What I have so far, not sure if I should add highlights?



and the preview



Also, I wanted to added AA to the outline but I also would have preferred if the background was white. Would it be alright if I had a white background instead of a transparent one? :)

Oh, haha, whoops. I just had it in my head that PJ prefers transparency over everything because i've seen it on comments of peoples work tons. Never really fully absorbed that part of the rules. Well then, time to AA :D

Is the challenge to create something unexpected or does it have to appear cute and then be scary? Could an entry look scary and turn out to be harmless?

What do you think of it?

Progress :) Background definitely not final:



Not sure if I should make the main bulk of the fur colour darker so the highlights stand out more.

My aim for it was to be simply shaded to give it the stereotypical "kawaii kawaii omg Hello Kitty" feeling.

Thinking of going in a different direction:

I could use a bit of advice on mine.



(Hearts with plasma swords and torches hunting people)

I'm thinking of having a burning village in the background, but my pallet is very un-unified... I still have 9 colors left.
I don't know if I like the texture on the hills, but when I went with actual blades of grass I liked it less.

I'll probably add clouds and adjust the way I'm shading the sky.

my first thought was also to draw some cute animal turning into a horrible creature, but i wanted to try something that's i guess a little more of a stretch. the preview image would be the two holding hands. my main concern being the fact that without viewing the whole image, it doesn't really look like hand-holding

While the hill texture may use some rework with grassy effects, I think this palette is consistent within itself. You'll probably use the remaining colors on the burning village anyways.

Thanks, unfortunately my grass textures are a bit weak and I don't have more time to work on it.

I admire your work and your minimal pixel usage so much.

You do have a tough choice here with a preview and while its already in the challenge the preview is not strong :(... Could one of the characters shirt have a cute image on it?
