Pixel art, or spriting, is the art of using every pixel to its full potential. Working with a limited palette and small scale it's your job to make things look good and readable at the tiniest size with very little information. The July Bonanza is for those who want to try something new, or who have tried the medium before and want an excuse to expand their knowledge and build a portfolio!
Challenge requirements: - 15 sprites at a minimum, can be characters, environments, effects, objects etc. - Has to be pixel art, no vectors, mosaics, pointillism
Optional extras: - Combine it with an RPG challenge or write a story for a nice, cohesive project! - Try different stuff, like sidescroller tilesets, top-downs or character animations - Make the challenge daily

You've brushed up your manual AA skills, sharpened your pencil brush and limited that palette to less colours than the rainbow.
