Pixel Art Challenge: Emancipate Your Harddrive


Create something using the restrictions from any challenge this year. The challenge thread will have a list of all challenges from 2009.

Only new or previously unfinished entries; nothing that's been submitted before. Also, make sure to mention which challenge your entry is for.

Bonus round: Post a comment here and tell us what your favourite challenge(s) from this year were! We'd love to hear your thoughts.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

My favourites were the C64 Clown challenge and the Tooth Fairy challenge. I had a couple of sketches going for the Tooth Fairy challenge, but never got round to completing a piece.

Oh this might be a good reason to finish my unfinished entry for the heart attack horror challenge then :)

My fave of the year, I'd say the magenta one, which regrettably I had no time to enter. Tempted to give it a go this time :)

If I were to choose a favourite challenge this year I would say Easter (Island). It had a nice palette (if I do say so myself x__x), the Moai are so mysterious which afforded a lot of creativity, and not only were there many entries but there were many amazing ones too. Second place I would probably say The Magenta Challenge - Wacky colour restrictions, but in the end there were some incredible and surprising entries.

I actually may try participating this week, who knows.

damn, just noticed that the only unfinished challenge piece in my pixel-directory is from 2008..

i might give the magenta-challenge a try (deffo my fav this year, followed by pixel-logos, clowns, mustache and the other palette challenges.. i generally like palette challenges - has some benefits if you're color-blind =)

*any donkey challenge would be nice for 2010 btw.. preferably in january or march =)
