Thank you, everyone involved in this collab!  Thanks for all you guys that organize these things behind the scenes.  It takes a lot of work!  You are appreciated!  

Thanks especially to JerryPie for the awesome concept/lineart that I got to work on.  You can see his original lineart HERE.  An unlikely pair in Bob Ross and a touch screen computer/cintique, but I think that, in the end, it was a PERFECT pairing!  You didn't let down on your end, my friend, so thank you!

I hope that the submissions from this collab gives those that are less involved in the challenges and collaborations on PJ.com a sense of how fun they are and how great, even when you have to buy out some time from your busy lives, it can be to give back to the community with your art.  You will only get out of it what you put in, but it's so much fun and rewarding in the end.   

Like Bob Ross says, "There's nothing wrong with having a pixel as a friend."  Okay, maybe he said 'tree', not 'pixel', but the concept still applies!

Thanks for joining me today and enjoying some pixels with me.  I hope we can do this again soon.  :)  Keep going, guys and gals, and don't give up with your creativity!  And don't forget to have some fun while doing it!

"How do you make a round circle with a square pixel?  That's your challenge for the day." Bob Ross - The Joy of Pixels.

You nailed it. The instant i saw him, my first thought was: "Hey that's Bob Ross!"

Thank you, romanticpixels!  I spent most of my time on his face and hair. I thought, if I want to really sell the concept, I'm gonna need to detail the likeness as much as possible.  I'm glad for the palette space with 32 colors (even though I only utilised 30 ) or I would've struggled a lot more.   I probably could've put more into the touchscreen he's using, but I had limited time to work on it so I had to focus on the more important bits.  That loving smile is hard to get down in just a few pixels because there's so much emotion and expression there. I hope I captured even just a little of that.
