Pixel Art Challenge: Wacky Weapons


Create a sprite of an new and original weapon. Your sprite should depict something intened to be a weapon, rather than an existing object just used as a weapon (so a frying pan used as a blunt weapon wouldn't be acceptable).

You're strongly encouraged to think outside the box, so try to think as creatively as possible. Examples: an angry hedgehog on a stick or a deadly moustache.

Canvas Size - Max 150 x 150.
Colours - Max 20.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.

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

Also protip: you can fit more of your weapon if you draw it at a 45 degree angle

@Alex Pang: Yes
@yrizoud: I doubt it
@Noet: Probably not, especially since the max is 150x150, and that's already small to begin with, just give the weapon more details

is it possible to have a sprite (using the wacky weapon) in the result?

yrizoud (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 2/6/2012 14:07

I'm pretty sure this challenge is a nod to a specific classic strip from VG Cats.

ratchet and clank? Its a game btw...

Xamllew (Level 3 Chief) @ 2/6/2012 12:25

Or rifle + hatchet = Ratchet?


Actually I'm pretty sure I've seen that before somewhere.

Alex Pang (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/6/2012 12:02

 Am I allowed to combine stuff? Like a pistol+ a hammer = a pammer?
