This week it's your task to animate an object or character that transforms or evolves into another. These can be your favorite pokemon, transformers, or werewolves, but you're also welcome to keep the subjects simple and instead go crazy on those transition effects!
Animating can be a lot of work, so to keep it simple the canvas is small.
Yes, it is an another RPG party challenge but with a twist (pun intended). This time we want you to choose an existing musical group and draw sprites of it's members.
It doesn't matter if it is a rock band, jazz group, hip-hop squad or a string quartet. You can make them into standard RPG classes (ex.: James Hetfield - Barbarian, Kirk Hammet - Wizard, Lars Urlich - Thief) or into different races (ex.: Paul McCartney - Wood Elf, John Lennon - High Elf, George Harrison - Dark Elf, Ringo Star - Dwarf), or completely made-up classes (ex.: Scary, Sporty, Baby, Ginger, Posh).
If you don't want to draw all of the members, because you want to portray only those important ones and skip the bass player, or you have chosen Slipknot, please consider a minimum number of three sprites. No single performers allowed.
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

After a lot of tinkering, from the depths of my secret Blender quantum-pseudo-pixelart laboratory, I have released a shader(material)-based CRT emulation process for Blender that aims to recreate the "feel" of CRT monitors.
This week, challenge winner sjd_sjd_ asks you to pixel a simile (no, not a smiley) as if it's literal. A simile is a metaphor or a way of figurative speaking, such as "Face like a dropped pie", "Grinning like a shot fox" or "Off like a frog in a sock". You can pixel any simile from any language including your own but make sure to write down what it is and what it means in your description. You can draw it as a scene or as a sprite.
Canvas size: Max. 120x120
Colours: Max 16.
