Pixelart Community Totem Pole by ryan-gfx Pixelart Community Totem Pole by ryan-gfx
:crazy:After hours of collecting names, hunting down projects, placing pixels, assembling the pole, etc, it was all worth it. (well...) This is it! The unvailing of the unbelievely tall Pixel art Community Totem pole Project! I would like to give a BIG thanks to everyone who participated! :) I never imagined my little project would grow so vastly popular and bring in so many pixel pieces. 88 totems in all, If I am correct, which stands just about 7000 pixels high. That's high, my friends.

-^halfliquid, for helping it/getting it more exposure, and creating a totem piece.
-*eyodius For creating a kickass base for the totem, and 2 other awesome pieces.

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-07-18
Pixelart Community Totem Pole by *ryan-gfx (and a whole bunch more people) is the ultimate example of what pixel artists can do when they come together. The culmination of 88 submissions and standing around 7000 pixels high, this is a truly impressive undertaking that really paid off. ( Featured by blackice )

ryan-gfx Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2010
So I uploaded this 6 years ago. I've been getting a SHIT ton of comments complaining about how the image doesn't show up and you know what? I dont have a copy of the fucking totem pole anymore. I've had like 4 computers since then. It's technically deviantart's fault for losing the image file, when they revamped the site. So blame them, not me.

File not found :o?
Hiwiwy Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2009
