This week we are creating a collection of postal stamps representative for our Pixel Joint community and our love for pixel art.

You can choose any  theme you like, whenever it is related to pixel art, or not. Beautiful landscapes, famous painting reproductions, architectural landmarks, classic video games, cute animals, historical figure portraits (Pixel Nerd included) - all are very welcome. Just remember to make sure it is a Pixel Joint stamp by adding some form of a logo or writing at least the "PJ" letters. If you want to add the price of the stamp, use the imaginary pixel currency (for example 10px).

We will be using mail24 palette created by Hyohnoo.

And for the canvas you can choose one from the examples or create your own by using the provided frame tilesset of 16x16 tiles (so the canvas dimensions have to be a multiple of 16px).



Canvas Size - Any as long as it is a multiple of 16 and uses the provided frame tileset.
Colors - Max 25, only colors from the provided palette + transparency.
Transparency - Only in the stamp borders.
Animation - No.

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