@prologic@twtxt.net Thank you. At this size it still does, but I think this is the limit. The one pixel bigger canvas version still works better for the pixel war sites and I think that making an even smaller version won’t be possible this time. 😅

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Thanks! It’s been an interesting experiment, moving things around and seeing what parts could still be reduced to shave off pixels. Sadly all of those signs now point to this being as small as it can get, unless there is a completely different way to draw the head and legs, without ruining it.

@thecanine@twtxt.net Saving another pixel column or row will be pretty much impossible, I agree. On the other hand, you proved me wrong in the past a couple of times already. ;-) I’m wondering, how many hours did you experiment with an 8x8 canvas to finally come to this solution?

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org I wonder too. The idea started shortly after the previous one, with jan6 suggesting his way of reducing the size:

Doing so, he proved that a smaller version is possible, but while I liked it, I wanted to make the changes elsewhere. Mostly because shortening the legs always leads to people calling me a corgi.

Than there were two or so days, when I spent some time playing around with it, but only came up with bad looking results.

Yesterday I was once again trying to break my art block by drawing something big, though that led nowhere, so I returned to the smallening project, while I still had the app opened. That’s when it finally came together somehow - in part thanks to getting rid of the collar.

@thecanine@twtxt.net Wow, that’s a very long process. Only looking at the result I would have never guessed it. Makes it look soooo much easier. But it nicely illustrates that even the smallest and simplest things are often in fact everything else than quick wins. Thanks for outlining the history. I enjoyed reading the details.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org No problem, I’m happy people enjoy the result as well as talking about the process.

Saying a few days might have been a bit misleading, as it was not entire days, but just some time during those days, usually alongside watching YouTube or listening to music.

@justamoment@twtxt.net Yeah, that’s one of the many “joys” of making pixelart.

The previous (9 x 9) version of my profile picture was actually made primarily to be used on the canvases of the pixelart games played at https://rplace.tk , https://plaxe.chetbox.com and similar sites.

This one was made to see how small can I get, but it already found its place on two of these sites, one is even in a space so tight, the one pixel longer version wouldn’t fit there.
