You've been clamoring for it and here it is! This is PixelJoint's (almost) yearly April Fools Gallery challenge but with a twist!

Your task: Create a piece while immitating the style of another pixel artist.

The idea is to study an other pixel artist's style, techniques, color usage, etc and try to fool us into thinking the piece you create is theirs! (Note: Outright plagiarism will not be tolerated)

Bonus challenge: Make your piece Easter related in some way. Extra points will be awarded to those who do .

Make sure to mention the name of your chosen pixel artist in your description.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Unrestricted.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
