CHALLENGE: The Pillow Shading Challenge!

This week you are challenged to create something using the controversial pillow shading technique.

Canvas Size- Exactly 400 x 100.
Colours - Unrestricted. Because pillow shading can often require a large number of colours, we recommend saving your work in the .png file format this week, as .gif can only handle 256 colours.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

If you are having trouble with this technique have a look at this handy video tutorial.


CHALLENGE RULES

  • Participants have until this upcoming Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) to submit their entry (strict). Don't forget to check the 'Submit to weekly challenge' checkbox.
  • Only new pixels allowed.
  • Open to all members.
  • Posting WIPs in this thread or in new threads in the WIP section is highly encouraged, but ONLY SUBMIT YOUR FINAL ART.

CHALLENGE JUDGING

  • Every Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) the previous week's entries are judged.
  • Every week a new voting poll will be posted for previous week's entries.
  • Winner announced the following week.

CHALLENGE PRIZES/GOODIES

  • Top three finishers will receive an award displayed in your PJ gallery profile for all to see and envy.
  • Top finisher gets to call the following week's challenge...sweet.
  • 'Participation' ribbons will be given for all who enter.
  • No matter what happens you get challenged :)

I gotta agree with everyone so far, I'm bowing out of this one.  I participate in the challenges to try and increase my pixel skills and, frankly, this won;t help me one bit .  I'm going to sit back and see what the big boys do when they mess around with bad techniques.  Let the horror begin!

This is so hard o__o
I know I started out with pillow shading six years ago but I really can't remember how to do it now. I'll post a WIP soon to see if I am following the rules.
Then again, I don't think it would be a good thing to win this... foolish challenge...

Edit: joke or not, this was interesting:
