Haiku poems require the precise and thoughtful picking of each word, making sure that each is carefully placed to give the desired effect. In this way haiku are similar to pixel art. Therefore skamocore challenges you to pixel a scene based off one of the haiku from the list provided below.

Colours: 17 max
Canvas Size: exactly 50(height) x 70(length)
Transparency: No
Animation: No

Haiku to choose from:
• 1. An old pond!
A frog jumps in-
The sound of water.

• 2. No one travels
Along this way but I,
This autumn evening.

• 3. Clouds appear
and bring to men a chance to rest
from looking at the moon.
(by Matsuo Basho)

• 4. A mountain village
under the pilled-up snow
the sound of water.

• 5. A lightning flash:
between the forest trees
I have seen water.
(by Masaoka Shiki)

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
