Hi Friends!

We've reached the end of another month. Sadly the update is another short one as staff members are still unwell. (pretty much everyone except artists, so we're just working on art assets in the meantime.)

We're still working on a few finishing touches for the new pixpals coming out so they should be released sometime in the upcoming week.

We will start the next round of contests and you'll have all month to take part. patchmaker still unwell so probably won't be able to make new patches for awhile.
The grand prize this time will be an animated treehouse on a tree straight from the Jungle of Sweetness.
Here's a preview:


Come up with a design for your dream pixpal based on one of these shadows, it is important to note that pixpals come in colorations of 3, so if you have an idea for a theme, go nuts and most of all HAVE FUN. ;)



You do not need to be good at art, just have fun expressing yourself and your idea.
You do not need to pixelate your designs as this is merely conceptual.
Do describe your idea clearly if you're unable to draw it out to give us a better idea of what you're trying to convey. Try simple doodles.

-Anyone can participate (except judges kek)
-No entering traced or stolen art
-All art must be created by yourself, no using F2U or P2U bases
-Entries will be vetted for plagiarism during judging phase, will be disqualified if found to be doing so.
-No use of downloaded textures or clipart
-Scoring is not weighted on how well you draw, your ideas is where it's at.
-You may submit more than 1 design, but will only be awarded for 1 if you win.
-Disclaimer: Please be aware that by entering the contest that the final product is property of pixpet.net. You will however be credited for your creation should you win.

Entries submitted to the wrong place will not be valid.
Late entries wil not be entertained.

Contests Submission ends
31st July, 2022. 11:59 PM, EST. (UTC-5)


Entries can be submitted here :

Kind of a dumb question, but it's ok to trace the shadows right?

Definitely! Also I'm wondering if it would be easier for peeps if I made versions that have just the outer line only? (to make it easier to draw inside the shadow)

I am wondering the same question as Minaline. Are we able to use the shadow base and then work from designing the features off of the the shadow? The program I use for artwork works off of multiple layers with the end the merging of all the layers to make the finished image.

-Going off of BK47 comment, having just the outline with everything inside the shadow as white texture would save a lot of time in the making of the art.

Drawing on the shadow base is actually what we intended, so yes you can! (if I'm interpreting your question correctly)

I'll go ahead and make versions with just the outer line then. I'm about to eat breakfast though so it'll take a hot minute, sorry XD

Yup, that's totally fine, the shadows serve as inspiration, its okay if the final deviates a little as long as we can see that it's mostly retaining the shadow's shape and form with slight differences.

Alrighty, here are the outline-only versions for anyone who wants them. Transparent or white, and I also made versions of the actual resolution (50x50) if people prefer that.

(Transparent)








(White Background)

I'm assuming we're only allowed to submit for one of the shadows?

Hey there Finch -- rules say you're allowed to submit multiple, but you'll only be awarded for one if you win.
