CHALLENGE: Nice And Clean

A bit of shaving cream, a sharp razor and water is all you need to give your manly hairy face a completely fresh and new look.

This week is all about shaving!

Create two portraits of the same person with and without facial hair. You don't have to pixel completely different pieces; adding some kind of facial hair to your clean-shaven portrait is enough to enter. However, in order to make your entry more interesting you can, for example, change the facial expression or hairsyle.

Canvas Size - 200x100.
Colors - Max. 12.
Transparency -  Optional.
Animation - No.


  • 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.
  • Only new pixels allowed.
  • Open to all members.
  • Posting WIPs in this thread or in new threads in the /forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=8 - WIP section is highly encouraged, but ONLY SUBMIT YOUR FINAL ART.


  • Every Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) the previous week's entries are judged.
  • Every week a new voting poll will be posted for previous week's entries.
  • Winner announced the following week.


  • Top three finishers will receive an award displayed in your PJ gallery profile for all to see and envy.
  • Top finisher gets to call the following week's challenge...sweet.
  • 'Participation' ribbons will be given for all who enter.
  • No matter what happens you get challenged :)
