Pixel Art Challenge: Start your Engines!

This week's challenge, PJ Concept Motors,  comes from panorama challenge winner, raynoa. PJ Concept Motors = Pixelling a concept car or vehicle. Vehicle must have connection with some pixelart technique. For example, some zoomed dither technique on the hood, or square pixelled lights, pixelled-dither pattern on wheels, etc. Start your engines!

  • Colors - 26 including transparency if used
  • Canvas Size - 190 x 140 max.
  • Transparency - Allowed (www.iaza.com)
  • Animation - Allowed
  • Other - The pixel must contain a 'PJ Motor' label using original pixel fonts. It can be placed anywhere on the canvas but should be artistically placed.

Tips/Refs -
Usually concept cars are drawn in different angles and perspectives, so feel free to experiment with it. Isometric is cool.

Here are some tutorials on concept cars.

This is a gallery of a concept car designer, for inspiration.

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

2jalonso: yes, of course, zoomed pixels will also be suitable here.

I understood it to be that the paint job on the vehicle can use for example, 2x pixels for design?

2Stickman: I mean that you can try to use square forms in designing of vehicle.

Good challenge! I'm a little confused about the "pixel art technique" bit. I'm just wondering if someone can make it a little more clear: "..must have connection with some pixel technique" as opposed to what exactly?
