    You want to make 1 pixel art of something from both Trove and Terraria? If so, go for it.
    If you want to make 2 pixel arts, feel free but only the best of them will count.

    Your fanart is pixel art, as it is made of, well, pixels. Errors don't "de-rank" it from being one.

    I respect that this is your giveaway and that you are free to make the entry requirements whatever you like, but this reply bothers me quite a bit.

    I think the amount of emphasis you put in the original post on quality and minimal standards is driving a lot of entrants away and causing an unhealthy amount of anxiety for others. My initial read of it was "if you do not have the necessary artistic talent, don't even bother entering because you have no chance". I am not alone in thinking this. There was even another user on the first page who flat out told you they wouldn't be attempting because they didn't think they were good enough. This thinking is further reinforced by the fact that you are "professionally" nitpicking the best entry that the thread has so far, which far exceeds the quality of anything posted in any of the other contests I have seen on the forums recently. Recent posts by that entrant even show that they are pretty concerned that they even hit your minimal bar.

    Anyways, if you were wondering why the entries have been slow, reasons stemming from the causes of the above may be why. The point of me telling you this now is not to call you out or express frustration, but to give you a chance before the deadline to change what you are doing in order to get more user involvement (and for that involvement to be fun, not anxiety ridden).

    On a personal note, I think your costume is exceptionally good.

    Noted. Sorry, but I am really nitpicky with everything - and I mean everything - so it's bound to happen here as well. Yet again, with these contests I will only really be ranking the submissions by quality once there will be more than 5 submissions per contest.

    As for you, it's fine if your pixel art has errors - it just means you have to educate yourself later if you want to do better at drawing pixel art. Things like hueshifting, antialiasing, avoiding pillow-shading and others are important to make a pixel art look good.
    Even if the art itself isn't as professional, that doesn't mean it's not bad. I still see that you put time into this, which I can respect.

    Whoa, now that I like! Looks damn great!

    You're currently on first place in the Art Contest due to no one else submitting any entries to it yet. Good job!

    Thank you for your explanation...

    I modified a bit and reused the background
    See if this is more like pixel art?
