This week's challenge, PJ Concept Motors,  comes from panorama challenge winner, raynoa. PJ Concept Motors = Pixelling a concept car or vehicle. Vehicle must have connection with some pixelart technique. For example, some zoomed dither technique on the hood, or square pixelled lights, pixelled-dither pattern on wheels, etc. Start your engines!

Rules:
  • Colors - 26 including transparency if used
  • Canvas Size - 190 x 140 max.
  • Transparency - Allowed (www.iaza.com)
  • Animation - Allowed
  • Other - The pixel must contain a 'PJ Motor' label using original pixel fonts. It can be placed anywhere on the canvas but should be artistically placed.

Tips/Refs -
Usually concept cars are drawn in different angles and perspectives, so feel free to experiment with it. Isometric is cool.

Here are some tutorials on concept cars.
