*~~~~~ Pixel Art Contest! ~~~~~~*

Hello, just a fun mini contest for anyone interested in pixel art. You may have noticed the message icons you can set on posts, I found most of these in gif archives AND some are cool, others are just Ok.

I think it would be fun to get some new ones that are more relevant to this forum and what people are into.

SO the contest is simple, make pixel art icons and post them below! I'm not sure when the contest will end, but we can hold a poll on peoples favorites!

Pick any theme you wish, however we have a request for an Art icon and a Video Games icon, so try those if you need somewhere to start.

The final icons should be 32x32px gifs, animated or non-animated.

Examples:




Good Luck!  ;D

First of all, I am unable to refuse the call of pushing some old pixels. Secondly, maybe I'll think of a more original idea later that I want to execute on for the art icon, but for now, something a little derivative : P Don't suppose anyone else has other ideas/requests for icons? Coming up with topics is the hard part haha. Hoping and looking forward to seeing more pixels flow in.

(le art)
(bonus ozwomp just sort of showed up??)

@Easy_Breezy it's a small detail but I'm obsessed with the green hand in your standard icon. It adds so much more dimension to the idea than if it were just a flesh colored hand. Hopefully this isn't coming across as blithering nonsense haha.

[EDIT: spelling ._.]

HOLY frillin heck they are coming, its a strike!!!! This lil ozwomp gif is my new favorite thing ever  ;D

Ok some extra ideas for icons off the top of my head: 3d, website, gallery, mystical, hyperlink, resource, ancient, cute, music making.

Also I totally didn't see the green hand in that icon  :-* 

[EDIT: spelling ._.]
As someone with dyslexia, there is no judgment on this forum about spelling  :P

Threw together a few more icons based on some of the idea prompts :P

(Resources. I thought the idea of a tree full of books would be cute. It was...a lot harder to get this idea across than I expected LOL)

I'm so impressed by the quality of the submissions already! What software do you use to create icons?

Thanks m15o, that means a lot! It's been much fun trying to make icons that feel a bit retro, even if it isn't really a requirement.

It is with a bit of sorrow that I admit I am Photoshop stooge; as much as I've experimented with other software, I value the speed of creation which it affords, partially because it's been my mainstay for...ogh...probably my whole art "career" :defrag: XD
