It's time to head on over to the forum and vote for the latest pixel art challenge: Wilhelm Screamer.

Posted by skamocore @ 9/7/2009   |    6

Design your own fictional creature that makes the sound of the Wilhelm Scream. Try to really think about how the Wilhelm Scream sounds and consider what kind of creature would/could make that noise. The creature must be original and non-humanoid. You may add a background to your image, but it is not required.

For reference, some samples of real life animal noises can be found here and here

Edit: note that the purpose of this challenge is to depict a creature that makes the sound of the Wilhelm Scream (for example, the way a pig would oink or a cow would moo - see links above relating to animal sounds) as oppose to depicting a character who is shown as making this noise because they are in agony.

Canvas Size - Max 256 x 256.
Colours - Max 32.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
