Here is my first WIP. I know it looks super cool already, no need to be jealous.
-|> -|> -|>
-|>

Edit_1: Made changes :/ Not quite what it seems.
Edit_2: I have a rough image of what I want in my head, but struggling to get it onto paper at the moment.
Edit_3: :) Starting to feel it now.
Edit_4: I should mention the first generated image I got was of dragonair, so going with that pallet. Going to find it hard though as I hadn't realised the blues were so close in value :(
Edit_5: Just, more stuff. Going to work on the arm and legs next.

Every sprite does not use full black, the darkest colour can vary for every sprite.

Since I ended up not participating in the last week's challenge, I thought I would give this a shot. I got Venusaur. I'll try to make a top-down western themed stealth game mockup. Obviously inspired by Minish Cap.

PJ challenges run on the honor system and its just a matter of artistic and creative morals not like some hard rule.
It is assumed than no entry ever has pixels made prior to the announcement because its unfair if work was created previously.
Even just a 'little' can be seen as unfair and is unfair so if your entry fails the spirit of this rule then have fun and submit to the gallery when you are done but not to the challenge

Wait, what makes you think I'm using pre-existing pixels? I would never use some pre-existing work in my challenge entries, not even as a base. Or can't I draw inspiration from existing games? Is that it?

I apologize if you read an assumption where I was posing a question on your vague comment.

Oh, now I get it. You thought I might be using parts of the previous challenge in this challenge. If that's the case, then there's no need to worry. This is what I was working on for the previous challenge:



Needless to say I didn't reuse anything.

Basically what I meant in my post was, I didn't submit anything last week so I'll try to participate this week instead (with new pixel art, of course).

No worries, no harm done. Maybe I should be the one to apologize for not knowing how to express myself clearly in English. The language barrier strikes again!

I got psyduck. So many yellows.

While trying to think up something not fan-service-related I decided to draw our high lord and savior.

Too bad I didn't realize there were two colors in the image that weren't listed for my entry. I could have used those, or maybe I would have made something else. Oh well, t'was fun.
