I'd like to know if this would qualify :P
I was thinking more of a 'jaguar' sort of cat than the domestic type. Also I'll make the smoke coming out of its mouth!



Also #2, are 64x64 avatars even allowed on pixeljoint? Thought the max size was 50x50 ;/

Yeah, a tiara/diadem/crown/whatever thingamabob :P

I've reworked the nose a bit, I think it looks more catlike now:


Also, here's Jo the Cat. He was a good cat.

Didn't make anything yet but already enjoying that sci-fi cat :) I think you could add a bit more depth and hide one part in shadow so that it doesn't look so flat. Check it:



I just darkened part while you can work out some other places as well.

I have three plans, but, do goggles count as head gear?

A helmet and wizard hat seem to obviously count. =)

So I need to get a hat on the cat. I'm having trouble making it actually look like anything hat-like due to the small scale it has to be to fit on the cat's head.

I had an idea for a helmed cat whose tail is on fire due to a dragon, but it was a bit too epic for an avatar.

I had an idea for an aviator cat who was in a plane that was shot up, smoking, and rambling on its way down to the earth, which was also hard to try to think of a way to frame in an avatar.

Don't let silly thoughts restrict you. Push yourself and embrace limits. It can lead to good things and creativity :)

I made a bunch of palettes around the theme of blue/red/yellow. I think I spent more time playing with color than actually making anything.




A lot of things are taking up my time, like working on my 2400 square foot garden (I'm actually starting to get muscles, amazingly) and also house hunting so I can move, so if I have any time to work on this it'll probably be a last minute thing. x_x

Got some line art and flat colors down. :)
The pallete still needs some messing with, but it's onto the tough parts for now!

Edit: Moar progress, still a lot to go.
