Oh gosh, 7 days later.... This is'nt really my style but, I think I made it.
Due to the time limit it's not quite finished yet, I just had to learn where and how to put the pixels along the way, not quite as easy as isomertic... a lot harder!

UPDATE: 17-12-08
I realized that I could keep on editing forever at this one, so I stopped at this point. At least it's been improved. And the stong thick black outline on the bushes is because else it focused to much on the tree and the car.  I'm not sure if I'm aloud to edit the picture, if not, I can re-edit.

@Slemsvamp - and they let you put it? xD

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/4/2010 22:50

Actually there's 4.

You can see a red dot if you zoom it twice! it's 3 colors! ><

 Wow.. this reminds me of the tones in oekaki!

Really good use of colors!

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/1/2009 18:56

Hey! Thanks for having too much spare time. No more editing.


CrisNMP (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/1/2009 18:46
There are 4 colours used.
Apart from the 2 obvious ones black and red were also used,
You used black on the middle-right part of the picture(hill)
and one red pixel on the bottom left part of the tree .

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/18/2008 14:46
Now I think it's only 2 colours

FishBoy (Level 1 Private) @ 12/18/2008 07:13

Its a red pixel on the tree.

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/17/2008 21:37
I think it is 2 colours, I can't find a third one.

pipe (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/17/2008 14:27
correct me if I am wrong but arent you supposed to use ONLY 2 cols...?

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/15/2008 22:45
Thanks Adam!  The road is a miserable failure at the moment because I already had a finished peice I was still adding stuff on, but at the last day I thought it lookt terrible so I started doing this one. Took me the rest of the night and finally I didn't have time enough to make the road perfect. But it will be, today.

ManningKrull, there will be alot of things added later on today, and defenitely shadow under the car.

I really love the style of the diagonal lines shading on the car! The puddle under the car is a great touch, but it would probably look a little more realistic if there were a shadow under the car as well. Excellent work.

Adam (Level 9 Major General) @ 12/15/2008 10:44
A brave attempt. While you're at fixing the bushes I suggest aligning the perspective of the road to that of th VW. Though it may be that my eyes are just fooling me.

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/14/2008 21:43
Yeah, as I mentioned, it's not quite finished. Don't feel like adding anytihng at it atm cuz I've redone it prob 5 times, and im just sick of it.

I will fix the bushes, but not today.

Shadow-gamer (Level 5 Captain) @ 12/14/2008 21:37
My only critique is that the bushes are just blobs.
The rest is great though.
