very nice. some suggestions for characters:

Dexter as Luke (of course)
Rita as Leia
Masuka as C3P0
Debra as R2D2
Harry as Darth Vader
Batista as Obi Wan
LaGuerta as Chewie
Miguel Prado as Hans Solo

other ideas for this challenge:
  • The Happy Days gang
  • The Smurfs
  • Star Trek (that'd be ironic and hillarious to see)

Entering this, nice one
question:
Do we have to dress the chars in the same cloths as the starwars guys? (since we have to do the same composition...it's a bit unclear)

Luke is wearing his lightsaber on his belt, while Han is firing his gun. Han has no lightsaber. The gun blast just looks like a lightsaber in the small picture. Notice Leia is also firing a gun.

Got a comment on my dA saying I should make a Yume Nikki one and that it wasn't too obscure... yeah, right. XD
I'm still making it though. Even if I don't get entered, it's fun!

You are doing good Igor. Use character and elements from Counter Strike to substitute for the SW characters. Who in Counter Strike would be androids?
What is round in Counter Strike? Is there a planet? Planes? Or even be creative with the items. Say the video cartridge could be placed where the planet is.

No you do not have to do that at all. The model is for composition only. I was just trying to get your creative juices going. You saw that Castlevania entry. Noticed he fooled with the layout but kinda kept it all the same in composition. That's all, just steering you in the right direction.

@Igor
 
B would most likely work better. Here's an edit showing what goes on in my head when I see an arm slapped on the terrorist:
 
Also removed the dithering and gave it a rough edit.
 
Edit: man, I'd totally do the Happy Days gang if I had the time... The Fonz as Luke, of cours!

thanks for the coment. I was going to complete the arm, wanted only to know what is the best. But thanks for the "red line" of the arm, will help me. And you are right, without dithering is much better, thank you!

Ah Jal, even your crappy-half-assed-challenge-saver pixels are still amazing. And why would you NOT submit it, it obviously needs more work, but who cares, since it's a challenge entry and there's only 1.5 hours left.

I couldn't do that to those who tried so hard on their entries.
If I were to beat the 2 already added I would feel like crap.
Maybe there will eventually be a 'clean your hard-drive' or finish a challenge before year's end.
I was just sharing because I was joking all week about the Teletubbies being a good subject for this.
My other idea was the Beatles with Yoko as Darth XD

*For extra laughs, check out my selout.

Just do it =/ I don't see what your reservations are about submitting. It's a challenge and people are supposed to enter it. Not just make entries and hold off submitting them. Look at Tomic's piece. He made it for a challenge a while back, and then worked on it some more and resubmitted it later.

Just remember, sometimes people spend an hour making an entry for a challenge and win, sometimes people spend a whole week working on something and don't even place. It's just how it is, you shouldn't feel bad about how long it took or how much effort you put into it. At the end of the day, if your entry fits the rules and the majority of people vote for it you win, that's all there is to it.

I'm sure you'd feel just as bad not submitting something and the challenge only having 2 entries. Also, if there are only 3 entries (including yours, then those guys get medals anyway :O JUST SUBMIT IT! >(

also lol @ beatles idea...I thought of the exact same thing too XD

aw, just enter it.  I actually finished mine the day the competition started, I just waited so long to submit it cause I didnt want to be the first to submit (even though I was anyway).

anyways I hope more people submit.  Two entries is a little boring.  Plus I was really looking foreward to seeing what everyone else came up with.

Its not up to my own standards, I just can't do that then expect everyone else to always equal or be better with the next piece.

Anyhoo, 4 entries now, someones gonna be a total green ribbon lozer XD
I'm voting Castlevania.

Pity that's not true.

was this the order you submitted your pixel art?

It's unreasonable to expect every piece by everyone be progressively (equal or) better than the last. We would be missing a lot of gems from your gallery (such as your various themed scarabatars) if that was the case.

Also, like I said, you can fix it up after the challenge is over.

Chances are a challenge entry won't be up to someone's standards anyway. The idea is to made something within just a week. I know you couldn't and didn't make Captain Exocet at Flaber Cove in a week.

I'm voting Telletubbies.
