It's a potato infused with some plant. I don't really know or care too much about it.

Lot of imagination in those wips!

And yay! Night is entering \o/ I always love your creations 

Mine so far (I haven't yet figured out some parts since it's still a very early wip), sort of a dancing demon or gargoyle :

So, this is a thing. It's made of coral. Possibly. Maybe.



It's very flat right now...

This challenge looked interesting so I figured I'd give it a shot! Using Dawnbringer's palette.

Some sad looking rock-fish (I think?). [15 colours with transparency]
As a pixel-noob any advice would be helpful. Thanks.
Definitely thinking on refining the palette at some stage.

Looks nice, especially compared to my entry. I think the palette is nice how it is, but I'm sure someone more experienced could tell you something to improve...

Just upload it to a file sharing site and link it here (I personally use DropBox). You're not supposed to post WIP art to PixelJoint.

Cant see much else that needs improving, so I'm close to being done. Crit still welcome though.

Made some slight alterations and used some brighter greens. Also changed the rocks to more of a plant-like colour, just to test which looked better.


Not sure which of the greens look better on the main body, but they're all good I guess. However the green rocks/seaweed/whatever is definitely an improvement.

Decided to try my hand at a fakemon.

He has a Hulk-hand for a tail (wasn't quite what to do for that part).
I think I'm gonna rework the palette a bit before posting.

Work in progress. I wanted to try two characters rather than one.

I'm a bit stuck though, not sure what the best way to deal with jaggy edges or to separate the two forms would be?

I call this one "Lack of imagination", and it's, well, blob.

Can't figure if i'm missing stray colors there, since my tools are in disagreement. It should be 12 though.
