Pixel Art Challenge: Happy End of Year...Thing


This week you are challenged - in the spirit of political correctness - to design your very own secular holiday character (Think a Santa-like character, but without any religious connections).

Your character may be presented in any way you like; portrait, sprite, incorporated into a scene etc...

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Unrestricted.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation -  Optional.

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

That is a great idea.

Well, Santa is pretty fear inducing D:

The New Year's Knight

A humble enforcer of humanities self developed resolutions made for the comming year. The New Year's Knights role it's to make certain that people fulfil there resolutions. Those who failed to complete the objective of their resolutions the previous year, shall be diced in two.


That's my idea, don't know if it would be acceptable though as it's more a fear inducing character. Colours would be gold,silver and black mainly as is typical New Year's colours. I may not get time to do this however due to me working in retail and it being the busiest week of the year.

Peace, love and unity is what a lot of religions teach, including mine :)

Anyways, happy holidays and nice challenge.

I think that introduction of character is in it's core a religious thing, this character at least will be idol.

peace, love, unity, and respect are independent of religion. so long as you don't use religious characters or symbols to express these concepts it should be fine.

It's politcal correctness gone mad!


Does the character nessecarily need to be merry?

One of the hardest polls I have participated. There are so many cute, impressive, creative works.

I don't like the air entries as much as the others, so I voted for one of each (earth, water and fire). As I said, there are many gorgeous entries, so I tried to see what were cute, creative and explored the colors representing better the element.

Congratulations for so many good pieces!
