Yes, it is an another RPG party challenge but with a twist (pun intended). This time we want you to choose an existing musical group and draw sprites of it's members.

It doesn't matter if it is a rock band, jazz group, hip-hop squad or a string quartet. You can make them into standard RPG classes (ex.: James Hetfield - Barbarian, Kirk Hammet - Wizard, Lars Urlich - Thief) or into different races (ex.: Paul McCartney - Wood Elf, John Lennon - High Elf, George Harrison - Dark Elf, Ringo Star - Dwarf), or completely made-up classes (ex.: Scary, Sporty, Baby, Ginger, Posh).

If you don't want to draw all of the members, becasue you wan't to portray only those important ones and skip the bass player, or you have chosen Slipknot, please consider a minimum number of three sprites. No single performers allowed.

Character, and their RPG roles descriptions, would be highly appreciated.
Canvas Size - Max 200 x 200.
Colours - Max 33. Including transparency.
Transparency - Required. Must be used to separate each sprite.
Animation - Optional.


  • Participants have until this upcoming Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) to submit their entry (strict). Don't forget to check the 'Submit to weekly challenge' checkbox.
  • Only new pixels allowed.
  • Open to all members.
  • Posting WIPs in this thread or in new threads in the WIP section is highly encouraged, but ONLY SUBMIT YOUR FINAL ART.


  • Every Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) the previous week's entries are judged.
  • Every week a new voting poll will be posted for previous week's entries.
  • Winner announced the following week.


  • Top three finishers will receive an award displayed in your PJ gallery profile for all to see and envy.
  • Top finisher gets to suggest a future week's challenge. If you're a winner and you wish to submit your idea, send a message to Gecimen.
  • 'Participation' ribbons will be given for all who enter.
  • No matter what happens you get challenged :)

Hi, guys. (I edit because I solved the noob problem, I keep the post as WIP)

I copy here what I've written in the description btw ^^:

"I've work reallly fast today to meet the time limit! I leave many things to do like improve typography and add a little animation. I'll do it anyway soon. I hope you like it (and listen to these guys, they're awesome)."

I know typo and many things can be improved here, so tell me what you think!
