An MS Paint scribble of penguins dressed like Valkyrie and riding seahorses that I just made at school and will work on it when I get home. Inspired by this.

The remote and tv have one, why can't the cup have one too? I meant shadow as in a shadow that it casts on the table.

5 mins in mspaint just to check the idea.
I guess it might work... if I will animate it.



And yeah - I am probably going to use straight black and white colors. :)

UPDATE:
here's an animation test. I don't have time to draw at all :( Hope I will be able to do something on the weekend.

So many good pieces already.

*This challenge has brought up all the good memories from 2006 when PJ was ALL about penguins thanks to BtG.*

@Eggy, work on being clean and precise in your pixel placements and clusters, k.

Try reducing the orange's saturation and increasing the grey's lightness a bit- at its current state, the orange is not very good to use for antialiasing :)

Lol after trying out some different ways of doing it I thought I am thinking way too complicated.
What do you guys think about this really simple animation?



Feedback welcome.. you guys think this is too simple? Since I only used 2 colors I added some ... circles for balance.

I am not very experienced with highly minimalistic styles such as this...

If you will polish this animation and make it more contrast it will work. so far it looks like it is being watched through a green bottle.

the "probably final" version of this. Still a bit lighter than the original to make it stick out better, but darker than v2 to make the aa look unworse.

Um... That was just a sketch scribble to help me picture my piece, so I dunno why would pixel placement and clusters matter in this case :/ And I only finished today and submitted it.
Anyways, my current piece(linked to the submitted piece if you wish to comment):

Yeah, the anatomy is a bit odd in places and stuff, so it probably needs re-working. And of course, I have plenty of time before the poll :3
