CHALLENGE: April Fools Gallery 2016

It's been a while since the last April Fools Gallery challenge - 6 years, in fact. Maybe it's time we had another one...

The idea is to study the PJ gallery of another pixel artist. Look at the techniques they use, the colours they pick, the subject matters they gravitate towards, etc... Then once you feel like you have a grasp of that person's style, create an image that will fool us into thinking that it's theirs.

Important: make sure that you are not plagiarising someone else's work! Even though the goal is to 'fool' us, your submission must still be entirely your own work.

Also, don't forget to mention the name of your chosen pixel artist in your description.

Previous April Fools Gallery challenges can be found here: [1] [2] [3] [4]

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Unrestricted.
Transparency - Optional.

You should try looking at her entire gallery and getting a feel for her general style. Don't constrain yourself to a single image for inspiration.

A lot hehe, is a pretty damn cool animation, if you don't mind I'll study for future references...

And the character definitely looks like a girl of studio ghibli, doesn't?



I have a question, I was wondering if I could imitate the style of a pixel artist who no have a profile in PJ. I like the style of 1041uuu, and I would like to do a painting imitating his style, Could I do for the challenge??

Has to be a PJ Gallery. But talk to scam about it.
It is Mei from Totoro, and its the concept of my animation

It didn't look like it was part of the challenge, I'm sorry. Whose style are you trying to copy?

I'm going to be copying Snakes, sorry I should have said. It was very early stages so just planning composition, but I wanted to show everyone how I make the entire piece. Here's current progress on it:







At this point I'm a little stuck on colours and ideas, if anyone has any feedback on this half finished piece, please shoot! This is simply a learning exercise for me.

Update: Tried to separate colours more and use more specific art from the mockup (I think it's starting to work better):


Progress, probably the most work on it so far - nearly done :D
