This week you are challenged to create something using the controversial pillow shading technique.
Canvas Size- Exactly 400 x 100.
Colours - Unrestricted. Because pillow shading can often require a large number of colours, we recommend saving your work in the .png file format this week, as .gif can only handle 256 colours.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.
If you are having trouble with this technique have a look at
this handy video tutorial .
The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
Yes, it is a bit early for an April Fools joke, but this is something that we thought would work better by pulling it off at the start of a challenge week.
Happy (almost) April Fools Day everyone! =)
