Title: Sprite Jam: May 15 - May 24
Post by: Ben on 15 May 2003, 20:46
This week's subject: Who has the worst job?

- Sprite must depict the person with the worst job in the world. This should not be a job that exists in real life. In other words, be creative..
- 20 colors, 90 x 120 pixels

Animations are welcome, but there will be no monkey love from me.

The worst job in the world: God! Knowing everything, never having anything to do, and worst of all, having to listen to us annoying mortals all the time!

My first shot at a jam. Is it OK that I drew it landscape?

Ali, You go your resolution reversed..it should be 90x120..you have 120x90...Change it so your entry is legit.

I always thought it was okay to do it either lengthwise or widthwise....

I suppose it's Ben's call - it's his jam after all.

Ali, You go your resolution reversed..

I knew that it was supposed to be 90x120, but I hate drawing portrait. I don't mind if it's invalid. I knew the rules ... I knew the dangerous game I was playing...

Is there no way I can convince you that your monitors are all lying on their sides?

Nice. Too bad it doesn't follow ANY of the rules  :P

I guess it's time to pick a winner now. This week's winner is Ali.

As far as creativity, I think Ali's mountain sharpener and veryweirdguy's poison tester were both very good ideas, and it was hard to decide which was better. So I decided to pick the better looking of the two. Ali's pic has an amazing level of detail..

So congrats Ali. You can host the next sprite jam.

congrats Ali. You can host the next sprite jam.

Thanks to everyone who was nice about my picture!

I don't really know what I have to do to host the next Jam, though. This is the only one I've entered.
Do I set a post with a subject and some specs?
Help me, I need guidance.

do it about something you like....perhaps a hobby?
Title: Re:Sprite Jam: May 15 - May 24
Post by: Flippy_D on 26 May 2003, 19:31
You've got to post a theme, size in pixels, amount of colours allowed, and a time limit (usually a week to ten days). You can do stuff like unlimited colours and any size though.
