The final challenge in our Halloween-o'-thon - using tall pixels, depict a scene based on the Slender Man myth. You should at least include these characteristics of Slender Man in your entry:

  • Abnormally tall.
  • Lack of facial features.
  • Wearing a suit and tie.

Tall pixels mean that each pixel should be twice the height of a regular pixel. For some examples check out the previous tall pixel challenge. Remember to double check your pixels before submitting.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted. However, the height must be a multiple of 2.
Colours - Max 8.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

Create a set of at least four 64 x 64 achievement/trophy icons for an already existing game that does not currently have any achievements/trophies. Please check before you start your challenge entry.

You may place the icons on the canvas in any way you want; however, each icon should be separated by transparency. Also, please mention what each achievement is for in your description.

One example of well made achievement icons is Team Fortress 2. Note the consistent style and colour palette.

Canvas Size - Unrestricted, but each individual icon must be exactly 64 x 64.
Colours - Max 32.
Transparency - Required; but only to separate icons on the canvas.
Animation - No.
