 71 afros.. i think what appealed to me the most was the size and theme..  'as long as it has an afro, it doesn't matter what you draw'..

I think the key to ensuring participation is hair styles. After all, a high proportion of pixel artists are hairdressing diploma drop-outs.

Yeah, the tiny size definitely helps motivate me atleast.


user
surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/8/2011 06:40

Tiny size helps too I expect.

This weeks challenge is going to be packed! Tuesday and there's already 10 entries :D Afro theme is clearly a winning theme <3

Updated the challenge. From what I've seen, requiring transparency may be holding a bunch of entries back, so I've loosened the transparency rules.

 I actually thought I'd need more colors for what I'm making. Turns out I don't :)

=P Why would you complain then?! Aha, you can literally double the amount of colors you're using.


user

 nnnooooooooooooooooooo oh well I'm only using like 8 colors anyways :)

 I'm going to nitpick and ask if transparency counts as one of those colors :)

user
surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/7/2011 00:17

I was thinking something more like this.
