Hi pretty pixels!
Welcome to Pixel by Pixel hosted by cookie and els!
This is a weekly article contest where you get to create a form of pixel art according to the weekly theme. This is the place for all gfx, badges, room ads, custom avatar art, custom furni, and anything pixel art related, where you can showcase your creativity!
Original work only. We will be checking every artwork as they are submitted. If plagiarism is found you will be banned from entering the competition.
Badges, custom furni, room ads, custom avatars, banners, gfx, and anything pixel art related are all permitted forms of art that you can submit.
No direct recolors of existing furni. If you plan on recoloring, at least customize the design of the furni.
Poor quality images will not be judged.
You must submit your piece through an imgur or tumblr link.
If the scores are tied, we will use a randomiser to determine who receives which place.
Please note more rules may be added in the future!
A special Pixel by Pixel Showcase room located in the staff picks section of the navigator will showcase the winning pixel art! Winning pixel art will stay on display for 3 weeks, along with other winners! Make sure to stop on by and invite your friends to admire the artwork!
1st - 50,000 credits, 500 diamonds
2nd - 40,000 credits, 400 diamonds
3rd - 30,000 credits, 300 diamonds
Along with the prizes above, winners will get to choose which badge they get from the badges below!
We’d like to introduce our NEW badge prizes! We will be retiring our paint buckets and paint palette badges and replacing them with these new and improved crayon themed badges!
These Pixel by Pixel crayon badges will be available to NEXT WEEK’s winners!
To keep things fair, we will be grading everyone’s artwork based on a rubric we’ve made! There are 5 categories you can earn up to 5 points in for a total of 25 points. The person with the highest score every week is the winner!
We will be linking 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place’s rubrics every week so that winners have a chance at looking at the constructive criticism left and to see what they scored in each category.
Check out the rubric here.
Didn’t place but are still curious what we graded you/what constructive criticism we provided?
Send us a message on discord (thelma#0550 & elle#3778) and we will happily send you your graded rubric!
First, we want to thank everyone who submitted their artwork! Every single piece of art was unique and the artists were full of talent! We encourage you to submit again even if you didn’t place this week!
Without further ado, let’s announce the winners! The winners are...

Occasionally on Pixel by Pixel there will be themes that are gfx specific. What we mean by this is that we might just ask specifically for banners one week, or badges, or avatars! When a theme is gfx specific we will state it here.
The theme for this week is…
This theme is NOT gfx specific!
