Pixel Art Challenge: April Fools Gallery 2016


It's been a while since the last April Fools Gallery challenge - 6 years, in fact. Maybe it's time we had another one...

The idea is to study the PJ gallery of another pixel artist. Look at the techniques they use, the colours they pick, the subject matters they gravitate towards, etc... Then once you feel like you have a grasp of that person's style, create an image that will fool us into thinking that it's theirs.

Important: make sure that you are not plagiarising someone else's work! Even though the goal is to 'fool' us, your submission must still be entirely your own work.

Also, don't forget to mention the name of your chosen pixel artist in your description.
