What is your ideal mode of transportation?
Draw a vehicle of any kind, like bikes, cars, spaceships, or something new you've just invented, using few colors and few pixels.
The following pixel artists produced Pixel Joint's top rated pixel art for July 2021.
Many thanks go out to this month's top pixel artists, and all the members who took time to rate!

Random Sprite Dump 8
2019 FRUA challenge
Medical staff are constantly sharing their most incredible (anonymous) X-ray findings to our shock and amusement. This week we will pixel some. You can use an existing viral image as refference (link optional) or imagine your own. Anything counts, from top Darwin Awards and strange objects insterted into random body openings to aliens growing inside human bodies or humans growing inside alien bodies. The only limitations to your fantasy, besides canvas size and the palette, are that it needs to include some form of a skeleton or bones and there has to be something at least slightly unusual about that X-ray photo. And remember to give NSFW warning if necessary.
August 21st is Senior Citizens Day, (and yes I looked it up after I wrote the challenge, but hey) so this week, we want you to draw your self portrait as if it's from 2041 or even later. You can simply draw your old-self or add possible changes such as eye-patch, cybernetic organs or a post apocalyptic style haircut.
Optional Bonus Challenge - Make the preview equal or smaller than 64x64 px and use it as your avatar.
Pixeljoint is holding another palette competition which is open to everyone and is quite simple.
Submit your 19 color unique + original color palette.
The winning palette will be used in PJs next Isometric collab: CarnISOl - which is about amusement park, zoo and circus. Other award winning palettes may also be used in other events and challenges.
Add a rare trophy to your profile.
Competition closes in 2 weeks, August 25, 2021. (CLOSED
The latest of Pixeljoint's traditional ISO collabs, ISOrd & ISOrcery just got complete! 27 different participants, made 98 tiles in only 4 months 24 days - which is a record hard to beat. Not to mention the final result is nothing short of amazing! Many thanks to all the participants who made this real! Special thanks to Reo who provided the palette (and made great use of it), gawrone and cjlm123 who made 15 tiles each!
Please stay tuned for the color competition for the next collab - CarnISOl! The theme which consists of amusement park, circus and zoo elements, was suggested and decided by frequent collab participants this time.
This week we want you to depict a scene featuring one or more reflective objects.

And July's most favourited award goes to:
Metroid was released in Japan on the Famicom Disk System on August 6th, 1986.
To celebrate this anniversary, this week's challenge is to draw a space bounty hunter, may it be an existing character inside/outside of the Metroid universe, or a completely original character.
