Community Pixel Project

Welcome to the PMC Community Pixel Project!

Planet Minecraft has many places where pixel art is a great addition from profile decorations to content aesthetics.

Minecraft attracts many pixel art appreciators to the game, and a lot of members on PMC enjoy making skins, textures and other forms of pixel artworks. Pixel art has a natural home here. We think it will be fun to create decorative pixel art together while improving our pixel placing skills, sharing tips and resources and ultimately help with everyone's content & profile presentation options.

Typically anything you find online including pixel art is not free to use and/or credit must understandably accompany the art. We fully respect that but it can be challenging to improve the aesthetics of your posts with pixel art while also explicitly crediting each. It can also be challenging to find suitable pixel art in the first place.

So, we want to work together to create a library of pixel art available for the PMC community to use freely in our posts & profile pages. Fresh pixels for everyone!

The PMC library of pixel art will give full credit to contributors and the BBCODE for the artwork will by default link to where credit can be found. Currently, we're going to maintain this thread but as the library grows, we plan to develop an interactive section on the site that will make it easy to find & filter pixel art for different purposes in our community.



Round 1 : Pixel Art Dividers!


For the first round of the pixel project, we'll focus on creating pixel dividers! A divider is a horizontal decoration, which can be used for separating content. See the pixel art divider below our thread intro doing its job? Using them can add a nice creative touch to your wall / forum / blog posts, submission descriptions, custom widgets and the about section on your profile! They can help readers know when one topic ends and another begins or simply because they are simply fun to add.

Dividers can be animated or static, wiggle or no wiggle, pixels are pixelated!

Examples: Have a look at PMC's wallpost weeklys, _Phrozenbit_'s profile page and DinowCookie's Secret Santa event to see how dividers can be used to make a text more fun looking.



How to create pixel art

Pixel art is the art of using pixels as the building blocks of creating artwork. The typically low resolution format, allows careful placement of every pixel (color) producing art that is uniquely crisp and purposeful. Some might call it retro or old school graphics but most can appreciate it as a unique timeless art form. It's also an approachable form of art for novices while, like most things, it will take a lifetime to master.

Don't worry if you have not made pixel art before! Everyone starts somewhere, maybe it's here for you. We're hoping this project inspires novice pixel artists to try it out and attracts advanced pixel artists to show us how it's done in the form of sharing work, resources & helping others.

PROGRAMS & TOOLS
You can make pixel art in most image editing software, but pixel art is a unique art form and we recommend:

RESOURCES & TUTORIALS
There's a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to high quality pixel art. Fortunately, like most art forms, you can choose to dabble or dig deeper. It all depends on what your trying to accomplish and of course your available time and motivation.
Feel free to suggest additional tools, resources for pixel art and help others in this project.



How to contribute?

To contribute a pixel art divider to the Pixel Project, create one and post in comment to this forum thread! We will then add it to the Pixel Project database with its details and credit to you!

RULES & GUIDELINES
  • Submit as many dividers as you want!
  • Dividers can be anything, it does not need to be Minecraft themed per say.
  • Submitted dividers must be original content made by you.
  • Your divider must be a .png or .gif with a transparent background.
  • If you blow up (resize) your divider, make sure it doesn't get blurry!
  • Make something that would fit within a text nicely, don't make dividers that are too big/bulky.
CONTRIBUTING TO THE PROJECT

  • Only post if you agree to allow any member of PMC to freely use your artwork on PlanetMinecraft.com
  • If you'd like to afford other use allowances, use the POC system outlined in the contributed pixel art section below.

Added another 7. We've already out grown the thread format. I'll need to make at least a simple dedicated separate page soon.

Pixel Artists, please note the general sizes of the accepted dividers above and try to aim for around that scale when submitting your final artwork. I've been resizing the largest and while it's a simple process the time adds up. Thanks!

It means people have to mention your name when they use your divider on another website.
On PMC credit will be accounted for because the BBcode links refer back to this thread where credit can be found! :)

Yes, you right-click the image and choose "Copy image address", then enter that in your text editor by clicking the Insert/edit image button and pasting the link there 😊

You downloaded it to your personal files on your computer. To get an image link, you first have to upload it to the internet again. You can upload to imgur.com , and make an image url from there.

How do you make pixel art that moves or changes color?

Meet a pixel llama, an animated gif, made by Patrick on piskelapp.com

An animated gif loops through multiple frames of pixel art. Each frame is a snapshot of a different moment in time during this llama's hop. When played in real time, it looks like he's hopping!

Here's the pixel llama in a free online pixel editor where you can see every frame.

Take some time to see how it's done, try making some changes to see how it affects his animation. When you're ready to create your own, click "Create Sprite" in the top right of the piskelapp editor.

If you want make an animation that changing colors:
1) Create the first frame of pixel art
2) Hover over the left preview icon of your frame and click "Duplicate this frame"
3) Change the color on the new frame.
