This challenge comes from 1-2-3 Dance! winner Yuanhai. Remember, if you win a challenge you get to pick a future challenge if you message a moderator, but even if you're not a winner and just have a cool idea we'll gladly take it in consideration!

Divide your canvas horizontally into four equal parts.
Draw a fruit or vegetable on the first section.
Draw an animal in the last section.
In the second and third section you draw the transition process between fruit and animal.
That is, turn your fruit or vegetables into animals in 3 steps!

Canvas: Max 100 x 100 per section. That means final art max 400 x 100.
Colors: Max 8
Transparency: Optional
Animation: No

(moderator note) Wowza, our last awards of 2021! Last year was full of challenges, and I don't just mean the weeklies...but it was also marked by an astonishing amount of master-class pixel art produced by Pixel Joint artists new and old. I hope as we celebrate these top 10 works from December, we also take a moment to appreciate everyone who created art last year, and contributed to keeping this community vibrant.

- Christie

The following pixel artists produced Pixel Joint's top rated pixel art for December 2021.

Quote of the Moment

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.
