This is all I managed to do with 75 pixels. It probably looks like a dog, but it's not. It's a monkey :)

@HecticHermit The hat alone is about 50 px. The whole thing is probably 150-200 px. And since there aren't little girls with superpowers on Armor Games, I will achieve my goals of world domination!

@ChromeDeathRazor You monster!

kegaumongo I think it looks more like a cat than a dog.

I had one original idea, but I couldn't do it with the allotted amount of pixels, so I just made this instead.

@MagicTree I originally had it for 50 pixels for the 50 daughters of Nereus, but I could only write Project Nereus in a somewhat aesthetically pleasing manner in a banner

but then I changed my mind and named this "I Want to Be Your Mental Poop" and stuck with 75 because 100 would have been too easy. So 75! :D

@Ernie15 Do you have a less blurry version?

I'm not sure how to make it less blurry, as I drew it at a very small size (the actual size is about as big as the monkey's eye). Resizing the image is what made it so blurry.

I have a very "unusual" way to make it less blurry.

You can either make the image in Illustrator or the free Inkscape (vector images) using on pixel sized dot and then scale within the program, export, and upload. This would be somewhat difficult.

Or, what I did, was use GIMP (or Photoshop). Make the image with a 1 pixel brush. It will be very small. So zoom in on the image in GIMP (or Photoshop) and make sure the image fits within the viewable area of your screen.Then print screen (Prnt Scrn button on PCs). Then paste the image back into the image editor. Crop out the unwanted portions and save or export the image, upload, and post.

That how I did mine at least.

When you resize images in GIMP you should be able to choose the kind of interpolation you want to be applied. If you choose "no interpolation" the squares will remain squares and they won't be blurred.

I actually kind of prefer the blurry version, but it doesn't really fit in with the other entries. Perhaps that's why I like it.
