Pixel Art Challenge: Splitting 10s


Use a canvas which is split equally into two parts - either horizontally or vertically - to create a piece with a subject matter of your choosing. However, your piece must be a cohesive whole, not two individual pieces placed next to one another.

Each half of your canvas must use individual palettes that are shown below. You must use all ten colours from both palettes - ten colours on one half of the canvas, ten on the other; with a grand total of 16 unique colours.

Optional Bonus Challenge: Avoid creating a portrait.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted.
Colours - Exactly 16. Use all the colours from the top part of the palette for one half of your image and the lower part of the palette for the other half of your image.

Commodore 64 palette by Ptoing.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

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

Palettes from Ptoing are called ptalettes or is it simply a typo?

  "split equally into two parts" Do the parts need to be two rectangles or can we also do stuff like every second line pallete two?
