Group Guidelines & Rules

Becoming a Member
If you are interested in joining our group you click the "Join this Group" at the big blue bar at the top of the page. A moderator will quickly review you for acceptance. When you are a member you then have access to submit work and suggest faves.

Submitting Work
:bulletred: We do not accept low-effort submissions. These are pieces that display a lack of a certain amount of detail and effort. This does not discriminate against beginner pixel artists though, because we will judge according to your level. For more information on pixel art, check out this forum.

:bulletred: We only accept genuine pixel art. This means work that is solely produced without aid of photoshop (or other programs like Sai, Painter...) filters, methods to create a 'pixelated' look, or editing pre-made sprites to make your own. Color reduction, the use of semi-transparency, and fonts that are not self-created are also not accepted. Images in formats other than .png and .gif will not be accepted (like .jpegs). This also means that backgrounds, shadows, textures, and any other non-pixel method will mostly likely not be accepted.

:bulletred: Artwork that is covered with watermarks will most likely be rejected.


:bulletblue: Must be pixel art, any other form of art will be denied. Tool shading is not classified in this group as pixel art, so if submitted it will be denied. Stolen, copied and "sliced" work is forbidden in this group. If found we will report your work. If you are unsure of what this means, click here for more details.
:bulletblue: We do not consider drawn work in a pixel format to be pixel art in the group, you must have a good understanding and experience of pixel art that shows through your work in order for us to accept your submissions
:bulletblue: Please have the submission be in a .gif or a .png. jpegs and other file formats should not submitted
:bulletblue: Select the correct category for your work. See below for category descriptions so you can determine the best place to put your work. If you are unsure, check the gallery to see what folder is best for your work.
:bulletblue: Only submit 1-2 works per week, otherwise we will deny your other submissions
:bulletblue: We reserve the right to move your work to other folders, deny your work if it is not appropriate for the group, and remove your work from the group if it becomes necessary
:bulletblue: These rules are subject to change.

Hello! Our group has grown so big, it is hard to manage, and the voting process is very long as we get many submissions daily! For that matter, pixel-artist's group is in need of new moderators and contributors who are able to help on the voting process, and perhaps help with new ideas for challenges, activities, etc.
If you are interested, please keep reading and reply to this post by mentioning you would like to be part of the group. Just make sure you fulfill all of these requisites:

:bulletblue: A constant deviant, someone that  goes on deviantart on a regular basis. Doesn't have to be everyday but at least enough to check on the group, several times a week.

:bulletblue: An experienced deviant and pixel artist. I need someone that knows deviantart well enough to not have any problems with it and also someone that has the experience of doing pixel art. I'm not asking for someone amazingly good at pixel art, but this is a pixel art club.. so I'd prefer the person to how to do it themselves.

:bulletblue: Easy to contact and communicate with. I should be able to contact the mods very easily, either through deviantart, aim, email, whatever. As long as I can talk with you easily and keep in check, that's very important.

:bulletblue: Enjoy the job! Don't be a moderator if you don't like it. You have responsibilities as one and if you won't fulfill them then don't try being a moderator. I want someone that likes pixel art as much as I do to keep a club up like this for it.

So those are the things that I'm looking for. Here's what you will be doing as a moderator if you're chosen:

:bulletred: Adding members to the member list
:bulletred: Uploading submissions to the gallery
:bulletred: Organizing the gallery into their belonging categories
:bulletred: Answering questions from members and other deviants
:bulletred: Favoriting work of pixel artists occasionally
:bulletred: Featuring sites/clubs if accepted for featuring

Hi everybody. I've a question:
I'm relatively new of the pixel-art world, and for now i'm using just photoshop, but i've also paint tool sai, fireworks & obviously paint :lol: and now i would like to know what program/s you're using for yours works, especially for animations. Because i don't know which i should use to better results.

Thanks to you all, 
and sorry if i mustn't write here my question.

I use Paintdotnet for my pixel art, and while it's not the best way of doing it, I export my individual frames to a program called PhotoScape for my animations.
matomiki Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2016
I tend to use paint tool sai and then export the png files to gimp for animation ^^. It's relatively easy once you get the hang of it!

Hi, recently I tried submitting a picture, Pika Pika~ by gretellu , but it got declined.
I was just wondering for future references for why it got declined or if I submitted to the wrong folder ^^
iLosm Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Student Digital Artist
Hey! Sorry for the late reply, but...
We tend to not accept pieces with non-pixel art effects (in this case, the pinkish glow effect added around the borders) blocking the main focal point, as we feel it kinda doesn't do the actual *pixel art* itself justice.

Sorry. :S
