(Warning! South Park Style Humor)
These are the rules:

You have NTL for your sketch. IF you go beyond the assigned time limit , you have to post WHATEVER you have done after the time has expired, along with the FINAL drawing.

Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.

They can be done on any medium.
If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.

You can post an entry at anytime for the topic presented on this thead BEFORE the voting thread for THE WEEK has been posted.
The artist also has to post total length of time it took and program used.
Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.

Another Self-Portrait thread, another actual-portrait-eluding entry, this time complete with bag on head. Includes beautiful Windows Default Purple background for easy transparency integration into your favorite mid-90's sprite engine.

PS CS2, I dunno... maybe about an hour or so. I started by creating a 16-pixel brush and setting the PS grid to work on the large version...

...then, adapting the dimensions of the large version, transferred it to actual pixel-sized goodness.

Total dimensions:
Large: 304x640
Small: 19x40 (304/16 x 640/16)

Total Colors (including purple transparency color): 12
