During a discussion on Twitter about how bad we all were at pixel art (or art in general) the idea was had to start a weekly… something where budding artists (provided they were terrible) submitted small, quick pieces of pixel art under the hashtag PixelShit. Pekka over at PrisonScape took the lead and regularly updates the PrisonScape page with each week’s challenge rules.
This week’s rules are;
- 16×16 or 32×32 tiles
- A tile set
- 16 colours or fewer
This one was a lot of work, and I don’t even know if it properly fits together, because the tool I’m using doesn’t support tiling the sprites you make. I assume it does, because the colours are similar, but who knows. My favourite two tiles in this one are the torch and the drain. I really love the colouring of the water going in the drain and the shadow under the flickering torch fire.
What do you think? I’m eager for constructive criticism or pointers. Got any links to great pixel art resources? Post them in the comments, and don’t forget to check out all the other great #PixelShit entries!
