8 years after the original Hero Splicer challenge, once more it's time to create your own original super heroes or villains.

Choose one word from each coloumn to create your character's name. It's ok to change the order of the words to find the suitable name. Your character is supposed to reflect its name.

You can present your character however you like (standalone sprite, incorporated into a scene, a portrait), just as long as your character is the main focus of the piece.

A B C
DR ACID VIPER
MR DARK MORTIS
FANTASTIC ROCK FURY
NITRO CHAOS STORM
ULTRA GALACTIC HAVOC
THE OMEGA MAN
PURPLE ELECTRIC BEAST
LADY AQUATIC BONES
GREEN TOXIC GIRL

Canvas Size -  Max. 128 x 128.
Colours - Max. 16.

After 13 long years of waiting Tool will be releasing their next Album on 30th August 2019.

For this week I want you to pixel some kind of tool. A, beer opener, a simple wrench, a drill, an excavator or even a crane. As long as the device is used to perfom some kind of action on another object, you can pixel it. So get crazy.

Canvas Size - Max. 120 x 120
Colours - Max. 16
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.
