Ob's stürmt oder schneit...

There's certainly some kind of fascination for these huge machines that move across the battlefield striking fear and terror into the enemy's hearts.

This week I want you to pixel a tiny tank that is more than capable of ruling the battlefield. You can pixel any tank or self-propelled gun you want, just make sure it has tracks and looks cool!

Colors - Max. 12.
Transparency - Required.

12-frame second draft. May add more color to this, but I'm more concerned with fixing the flickering outlines and unintended wiggling parts. Pointing out areas that look weird would be much appreciated.

This is awesome, could you have the pixels that represent the track on the bottom alternate to give the appearance of movement? Might also run into a flicker issue I suppose...

Slight update. I think this created more problems than it fixed.

A perfect tiny tank, I love it !

As for me I decided on a walker-type tank, still an early prototype :
