 Oh damn, I might not be able to finish in time. Will submit a static sprite to the gallery, tho ;P

 I was planning on practicing animation anyways, now all thats missing is a cool Idea.

I love this challenge! What a pity I don't have a chance to participate this time...

 It says both new and original, so...

Does new mean actually new, or just an original character? Example: I've made sprite Snader before, would it still be allowed?

 "a sprite of an original character"

"the character by itself with a transparent background."

the singular nature of the prompt is pretty unambiguous - unless you really want to stretch it and say that the pair are a single character (like cait sith), probably best to stick to a single entity.

are we allowed to have more than one character and have them interact with eachother or are we limited to one character's animation

 bra-pa-pa-paaa-paaa-paaa bra-pa-paaaaaa!

nifty idea, I like it.  Looking forward to some tight animations :).

Stupid question: does the transparency count towards the color count?
