This gave me such "my time has come" feels because comics are what I do when I'm not pixelling. I hope I can find the energy to participate!

Would it be acceptable to make a pixel art version of an NPA comic page I created before?

The thing about that is that it kind of contradicts the "Only new pixels allowed" rule for the challenge... That would give you an unfair lead on the other competitors in that you are leveraging previous work (e.g. the line art and design of the page).

This applies to everyone, no conversions of existing works allowed. Applies whether or not you were the author of said piece.

Sorry eishiya, hope this won't deter you too much from entering the challenge.

No need to apologise, it's only fair :]
The layout of a page is probably the hardest part, so it makes sense that reusing it would be cheating.

It's no detriment! If I end up not participating, it will be because I've got real comic pages to draw ):

What I got going on so far... felt inspired to do this challenge. :) The right one was just trying out another possible composition.
