So here's my first ever attempt at pixel art (properly):
Not great, but since I spent embarassingly long on it, I thought I might as well post it here. I've no great aspirations to become an artist, but the ability to make a few small pixel drawings for my games would be good. So I thought I'd practice with this competition.
Then when I'd finished I realized I wasn't even a member of these boards yet. So hello!
EDIT: I assumed it was good enough for you to be able to tell what it was, but looking at it... You can probably tell it's a smiley person holding someone else's head. He has a cape, and they evidently live in a universe with questionable physics. He also has large hair and weird robotic tentacle things coming out of it, eating said head. Like a sci-fi medusa. Please don't ask why; I just didn't know what to put
