I am very happy to be developing the third edition of the international pixelart gallery. The two previous editions have already added more than 10,000 plays only in newgrounds and a very nice community is being created around the project.
"International PixelArt l Gallery" is a digital art exploration game where the player can browse the work of digital artists from all over the world using an interactive world map.
The purpose of this project is to connect creators with new audiences and with fellow colleagues, as well as leaving testimony of worldwide collaboration between musicians, pixel artists, programmers and game designers.
Everyone will be granted the opportunity of exposing a small sample of his/her work.
The idea behind allowing only a small number of drawings per author is to give the user a glimpse of everyone’s work while keeping the platform lightweight and evening out the visibility of everyone. Of course, you’ll be able to add contact information (e-mail, social networks, etc) so that users can see more of your work, connect with you or see what you are currently working on.
How to participate:
-Send contact information (artist name and country) and whatever you want to exhibit in your gallery to firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Send the links of your social media. (instagram, artstation, linkedin)
-Send indications regarding how you want to use your gallery space, which will consist of 3 screens of 640x360 pixels.
You can send images in any format you want GIFs too.
Violence, drug use, sex and other taboo themes are allowed, although I’d appreciate having content suitable to all audiences if possible.
Because of potential copyright issues, the only not-obvious content restriction goes for fanart. I understand fanart is not plagiarism, but I also don’t want to pull the lion’s tail - at least for now. Of course actual, literal plagiarism of any kind will not be tolerated to any degree. The works you send must be yours and only yours.
Once I get your images I’ll be adding them to your gallery and updating the Protoype so you can tell me if you approve it or not. At this point you can ask me to make modifications to how your work is displayed. A healthy back and forth is expected at this point :) . I won’t publish anything until I get explicit approval from the author. I promise to do my best to meet your expectations.
If anyone, at any point and for any reason (or without reason) wants his/her work to be removed from the app, he/she can write to me about it to email@example.com and the contents will be removed in the next release.
Regarding funding, collaborators won’t be charged in any way for having their gallery included. There won’t be any publicity or advertisements other than promoting your work. Some mechanism to receive donations will be implemented, though. Donations will be strictly reinvested in the project.
If you have a friend who is a pixel artist who you think would be interested in participating in the project, do not hesitate to invite him and give him my contact.
Recommendations based on experience...
Remember the game resolution is 640x360
Send the drawings in the original resolution. 1 pixel = 1 pixel. there is no need to scale or enlarge the images before sending them.
If you want to make custom buttons for your display or put your logo or avatar, let me know and I'll send you the specifications of those images.
For those who want to get jobs as pixel artists, I recommend making Linkedin and Artstation profiles and putting those links in the bio.
For those who want to collect payments, I recommend making a paypal account and putting a link in the bio.
