I might have a go at a 1bit turtledove.

I expect some top shit with the extra-long time frame.  The palette attachment is a smart move, should straighten some problems out.  The range of subjects is really great too.  Kudos to the mind that spawned this.

I have a pear tree in my back yard. Ive been begging someone to get me a partridge to put in it for years!

my thought is probably not....but you could go with my suggestion of entering 12 pieces into the competition

Is it okay if we do something resembling a comic strip of each of the topics ( respecting the color limits of each of coarse). Secondly, i think each topic should be judged alone, considering there are limits to each of them and each limit makes way to a different style etc.
