:iconknightplz: Entries are now Closed, and we are in the judging stage. :iconknightplz:

What you must do: Create a mascot for the group! This group needs one, don't you think? The special guidelines for this contest are:
- The mascot must be "palace-themed." For example, you could make a knight emote, a dragon, a moving castle, and so on.
- The mascot must be made in pixel art, not oekaki pixels. WHat is an oekaki pixel? Go here thepixelpalace.deviantart.com/…
- The deviation cannot be over 100x100 pixels, and a minimum of 50x50 is recommended, but not required.

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 rules, some things have been changed.

:star: Rules :star:

:bulletred::bulletred: Read This Blog Entry: thepixelpalace.deviantart.com/…

:bulletred: You 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 thepixelpalace.deviantart.com/…

: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 mod 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 March 10th. This means you have more than one whole month to enter a piece. Do not procrastinate!

:star:And thanks to people buying feature slots and donating to the group, the the the number of prize points have been raised for each winner! If you would like to buy a feature slot, please go here: thepixelpalace.deviantart.com/…
If you would like to just donate to the group, the donation pool is on my page.

(these - [link]) If the winners would want to claim that is, if not is fine. :giggle: I offer all the same just in case. :meow: I just ask once the winners are declared please send me a note to inform e so when/if they reach out to me to claim their prize I know they are the ones who truly deserve it. :meow:

Wow, that is a lot! Mmm, I feel that if you do this then the prizes for this contest will be waaaay imbalanced vs. other contests. Sounds weird but...you get what I mean?

Do you think you could contribute your awesome prizes for the next contest instead of this one?

Well this is a pixel-based group. It has to be. What kind of work did you want to do exactly..?

No, it has to be pixel art. I was thinking that afterwards, when the mascot is finally chosen, we will have a contest to draw the mascot, and drawing and pixel art will be allowed. But for the actual mascot contest, it has to be pixel art, just like the other contests.

I do not know if I should participate, I'm not so good with pixelart yet T_T and the stakes for me are a little to high... so maybe I'll pass this contest srry :(

Stakes...? What are you going to lose? :O

:icontintjemadelintje101:
TintjeMadelintje101 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
:giggle: actually nothing to lose but more likely I know I can't fulfil rule 1 'You 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.' I may be failing at the icon, that's because I'm not so good yet at pixel art ^_^

Maybe another contest in the future... or maybe this one I don't know for sure, maybe I'll give it a shot but I'll think about it (mainly I don't wanna do this because my experiance in pixel art is not so advanced yet)

I do have a question concerning this contet since I've just stalked some other contests and most of them had a rule about sending in more than one piece of work - so what about this context? If i have, or example, more than one idea in mind, do I have to chose on of them or is it possible to send in more than one piece?
Reply
:iconinemiset:
Inemiset Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
We only accept one piece per participant, so we usually urge people to choose the piece they think is the best and submit it :)
