This week's theme is...

As always, the theme is interpretive. You can create real insects, fake insects, insectoids, or perhaps you're a programmer and you have a completely different opinion on what a bug is.

The examples I share are simply meant to inspire you.
Like this abstract insect...

PAW Insects Post

Hey Jonny,

The last week was a great motivation for me, so I decided to create an animation this time.

You can find the whole creating process of it here: https://steemit.com/art/@megii/first-try-of-pixel-art-gif

I will appreciate your ideas what should be the backround!

Thank you a lot for such an opportunity!

very nice. can you also post a 1x scale version, I'd love to see this at actual pixel size


Did you both mean this? :D Should I originally create it from more pixels? And thanks!

that's what I meant. very awesome !

It looks fantastic!
Even just a solid color background will help the art stand out more.

Thank you!






I just can't make a choice. What do you think?

Can you also attach a version of this in its original scale?


Did you both mean this? :D Should I originally create it from more pixels?

Just wanted to see it... That's awesome

Leave it as is.
If you make the top 3 again, I'll pick one.
Probably the light blue.

If I'm allowed to chime in here... My eyes got stuck on light blue background as well :)

No problem, thanks for your opinion. :)

Yes! I was able to complete an entry.

My butterfly entry :)

Is there somewhere I can pm you?
Discord or chat?

Twitter right now or discord tomorrow :) @kristyglas

Message me on discord when you're around please.

Well I didn't receive any messages from you, we can chat here if you don't mind then :)

Hi, from me! Here is my first entry at all. It's my first time to designing a pixel art and I am so excited! I really enjoyed it!


just came across the PAW challenge. If there hasnt been one you should do one about coins. Everyone should make some pixl art about their favorite coin. mine is DOGE but I cant do pixel art myself -.- found this on the internet^^

That's definitely a possibility for a theme in the future.
Thanks for the suggestion!

Did someone mentions bugs ? I swear I heard someone mention bugs. What's up doc. Bugs' the name !

Hey Jonny, i love what you are doing with the Pixel Art Weekly. It's a Really fun awesome contest series.

I'm ramping up to build some of my own projects to support artists on and off of steem, and advocate for artists needs on steem and other blockchain networks. In the future I hope to be able to facilitate new projects and support existing projects like your own.

I'm looking for some help finding the best artists on steem, so if you have any suggestions let me know, or post them here:

I am giving out a small amount of SBD and up votes for people who help me find artists already using this platform.

Thanks, again, i appreciate your work.

That's my entry:


It's my first try doing pixel-art. Hope you like it.
Upvoted and resteemed! 😀

Thank you @jonny-clearwater!! Think I'll join this contest more often in the future. It's really fun! Thanks for this great contest!

Hey Jonny it's allowed to do an insect type pokemon? i've done a sprite of Caterpie

Absolutely. As long as its original artwork

I made it!
