Feel free to request specific pixel art tutorials, and I'll see what I can do ^_^
The cover image is an old drawing I drew a few years ago.


This prompt list is just for fun, maybe I'll add a reward if we have at least couple of people participating ;)

If you liked these drawings, please don't forget to check out and support the awesome posts in Pixelart Community

I'm looking forward to your entries!!! ^_^


Thanks for the opportunity and the prize. This week theme is amazing.

This motivate me to keep creating with smalls squares, as an artist I want to bring to Hive says.

Yay, looking forward to your next pixelart :D Have fun!
Thank you for joining ^_^

Greetings thank you very much for the award

My pleasure thank you for sharing your art :D

Thanks for the mention. And congratulations to the winning deas

Thank you for joining, hope to see more of your art :)



Thanks for the contest and the prize <3

Hi @cetb2008 nice to see you here. I feel comfortable seeing familiar names. It is my first time here 😊

Greetings friend, what a good welcome to this community I wish you much success

Good morning, here i leave my participation!hope you like it! 😄


You captured the sunset view nicely I love it

Thank you so much! :D

Excellent! I would like to participate, and I want to ask if I can do the pixelart with the illustrator AI tools?

Hi, sure as long as it's clearly pixelart, so decide what's your smallest square size and stick to that spacing etc. :)

I love these pixelart contests. I was already a fan about two years or longer, when they were done on Steem. Keep it up!

For next week, Pixelart Contest #5, I will throw in 5 Hive and 1000 #creativecoin for the winner. The only condition for all artists is to use the #creativecoin tag for their posts, so I can properly curate them with the CCC token, so they can ALL get extra tokens that way. Otherwise their posts will not be able to earn CCC tokens.

I'm so sorry, I thought I replied to your comment. Thank you so much for the support!!

On Steem the Pixelart contests were held by someone else, but I had a lot of fun participating back then. I'm definitely feeling nostalgia for those ^_^

Thank you again! I'll add your rule in the contest #5 :D Do you have a theme request?

I would like to suggest the "Milky Way" as the theme. There are many ways to show it. Below are two very different views. Quite challenging I suppose. I have send you the 5 Hive and 1000 CCC.

Ooo I love the theme!! :D I'll definitely try drawing it for tutorial too!

And thank you for sending the hive and CC ^^ I might need some help with how to apply CCC to users/posts as I've never done it before

I think all they have to do is use #creativecoin as a tag. And when you want to send it to the winner(s), you can do so on https://dex.leofinance.io/ (which is way better than Hive Engine). It works with Keychain.

Ooh thank you, I have to check it out :D I was wondering what is Leo Finance that I keep seeing

Actually, you can even use the Peakd wallet to send Hive Engine tokens. If you don't use Peakd.com, you are clearly missing out. Particularly as an artist, as they support a portfolio page which looks sooooo cool.

Hehe, I do use peaked, I keep finding new tricks about it constantly :D
