Optional Bonus Challenge: Give us some background info on your creature in your description :)

Canvas size - Max 128 x 128.
Colours - Max 18.

Create an image depicting a sunset - in greyscale. This means you must not use any saturation in your image. A good way to work this out is by looking at the hexcodes - they should all be in this format:

#XYXYXY.

So #a3a3a3 would be acceptable for this challenge, as would #525252 or #000000.

Canvas Size - Max 200 x 200.
Colours - Min 8; Max 16.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

Animation - Optional.

Unfortunately, due to a technical issue caused by our newest moderator, Big Brother, this week's challenge has had to end prematurely. Thankfully, we have a backup challenge though! This challenge will run from now until the challenge countdown timer reaches 0. As this challenge is only lasting a few days we have decided to make it a fairly simple one.

For the remainder of this week you are challenged to draw an existing lunder from one of the three known rodens, using only 6 colours and a small 60 x 80 canvas size.

Canvas Size - Max 60 (width) x 80 (width). This is the entire canvas, so everything must fit within this particular canvas size.
Colours - Max 6.
Transparency - Optional. Only use transparency if you are creating more than one lunder.
Animation - Optional.
 

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

 

UPDATE: None of you guys seem to be taking this new challenge seriously! So I guess the best thing to do is just revert back to the original challenge :o
