Pixel Art Challenge: Ides of March


icon
In honor of the Roman Empire and the death of its most famous and arguably best leader, Julius Caesar. This week's challenge is limited to 3 colors, red, yellow and black. Size and scope is up to you. Sample things include, Gladiators, warships, chariots, daily life, animals, scenes, weapons, architecture or anything else as long as it retains a Roman 'look'.

PS: It can be any shade of red, yellow and black even default MSPaint colors \o/

Let the almighty Wiki be your guide!

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

wikipedia is a wiki, so technically its both. pixelblink could mean "the almighty wiki (wikipedia)" as in, its the only wiki worthy of the word "almighty".

skeddles: you should try and take the whole week to make yours as good as possible instead of trying to be the first one to submit.
