CHALLENGE: Ordered Pixels

Pick two words that start with consecutive letters of the English alphabet (D&E, K&J, Z&A etc...) and use those words to form the title of your challenge piece. Your image should correspond to the title; so for example, you could pick "B" & "C" as your consecutive letters and then create a "Big Crocodile" or "T" & "S" and draw "The Sun". Keep in mind that we're talking about real English words here.

Make sure to set the title of your piece to your two chosen words.

Optional Bonus Challenge: Can you do it without picking words that start with the most common starting letters - T, A, S, H, W, I, O, B, M, F?

Canvas Size - Max 67 x 89. Either horizontal or vertical.
Colors - Max 12.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

bit of a mish-mash at the moment, but my main plan is to have food drop down and she eats it, and gets points depending on how good or bad the food is for her.

edit: and i shall call it... Feeding Game.

You could animate it so that she starts off skinny then, as she eats, she changes in size. That would be awesome.

So I chose to do Overweight Panda. Comments are appreciated   



Was trying to imitate Jamon's "sha-lu-likes-kung-fu!" feeling of being surrounded by leafs and stuff. Keep in mind that it's still in it's early stages
Also, I kinda need help showing the overweight part of the picture lol as of now he just looks like a normal panda, i guess.

When she eats her last carrot her score should go from 20 to 0. For some reason it jumps up to 40 and then to 0 though it says a carrot takes away 20 points. I think you might have forgotten to change it when you used that frame twice. :-)

But I really like the idea and the look. I must say the chewing animation looks a little odd though. But that should be pretty easy to fix. (:

Some Trees, using the Unpaletteable palette. Still a wip, from a sketch from life.

Lightest blue on tree tops is supposed to be much brighter than purple. Bloody laptop monitor doesn't let me be sure: need your heeeelp guys!

Meagz: excellent sprite <3. Falling foods anim could be more fluid.

You did it ! I can't beliieeeeve it 
The lightest blue IS brighter (the contrast between blue and purple is approximately the same than between mid-tone blue and darkest violet).
Should increase the contrast between the trees and your bg.
And to be honest, I think it's gonna be awesome.

The lightest blue on the trees is considerably lighter than the purple on my monitor if that helps.

I think I'll go with the latest and refine it. Thanks again Manjaman for the remark about contrast!

@ previous posters: Great stuff guys!


Edit: latest update.


Still needs a bit of work.

I had a potentially funny title idea: Itch Hiker. Won't do it, feel free to.

No. The ground could use a lot more work; it looks quite flat and is pillow shaded in parts.

I know you're going for 8 colours, but I think at least one of those colours should be used to AA the rays emanating from his head.

Also, why just one small section with dithering? It seems very out of place.

Anyway, it's looking nice; very amusing.
