    Have you tried pixel art before?
    Yes. I was a member of a dedicated community, though that's not to say I was particularly good. But I know a thing or two.
    Would you be willing to participate in such a collaboration? How many tiles would you be willing to make?
    Yes. I'd do... probably up to 10 if necessary, but ideally less (so we could fit in as many people as possible!).
    Would you prefer the art be restricted to TF2-themed submissions or free-reign?
    I think TF2 would be fun, and fitting to us as a community.
    Do you have any other comments, questions or suggestions?

    Alllrighty then. Interest levels are medium to high for this so I'm going to set something up.

    One more question: For a TF2 themed set would you rather a unique non symmetrical shape with no team split, or a symmetrical shape (viewed isometrically so not actually symmetric in the image) with a red side and a blue side?

    You would of course be able to choose entirely blu tiles, entirely red, or some mix of both.

    I'd like to participate, though I'm not sure I could do very many tiles at all. I've done a teeeeeeeny bit of pixel art before, but it can't be too hard, right?

    And that's how we all feel. Also when in doubt just copypaste YMs avatar into it and call it art.

    I would keep it mixed so no specific areas for blu or red.

    I've dabbled in editing stuff and making a few simple sprites from some games but nothing originally creative
    Would you be willing to participate in such a collaboration? How many tiles would you be willing to make?
    I'd like to, maybe one or two
    Would you prefer the art be restricted to TF2-themed submissions or free-reign?
    I think free reign is better, just with the suggested theme of TF2 or anything TF2maps related aka nine's duck or dogbread or Jonah's character in the art thread etc.
    Do you have any other comments, questions or suggestions?
    I'd like us to be able to see each others work in progress by using say a shared dropbox folder or something rather than all go off by ourselves, make our squares and then put them all together. would make incorporating other tiles easier and the blends between them that much more interesting and natural.

    no

    yes, 1-2

    free-reign preferably, but it doesn't really matter to me

    Do you have any other comments, questions or suggestions?
    maybe a Steampunk theme in a Grayscale or limited color selection?

    Would you prefer the art be restricted to TF2-themed submissions or free-reign? If I had to pick I'd go with TF2 but it really doesn't matter to me.
    Do you have any other comments, questions or suggestions? Sounds like fun!

    I'm sure that YM will provide a new shape, for originality's sake. As for the tile assignments, in the original collab we got to select whatever tiles we wanted, first come first serve.
