Pixel Art Challenge: Easter Fools Gallery


You've been clamoring for it and here it is! This is PixelJoint's (almost) yearly April Fools Gallery challenge but with a twist!

Your task: Create a piece while immitating the style of another pixel artist.

The idea is to study an other pixel artist's style, techniques, color usage, etc and try to fool us into thinking the piece you create is theirs! (Note: Outright plagiarism will not be tolerated)

Bonus challenge: Make your piece Easter related in some way. Extra points will be awarded to those who do .

Make sure to mention the name of your chosen pixel artist in your description.

Previous April Fools Gallery challenges can be found here: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Unrestricted.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

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

Yes, must be a specific pixel artist, though it doesn't need to be someone at Pixel Joint as long as you can link to their gallery somewhere on the net.

seems like a fun challenge, though does it have to be a pixel art member? Or could i copy the artstyle of a videogame?

He, what a funny idea. I guess no one can copy my style. Because I have none (yet)

By the way, the link named [5] does not lead to the submitted pieces but the challenge-post, you probably tried to link to this: http://pixeljoint.com/pixels/challenge_item.asp?id=1509

Yay, it got fixed : )
