Pixel Art Challenge: Mansel in Distress


icon

Show a helpless male (human) character that needs rescuing from a perilous situation. This could be anything from a prince being held captive in a castle to your uncle having a flat tire on a freeway.

Disclaimer: Before anyone cries foul, I just want to point out that this challenge is in no way intended to be sexist or discriminatory; the purpose here is to provide a new spin on a well-worn trope (that is, of course, the familiar 'damsel in distress' scenario).

Canvas Size - Max 180 (width) x 160 (height).
Colours - Max 30.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.



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

I won't say I feel like David Copperfield when I use the magic band. That wouldn't be true. I swear.

Why wider than taller? Being a human character a taller canvas would have been better...

Actually we were going to try Bruce Lee instead, but Pixelation has him locked up in a tower somewhere and wouldn't lend him out.

Hey there's a challenge idea right there.

Lawyer? We don't need no stinkin' Lawyer. Not when we have our own version of the law around. And it's name is CHUCK NORRIS.

Discrimination and threats of violence. You'll need a lawyer soon.

And any one who is silly enough to cry "gender discrimination" shall be slapped across the face, properly.
