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.

Red Planet Day is observed annually on November 28, so we are going to observe it in pixel art.
Use our canvas, and add 8 colours of your choosing (as the number of planets in our system), and your imagination.
You are free to make a photorealistic, actual mars, but you can also make a very "artistic" interpretation with beautiful, exaggerated canyons, or in a style of a cute video game. It can be scientifically factual and contemporary, but also very fictional like including near or very, very far future colonisation, or fantastic alien live. It even don't have be literally a "red planet", you can go with green (after terraforming) or blue (filled with oceans, as some scientist suggest mars were in the past), or you can imagine mars going through a fire volcanic phase or ice globe phase or entirely urbanised by super technically advanced civilisation billion years in the future. Just make it obvious somehow that this is still a Mars we are looking at.
Of course the sky is also your canvas and you can fill it with moons, stars, nebulae, apocalyptical asteroid explosions, spaceships or gigatnic celestial beings, or science fiction megastructures sticking out from the planet surface. But if this is not somethig you want to do, or have no time this week, you can submitt a transparent version with a planet circle only (delete the black sky part of the canvas).
Canvas Size - Exactly 300x300 (use the provided file).
Colors - Max 11 (black and red from our canvas + 8 of your own, and transparency, but only if you decide to skip the sky).
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - No.
It is that time of the year, so LET'S BEGIN...
This week's challenge is simple. Draw 3 sprites of different autumnal leaves using the Autumn Glow palette made by Sonnenstein. Leaves have to differ by colour and shape.
Canvas Size - Max 200x200.
Colors - Max 21, only colors from the provided palette + transparency.
Transparency - Yes.
Animation - No.
