in art •  9 months ago


Welcome back my fellow steemians to another round of
Pixel Art Weekly!!

Congratulations to both
for their tie on Round 17!

Looking forward to seeing you two battle it out in
Round 18!!

Speaking of battles, let's get into this week's theme announcement.

One of my most favorite moments in video games has always been boss battles.
The moment of defeating an epic boss and dancing around the living room like a fool will never grow old for me.
Having said that...
The theme for Round 18 of
Pixel Art Weekly.....

~The Boss~

(from my own pixel art game Galagan's Island, artwork by @shayne)

It's time for you Paladins of Pixel to create for us your concept of,
The Boss!
Don't let any of these examples intimidate you, they are simply meant to inspire.

As always, keep in mind that the theme for every round of
Pixel Art Weekly
is interpretive!
Which means that even this....The Boss...is ABSOLUTELY acceptable...and encouraged...

That shark creature looks the best to me. Very intimidating.
