I meant like if you had the original sprite pasted and you just copied it pixel by pixel. I sometimes do that to practice.

Nope, totally original artwork. Wouldn't that kinda be... you know, plagiarism?

It's made of clay

Question: Would people prefer if I posted them as I made them, or save them up and put my favourites into big squares?

I would Prefer it if you posted them as you made them, it gives me more time to appreciate each one without being swamped with cats every couple of weeks or so.

I like this one a bunch, actually, it must be hard to emulate a medium with another medium.

I disagree.
Waves of large amounts of anything is usually less enjoyable than a steady stream of anything.

Well of course I did.

@ GIR I would totally do that but it turns out there are no craft stores on campus so I can't get clay :/

That would be cool :0



Jethawk sort-of suggested it, although it didn't turn out quite the way I'd originally pictured it.

I know it's intended to replicate Pixel's style, but I always get reminded of Daniel Remar when I see you make these. :mahin:
