Welcome you pixel junkies to Round 11 of
Pixel Art Weekly!

Congratulations @megii for winning week 10!
You did an amazing job, especially for your first efforts at pushing pixels.

So let's get to it....
It's time for the #pixelartweekly
Theme Announcement!

This week's theme is...
Insects/Bugs

(via DeviantArt.com)

As always, the theme is interpretive. You can create real insects, fake insects, insectoids, or perhaps you're a programmer and you have a completely different opinion on what a bug is.
(via kickstarter.com)

The examples I share are simply meant to inspire you.
Like this abstract insect...

Don't forget, bonus cookies given to all animated works.

You can choose to do a multitude of insects, just please lump them together into a single entry.
Such as...

Pixel Art Weekly
will reward you with
5 SBD!

Hey Jonny,

The last week was a great motivation for me, so I decided to create an animation this time.

You can find the whole creating process of it here: https://steemit.com/art/@megii/first-try-of-pixel-art-gif

I will appreciate your ideas what should be the backround!

Thank you a lot for such an opportunity!

Even just a solid color background will help the art stand out more.

Leave it as is.
If you make the top 3 again, I'll pick one.
Probably the light blue.

That's definitely a possibility for a theme in the future.
Thanks for the suggestion!

Hey Jonny, i love what you are doing with the Pixel Art Weekly. It's a Really fun awesome contest series.

I'm ramping up to build some of my own projects to support artists on and off of steem, and advocate for artists needs on steem and other blockchain networks. In the future I hope to be able to facilitate new projects and support existing projects like your own.

I'm looking for some help finding the best artists on steem, so if you have any suggestions let me know, or post them here:
https://steemit.com/art/@solar/best-artists-on-steem-15-usdbd-give-away-help-me-support-artist-on-steem

I am giving out a small amount of SBD and up votes for people who help me find artists already using this platform.

Thanks, again, i appreciate your work.

Take a look at the original post, this one is the update.
In the original under "rules" is a fantastic link to get you off on the right foot.
Piskel is a great free software for creating pixel art also.
