Pixel Art Challenge: April fools gallery 2021


It's time again for this PJ yearly tradition, the April fools challenge!

You're challenged to make a piece in the style of another pixel artist. Who inspires you, and can you fool your audience into thinking the work belongs to them? Please link to the artist you're imitating in the description of your piece.

Also, click here to see last years edition as an example.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - As many as you need.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

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

Does the artist have to be from Pixel Joint or can they be found on twitter?
