Recently, Veksell hosted a new Hexquisite Corpse Collab for the Russian pixel art community.

Using the a3um's 20-color palette, the community made their own version of Pixelation collab. You can see it complete here. Special thanks to 1Eni1, who made a fancy interactive version with all the names.

This is one of my first attempts at pixel art (circa 2001). As you can see, it's complete garbage.

Your task is to create your own version of the image - one that isn't garbage.

Canvas Size - Max 162 (width) x 142 (height).
Colours - Exactly 11.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.
