Pixel Competition #4 - Voting has ended!

Recommended Posts

OK, now, I've decided on something that should raise the number of entries; it's going to be a "general" theme. That is to say, there will be no specific theme, you can enter any piece of art you want, as long as it was made specifically for the competition. I think the reason we've had so few entries is because:

a. People think pixel art is too hard.

b. The theme has been too specific and limiting.

By making it an open competition, we can solve both of these problems; what's that, you say - you do spacescapes, but you think pixel art is too hard? Then do a PIXEL ART SPACESCAPE! Yeah, you heard me - see what I mean?

As for how the theme for #6 will be decided, I've yet to work that out. Either the winner of #4 chooses, the winner of #5 chooses, or the winners or #4 and #5 collaborate to come up with a theme.

So... thoughts?

That means we can make whatever we want for the next pixel art competition.

Thanks Rubrica!

I think you should give the winner of #5 a choice between choosing the next theme or allowing you to choose like you just did for #5.

Does this mean we can start our pixel art comp 5 entries now?

nestoflo: No, sorry, that was just an example of how the open theme will encourage new people to enter.

pdnnoob: Hang on, I'll set the new topic up.

EDIT: Comp 5 is up! I've given you a much longer deadline this time, we'll see how that goes. I'll leave this unlocked for you to carry on congratulating the participants, but I'm moving it to the Archives.
