Pixel Art Challenge: April Fools Gallery 2018


It's once again time for our ever popular yearly April Fools Gallery challenge!

For those who do not know the rules yet, the idea is to study the PJ gallery of another pixel artist. Look at the techniques they use, the colours they pick, the subject matters they gravitate towards, etc... Then once you feel like you have a grasp of that person's style, create an image that will fool us into thinking that it's theirs.

Don't forget to mention the name of your chosen pixel artist in your description!

Previous April Fools Gallery challenges can be found here: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Unrestricted.

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

I see plenty of cool artists in your favorites folder, are you sure there is not one that overlaps best with your abilities and interests?

I've always wanted to do this challenge but I can never think of an artist whose style I'd like to imitate ;_; And picking randomly seems a bit crap.

No it does not. Just make sure to include an external link to the profile page of the artist on whatever site he/she uses (probably twitter)

does it has to be an artist with PJ gallery?

I love this challenge. Even if I don't participate.
