From challenge winner Stickman
comes this challenge.
Choose the title of an existing book or novel (from the bible to Harry Potter) and pixel an original cover (no refs) for it emulating this vintage console using the Amstrad CPC palette and using only a 1x2 pixel brush (no single pixels). The book title must be included in your entry, author may be included
Size template with 1x2 grid (vertically only, grid goes the other way for landscape)
This means 160x200 measured in single pixels but pixelled using double pixels (1x2) as a coloring unit.
Color Palette - 16 colours from fixed palette (no 1 bits ;)
Canvas Size - 160x200 horizontal or vertical
There is a link to a tutorial about making 1x2 brushes in MSPaint, see the links page.
