:iconknightplz: We are now in the voting stage. :iconknightplz:

What you must do: Create pixel piece that shows what the term "Fun in the Sun" means to you! Maybe it means going to the beach, no school, traveling, or getting sunburn! There is plenty of room for interpretation!

So make sure your piece is creative, that it stays within the guidelines and group rules, and have fun!

You may do a pixel of anything you like.

Please read the contest rules below

:star: Rules :star:

:bulletred::bulletred: Read This Blog Entry:…

:bulletred: Your submission MUST be neat. That means, if people are having a hard tome figuring what it is or if it looks sloppy, it is not neat and is not fit for submitting. If you submit a sloppy piece, it will be rejected but you can resubmit it once you have cleaned it up.

:bulletred: You may do any type of subject such as emotes, sprites, animations, etc. as long as it is pixel art.

:bulletred: It must follow the group rules…

:bulletred: You must submit it to the Contest folder, or it won't count as an entry. If you make a mistake in the folder, please contact me or another admin so it can be fixed.

:bulletred: You ARE allowed to use an artwork that you have already created as long as it fits the criteria.

:bulletred: Be creative and have fun!

The deadline right now is July 26th. This means you have one whole month to enter a piece. Do not procrastinate!

:star:New Gallery Folder:star:

Someone helpfully brought to my attention as to why a lot or people just submit their deviations to the Saraix folder instead of the correct folder. The submitter does not take care to select the correct folder, and thus submits their deviation to the first folder available, which happens to be the Saraix folder.

To combat this, a new "fake" folder has been added as the default folder, the " I want My Submission to be Rejected" folder. Of course no one wants their submission rejected, so people will be more aware of which folder their submissions go in. And if someone does ignore our group folders, at least we know what they want us to do with their incorrect submission :D

:star:New Co-Founder:star:

We have another Co-Founder, the lovely LacedStargazing who has been helping us get deviations voted in throughout the busy academic year! Feel free to congratulate her and ask/tell her anything concerning the group if you need to!

It's Contest Season!

Right now it's a tie between "Fun in the Sun" and "Color Scheme," and others suggest a mixture of both!

After a much-needed hiatus, it's time to have another contest! Now that Summer Break is upon us, many of us can dig up our social lives and free time from the grave :dead:
What we need now is to choose a theme to get this baby rolling, and then we can figure out prizes and deadlines.

:bulletgreen: What theme would you guys be interested in doing? :bulletgreen:

- Fun in the Sun
- Color Scheme
- Saraix-themed

:iconknightplz:New Member Must-Reads:iconknightplz:

You are encouraged to read these before you do anything else in the group:

- Group Rules…

- Submission Guide…

- Contest Issues…

:bulletpurple:Submitting to Featured:bulletpurple:

Members do not have permission to submit to the Featured folder. If you wish to submit something to Featured, you must submit it to the Gallery first (and to the right folder), and then send a note to the group with your request. If your request is granted your deviation will be moved to the Featured Folder by the Founder or a Co-Founder. Contributors can submit to featured after a vote.


- Join Requests to Contributors are open.
- If you want to be a Contributor you must:
~ Not be new to dA
~ Know the basics about pixel art, but you don't have to be a great artist
~ Must have some Group Admin experience
~ Must know and follow the Group Rules
~ Must be able to log on to dA at least once every three days
~ Must help with voting in submissions and voting for contest winners
~ Must help out with answering questions members might have
~ Must be responsible, helpful and friendly
- If you feel like you can't be a Contributor anymore, you may leave that group if you wish, but I would be really glad if you stayed as a Member than if you left altogether :)

:bulletpurple:Submitting to Favorites:bulletpurple:

- If you see pixel art you like that is not in our gallery, but is by a non-member, feel free to suggest it to the group favorites. All I ask is that you just be sure that it follows the rules.


- Contributors, please feel free vote on a submission if you see there needs to be a vote, especially on Featured works where we need many votes.
- If you vote to decline, please comment why you did so in the submission process.

Please don't forget we have a donation pool on my page, so if you would like to donate, please do :D

Is it just more or are more and more non-pixel arts sneaking in?

I have A question,When making a pixel art in Minecraft,it is cheating that I use a program that will convert the colors into Minecraft blocks? so that I'll spend less time in thinking what blocks to use and will stop making a color related problems?
