Can it be anything other than a human? I somehow get the implication that the character we have to draw has to be a human.

I think it should be fine as long as it has an identifiable face.

Gonna make me a Jar Jar Binks guy with an oddly-placed bucktooth (or a stick-out tongue, whatever) who jammed his head into a tube like an idiot.

Sorry for the noob question, but how am I supposed to submit a piece for the challenge if I can only submit 100x100 pictures on the website?

The 100x100 maximum size you see is for the preview image (labelled "small file"). The entry itself, if it's larger than 100x100, is to be selected as the "detail image" on the Submit Pixel Art page, and in reality a piece can be as big as you want/need it to be (unless there's an absolute cap I don't know of).
I hope this helps :)

This doesn't really fit the challenge restrictions, but I had fun making it and will submit as "normal" piece anyways ;D

Working on it. Just started like an hour ago, so I guess I'm doing pretty good, feeling the time crunch though. :P
