Going for a neoclassical take on the Japanese myth.

10 colours, though I think there are some strays.

Challenge winner http://pixeljoint.com/p/10442.htm - skamocore wants you to draw a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kasa-obake - kaso-obake - a one-eyed, one-legged umbrella demon. I clicked on the link and did some reading and was wondering if we are specifically restricted to One eye, One leg?

You can do whatever you want as long as it is consistent with the Japanese idea of a  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kasa-obake">kaso-obake

I believe the eye and leg thing make it more consistent with the Japanese lore, but there's nothing wrong with thinking outside the box. He's seen as cartoony and mischievous... And always an umbrella. So if you get your main points I think you'll be good.

That's really interesting! I like the idea of him being less of an anime character and more mythological. I can't wait to see what you're doing progress.

My approach on the Kasa-Obake and my first challenge, feel free to make any suggestions or commentaries to improve my pixel art.

64x64, 13 colors

@SeinRuhe; Nicely done. But you need to cut down the number of colors on 12 because of the rule in this challenge. You can color the background in one of the already used colors (and in that way to remove the transparent/13 color) or you can use light creamy instead of white. Or, you can remove both colors and add a medium shade of purple to soften that sharp shine.

@Irenaart; Totally forgot about it! Thanks for pointing that out, I'll change the white color for the light creamy one used at the top of the umbrella
