For this week I want you to pick your favourite animal and pixel a tiny sprite.

() Working on a sheep. Might be going for too much detail; he looks a little angry instead of cute.  Are we allowed to do portraits? It sounds like cheating since there's nothing tiny about that.

The challenge says to pixel a sprite, so I would assume that a portrait would not be allowed.

FoX is right, no portraits allowed this week.
