This forum neats some more salsa with it's nachos and cheese...so im starting up my own little contest!
- Graphic can be done with any program (providing YOUR actually doing the pixel art! Judges will determine this!)
- Max size: 500*500 pixels, or max upload quota (whichever comes first)
- You must provide on the side, the pixels you used in your artwork. (Like all the shades of the colors you used...the is a reason behind this.)
- Deadline: Febuary 12 (This gives like over 2 weeks.)
- Pretty much all forms of pixel artwork can be used, including (and especially) isometric
- images will have a much better chance of winning if they include color. (The more shades of color you use, the better it looks.)
- I stress, include a small palette of the pixel shades you used...this is needed in the handin of your artwork
Rewards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Winners:
- Bits, fame, glory, and post on main page (for 1st place winner ONLY) declaring their winning the contest
Punishment for Plagiarising/ Artwork Stealing:
- minus LOTS of bits, possible LAMER rating...and a report to the FBI claiming you were looking at kiddie porn.... (joking!)
So get started on your pixel artwork soon, after the 12th, no more entries will be accepted. The judges will be assigned later, probably me, Amailer, and some other mods and/or admins.
Good luck to all of you!!

- NO TOOLS BUT YOUR PIXELS!!
Refer to http://www.compsci.ca/v2/viewtopic.php?t=2872 and download the tutorial to understand what I mean. There is to be no tool used...just primitive 2D pixel art...such as the drawing I attached (that I made for th is example) But with yours, attach a little pallete showing the different pixel shades you used. And NO STEALING MY PIC! Or I sue you!

Yeah, but who would be so childish to Plagiarise, like really, there would be no point to it, because you would know that you did plagiarise, and your conscience wouldn't be clear, THAT YOU CHEATED. Anyway...
