Pixel Art Challenge: Sprite Recolour


Design a sprite of an original character, then create at least two alternate colour schemes or outfits for that character.

Canvas size - Each individual sprite must be a maximum of 32 x 32. The total canvas size, however, is unrestricted.
Colours - Max 32 for the entire image.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.

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

I see what you're getting at, should be fine.

Hm. Put it another way. Would those two count as 2 outfits for one characrer?

Maybe if we do another challenge like this in the future we can have larger sprites.

Ha-ha! I have to agree that the canvas size is small but isn't it challenge-ing? 

Why do you have this amazing challenge when I have bad eye infection?!   I must figure out a way to pixel characters somehow D,:

Please make the canvas larger! D:

32x32 so small tho...

Well, ideally, each sprite should be directly comparable. So, I'll say that if you have to have different poses for each sprite, try to keep it minimal.

Maybe optional animation implies the possibility of recoloring the animation or frankensprites.

delicatone (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/4/2016 01:15

Since animation is allowed, seems you can make as many poses as you want.

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 7/4/2016 01:07

Is changing poses for alt color schemes allowed?
