According to the Chinese Zodiac, this is the Year of the Fire Monkey.

So this week, create an image based on that theme; it could be a monkey made out of fire, a monkey that's on fire, a monkey that breathes fire, etc...

Keep in mind that monkeys are not the same as apes. Generally, the rule of thumb is that monkeys have tails and apes don't.

Canvas Size - Max 150 (width) x 200 (height).
Colours - Max 16.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.



The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
