What if you don’t have photoshop but do have another art program?

@Ruby: hi there! It does depend what program it is because you need to be able to do gradient maps!

Feel free to still apply if you’re not sure you’d be able to do it, we might can figure something out! :)

"You\'ve had too much of the digital love -


Krita, GNU Imp, and I'm pretty sure Clip Studio Paint support gradient maps.
I had to convert the gradient map PSD to a file type that Krita supports, though.

(PS: Should I send that file to one of the admins so people who use Krita can use those gradient maps?)

i can open psd and save as PSD in clip studio paint. so your program may support PSD files.

There's something foul about the air here...

@Vozzy: I just wanted to make sure this was okay so I can be on the safe side, is it okay if I livestream me making the pieces that I want to include in my application, or should I keep it private like I would anything I else I would make here?

My program does support PSD files as well, is that what’s needed?

@grost: Yeah, that's totally fine. Thanks for asking!
As staff we do not livestream our work because we don't like to spoil the surprise! xD

@Ruby: If you're applying to be a Pixel Artist, any program that can support.psd files are fine. Photoshop is highly recommended for our Item Technicians because the tasks required of them such as cropping, gradient applications, etc., are more smoothly done in PS.

@Vozzy: Oh sweet thank you so much! :D And don't worry I would never stream any actual work if I did get accepted :)

"You've had too much of the digital love -


Hey! I went through the application process - and noticed a.. bug?? error? You can't upload .PSD files to the portfolio section of the form. I'm pretty sure this wasn't intentional, so I thought I'd let other applicants know. My workaround was to upload the .PSD files to Discord and link those, though I'm not sure if that worked...

@0v7: As far as I can tell that works! :) However we'll try to look into why it won't allow psd files/see if there's another option.

@Lilypoo: If this helps with troubleshooting - it seems to only accept image files, regardless if you try to upload the .PSD files directly to the application or if you upload it to Google Drive and try to select it.
