Pixel Art Challenge: Etch A Pixel


Recently the creator of the Etch A Sketch, André Cassagnes, passed away.

This week, as a tribute, create an image using Etch A Sketch 'restrictions' - ie. using the canvas size and colours shown below:

Optional Bonus Challenge: Make sure that all dark grey pixels are connected, similar to all lines being connected in a real Etch A Sketch.

Canvas Size - Exactly 240 x 180. Either horizontal or vertical.
Colours - Exactly 2. Use only the two colours shown above.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

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

TeleSketch hm? interesting..

I'm in and going for a Spanish theme.

I used to have this : it was so great and looking at it again kind of makes me sad.. I wonder whatever happened to it. I forgot how great the dials are on this design.


Pretty neat how the picture features such a beat up and grungy looking one


I was looking at the Ohio Arts website and their nanoblocks are really neat. I never heard of them before.

 I used to love Etch A Sketch toys, maybe I'll make a little something in its honor.

One of the best toys ever invented! In Spain this is known as 'Telesketch'.
