Noticed this contest while I randomly stumbled across this site, and it encouraged me to pick up pixel art again after more than a year of not bothering with it. I decided to give it a go and see how far I'd get in this contest. I'm obviously a bit rusty, and I might make some much needed improvements to this sprite later, if time permits.
Also, don't worry. I don't expect you to give away a Keldeo to some random passerby like me. Just wanted to make that clear, so I don't come across as just wanting to get a free event from you guys.
Pichu gets his legendary swordsman on.
The picture's pretty self-explanatory I guess. The samurai helmet is based off Keldeo's hair and funky brows. The sword draws inspiration from Keldeo's horn, while Pichu's blue clothing/thing mirrors his "fur". I guess this kinda ties in to the Pokemon Conquest game as well, now that I think about it.
Well, 'nuff said.
EDIT: Updated some stuff. Think I'm mostly done with this one.
