I originally had more to this.  I was working on bomber pinup model riding a bomb above it, but i couldn't get her face looking right with just 2 colors so I scrapped it.  For a while, there was more dithering throughout too, but I thought it looked way too noisy with the high contrast of the colors, so I took that out too and left the accents. 

I was also was going to animate a line-by-line, but I forgot once I got rolling and it's more work than I care to do to work backwards.  Maybe I'll edit some things in before the deadline.

I had a ton of fun with this.  I used to draw a lot of cars, but hadn't done it in years.  Original car.

Cool stuff man! Car windows reflect nicely the era of PC98. I got these old game opening scenes in my head when looking at your car. And I like shadows on the wheel, the solo ;)

Haha no worries. Just thought I'd explain. I forgot to say that in the description.

I actually didn't see the line at the right T_T
I'm doing awful aren't I. I just saw the doorhandle and the bolts and saw all the horizontal lines (without seeing the verticle line)

Sorry again. -_-

Actually, even though it wasn't required, everything is connected but the door handle and the lug nuts.  I thought about connect them or leaving them out, but I liked how they looked so I left them as is.  Even the top design and my signature on the bottom are connected to the car by a dark line going down the right side (that is lost to the Pixel Joint grey).

Oops,my bad - I thought that was an actual required rule.

That wasn't actually a strict rule, it was something you could try to do as well, but didn't have to do necessarily

If this is meant to be for the weekly challenge, I think you may have missed the rule about the dark pixels all being connected. in some way, like a constant line drawn by the Etch A Sketcxh.
