Thanks! Somehow my concept of sprite is a little wrong. I understand now. And you're right 100x100 is a lot of space.

A sprite implies that you're showing the entirety of the character - consider it to be something that could be placed over a background in a game. Also, 100 x 100 is massive.

Can a mugshot fit in the category "sprite"? Well, 100x100 may be too small anyway...

Let's keep it at one nature parent per submission.

I meant as a piece featuring both a mother and father nature :0

You can submit as many pieces as you want

Can we have mother nature AND a father? I'm pretty sure mother/father nature isn't some asexual microorganism :0

Agreed with crafty pixel. I just finished the head for the sprite, but now there's not enough room for the body to fit on the screen all at once .

I assume the body can be cut off a bit, as in, the sprite doesn't need to be fully shown?

- I like the idea and the color count, but not the canvas size = / 250x250 would be good. -

10 colours 0_0 Man, you guys and your low colour limits 

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/18/2014 00:08

Just because I'm sure someone will ask - 11 colours includes 10 opaque colours + transparency.
