Pixel Art Challenge: He-She

From challenge winner Ahruon comes this week's deceptively simple challenge. Pixel a famous character and make the opposite sex version of it, for examples:

  • Female version of Mario (from Super Mario Bros.)
  • Male version of Lara Croft (from Tomb Raider)
  • Female version of Jack Sparrow (from Pirates of the Caribean)
  • Male version of Tifa (from Final Fantasy 7) etc.
It may be a full sprite, a portrait, a scene, anything, be creative.

  • 16 colors max (if used, transparency counts as one color)
  • NO animations
  • Max size of  216x172 pixels (vertical or horizontal)
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

Man, it figures that the one contest I'm interested in in forever is during the one week I'm too busy to work on one. I can't wait to see the entries, though.

silent sniper (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/2/2007 19:40
thats just wrong, no way i'm even attempting

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/2/2007 19:15
A character is fine. Why not Big Birdina, or even Queen Kong.

klav (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 7/2/2007 16:05

Is this only famous People characters, or can it be animals to, i.e chubaka, simba, snoopy...ect...xD

pixelblink (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 7/2/2007 12:01
it's true, I really do. This sounds like a fun challenge for sure. Hoping I can find some time to do this one.

I cannot wait.  

Kobun (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/2/2007 07:08
I am prepared for some very awesome and some very disturbing entries. =)

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 7/2/2007 06:42

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/2/2007 05:36
Genius idea, Ahruon.

This is going to be fun

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 7/2/2007 03:27
great challenge, but you can make it yourself quite difficult too (like i do most of the times when pixeling a human or animal)...

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/2/2007 02:56

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/2/2007 02:32

pmprog (Level 4 Murderer) @ 7/2/2007 01:13
