Twelve tribal drummers for the "12 Days of Christmas" pixel art challenge.

I tried to be a little unconventional and I hope I managed to do that. Used 12 colors, pixeled in mtPaint. Hope someone like it

Edit: Refined the fire and the ground behind the drummers..

Thats so cool! I really have to improve mine now!

Wow, this looks great.  Great job on the lighting, and a nice twist on the concept.  Two things I would fix:

Make that fire brighter!!  If it's giving off that much light, it should be a bright yellow-white, not a dull, dying-ember orange.

You should also raise the horizon or possibly just have it bee off of the screen.  The drummers just don't appear to be on the same perspective as the ground right now.

Other than that, nice!

this is pretty cool!

No way, there are twelve, I have the colors numbered in mtPaint! I know the palette attached is maybe a little confusing, but there are 12 colors.. Two of the dark colors in the middle of the palette have similar RGB values; one is the background color and the one to the left is hardly visible, but it's there! There are 12, trust me :-)
