Sorry for the delay on theme announcement, had a headache and went to bed early. So I got up early to get it done.

In memory of the late great Adam West, Pixel Art Weekly is showing their love by making this week's theme...you guessed it...Batman!

Ummm.....Hells yeah!

Okay, this time I made a GIF lol: Webp.net-gifmaker.gif


There's a consistent cuteness to what you do


I suppose so. But I did add the scowl! 😉

This is my entry into the weekly challenge. What do you think? It is over 30 frames/layers.

RIP Batman

Batman: "Who will look after this city after I am gone Alfred?"

lol, pixel art is hard. this is my second attempt, first one i lost too much progress in a crash. good fun though


----------------------this one is my FAV!

Okay so these took me a very long time to make, but I am proud of them. On your suggestion, I decided to try my hand at this. I have not animated pixel art in a very long time and even then I was an amateur. But I hope you like it!

The idea behind this is that Batman is so scary, that even the weather disperses once it sees him standing there. I ended up deciding that this was a bit confusing? I dont know, I mean if you don't explain this to people prior to showing them this gif it would seem weird because the rain seems to stop abruptly. So I decided to settle for a simple loop. This is the final entry.


Alright here's the new version. I tweaked the frame timing, added a few water drops splashing on batman's shoulder that pop up for a few seconds when it is raining. I have also added the moon to make the background less bland. The moon is huge because he is standing on a high-rise building. The previous version was very fast, it flew past without even giving you a chance to see it. This is a bit more slow. I'd appreciate some criticism. Thanks.


It's looking fantastic!
For someone that hasn't done this in a long time, you're doing great.
It's nice to have you in #pixelartweekly


thanks dude.


Only one entry however you are allowed to edit that Image prior to the end of the contest.
I love it!


You never needed to explain yourself...lol

So are you going to enter the contest?


My pixel painting skills are quite rusty now. I'm mainly doing vector. I'll have to pass sadly. I will keep an eye out for contest art.


Well you have all week to try.
The theme is Batman and we would love to see you enter.


I'll let you know if I can get that together for you mate. Thanks

what's the best program to create your own


Oh God there's literally tons to choose from... Seriously just Google it and choose any one you want


Downvoted for infringement.
All entries must be original works of art.
You have plenty of time to try again though.
Please don't tarnish the contest or Batman for that matter. 😉


I removed this piece. There was not "infringement" in the general sense but since it is your contest and you feel it was then I will step back. Looking at the following..

All entries must be original works of art.

I fully agree and wish to retract my entry. For clarification there was NO copyright infringement in this art. Just not following the rules of the contest. For that reason I do not believe it should have been Down-voted though. I appreciate you comment on why and respect your contest to the fullest otherwise I wouldn't have done the following...

  1. resteemed it
  2. mentioned it in my other posts or
  3. submitted an entry

I didn't say copyright for a reason. It was infringement on someone else's image however.
As I said though, there's plenty of time to get an entry in.
I'm not mad.


Ooo! This will be a fun challenge


You better hurry!
4hrs left!

Up voted. Best wishes. Followed

OK - I'll see what I can do!
