My pixel day entry is late. big sad

Posted by gatekid3 - January 24th, 2021

My pixel day entry isn't done. which makes me sad. I feel like I've done a lot of planning to make sure id be working on it enough to get it done. I even spent last night through today working on it nonstop and its still had so much more that i needed to do than I thought. Kind of makes me feel like a failure. And now i did so many last minute rushed things to the point where it kind of hurts a little to look at it. I don't know if I'm just going to keep pushing till it's done in whatever state. slow down and try to fix everything, or just let it never get finished since pixel day was kind of the main motivation. I know only a handful of people probably cared I didn't have anything to post, and I'm sure no one really cares that it's late and would look at it whenever it's done, but I do feel bad still.

I'm happy to see the amount of movie entries this year at least.

And all the pixel art is amazing to see as well.

Pixel day is nice

Hey don't worry. It's always cool to see new stuff here, whether it's some special date or not. Just take your pace.

that is true. ill try to keep that in mind

I look forward to seeing your finished project. A lot of your pixel art is awesome.

Thank you. ill try to make the product even better without the deadline

Sorry to hear about not finishing in time. I also love seeing everything you make so I hope it gets to see the light of day!

Ill get over it
I still want it to be finished, but now i kind of want to step away from it and do it more properly than ive been doing so i can still feel happy about it.

You're not a failure. We're a community of artists and we get what you put yourself through to try to make that deadline. Not everyone here is a content creator but you'd find it rare if someone gave you shit for participating in the event. The major deadline is past but if you submit your work with a "pixelday2021" tag, it should still show up in search results I think?

Art can hurt if you let it. Artists have so much passion for their work. We all started somewhere. I personally love fostering good feelings to see what people grow into as time goes on. They're like Pokemon that start out as Magikarps. Maybe one day you will become a...

... (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ GYARADOS

Fuck, after writing all that I just gave your work a quick look. You're already a Gyarados. I can see why you are upset, pixel art is your thing. Hope the big sad doesn't drag you down any more than it already has.

I feel more like a level 40 Shiny magicarp.
I know no one cares if i enter or not. I didn't even really need to enter, but i did really want to just out of personal obligation. it was more letting myself down than anything. Ill get over it eventually though.

it's okay bro because no matter what i love seeing your pixel artwork night and day. you have a great talent that makes me smile. I hope you get to finish the project lad!

Im so sorry man. You should still finish it! Youve had so many great accomplishments in past years for Pixel Day and im proud of you :) everything you make is marvelous!
