This week we want you to depict fire in movement. You can go for a sole flame sprite, or include the source of fire, or animate a whole scene with surounding environment. You are not limited to a typical fire colour palette. You can go for cold flame, chemical flame or magical flame, and be creative with your palette. The flame needs to be at least recognisable. The most important aspect in this challenge is animation and it have to consist at least 8 different frames.

Canvas: Max 100x100;

Colours: Max 9 (including transparency);

Transparency: Optional;

Animation: Required, (min. frames 8).

Let's draw some philosophers but with puns.

The idea is to choose a famous philosopher, historical or contemporary (you are not restricted to antiquity only, as the name of the challenge could suggest), create a word play with their name, and draw the result. Depending on the period it should be a sculpture, a painting or a photo, but we can be flexible if you get creative.

If you have no ideas for philosophers, names, or puns you can use one of these basic examples:

Sockrates
Planto
Aristurtle

Canvas:
Max 100x200 (vertical)
Colours: Max 32
Transparency: Optional (probably necessary for a sculpture and can be used for irregullar frames of painting or photo)
Animation: No
