    Picture wars!

    So, some of you may of heard of Picture wars whilst it was still a subforum and some of you might not have. Either way, we now have our own forum and we would love for some new people to come try it out.

    What is Picture Wars?
    Well, you sprite little guys and have them fight - sounds simple right? But there is ALOT of variation - let's show some examples!

    [release]

    Ah a classic, made by SuperChocobo - The Coco's![/release]

    [release]

    Is that a giant fucking spider? Yes it is, the Arachnawarriors by mewiththeface![/release]

    [release]

    These sexy beasts by Sanzh - the Ceph'qua[/release]

    [release]

    One of my very own armies, some dinosaur people![/release]

    [release]

    Some steampunky styled Imperial Germans by Kommrad![/release]

    [release]


    Some armies by pocket medic![/release]

    Alright, so you've seen enough of the armies - lets see a snippet of a match:

    [release]

    A match between Kommrad and Yuskolov one of my favourites that is currently going on!
    [/release]

    Anybody can join with any experience, you don't have to have godly artistic skills - we will help you improve and you'll have a great time with our little community. Join us over at:

    Picture wars!

    Honestly I'm probably not giving it enough credit, just go check it out and explore - maybe join!

    I'd recommend it, it's great fun when you get some practice in at spriting. Perhaps pop these two of my armies into the OP as an example? Thanks.

    I really wish we could converge the both of us. I remember ye' old picture wars. I really miss it. I never see the subforums now that they are at the bottom. I wish we could have better connection between us. I'll go over there eventually. Thanks for the refresher.

    There needs to be a picture wars sticky, since there is no other connection between the old subforum and the new forum.

    are we ruining this forum and its users? Im just saying that if you have sprites for PW, you shouldn't be here, go to the PW forums.

    Err, so, is this in MS Paint or what? I'd like to know and take part, because I've recently got a metaphorical hard-on for MS Paint and pixels and drawing and things such as that.

    Yup, basically just drawing little pixel people and having fights with them in MS paint. My explanation doesn't really do it any good, check out the matches forum for an idea of what it is.

    Holy. fucking. shit. balls. what the-how-
    wow, you guys are totally out of my league. I'm blown away at the quality of those armies. its even more amazing that those are interactives. INTERACTIVES. HOW THE FUCK DO YOU MAKE MS PAINT INTERACTIVES THAT GOOD? HOW? TELL- ok, I'm good. I guess I'll check it out.

    Just a taster for anyone dubious about coming over to the site.

    My ships are the ones getting owned. I sprited the explosions

    Edited:

    Potanis, it ain't easy! Thats' for sure. Especially the explosions (they are bitches to sprite). It's possible though, it helps you improve your sprites and have fun!

    Hi wolfius, and that is the worst excuse of the lot pivotmaster, there are people who joined a year or more ago (such as myself) that were terrible and got better, you never know until you try, and if you are crap, get better, but it'll only happen if you give it a go.

    Well, actually I'm ok with Pixel Art, but it's the shading that's troubling me. I don't feel comfortable posting trash work just to join an amazing pixel game.

    Don't worry, we all started out terribly - if you post some of your work we can help you get better at it. Here are some general guidelines for the scale and such - 25 pixels high is the average humanoid, Don't use other peoples armies, and accepting criticism helps aswell.

    I have a couple good armies you can add to the OP if you need more examples.

    Well, aight. I'll try it. It's okay. But there's al ot of work to get done. I give criticism and get criticism. I'm sure I can handle it.

    in other words,, if you're starting out, borrow an army to use for scale, after that, use yours to scale

    or if you really are desperate, ask for permission to use. this is frowned upon, as people expect you to make you're own

    You're actually the only person from the old person that I am aware of who actively dislikes this new forum
    You're only hurting yourself

    Whoever made the Facepunch subforum just wrote the name wrong and nobody could be bothered to campaign to correct such a minor problem

    Hey MSpaint-people. In my travels i have seen what looks like a resurgence in what PW (Picture Wars) used to be like when it was on this forum. So, in bumping this thread im hoping you can check Picture wars out and maybe get your spriting talents up and unclutter this sub forum. Maybe even get your skills in MSpaint up as well. (maybe not that last part, thats what i remember all the MSpainters whining about so PW got its own sub forum for a while.)
