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;
- 32×32 up to 128×128 image
- A nightmare
- 16 colours or fewer
This time I was stumped. I’m not a fan of scary movies, horror games or scary fiction. Nor have I even had a nightmare in ages. I figured I’d try to do a more detailed Pacman ghost. I accidentally did GhostBusters’ Slimer.
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!
