TheHelper Pixel Picture Project

Cheddar

This is the way it was meant to be.
May or may have not been blatantly stolen from this thread.

The premise is simple, each member draws a small section of a larger image and eventualy we will have a large image made by many people.

Rules

  • Each square is 50 x 50 pixels;
  • No two adjacent squares can be made by the same person (horizontaly, vertically or diagonally);
  • An attempt must be made to keep the image flowing;
  • The final image will be 502 x 502 pixels (10 blocks by 10 blocks plus a 1px border);
  • Do NOT go over someone else's square or edit anyone else's work. You may edit a square you've made but only for minor fixes. The only exception to this rule is to edit an obvious mistake out of someone's square (making their square too small, overlapping another square slightly, etc).

Tips

  • You can use any program you like, but I'd recomment MSPaint, it's a simple program that anyone can use and suprisingly versatile;
  • Anyone can join! Even if you have no artistic skills then come and have a go. It is a 50x50 square. The advantages of this is that, if you don't like how it turns out, someone else can build on the square next to it and turn your mess into part of something great;
  • When saving your file, save it as a PNG file, that way you keep ALL of the quality and the colours and lines aren't blurred or distorted. Some image hosting sites seem to convert BMPs into JPEGs, if this happens then use http://imageshack.us instead. I use tinypic.com, but whatever floats your boat.

A GIF with all the current frames:

The change in lightning is caused by the usage of different editors. Also, the GIF might not be up to date.

When the entire grid is completed I will try to remove any artifacts caused by lossy file types and I will also make a GIF with uniform lightning, using only the squares in the final image.

There are currently 26 free spots, we're close :D.

Hehe, no diagonals! I made that mistake too with the subway cart, but I moved it over. Since you can't do that with yours, I'm sure no one will mind a mistake. ;)

This is looking pretty cool.
I think the stickman part ruins the cartooness though, :p

With the sky already seen, looks like we're gonna have some space adventures at the top, ^^

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
