Pixel Art Challenge: He-She


icon
From challenge winner Ahruon comes this week's deceptively simple challenge. Pixel a famous character and make the opposite sex version of it, for examples:

  • Female version of Mario (from Super Mario Bros.)
  • Male version of Lara Croft (from Tomb Raider)
  • Female version of Jack Sparrow (from Pirates of the Caribean)
  • Male version of Tifa (from Final Fantasy 7) etc.
It may be a full sprite, a portrait, a scene, anything, be creative.

Rules:
  • 16 colors max (if used, transparency counts as one color)
  • NO animations
  • Max size of  216x172 pixels (vertical or horizontal)
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

Man, it figures that the one contest I'm interested in in forever is during the one week I'm too busy to work on one. I can't wait to see the entries, though.

A character is fine. Why not Big Birdina, or even Queen Kong.
