CHALLENGE: April Fool's Gallery III

Well it's that time of year again...

Go to another member's PJ gallery, study their pixels, and fool us into thinking that that person made it.

No copies, only 100% original work.
Think style, technique and artistic sensibility.
You must name the pixel artist in your submission.

No real rules this week but find the parameters set by the artist you choose.
This applies to general size, color choices and don't forget to pay attention to preview icons.

Also have a look at the previous two April Fool's Gallery Challenges [1] [2]

(Yes, this is the real Weekly Challenge!)

  • Only new pixels allowed.
  • Open to all members.
  • Posting WIPs in this thread or in new threads in the WIP section is highly encouraged, but ONLY SUBMIT YOUR FINAL ART.

CHALLENGE JUDGING

  • Every Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) the previous week's entries are judged.
  • Every week a new voting poll will be posted for previous week's entries.
  • Winner announced the following week.

CHALLENGE PRIZES/GOODIES

It's a shame that one would have thought this a serious challenge AND pixelled something in the first 12 hours as well.

Won't WIP pieces give away some of the surprise?

well the surprise may or might not be a factor, if your piece is meant to be a present/tribute.

I'd love to see this finished, pillow shading aside.  Very vibrant colors, this really works for me.

Maybe it's a mother duck who was walking over the road and then got squished by a school bus, then all the school kids got out and started to poke it with sticks?

thats my guess

p.s or a rabbit

Here is my wip that I won't be entering because I don't think it would be able to pass off as original. Well it was fun.

Arcan, that depends on who you're tying to emulate. Seeing how it's iso, first thought that comes to mind is jal. Is it jal? XD

Ye I was trying to copy adarias. The stone tiling isn't the only problem, there are minor things here and there that you may not notice.

Ok, wait, seriously? THAT is considered ripping now? (Got mine sent back for 'not submitting my own work'.) Seriously?

...

I think you changed, what, two pixels?

But come on, when are we going to see you really push yourself...There are plenty of amazing artists to imitate for this challenge. Flamey is not one of them. Don't be afraid to really try. Why not imitate one of the artists that you really admire!

Looking through your favourites, I can see you have favourited pieces by Fool, Frankiesmileshow and Orkimides...I know you love animation, so why not do one of them for this challenge??

It's probably too late now, but it doesn't mean you can't still try a piece in one of their styles later on.

Actually I was thinking of trying to do Met's style. But that's beside the point. XD


I don't quite agree on the 'it's ripped' part, seeing how the whole thing is in iso. But I'm not going to argue it, mainly because I'm too tired right now. :P

(I still say that we as a community need to sit down and revise the rules somewhat.)

I don't think what Flamey did was entirely THAT bad. But like I said, I'm not gonna argue. I'm just gonna make something else. XD
