Pixel Art Challenge: Selective Outlining

Using only 15 colors of your choice on a 150x150 canvas make an item on a transparent background which focuses on the SelOut (Selective Outlining) technique.

The pixel itself may be a figure, object or anything at all. While overall idea and general pixel prowess is of some importance in getting votes. The SelOut is what matters this week.

  • Canvas Size: 150x150 exactly
  • Colour Restriction: 15 color palette max  (16th color is transparency).
  • Transparency: Must use to best judge the SelOut technique used.
(download GIFFY from the FAQ page in the gallery or use www.iaza.com if needed. www.spriteart.com has a great SelOut tutorial [see the links page])

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

Kenneth Fejer uses sel-out on most of his work. Good reference.

Some Street Fighter games use of Sel-out isn't exactly the prettiest. I hope people do some more research and find a wider variety of references before taking this challenge head on.  Any way, good luck to all!
