30 Days of Pixels Challenge


Hi Newgrounds family! <3
I have a creative block and I become extremly lazy.
So I need your help, folks!
I'm going to post a new pixel image per day for a month.To make this task even more difficult I ask you to give themes for images.It can be anything! For example: "Giant satanic god-pig-bull with tentacles".
The goal of the challenge: improve my drawing skill.
I'll choose best of your suggestions, make a plan and start posting.
Thank you for your attention!

You can write themes here, on my tumblr, twitter or instagram.

I love the art here! ❤️

An awesome incentive for artful improvement, and what a work of art to kick it off! Very nicely drawn, and entirely symmetric too. I suppose for art like this you draw half and then mirror it? Or maybe there's a filter/program to automatically mirror even while you draw? It looks beastly.

As for ideas... how about a fuzzy cloud-covered blue and green sphere of planet Earth, and the neck/head of a giraffe popping through this blanket of fuzz, reaching into interstellar space to gaze at stars and maybe some funky alien vessel passing by? My first thought was a pixel-perfect scene out of the classic Doom games, a collage of blood and gore with all the monsters of the game reaching out with gleaming fangs and hands, spitting fireballs and plasma, the main character cowering in fear under this overpowering force of evil, the grand Cyberdemon a menacing siolhouette towering behind all other monsters.... but maybe that'd be too much? Would be incredibly awesome to see, though. Looking forward to what great creative work this project might procure!


ArcadeHero responds:

Thanks a lot CD!
It was a sketch for a pixel contest. It isn't finished.
(I know how bad looks a symmetry in works, but it was something like sketch ;( )
I'll try to draw something of your ideas! It's looking very awesome!

There's only one thing that truly deserves to be drawn: mecha kitty of death in the middle of an awesome guitar solo. Btw, nice pixel art you've got here ^^.

ArcadeHero responds:

Thanks a lot man!
I'll try :D
