Pixel Art Challenge: Apple ][


Given the recent passing of Steve Jobs, it seems only fitting to have an Apple-related challenge.

This week all we want you to do is use the Apple ][ palette shown below to pixel anything of your choosing.

Canvas Size -:
Exactly 140 (width) x 192 (height).
Exactly 280 (width) x 192 (height).
Colours - Max 15. Use only colours from this palette:

Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

I reorganized the palette by hue and lightness.

As you can see, excluding the greyscale, it alternates between pairs of equal or near equal hue that greatly differ in lightness and then a unique hue of roughly middle lightness. Each unique hue is around halfway between the previous and next hue pairs.

The lack of yellow confuses me. I don't normally work without any yellow at all. x_x

I think I might have a go at trying this one, for my first challenge attempt. I like having these challenges, cause I lack ideas of things to pixel D;
