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, check [link]

: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! Pix3M here. Lately, we have been receiving a fair number of group notes asking if there are anyone available for their projects.

However, we aren't the people to poke for artists to tag along for your projects. We are a loose collection of people who mostly accepts (and sometimes decline) incoming requests from other artists, to add their artwork to our group and to share to everyone who watches this group.

Instead, I would personally recommend looking to these sites to search for a pixel artist. You may also post about your projects on those sites and see if people can shoot you emails! (aka Pixelation), is a site dedicated to pixel art as an artform. There are various portfolios posted by various artists:…

PixelJoint is another platform of pixel artists, whom people also post portfolios and post about their own projects:…

Tigsource is another community dedicated to indie games rather than being specific to the pixel art artform. We may also consider this site to search for peeps to tag along:…

There are likely many more sites out there, but these are the ones I know. If you know other good sites for finding pixel artists for various projects, let us know in the comments section!

Happy hunting!

I used photoshop for this one, but that was just because of the layers, pretty much everything else was done with paint, does that count as something that would be declined on the group?

Looks good to me! Nod 

Photoshop is fine, by the way, as long as you use pixel art-friendly tools.

Nothing against the piece, but I don't really consider it to be pixel art. Sweating a little... It's more just normal digital art without any proper anti-aliasing. :( (Sad) 

If you'd like to learn a bit more about what pixel art is, allow me to direct you to the ultimate pixel art tutorial:…
