A quick sketch:
Will this qualify as "alien space craft and its captain "?
 
Edit:
Maybe a bit clearer this way:

Ok guys I was allready planning to ask if animation was allowed..

IS animation allowed???

I allready have a funky idea I think :)

Ok I still have 3 colors left, I tried to make stars but they did not look very good on it... Lets see if I can think of other things....
Thanks for all your positive reactions on my first non-iso allmost finished pixel art!!!

What does Chunky mean?? cant find it in my dictionary :P

ok I think I figured out what chunky means, cos Chunk Is in my dictionary... But Im not shure why its chunky, and how I should fix it .. Please tell me...

Sausage your stars look great, I wont copy them, but ill just look closely how you made them.. Im now going to start on that animation I think... Sadly I didnt work in layers (MSpaint...) so its going to be very hard to animate it..

Hey lollige,  thanks for the Comment about my starts,  :)
I always work in MSPaint,  maybe thats why i suck at animation
Anyways,    those stars were the First "Pixel art" i ever did,   (I was 7 or so...)   because i was messing around Zooming in etc..
 
Oh,   and the chunkyness,   is how fat he is....  but i think that gives him a great "Personality" (Fat and lazy,    )
 
[Edit]   Congrats,   your a "midshipman now... (Your 40th post...)

ur no ass, ur sausage.. :p

I havent checked entellis' stars, I have only checked yours, and then made mine.. allmost the same like my old one, exept those where yellow... and the idea to make them white blueish was copied from your stars :)

im now thinking of something to make him fly... flames??? I had an idea of some kind of waves coming out of those things, but that would only look good if I animated it.. but I wont... so I need to think of something else... any1 who has tips on flames with only 2 colors left???

@Hairyu: I think it might be the pinks. They really stand out compared to the rest of the image, if you make them a bit more blue/purple, and I think you need to make the background a darker blue.

This is how I see it, but this is just my opinion...



I like the blue creature, very wicked

@9_6: Really smooth one. Maybe the lights around the ship shouldn't travel linear to emphasize the roundness.
 
@Yar: WOW! Great. Superb colors and clean style. Somehow reminds me of Elite.
 
Meanwhile, a new concept:
