  A quick piece I made for this week's challenge. Kind of a breakaway from the norm that'll probably be put out, but I didn't see anything explicity about HOW we had to render it in the rules. If I misread I AM SORRY. Pixel Joint will have my firstborn as tribute.

I made this without seeing the transparency requirement, so I kind of just threw that in. I don't think it'll look good on anything but a bright background, sorry...that's a design flaw on my part. :/ 
Edited this based on some feedback from king_bobston and Manupix. Thanks a lot, I think this works a lot better!

Here's what I had before I realized the transparency requirement : http://i.imgur.com/K66JHjl.gif

Very good interpretation!

 Thanks a lot too! I might go ahead and do another one that's more sprite-y, just depends on time.

As long as it isn't explicit stated that this isn't allowed, it is allowed. Creative interpretation of rules is still creative work and should be respected in an artist community. Of course, keep in mind that this is just my opinion.

Also what Manupix said. And if you should change it, it should be before the voting starts.

I think you should keep the bg and crop it in some different shape to meet the transp criteria.

No idea if it will make it in or not. The challenge calls for a reinterpretation of a sprite: it's unclear whether the result has to be a sprite too. I'd personally say it's fine, though ;)
