Did you draw this in game maker? :D


Base is drawn in photoshop with pencil brush for details, Animations done in Aseprite!
If theres any tips you'd like feel free to ask how or what on my page!


All my first pixel art was done in gamemaker.

Sword in the Stone



I didn't have much time this week so I used the Pixaki Starry Night example image as a model for this gif.

With the exception of the mound of grass, I wound up creating everything from scratch anyway :(

Final Submission - switching to the umbrella gif

Leaving the other images up for some laughs

Sword in stone (2).gif


Looks great!
As always, you have until I choose the final three on Friday to make any edits.


Not gonna lie... This should be the final entry.
Regardless you'll make the top 3 with this entry...but the umbrella is hands down the best of all if them...it's wonderfully done, utilizes a fantastic style and has the perfect amount of humor mixed in as well.
If I were to edit it at all... I'd let him get rained on for just a second longer before poppin the brella


I respect your judgement @jonny-clearwater and will make the switch. Umbrella in the stone = Final Submission.

It's just so random and unplanned that it never occurred to me to actually submit it :)




Hahaha totally love this one.


this one is great man .. love it.

cause you know ... why not :)


note: updated post, cause @exyle had the great Idea to make the pommel a bitcoin.


🤤Incredibly... great.

Most excellent theme again man. Looking forward to all the great entries this one will inspire !


Should be a good one. Hope I can find the time to participate.

Here is my funny(maybe) entry :

A tribal man with his weapon(trishul) :


I always play as either a mage or a witch in any video game I get a chance to! So I wanted to make a plant magic weapon. Swords are so over done :3c

+40% Elemental Damage



I was hoping someone would go elemental/natural


Elemental is my favorite.

It will be nobody surprise that I created a legendary sword from a game. A game to which I have sacrificed days, weeks, even months of my life - obviously more then I should had. World of Warcraft.

So I present to you Ashbringer
The legendary holy sword originally wielded by Alexandros Mograine, then corrupted by the betrayal of his son Renault and then later cleansed. Then it came into the possession of one of the most beloved paladins Tirion Fordring and is now available to be used in game by Retribution paladins as their artifact weapon.

Is this allowed : take some image from pixabay and convert it to pixels?


Of course not
