I'm assuming humans count as creatures? Either way, this was fun to make:

Humans are, of course, allowed. We just wanted to leave that open.

Sprite challenges have transparency, animation and canvas size restrictions, by default.

@Fjara Looks good so far :)
As for me:
Basic draft with 3 extremes I made at school. It's going to be a lizard cyborg thing (so it's both a machine and a living creature; does that count?) named Security Drone X-1200, and it's going to have an automatic minigun on its back that will load on its own (by "rising" up from its back; dunno how else should I put it) and fire shortly after loading, and unload afterwards.

Ouch, it is awesome challenge for me :D. I'm not good in drawing characters, I'm just learning to draw them on paper something like half year, and my progress is here:

I said I'm not good, so wihtout laugh please :D
I can say that this picture up is my reference for this:
(Edit/Added first animation)

This challenge is "more fun" for me than seriously challenge, because I make first time "true" character animation in pixelart ^.^

So many great submissions this week. I hope you all finish them!

@ Lapada: Super cool design. But the light source seems a bit inconsistent. In some places, the light seems to be above, in others the light is to the left or to the right. Am I wrong?

@ Dr LazerRage: Great work. It does bother me that the character actually gets darker when he fires his gun, but I think you've countered it well by how the flash lights up his glasses, etc. If you were so inclined, you could always make the barrel of the revolver rotate when he fires :) Great recoil effect on the shirt, tail, etc.

@ Mino: Cool design. Looks very Ghost in the Shell-ish to me. Maybe the eyes could be 1 pixel wider.

@ Fjara: I'm not quite onboard with the blast effect, but otherwise it's a fantastic animation.

I wanted to take a part in that challenge and learn something at the same time. So I made something like that so far, but it's not finished ;P
Anyway, awesome works are here. Good luck ;D

Made with x2 in mind. Since I have no anatomy or animation knowledge, I spent more time striking poses in front of my mirror and learning how to animate a gif than I actually spent spriting this :p. The animation is a bit slow because I wanted to display the different frames. I'd probably animate it a bit faster if I had to use it in a game.
