That's right, we're having another pixpal shadow contest!

How to Participate:
1. Use one of the shadows below to create a new pixpal! (You may draw inside the shadow using an art program of your choice!) If you're not able to draw, you may describe your design -- but please be as clear and detailed as possible. If you'd like to make a non-pixel version of a shadow, you may trace the shadow. You may also resize the shadow as you see fit.

2. Submit your design(s) in this thread! You may submit more than one design, but you'll only be awarded for one if you win.


The Shadows!
(Transparent)








Rules & Guidelines:
1. All registered users may enter, except judges.

2. With the exception of the shadow itself, designs must be drawn by you (no AI assistance, clipart, stock images, etc.) and should not contain any copyrighted material.

3. Submissions should also follow our site's general rules for appropriate content.

4. You don't have to be good at art; your idea is what matters to us!

5. Your design doesn't necessarily have to be colored, but it would certainly stand out more if it was! (And the more color variations, the better since pixpals come in 3 to 6 variations!)


Prizes:
1st place:
225 PPT
20,000 PC
Gold Contest Badge
Your Winning Pixpal x3 (upon release)

2nd Place:
100 PPT
10,000 PC
Silver Contest Badge
Your Winning Pixpal x2 (upon release)

3rd Place:
50 PPT
5,000 PC
Bronze Contest Badge
Your Winning Pixpal x1 (upon release)

All Participants:
+10 Pixpal Inventory Slots*
(*if inventory isn't already fully expanded)


Contest Start/End Date:
This contest starts on June 1 and runs until June 15, 11:59 PM (PDT). We may extend the contest if needed. Judging begins as soon as the contest ends, and may take up to 2 weeks. Currently no date is planned for when the winners will be announced.


Entrant Agreement:
By participating in the contest, you understand that if you win, your design will become the property of Pixpet.net. You also understand that you will not receive monetary compensation for submitting or winning.



Good luck everyone! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Something I forgot to mention in the first post:

If the shadow you're making your design with seems to have awkward anatomy, feel free to fix it as long as you keep the general shape intact. 😊👌

lol enjoy my fingerpaintings fantastic digital art

Tabbikit: This pixpal prefers to spend its time curled up on the nearest warm, soft surface, and it's not afraid to let that be known. Tabbikits demand attention with loud cries and by winding their strongly static fur and twin prehensile tails around their chosen perch. Disturb a sleeping Tabbikit at your own risk.

Was a tad bit nervous sharing at first but I did make a concept for this.

Aetherifin concept description: Aetherifin are usually found either in the clouds above where they glide with their wing-shaped tail or in the purest waters where they laze around and linger. Their numerous eyes are fully functional, able to watch what goes on, even if their back is turned. They're usually grayscale, with the only colored ones existing seemingly afflicted by something. Whether afflicted or not, it doesn't drastically change how they act, for better or for worse.

That's a great question! I'll see what other staff members think and get back to you asap.

(Also unrelated, but I'm so sorry about Crestley's stray pixel! The corrected sprites don't seem to stick lately when they're applied...I'll see if Cherche can try again :s)

@BK47 thanks :) I realize it's only fair to not let winners participate again to give other players a chance

(oh that's fine, no worries haha)

Spoke to other staff members, and the consensus is: let previous winners enter! So if you wanna enter, you're good to go 👌

Workats: Tiny cats with big jobs. Would basically be a collection of different cat breeds in working attire or/and with small props. First time trying proper pixel art so tried a few different styles

little gryphons based on various pigeon breeds c:
name suggestion: Delidove

Delidoves are very good navigators. Thanks to their amazing sense of direction they have no problem delivering mail or small packages to anyone in the pixpet realm, no matter how far they have to travel. They are also very friendly and loyal pixpals, always willing to help any pixpet or pixpal that got lost and can't find their way back home.






colors: black, brown, green/lime, blue, gray, white

Just want to check something. I'm not a pixel (or even a digital) artist, and while the rules say you can trace the outline, is it okay to print the shadow out and draw in it that way?

No name ideas atm, I'm kind of bad at this lol. Two are inspired by some aquatic creature and one... well I had an idea but refused to use brushes to make it work and stuck with pencil tools
