Pixel Art


From July 4th to July 10th we've got another Pixel Art Week planned over at projecteducate. We currently only have enough contributions to fill four days but I am convinced we can extend this to a full week! :la:
That means we would need a good six more articles, tutorials, challenges, etc. If you are interested in making this happen, please leave a comment on this journal!

The article deadline would be June 28th, so relatively soon (totally my fault because work kept me way too busy and I overslept the approach of July :noes:) but I am determined to get this running like a boss. :stare: I have faith that with YOUR help we can still make this happen and bring to you a whole week of Pixel Art goodness!
Cheerleader
What we are looking for:

  • Tutorials
  • Informative articles
  • Mini-contests or challenges
  • Art features
  • Chat events (trivia, critique,...)
  • Debate topics
  • Interviews
  • Anything pixel art related you could think of! The more creative the better! :nod:

If you are interested in making this happen, simply leave a comment with your ideas on this jounal, or inbox me, ValaSedai, directly! :dummy:

Azura is alive!!!

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 16, 2016, 4:42 AM
Update: I just got probably the best call in my entire life. A woman found Azura, hiding in the tiny space behind a stone shed, probably scared in there by another cat. She'd been trying to get him out for a couple days already, and instantly called when she saw our flyers. He was really scared but came instantly when he sniffed my hand and his favourite treats. We are so relieved, you have no idea!!! Thank you again for all the sweet thoughts and words, I am convinced it helped!! <3


I'm a nervous wreck since a couple days now because my cat has been missing since Thursday morning. He's never gone for more than 10-15h in one go; we've been calling him regularly, went all around the neighbourhood several times, put up flyers, even got some really nice calls from people trying to help,...but nothing. If you've got pets you will understand how this makes me, and my fiancé too, feel. I'm going between nightmares, crying, short outbursts of hope, and just catatonic numbness.
And of course shit happens just when you need it, because I'm already stressed out as fuck because of driving lessons and a new job I'll be starting on Monday. You can imagine that the last bit of artistic spark I had left has been killed off for good.
That cat is my world, and I don't know what I'll do if he doesn't return...

I'm not religious, so I won't ask anyone to pray, but any good thoughts, any bit of hope you can spare for Azura...maybe it helps.

Syn's Dithering TutorialWhat is dithering?
Dithering is a pixel art process used to blend blocks of colour together or help apply a texture to a pixelled surface. Within emoticons it is most commonly used when making pixelled backgrounds, however it can be used in a number of other areas, e.g. massive emote bases, pixel objects etc. In this tutorial, we will focus on how 2 colours can be blended with dithering.
To break dithering down into simple terms, it is achieved by simply taking the colours from the two blocks of colour and placing individual pixels of each on the opposite side. This creates a region where the two colours merge together to create a more blended colour transition instead of a clear line between the two.
Dithering can seem like a complex process, but it's really not. Once you get the basic idea and technique, it's just all about practice and over time you'll learn how to apply it to a number of different situations. There are many dithering styles which can be

There's a New World Coming

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 25, 2016, 12:57 AM
Does it ever happen to you that you read an entire book in one single day? Well it just did to me again yesterday. It's happened twice before in the past, once with The Moving Toyshop by Edmund Crispin and quite recently with Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. However these two have 256 and 98 pages respectively. I think I've reached a new record by devouring 352 pages in less than 20h thanks to the talented Mr. Ransom Riggs. My interest was piqued when I saw this trailer; I knew right away that I had to get the books and read them before the movie was out. So that's one book down, two more to go.
Admittedly now that I've read the first volume, some changes that are visible in the trailer already bug me, but what with it being a Burton movie and not claiming to retell the story 100% but rather just being based on it, I still have high hopes. And I am just generally absolutely awful when it comes to book to movie adaptations. You don't wanna watch Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings with me, for I will, I promise you, not shut up for more than two minutes straight. :lol:

So what about you guys? Have you read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children? (no spoilers about volume 2 and 3, please, if you have ;) ) Are you excited about the movie? And how do you feel about book to movie adaptations? Are you as picky and demanding as I can be?
