Pixel Art Challenge: RGx Water


Draw a scene which involves water. For example: a calm lake, a gardener watering their plants or a mockup of an underwater level, anything goes as long as there is some water visible.

The twist: there are no "blue" values allowed. You can use any colors between [0,0,0] and [255,255,0], but make sure that each color has 0 for the blue component!  If using hex codes, colors will be #XXXX00.  (This also means no gray, white, or magenta, as all include some value in the blue channel).

Canvas Size - Max 128x96 (any orientation)
Colors - Max 16, all having 0 for the blue component.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

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

Maybe seeing like this would be easier to digest:?

@skamocore yeah that's a great point - with only 2 channels that's basically the universe (give or take some possible interpolation / rounding errors)

This is a great idea for a challenge. I'm gonna consider thinking about making something.

edit: actually, nevermind. Unless I'm mistaken, this is the entire palette you have to work with:
