The 100 euro low spec graphics compo

category: offtopic [glöplog]
Hope that catched your attention.

I'm going to tile my shower in october and I'm thinking about making a mosaic pattern. Take a look at this one for the general idea: picture

As you can see I have white, black and two shades of gray. I have some red and copper colored as well but thinking about sticking to 4 colors... The light grey is closer to white and the darker grey is closer to black, I unfortunally don't have a mid grey but I could look it up...

Now, the problem is that I suck at pixeling,but I'm pretty sure there are some great artists out there that would like to give it a go and also would like to see some art really become reality as well :-)

The resolution is 37 pixels horisontally and 80 pixels high. This is physical limitations so they are pretty much written in stone. This is for the wall straight in.

The wall to the left is also 37 pixels in width and the right wall is 39 pixels wide, same height as front wall of course.
I'm thinking about skipping the side walls but if you come up with some extraordinary art I'll think about tiling those as well..

100€ will be handed out for your work. I will distribute money as I please (good entries that not gets tiled is still worth some money for me). But winner will receive at least 50€.

Deadline is around end of September I suspect, but the sooner the better (ordering tiles etc)

Anyone up for the challenge?

besides, if you're tiling, the only valid things to put there are Space Invaders, everyone knows that.

Maali: the corners don't match up, they have a ceiling list, but the round stuff is pretty well made.. nothing I couldn't make, but I just think mosaic is much nicer to look at ;)

here's another one for inspiration, but just 3 colors:

Ficken! I just measured the tiles and they are 2.2mm apart, meaning I will be able to fit _42_ tiles in horizontal and _90_ tiles verticly.

(42 on left side and 44 on right)

btw, I accept scans and copies... if you can make something cool out of a photo it's ok, everything is okay within the restrictions above.. but I'm a sucker for nice pixel art tho :)

if noone is going to respond to the challenge I will take it to pixelation...

thec: I lack the pixelling capabilities required but I could generate a scene from a demo? :P

Gargaj: I think Space Invaders is a bit overdone. :\
for retrosake (and keops uses the same pics again and again too, so...)

are you sure you counted the space between tiles too? Remember that <cellspacing="0"> is not true in your bath/<table>. I guess you counted that, but when I put the tiles in my kitchen I undermeasured the separation between tiles (usually you put those little plastic crosses during installation), but in that case it was not a problem. I´m saying, JIC.

I did a picture for the ZX81 the other day. It's 64x48 and b/w only, but I guess I could rework it a bit to match your requirements. It should be possible to squeeze in the most important bits in 37 pixels. ;)

a genuine archmage pixel wall is worth every penny :D
