Complete the Grid!

Postby BurningLed » Sun May 23, 2010 12:01 am UTC

I wasn't sure whether to put this in Art or Forum Games, so I went with the safer option. It's a common thing in the Gamemakergames spriting forum, where there is a large (usually 10x10 or 11x11) grid of blank squares, and each poster reserves and then fills out a square by continuing their pixel art.

Rules:

-Don't worry about proficiency, this is for fun, not a contest. Participate if you want to, and just try your best!

- You may only edit one square at a time. Prior to editing the square, please post to reserve your square so that someone doesn't place a square where you want to go before you. Use coordinates (e.g. 5th to the right, 5th up) or upload an image with a marker on the square. After you've finished, simply edit your reservation post with the image.

- You may only edit a square if it's red or if it's next to (up, down, left, or right of) a square that has already been edited.

- While it's not necessary to follow a theme, it improves the look, and it's certainly a good idea to mesh your squares in with neighboring ones.

- Please save to .png if possible, to save space.

- Have fun!

And now, the starter image:

Keep in mind, that doesn't mean the whole grid needs to be an underwter scene. That could be a small pond, or a big test tube, et cetera. Keep your minds open and creative!

I know I can't save more than one, so I'll take 5,3 for sure. But I ask that no one takes 5,2 and 4,2 so I can finish my constellation. 8) Unless you think you can finish it better, then by all means.

Wow, that took off a lot more than expected. I do believe I'll reserve the rightmost red square, 11 across and 5 up.

I'm not entirely sure what the green stuff is. Maybe floating seaweed? Maybe toxic waste leaked from the ship?

When you guys are numbering squares, do you count from the top down, or the bottom up?

Next one of these we do (assuming there is a next) we need to cram more things in and then discreetly place a Waldo.
