves pixel by pixel with different colors to create depth. I just figured I mentioned that since my entry was in the "Barely equals pixel art" category that is currently being discussed.
