This week we want you to create two (or more sprites) that fit perfectly one into another, filling all the voids in contact. Please depict the sprites both by themselves and connected (can be in the preview or description if you want).
Canvas Size - Max 64x64px per sprite.
Colours - Max. 20
Animation - No.
The Johto Redrawn collaborative project is a pixel art re-imagining of the Johto region, from the Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal games, released between 1997 and 2001 on Gameboy and Gameboy Color.
The goal of the project was to redraw the entire Johto region in the contirbutors' own sprite styles, not unlike a reanimation collab.
It was started and coordinated by pixel artists audrey, Dewdneym, Foofarawr and PJ user Zaebucca!
The project has now reached a close, so you can look at the whole map on its dedicated website:
Create an animation of something rotating around its own axis! Any axis is allowed, as long as your animation has at least 2 unique positions that can't be made by flipping or rotating the canvas.
Bonus challenge: Use an odd number of frames.
Canvas Size - Max 64x64.
Colours - Max. 20:
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Yes, required.
For The Legend of Zelda's 35th anniversary, we want you to redesign Link's classic NES sprite:
This challenge is based on the same premise as "The New Bomber" challenge we had back in 2014, which you can check out if you want some inspiration:
The sprite must be original work - no sprite edits will be accepted. Feel free to change style and game genre, too!
Canvas size: Max 48x 48.
Colours: Max 8.
Transparency: Required, don't forget it counts as a colour!
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
