Hello PJers!

1st December makes 10 years since one of PJ's oldest bugs, jalonso, joined Pixel Joint.

To celebrate his anniversary, we wish to surprise him with a flood of jal themed avatars this week!

 

To participate:

Create an avatar (max 64x64), in the theme of a birthday party. Cakes, the number 10, your character dancing, scarabs and other bugs, anything goes!

Use the palette of the original jal avatar + transparency: jalspalette

Optionally animate this, ideally with just 2 frames (like the other jal-atars)

 

And don't forget to use it as your avatar for the jal-atars week!

 

If you feel creative and can improve your work by bending the guidelines, feel free to do so!

 

Please don't forget to tell Lakelezz via this news item, PM or within the description of your piece, if it is okay to let Lakelezz use your piece in a collage in order to keep the memories saved : )

The collage will be posted via another news post and not be uploaded on a PJ user account.

 

Last but not least:

A big thank you from us to you jalonso, for your great work as moderator and as community member! 

 

 

(note: this isn't a weekly challenge, so don't check that box when submitting)
