CHALLENGE: Animals_14

We all loved the horror month, but is there something completely different that we also love? Something that could help us move on? What is an oposite of inanimated scary movie posters? Of course it's ANIMATED SPRITES OF CUTE ANIMALS!

To make things more interesting this week's challenge will be a variant of a random palette challenge. The colours are not random per se, but their choice criteria has little to do with actual colours - those are the colours with animals in their names.

The list in alphabethical order:

#54626F black coral
#C19A6B camel/lion
#FFFF99 canary
#c41e3a cardinal red
#81613c coyote brown
#A7F432 lizard green
#979AAA manatee
#74C365 mantis
#FDDDE6 piggy pink
#00CCCC robin egg
#FA8072 salmon
#59260b seal brown
#DBD7D2 timberwolf
#8a9a5b turtle green

Animals_14 palette:

Canvas Size: 80x80.
Colours: Max 15 (14 from the palette + transparency)
Transparency: Required.
Animation: Required.
Cuteness: Required. (You can choose a predator but it have to look cute not scary).

Bonus challenge: - draw one of the animals from the colour name list.

i dont understand the transparency: Required. I mean, like no background so the background is indeed transparent?

Also, the text on this post is like darkgreen and cannot be read on the grey background

Yes, the background is like no background, just like in your avatar :)

Excited for this one! So, just to make sure, we're supported to make one of the listed animals, right?

I don't plan on going in this direction, but for the sake of argument, are we restricted to real animals or are fantasy animals, like pink dragons and stuff, accepted?

I'm pretty we are able to draw any animal and that the listed animals are the source of the color palette: "The colours are not random per se, but their choice criteria has little to do with actual colours - those are the colours with animals in their names.".

Drawing one of the listed animals is a 'bonus challenge', you can pick any animal you like, on the list, off the list, and we'll even be happy to accept fantasy animals :)
