It's gonna be real hard to pick the ones to vote for :/

 71 afros.. i think what appealed to me the most was the size and theme..  'as long as it has an afro, it doesn't matter what you draw'..

I think the key to ensuring participation is hair styles. After all, a high proportion of pixel artists are hairdressing diploma drop-outs.

 Over 60 entries... impressive O_o

We need more challenges like this! :)

good god..so many afros

Stratto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/9/2011 15:01

So apparently people really like afros

offwhite (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/8/2011 10:24

Yeah, the tiny size definitely helps motivate me atleast.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/8/2011 06:40

Tiny size helps too I expect.

offwhite (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/8/2011 06:35

This weeks challenge is going to be packed! Tuesday and there's already 10 entries :D Afro theme is clearly a winning theme <3

Updated the challenge. From what I've seen, requiring transparency may be holding a bunch of entries back, so I've loosened the transparency rules.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 11/7/2011 03:04

 I actually thought I'd need more colors for what I'm making. Turns out I don't :)

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 11/7/2011 02:55

=P Why would you complain then?! Aha, you can literally double the amount of colors you're using.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 11/7/2011 02:41

 nnnooooooooooooooooooo oh well I'm only using like 8 colors anyways :)

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 11/7/2011 02:06

Always ;o                     

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 11/7/2011 01:50

 I'm going to nitpick and ask if transparency counts as one of those colors :)

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 11/7/2011 01:22

Damn you, l'm tooooo buuuusy to have you dump such an irresistable challenge on my platter! Two game projects, a website being finished, and Skyrim.... Will have to do it though <3

 I expect funny things to come of this...

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/7/2011 00:17

I was thinking something more like this.

tanuki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 11/7/2011 00:04

Maybe something like this...
