HAHAHA... the Hatch! this challege will be really interesting!

ok, here are more ideas:

  1. Teleporting
  2. step on a mine.
  3. open a treasure chest in Zelda Games.(Ta da da daaa~)
  4. Miner who found gold
  5. an opponent being hit by Ken's Shoryu-ken
  6. etc.

I Think i've got my own idea.

 the city iluminates the character as he falls from the Sky. (animated of course)

another idea I passed up was some gamer hovering over a TV with a 2600 ontop and a joystick in his hand.

I'm liking primordial bloop, though.

Does the pixel art have to sort of resemble the Billie Jean video pictures, or does the character just have to be illuminated from below? :/

Well, Sax will get illuminated from the DDR arrows, I personally don't see anything wrong with this, I feel it fits within the rules, but I'll make it darker, with purple lights and maybe some blue.

Heightened the contrast.  The fire still needs work... not sure what to do to it though.

1) stay away from default MSPaint colors
2) make the fier shine on more than just the boar itself
3) ???

@AdamPlays:

I liked the colors on your first post of it the best.
I'd say if you wanted to up the contrast, up it on just the pig, spit and fire. Return the figures, sky and ground to the original colors. Also, maybe (IMHO), go from high saturated colors on the underside to black on the mid side to ambient lighting on the back.

I love the composition and the style of the figures.
