I decided to start one, not for the challenge; (cause I can't enter anyway) but for fun. And since we are allowing shaped halves I thought I'd post to show that they can be shaped how ever you want but they have to be exactly 50/50 and the sides have to be connected so that they are still split in two.

Here's my entry, a work of one day, though some problems with dithering again... and the animation of the grass, any suggestions?

Probably the hardest challenge I will ever join.
Though palette, though rules, but very creative theme.

My entry is going well so far :)
Though, I'd like to keep the art to myself until I'm finished and sure it's of as high quality as I can get it to be. The palette gave me a great (and possibly disturbing) idea I'd love to do, so I'm pushing myself out of my comfort zone like I did with the piece Don't Laugh from last year (and that won me my first and so far the only actual winner ribbon).

Looking good fellows.
 
Philippe: Really impressive! That looks awesome, it's like Spring fighting a subtle revolution against a very cold Winter. (you're making things look better than I thought the palette was capable of).
 
Consalvo: nice stylized dither the animated shadow is also a nice touch.  Maybe add more grass (wrapping into the distance, in the background) so it's no a lone-standing piece.

How should we count that? Just by the unique colors? Because the grays will make it extremely difficult

what do you mean? count the color.. just divide the canvas into 2 sections to get the shape. I have started with a canvas of two colors split in half.. then mirrored shapes in 16x16 pixel tile shapes.

from

to

So, only the lower half of the palette within the blue area, and the upper half of the palette within the red area.

Whoa, so much details.



My WIP. I hope this shape will be accepted.
It's the homage to Junji Ito excellent horror manga Uzumaki (Spiral).
The tongue is shaded quite wrong, I need to fix that.
It's my first portrait ever and so far I'm satisfied with it.

Damn this challenge is actually hard. I'm probably not going to be able to finish this as I have troubles with textures. Everything ends up looking like sausage people.

Jinn: Thanks a lot! It'll be hard to finish..
 but I'm going to work on it all day and through the night starting this moment.

Gameboy: that'll work.. since we're allowing shaped sides we ought to let them in even if they aren't perfectly 50/50 (as long as they are very close).

TZero: keep it up! Looks good so far just remember no transparency in the end. I know this palette pretty much sucks but, if you find a way to use it; it can look pretty good!

||||, don't worry, I've checked the pure black & white split pattern with GIMP histogram and mean value of colours is 127,5, which means there's a 50/50 split.

It's a bit of a late note, but I've finished my entry.
I think I pushed myself too far out of my comfort zone though. :(

Racing to get this done, needs a little more work and a background!

The pallette is not so bad, I've used worse (example: all of my palettes) its very C64 with the greys!
