Xodiak (Jun 27, 2005)
I decided to start the collaboration! A different artist draws on each of the 30 64x64 pixels squares.

I used PaintBBS because it is the simplest and easiest applet for small sized drawings. I hope it does not cause many problems! If someone does not understand something about the program I can explain.

Also it is recommended that every artist finishes the picture in a single version.
If you need to cancel a revision, please do not forget to click "Cancel Revision" to make sure the picture is not unintentionally locked.

Did my little box. Omfg is that a small box. x___x; I was going to do pixel art, but I'm pixel art impaired.
mazi (Jun 27, 2005)
im pixel art imparied too. i dont think i can do it that small :/ but you guys both seem to have rocked it.
Hakkai (Jun 27, 2005)
S'not too hard. =3 It's certainly a challenge! I zoomed in ALOT to draw. x___x; Thats the only tip I can give you.
Punky (edited Jun 27, 2005)
i love pixel art, i just suck at it. :D My box will have a nighttime landscape thingy, with a city just visible in the back.
kejoco (Jun 27, 2005)
I think this will be cool at the end trying to figure out who did what

Looks great so far! I think I'll do an iris or an eye. Let's just hope I won't ruin it. ^^;

**edit** Well, later. It's locked right now.
Cordelia_Pink (Jun 27, 2005)
That's another interesting icon pic, Xodiak. I knew instantly who did what box. lol Nice little icon too, Hakkai. I only see a lot of black, Punky. But i"m sure it's jsut as great. Well, keep it up. I think I'll pass for this collab and let other people take part in it though too.

Space dude on Mars.
Punky (edited Jun 27, 2005)
I love your little space dude. Beats the crap out of my square. :D
Cordelia: Yeah, I realized that its really hard to see mine. I can see blue with a few swirls, which i did do, but the teensy skyscrapers are hard to see.
edit: now, I think it looks more like underwater. :P

Tanks. This is coming out really cool. Great idea on XOD's part. The collab to end all collabs. Twas fun.
Pence (Jun 28, 2005)
This is looking so cool! question: Are we going in a certain order or can we just make our square when ever it's open?
Cianteed (Jun 28, 2005)
Naw, once your added you can add yours whenever its not being used, and you can go where ever you like - to my understanding.

Do not worry, if you like the idea we can make another one sometime, an even bigger if you desire.
Also, I would like to remind you to not forget to unlock the picture every time after you decide to cancel a revision...
Right now it is locked by Maiko who is away for 12 hours and I unlock it, I hope that does not cause problems.
By the way, Maiko is a super artist, hehe! Her drawings are sexy! >;D
I think the picture looks extremely great so far! >:)
