CHALLENGE: Pixie pixels

This weeks theme is - sprite - sprites !

You will be creating 2 sprites of a sprite, pixie, fay or fairy. The two sprites need to be the same character, drawn in two different sizes. One needs to fit on a 64x64 canvas, the other on a 16x16 canvas.

Both sprites will be submitted on one larger canvas, max 100x100. You don't need that much room, but this way you keep some space between the sprites if that helps to present them better.

For an example have a look at - this image from Damian , obviously these are 3 sprites but you only need 2.">

Bonus challenge: Also add a 32x32 version of your sprite! (so 3 in total)

Good luck with your pixie pixels!

Canvas size - Max 100x100.
Colours - Max 20. Use the same palette for both sprites.
Animation - No.
Transparency - Yes, required.
