Pixel Art Challenge: Mimic Me


icon

This week you are tasked with reinterpreting one of these classic Hall of Fame pieces:

Crouching Lizard
http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/1726.htm



http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/1868.htm

Your piece must stand out differently from the one it is based on. Remember, you are just using the content of the original, not the style or colours.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Max 25.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.



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

But combos are being accepted, therefore are fair game - show me a triple somebody, come on. It'll garner votes automatically.

Don't you just love people and their loopholes.

Because the challenge is to reinterpret one? :L

(vase sharks kinda get a pass 'cos both vases and sharks are sea creatures I guess)

I'm seeing shark/vase combos. Who dares to combine all THREE?

Only I think the shark has sunglasses?

I created a picture and submited to weekly challenge but nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

 A chameleon, specifically.

I call vase critter

 Oh, wait, shit. I keep forgetting that it's actually a lizard, and not a turtle... >_>

Great idea, I'm looking forward to see the results!

If I can make time I'd like to have a go at the lizard.  Can already picture my own version in my mind.   Not much free time these days though due to work and also rehearsals begin this week too.  But yeah it's a nice challenge.

Difficult , but nice challenge


user

 DAT TURTLE.

No, the point is to only mimic the subject matter, reinterpret the character in your own style. Doing a whale would be more of an April Fool's thing for Blick.

(not the style or colours)


user

I'm thinkin' that shark will get the most attention . . .


user
PixelSnader (Level 2 Peon) @ 1/9/2012 04:03

Would we also be allowed to mimic the style and colors but slightly changing the subject. For instance using a whale instead of a shark? 


user
Chibiwing (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/9/2012 02:35

I'm going for the vase.  Not sure what I'll try.


user

Cool challenge.

For some reason I thought that Crouching Lizard was Kazuya Mochu's.


user
CPearson (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/9/2012 01:40

This looks like it'll bea tough one.
