CHALLENGE: April Fools Gallery II

Pixeljoint's first repeat challenge is to again go to another member's gallery study their pixels and fool us into thinking that person made it.
No copies, only 100% original work.
Think style, technique and artistic sensibility.
You must name the pixel artist in your submission.

No real rules this week but find the parameters set by the artist you choose.
This applies to general size, color choices and don't forget to pay attention to preview icons.

of course you can purple tree. you're free to submit as many as you can/want.

just remember that there's a difference between submitting 8 medium quality entries v/s a single top quality one.

P.S: YEPs! i know who I am going to imitate :D

it's hard to quote jal "learn from" someone and re-do a piece in style, you can see the style but it's hard to repeat it.

@purpletree, I am very pleased to see your 'wip'. I want you to go to skeddles gallery and website and notice HOW he pixels. He tries really hard to be precise and refined. I am working on a skeddles piece myself and I have trouble pinning his 'way'. You have done so extremely well. Focus on technique and lineart refinement which is something he always tries real hard to do.

I am moreso glad to see some vast improvement here from you and hope you keep focusing on the pixelart and not the point aquisition and chattering.

ps: You remind me of an old member called flameruler13. But I believe in you.

yeah im still trying to find my 'way', my style, to pixel arting. but im sure analysing other's pieces will be a slick opportunity to learn why they do what they do and how they use it to create a stunning piece.
 
I think we sometimes forget what its all about. Under the covers of all the ribbons, awards, competitions, ratings, posts, lies the pinnacle of this site: To pixel. Pixel till we can't pixel no more.

Alright kids... enough of this and on with the pixels!

Personally, I'm busy at work on my second and more ambitious ORIGINAL submission. Will try for a third if I finish early enough... any suggestions for a member to emulate?
