Funny. Learning how to pixel art. People tend to recomend small palletes for beginners, so here I am, facing my first Challenge.

Even if my art isn`t good at all. Should I do it?

Pure black and white is not the "easiest" for pixel art, especially for a first piece.
But you should go for it! Why not? :)

Of course you should! It's nice to win ribbons and that makes it fun to shoot for, but the real fun is making the art! And it's helpful for improving your art too! I look at it as sort of a commission within the given boundaries. That way you don't have to decide the small details like canvas size, color palettes, should I animate it or not. At that point, you're only limited by your vast imagination. Just have fun!

I just noticed! Is that Domo back there, or is it a moose?

Hello, first time submitting for a challenge. Here's the WIP I've been working on for the most of today 

Hope you guys like it!

I'm at the polishing stage now, but it would be helpful to know what I did right/wrong.

It was a fun challenge!

I really enjoyed this one. I didn't even know a challenge was on until I saw someone posting black and white images and I thought... hey, that would make a great challenge! Sure enough, here we are.

Anyway, here's my submission. 8-9 hours -_-
