Pixel Art Challenge: Pixel Joint Turns Ten


This month marks the 10th birthday of Pixel Joint. Technically, it was around before that in a limited form - but let's just call that the gestation period. If you're interested, here's a view of the site from a decade ago.
Anyway, this week, sprite your own interpretation of one of iSTVAN's three nerd mascot concepts shown below. It can be wildly different in style, as long as it's clear that it's based on one of the designs shown below:

Your piece must be at least 3 heads tall. Just so we're all on the same page, the designs above are <2 heads tall. Also, check out this illustration from Andrew Loomis.

Canvas Size - Max 100 x 100.
Colours - Max 32. Transparency counts as a colour.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.

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

Ten years?  And checking my profile I can see I've been a member nearly that long too.   Oh god... where did all the time go?   :O  How the hell are we almost in the future of Back to the Future Part 2?  :O
