Recently, Veksell hosted a new Hexquisite Corpse Collab for the Russian pixel art community.

Using the a3um's 20-color palette, the community made their own version of Pixelation collab. You can see it complete here. Special thanks to 1Eni1, who made a fancy interactive version with all the names.
