long time no see, I am currently pretty busy going to work and don’t have much time for Pokitto, even though I am still slowly working on my shooter.
Anyways… my online friend Modanung has started an interesting experiment in collaborative pixel art, but so far we’re the only two people working on it. It’s really just for fun, you don’t have to be a good artist to take part, we just need people to donate some pixels You may put a minute in it or many hours, it’s up to you.
You can do any edits you want, we don’t like rules, just do something and see where it leads. The only things that have to be noted are:
- The piece is under CC0 (public domain), hosted on Wikimedia Commons, so whatever you contribute you put into public domain, AND you mustn’t put in any copyrighted (even free licensed) material! So no Pokémon or movie characters etc., everything has to be public domain. Don’t copy paste other people’s work, just think of your own idea and draw it. It’s OK if it’s lame, others can improve it. Just have fun.
- Try to keep it pixel art. We currently have a 38 color palette for the piece. You can edit the palette, add or take away colors, but you shouldn’t ignore the palette or use full RGB (in SW like GIMP it’s good to switch to indexed color mode).
- You can change the size of the picture, but we’ve currently settled on this resolution, so without a very good reason please rather don’t
