Pixel Art Challenge: Not-Particularly-Big-Soft


This week we want you to pick a maximum of 12 colours from the Microsoft Office palette (shown below) to depict something small.

It could be toy car, bacteria, a chihuahua etc... just as long as it's something that could reasonably be considered small in comparison to an average-sized human.

Canvas Size - Max 192 (width) x 96 (height).
Colours - Max 12; Use only colours from the Microsoft Office palette shown below:

Transparency - Optional.
Animation - No.

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

 @Drazelic for me the great parts are between blue and green and between red and yellow.

Doing it your way seems like fun, Ultima.

Wow, I actually like working with this palette! I miss desaturated reds and desaturated blues, but the greens-yellows-oranges area seems pretty okay.

It can be but not as much charm to it. I'm currently playing pick 8 random colours with my eyes closed. ^_^

That can be done without animation too right?

I assume you can only pick 12 colors if you use transparency.

Nawww why no animation? First thought I had was a dung beetle rolling a dung ball.
