Hello and welcome to our 83th week!

Before you join, please read our Rules to avoid confusion and any unpleasant situations!!

Clock Dates

Start: 26th September
End: 8th October
Winners Announcement: 9th October

Theme of this week: Embracing animals

This week we would like to tell you about The Shelter Project and encourage to bring awareness of it to your watchers and friends by creating a related pixel art entry :heart:

The Shelter Project is an ongoing charitable project, that seeks teamwork in order to raise funds for animals in need of food, shelter, ongoing medical treatment, and for animals who are waiting for adoption to a new home. The project does this, primarily through purchases of a wide variety of artistic works available, by Tea of TeaPhotography .

This month the Project is celebrating it's 6th year of existence! That's why we wanted to tell you about it now, and we're encouraging you to visit TeaPhotography and read more information about it on her profile. Anyone can help by point donations (details in the Donate widget on her profile), purchasing any print from her gallery, or a jewelry piece, hand-made by her! For instance:

To celebrate and bring awareness, please create a pixel art regarding the topic of embracing animals, for example: sheltered animals, abandoned animals, people who cares of animals, love between human and their pets, a portrait of your pet, etc. :)

Additional rules for this week:
  • please create art with "real" animals - no closed species, anthro, Pokemons, etc.
  • please chose an animal you can meet in a Shelter - we won't be accepting ex. elephants or whales :B
  • please remember that submission must be family friendly, and we won't accept artworks depicting animal cruelty or abused animals
  • please add to your keywords or description tag #theshelterproject - we will be checking!

* To clear out: this is NOT sponsored in any way!! It was our very own idea to ask Tea if we could host a week regarding this project :nod:

A Little Pixel HelpWe know that there are tons of tutorials out there that go over different aspects of Pixel Art Creation! Did you know that there are also alot of journals discussing the art of pixels as well? I decided to browse through them and put them here in a journal for you to easily find.

I am going to go through these at a later time but I just wanted to put this one out there for all of you pixel lovers!
