CHALLENGE: Dithered Dunes

This week you have to use some kind of dithering! Do you like the mathematically perfect geometric type, do you create new stylish textures, or do you manage to mix 2 or more colors in a completely original way? You are encouraged to experiment, go wild!

The theme is dunes, some kind of dune or desert or drought landscape, optionally with characters in them. Other than that, there are few limitations, so you can apply dithering in the way you think suits best.

Colors: max 32
Canvas: Any size, but the ratio must be 1:2 or 2:1. So width is height * 2 or height / 2, for example if your height is 50px the width can be either 25px or 100px.
Transparency: no
Animation: optional

Please post in the comments your favorite dithered pieces from the gallery to serve as inspiration!
