You can definitely do all three - each being their own submission, of course.

I guess I'll be the first to post my WIP for the week!



I'm personifying the moon as Diao Chan, the famed Chinese beauty whose face shone so pale the moon turned away from her in shame. I'll probably be animating my piece this week if I have time.

Maybe too WIP, but I may not even bring it any further than this. Doing the sun. I'm using Israel Kamakawiwo'ole as a model.

Rough WIP of homeless drug-addict Earth.

I don't know if I'll continue with this.

Finished the Sun.
Sadly, couldn't think of a good way to attach a "free energy" sign to him.
Probably it would be better to animate him than to make another two guys.

At first I couldn't think of anything... then I realized...

...does this technically mean we can do Captain Planet pixel fanart? ;)

Because that actually sounds tempting.

fyi, your pixel is listed as 15 colors but technically its 16 colors.
Transparency in pixelart is always counted because it is a color in the art that merely uses a mask to hide it.

Imo, nudity in art is art at its most basic and should never require a warning or label. You can label if you like or feel responsible but know that in the PJ gallery this is not required at all.
A label perhaps is best if there's blatant sexuality but that would likely fall into the porn category and that we would never add anyhow for some reason or another beyong vulgarity but likely because PJ memberships starts at 13 and Google would ban PJ which supports running PJ.
