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!
We are VERY excited to announce a special MONTH LONG competition we will be hosting in celebration of our upcoming 50th Pixel by Pixel article!
The ENTIRE article is revamped for this special competition, so check out the guidelines, prizes, etc!
There is now only ONE week left to submit your article of clothing.
You’ve asked for it, and we’re giving it to you! ;)
That’s right! We will be hosting a Fashion Design Competition with the 1st place winner’s submission being uploaded onto the hotel for all users to wear and admire! Don’t squander this opportunity! This is your ONE shot to get your own custom work uploaded to the hotel!
PLEASE READ THE GUIDELINES UNDERNEATH THE MONTH LONG PLAN!
Now, how will this be one month long you ask?
Pixel by Pixel #41 & 42: We will be accepting submissions for the next 2 weeks (Next week’s post will be a reminder that you have one week left to submit!)
Pixel by Pixel #43: cookie and els will narrow down the top 10 submissions and post the top 10! Users will be able to vote for their top 5 favorite custom clothing!
Pixel by Pixel #44: The top 5 submissions with the most votes will be posted up! We will from this point continue normal Pixel by Pixel themes but the competition will still be going!
Pixel by Pixel #45: cookie and els will narrow down the top 5 submissions to a top 3. Users will be able to vote which of the top 3 they would like to see the most in the hotel, however, cookie and els will have the final decision as to who is 1st, 2nd and 3rd. We will strongly be taking into consideration people’s votes though! This is an event for you, so we want to give you what you want!
Pixel by Pixel #46: Winner is announced!
Pixel by Pixel #50: Winning submission will be uploaded to the hotel to celebrate Pixel by Pixel’s 50th article!
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 and banned from entering any future Pixel by Pixel articles/events.
Create one piece of clothing. You can make hair, clothing, any type of accessories. If it’s wearable, you can submit it!
Poor quality images will not be judged.
Your design needs to be in scale.
Please download the avatar templates for your design.
You must submit your piece through an imgur or tumblr link.
Only one entry per person, so please don’t use any alts or we will have to disqualify both the alt and the main avatar.
Since this is a BIG competition, we will be giving BIG prizes! These prizes will be given to the top 3 submissions of the competition:
Submission uploaded to the hotel, 1000 diamonds, 50,000 credits
750 diamonds, 40,000 credits
500 diamonds, 30,000 credits
The top 3 submissions will also receive this badge:
**still in discussion about what to give top 10 and top 5 so stay tuned for those!**
[NOTE: We will be making some adjustments to our rubric for the competition by adding more categories that we will judge, as we expect a lot of submissions. We will post the new updated rubric next week!]
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...
No winners this week! There is still ONE week left to submit for the Fashion Design Competition.
Congratulations to the winners above! Contact cookie or els for your prizes!

** Submissions CAN be sent in by JULY 27TH 10:00 AM CST (not later!) BUT we prefer for users to submit any time before 12:00AM CST so we have sufficient amount of time to grade and look through everyone's submissions! **
