For the weekly challenge of 'drawing something old' I thought it would be fun to work with cool colors, and after selecting a nice blue shade from the NES palette I set down to draw an old, snowy mountain range.  The result was boring to me so I added a mountain pass and a small car bringing a family toward an uncertain destination.  The trees are there mainly for flavor and framing purposes, and I added a lake to keep the right corner from being empty and boring.  I could spend more time on the dithering and trees, but I'm fairly happy with the result. 

I hope you are, too!


Edit:  Did a quick animation of the car driving at unsafe speeds!

Nice usage of the 3 colours there.

Thanks.  Haha, I just realized I probably should've animated the lake somewhat.  Oh well, that's what happens at 12 am! :)

the car animation is a wonderful little touch to this. bold colors too, but I feel it works.
