Pix2Gether Anniversary


Last year, Camille Unknown started something called "Pix Together", a monthly event where 3 themes are given (sometimes with constraints like 1 bit for the 10th edition) and people who want to join in on the fun have to make a pixelart/pixel painting piece that sticks to at least one of the three themes.

My first try at it was this thingy, and I already had a lot of fun making it, but I absolutely had to join when they announced the theme of the anniversary edition. The theme was a 100x100/150x150 or 200x200 px parcel with a house and a 32x32-ish (give or take one pixel) character. We also had to use the juice56 palette and use this palette's black color (#000005) for our outlines.

I'd like to give a ginormous thanks to the entire Camily discord server for being so nice in general, and to the whole moderation team made up of extremely talented people : @Daaweed, Nop, Haelored, Momi, Manudog, and of course Camille himself. I'm probably forgetting some people here, and I'm very sorry if I do, but I heavily encourage everyone to check the pix together twitter account, and the pixtogether hashtag on twitter as well as the accounts I just linked.

Lastly, one last huge thanks to Nop and Camille for allowing me to join late because I forgot to sign up like an idiot; I'm extremely grateful for that.


As you can see, I limited myself to 4 colors, mainly because I'm a bit stupid, but also because I enjoy working with limited palettes.

You might also notice that the character was already present in one of my previous pieces, and there's a good chance she will come back into more of my projects in the future.

Oh, and the original version used a dark blue outline (#0f0f69) because I forgot to read the restrictions correctly.

Thank you very much!

Lovely palette! Almost distracted me from seeing the house for what it actually was. So cute!

DeadkatNG responds:

Thanks! I had a lot of fun using the juice56 palette with a 4 colours restrictions! Don't forget to check out the palette with the link I gave in the description or reeljoos' accounts on twitter/instagram if you want to see more from the person who made it!

The pretty colors took me off guard for a moment, but its fucking amazing!! The black details are great and they bring out the haunted house part, I love it >:3

DeadkatNG responds:

Hehe, Thank you so much! The original version had dark blue outlines but I had to switch to (almost) pure black because of the event's restrictions. Don't forget to check out the palette with the link I gave or reeljoos' accounts on instagram/twitter (the person who made the juice56 palette) for more pretty colours!

DeadkatNG responds:

DeadkatNG responds:
