Pixel Art Challenge: Sledding


This time we are animating downhill sledding action. This is a slightly northern-hemisphere-centric, wintertime challenge (even if not many see any snow these times) so if you feel excluded, you can slide the sled on sand dunes, or go with a ponton sliding down on a huge water slide in waterpark, or even a some sort of a cart downhill ride?

The idea is that we want to see a character/charatcers sitting/lying/standing on some sort of a vehicle which is moving fast downhill. But we don't want to see the movement of the vehicle itself, but only the character and the suroundings (background, foreground - parallax animation very welcome). So animate things like clothing, hair or fur, trees passed by. Slight movements of the vehicle (like vibrating, bouncing, flattenig due to speed) are acceptable, but don't make it the main focus of the animation. Keep the vehicle in in the same position of the canvas.

Don't worry. It's not showing in the challenge entries page now, but it will be when we start the vote next week.

Mods, I have a question. Will art be added to the weekly challenge if it is postponed to the next week? Or should it be deleted and joined again?
