A bit of shaving cream, a sharp razor and water is all you need to give your manly hairy face a completely fresh and new look.

This week is all about shaving!

Create two portraits of the same person with and without facial hair. You don't have to pixel completely different pieces; adding some kind of facial hair to your clean-shaven portrait is enough to enter. However, in order to make your entry more interesting you can, for example, change the facial expression or hairsyle.

Canvas Size - 200x100.
Colors - Max. 12.
Transparency -  Optional.
Animation - No.



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

33 1/3 RPM, 12", grooves.

There's something magic about records pressed on vinyl. It's not only the rich sound but the feel of holding a piece of music history in your own hands as well.

This week, you have the chance to cut your own record. Use the attached template below and add as many grooves as you like. The grey part is reserved for the label which you can use to express your creativity.

Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. And to hear the lamentations of their women.

- Conan

As much as we've learned to live in peace and have more or less respect for other human beings you can't deny that there's a lingering thirst for fighting & competition in every single one of us.

Rather than knocking on your neighbour's door and putting your recently acquired Kung-Fu skills to test and maybe loosing some teeth in the process, just sit down and pixel a tiny, tiny warrior.
 

You don't have to stick to swords and bows, mere fists or even guns are allowed as well.

Canvas Size - Max. 32x32.
Colors - Max. 12.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

  1. Your very first car

The way you depict the car is up to you. You can create a sprite, a scene, a mock up or more of an technical drawing etc.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colors - Max. 32.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.
