It's not Christmas yet pixel people.

However, in order to pass the time before the best challenge of the year starts, I want you to pixel a being that is either made out of ice or fire. It doesn't have to be fully made out of one of the two elements though. " A T-Rex with a fiery tail and lava breath, would that be ok?" I hear? Sure, go for it!

Canvas Size - Max. 250 x 250
Colours - Max. 16
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.
