Hi huys.. i'm new in pixel art and after some serious work yesterday finished this..
 
i'd really love your comments on the mat.. computer.. dustbin the the square table at the center.. and of course the bedsheet(blue)
 
i still have to add the elec switches and maybe an AC.. i dont wanna put too many things on the ground.. i want that mat to be seen..
 
 
and can i submit my apartment in .png... i guess i can.. only the evil .jpg is not allowed.. used GIMP to create this.. did'nt use any swatches as such.. just went on coloring with minimal amount of colors.. btw why is .jpg not allowed??

Actually you must submit Joint Rooms as transparent Gifs.
 
Jpegs use lossy compression that distorts and miscolors your beloved pixel art.
 
Pngs aren't fully supported as transparent and darken your colors.

Work on it as a PNG then when you're done, one of us can either convert it to gif or tell you how to do it yourself. Paint doesn't work well with gifs, so it's best to use them for final versions only.

That poster on the left wall doesn't look hand pixeled to me. You might want to take that out.

I agrre that the monkey poster needs to be revised by hand pixelling. I do like the mat on the floor. However, the use of black on the mat is quite distracting. Try a dark grey or blue grey. Actually ALL the blacks except the outline of the room itself should be recolored. Adding a highlight color to the edges of the desk and cupboard will also look good. Nice room!

Poster ruins it, and the carpet is too bright and doesn't suit the rest of the room.
Besides that, I rather like it.

The Joint only accepts .gif formats just so you know.

I also fully agree with Jalonso about the black outlines. There's no conformity in this so far.
