It's once again time for our ever popular yearly April Fools Gallery challenge!

For those who do not know the rules yet, the idea is to study the PJ gallery of another pixel artist. Look at the techniques they use, the colours they pick, the subject matters they gravitate towards, etc... Then once you feel like you have a grasp of that person's style, create an image that will fool us into thinking that it's theirs. 

Don't forget to mention the name of your chosen pixel artist in your description!

Previous April Fools Gallery challenges can be found here: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]]  

"Fooled ya!" This was written by the one and only Pyrometal for last year's April Fools challenge 

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.

Colours - Unrestricted.

Transparency - Optional.

Animation - Optional.



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