ehmz... its not an excuse, cause

1. I have a new keyboard and I'm gonna give it a try
2. Ctrl+Z etc. is very useful when pixeling. (It were those keys that gave up on my previous keyboard).

What? Broken keyboad is just an excuse, you don't realy need keys for pixelling, and you can type. Anyway, mine is done for now. And again I used about half colours of given amount, 9 this time... I just can't imagine it with more colours.

it would be a very nice challenge for me, cause i cant really make small pieces... anyway, cause of a broken keyboard (cntrl and few other important keys) i cant compete in this challenge and well, a lack of ispiration this week is also a readon why its even less likely ill submit a piece for this week's challenge... nice idea though!

Yup, the canvas is kind of small, but thats the reason why this challenge is even greater!
