“You're flying Buzz!", "No Woody we're falling in style!”

I'm sure you have imagined at least once how specific scenes would look like from the eyes of a bird soaring in the sky. And this week puts you behind the eyes of that bird.

You can either choose between a top-down / top-down2 or an isometric view
 

The scene doesn't have to be something specific, however, make sure that a lot happens on the ground. A war scene, buzzing city or thrilling race are good examples.

Canvas Size - Exactly. 200 (Width) x 150 (Height)
Colours - Max. 20
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.



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