Thank you two Zultin and Tacodip for their two submissions, and thank you to those who tried as well.

Some clearification:

  • Make pixel art on an HD skin instead of like you normally would on a new document on paint.net or photoshop or w/e you use
  • Use a software such as MCSkin3D to create the pixel art on the skin.


The skin template for the contest:
TbtpIpng(256x128)

vKOWpng (200x100)

So, I got to thinking about how I've gotten really into HD skins and all recently and how there's a lot of people getting into pixel art and it got me thinking "Why not do an HD skin pixel art contest?"

What is an HD skin pixel art contest? Simple. Just take an HD skin like my Garo's Mask Link skin, and instead of making a "normal" looking skin, create a pixel art on the skin. Sounds simple, right? Well, it may sound like it to some but it can be a bit of a real challenge for others.

So, here's how it's gonna work. Much like with my last skin contest (which is currently still under way with judging), it's gonna be a skin contest, just with HD skins and pixel art. It can be anything you want it to be of, there are no limits other than what your imagination can come up with and the PMC posting rules as well.

The end date will be set as the 1st of October (This may be extended however).


Rules:
  1. Has to still follow the PMC submission guidelines.
  2. Has to be an HD skin with your own pixel art made on it.
  3. The skin has to be entirely covered (meaning, no clear spaces and no white space, aka unused spaced).
  4. You must provide screenshots from MCSkin3D (or other skin previewers) showing all exposed sides of the skin (i.e. top, bottom, left, right, front, and back. It would also be highly appreciated if you included diagonal shots as well showing the left and front, left and back, right and back, and so on in the same shot if you have pixel art that overlaps a corner of the skin.)
  5. There are no limits as to what you can create, as long as they follow the PMC guidelines.
  6. Be sure to comment below allowing me to know all of who are wanting to join the contest.
  7. Has to use the one of the two skin resolutions that're included above. (in the picture).
  8. Just have fun and create all that you want to.

Other Information
  • There are no judges this time.
  • The voting will take place in the forums area just like the last one.
  • I'm still debating on when the end of this will be.

Could you clarify what constitutes a "pixel art" HD skin?

Does it have to be a landscape-type drawing, or is "pixel art" basically your way of saying "make it original/don't use googled images"?

IE, if I was to use vectors or any tool other than a 1-pixel brush, would it be disqualified?
