Pixel Art Challenge: Mimic Me


This week you are tasked with reinterpreting one of these classic Hall of Fame pieces:

Crouching Lizard


Your piece must stand out differently from the one it is based on. Remember, you are just using the content of the original, not the style or colours.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Max 25.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

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

But combos are being accepted, therefore are fair game - show me a triple somebody, come on. It'll garner votes automatically.

Don't you just love people and their loopholes.

Because the challenge is to reinterpret one? :L

(vase sharks kinda get a pass 'cos both vases and sharks are sea creatures I guess)

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/13/2012 20:43

I'm seeing shark/vase combos. Who dares to combine all THREE?

Rubsrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/12/2012 06:29

Baah thanks

Only I think the shark has sunglasses?

@rusrub: it's in the public queue, waiting for approval!


Rubsrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/10/2012 13:00

I created a picture and submited to weekly challenge but nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

cure (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 1/9/2012 16:43

 A chameleon, specifically.

I call vase critter

Losm (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 1/9/2012 15:08

 Oh, wait, shit. I keep forgetting that it's actually a lizard, and not a turtle... >_>

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 1/9/2012 10:55

Great idea, I'm looking forward to see the results!

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 1/9/2012 09:27

If I can make time I'd like to have a go at the lizard.  Can already picture my own version in my mind.   Not much free time these days though due to work and also rehearsals begin this week too.  But yeah it's a nice challenge.

Difficult , but nice challenge

No, the point is to only mimic the subject matter, reinterpret the character in your own style. Doing a whale would be more of an April Fool's thing for Blick.

(not the style or colours)

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/9/2012 04:16

I'm thinkin' that shark will get the most attention . . .

PixelSnader (Level 2 Peon) @ 1/9/2012 04:03

Would we also be allowed to mimic the style and colors but slightly changing the subject. For instance using a whale instead of a shark? 

Chibiwing (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/9/2012 02:35

I'm going for the vase.  Not sure what I'll try.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/9/2012 01:43

Cool challenge.

For some reason I thought that Crouching Lizard was Kazuya Mochu's.

CPearson (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/9/2012 01:40

This looks like it'll bea tough one.

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/9/2012 00:37
