Please sticky this, and unstick last month's contest.

Allstories & Vaati-san PRESENT:



Yes, it's that time, ladies and gentlemen. It's time for this month's Pixel Art Contest. This month is a little different, however.

This month, instead of letting people make garbage pixel art all willy-nilly, all entries will be required to adhere to a single 7-color palette. No more, no less, and you have to use the following palette:

Obviously, you don't have to use that particular size for your entry, but you must use those colors.


TIP: If you're concerned, you can save the above image, keeping it in GIF format, and edit it in Paint. That way, you'll only be able to use the colors available.

  • Your entry must be scratch-only. No recolors, no use of existing sprites, NO SPRITE THEFT.
  • No JPG artifacts. Your entry must be PNG or GIF. Or, if your absolutely cannot save it as one of those formats, you can use BMP.
  • No old work. This has to be new stuff. Although with the restricted palette that sort of goes without saying.
  • One entry per person.
  • Only entries may go in this thread. Discussion is reserved for the Discussion thread.
This month's theme is, well...


Since this is the first time anyone has done a contest like this, we're not gonna add any extra parameters. Have fun, kids!

Okay, here's mine. I figured that with a theme like this, it would be interesting to try to convey colorfulness like in a sunset through only those seven colors.

I might be tweaking the image, so don't like save it right after you see it or something.

My hands officially hurt after doing all that dithering. x.x

Still not going to sprite for your fangame. Sorry, but I don't really sprite or give out permission for people to use my fake Pokémon anymore.

Sigh, I have no chance.

I created this Mudkip pixel by pixel and to me, it looks a lot like the original sprite so I changed the fin shape as well as the tail and a few other things, wow it took forever! Anyways, good luck to everyone

I think this is really good considering my first try. I tried some noob AAing on the clothes and dithering to make a nice mid-tone hope it worked.

Please click all on profiles please

Here's my entry. I worked a long time to get it right, so I hope you like it.

A pixelart of an ekans in a... jar thing. I worked a very long time on the dithering and shading.

Good luck to everyone!
