Pixel Art Challenge: An Alien Artefact


Astronauts have just returned home to Earth from the planet Pyxl. The planet was deserted, but evidence was found of a long-gone civilization.

For this challenge, your goal is to depict an object that was found on planet Pyxl.

The astronauts noted that all objects they found on the planet were completely different to objects that exist on Earth.

Optional Bonus Challenge: Tell us about your object in the description - its uses, how it was created, who it was used by, etc...

Canvas size - Max 100 x 100.
Colours - Max 25.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.

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

I love the idea of the challenge. More interested in results and descriptions than creating one :)

my object is going to include a brain; can I make it look similar to a human brain so that it is recognizable?
