Although if you make a fairly small image, it doesn't take too long.

I'm no design expert, but that logo really needs a redesign. Like maybe a pixel-based text? To be honest, it I feel including that in any design would detract from the gestalt appeal of the submission.

I do agree with ya there, that is why I mentioned earlier if anyone would be willing to give the logo a go. If so email me at pfordwebb@gmail.com or post it in this blog.

I will give the logo another shot, if no one does it but I would appreciate it if someone would like to do it. Been busy with school just finishing with it soon, so its crunch time. :)

I loves me some clever nostalgic pixel art, can't wait to see what y'all come up with, square by awesome square.

Manupix

What you guys think of this? Feel free to edit!

(this is the 300% version for good visibility)

Looks great. I like the one without the drop shadow.

Manupix

thanks, I agree =)

Improved version:

micheleficeli

I'd like to take part in this. Not so sure how to make pixel art (just use a super low pixel density?), since i've never tried, but i'll search for some tutorial. Also, i like Manupix logo, but there could may be added "pixel art challenge".

Manupix

Not so sure how to make pixel art

Use only tools that you can have 100% pixel-level control with: pencil tool (1x1 or more), paint bucket, rectangular selection, etc. Exercise strong color restraint / palette control. Strict limit of 256 colors (indexed color mode), but even that is considered an awful lot. 32 colors is fine for De-activate all softness features: feathering, anti-aliasing, etc. Gradients, filters, semi-transparency are no-no.

Manupix

Aaaah! Sent too soon! Hate that.

again:

Exercise strong color restraint / palette control. Strict limit of 256 colors (indexed color mode), but even that is considered an awful lot. 32 colors is fine for complex scenes, 8 color is a nice challenge for simpler stuff.

Manupix

Good places to lurk for anything pixel:

Pixeljoint and its forum; Pixelation.

Nice thing about both places is the mix of all talent levels, from 13 yr old gamer newb to the best pros in town.

Manupix

I'd suggest contestants to submit their stuff on Pixeljoint too! I certainly will. Don't use these places for promotion though, you'll get flamed! XD

32 colors is fine for complex scenes, 8 color is a nice challenge for simpler stuff.

That was rather stupid to say. It's got nothing to do with 'simple' or 'complex', it's just a choice. Also the 8 color limit on T'less solves the problem, right (9 with the tee color).

There is also some great hybrid stuff, like Superbrothers or Jude Buffum.

Thanks for the links Manupix! Great inspiration for a pixel beginner like me.

Manupix

You're welcome! =)

there could may be added "pixel art challenge". That would be twice 'pixel', no? How about this:

micheleficeli

^It's cool! Also many thanks on the pixel art tips!

bump :D

Manupix

Other logo sizes in case someone needs them: x1 and x2

All of them are transparent .png

If you need to upsize them while keeping them sharp, better start from the x1 and resize it by an integer factor, nearest neighbor only!

Also I forgot this, should be obvious anyway: never ever save pixel-art as jpeg!!! It'd be totally screwed up. Gif and png are fine.

Let's get started! =)

Oh I forgot about this already! I'll definitely have to squeeze this in between my trina turk patterns :D
