Pixel Art Challenge: Pillow Shading on purpose


This week we want you to depict a scene/sprite with at least one part/object pillow shaded. You read it right! We want you to find a good way to use this (lack of) technique.

Bonus Challenge: Make the whole scene/sprite pillow shaded (good luck on that)

Colors: 16max

Canvas: 160x120px max.

Transparency: optional

Animation: optional

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

Time to bring out that "Advanced pillow shading" Sonic sprite tutorial from 2005?

I could just post one of my old pixel dolls, but that would be cheating, wouldn't it?
