CHALLENGE: Tiny Warriors

Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. And to hear the lamentations of their women.

- Conan

As much as we've learned to live in peace and have more or less respect for other human beings you can't deny that there's a lingering thirst for fighting & competition in every single one of us.

Rather than knocking on your neighbour's door and putting your recently acquired Kung-Fu skills to test and maybe loosing some teeth in the process, just sit down and pixel a tiny, tiny warrior.

You don't have to stick to swords and bows, mere fists or even guns are allowed as well.

Canvas Size - Max. 32x32.
Colors - Max. 12.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.


  • Participants have until this upcoming Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) to /pixels/submit_icons.asp - submit their entry (strict). Don't forget to check the 'Submit to weekly challenge' checkbox.

My attempt at a tiny warrior. I'm not really pleased with how the staff looks. Any thoughts on what I could do differently?

Just realized I did not shade the pants. Will work on that too.

I would change the skin color to more saturated color, and slide the saturation on the other color accordingly.

The pose is well-balanced, I can only think about the color for now.

Good luck with the contest
