Use these simplified shapes of France and Sweden to create something using either Manupix's or Noet's award winning palettes.

In the red corner, we have Manupix's palette, from France.




And over in the blue corner we have Noet's palette, from Sweden.
Special thanks to Jinn for the idea of using country shapes as a pixel art canvas. Here are two examples to illustrate the idea.

Canvas Size
- Use one of the templates above. You may rotate or flip the canvases as long as you don't distort any pixels while transforming the shape ie. you need to just stick to rotating at 90 or 180 degree angles.
Colours - Max 17. Use only colours from your country's palette shown above (plus transparency). So, if you pick Manupix/France, use the first palette; if you pick Noet/Sweden, use the second palette. No palette swapping.
Transparency - Required. Must only be used outside your chosen country's shape.
Animation - Optional.

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