Pixel Art Challenge: Reflectopixels


Create an image showing a reflection. It should show something being reflected in the reflection and not just a shiny surface.

Please do not use semi-transparent pixels.

Optional Bonus Challenge: Can you do it without resorting to the reflection-in-water or reflection-in-mirror clichés?

Canvas Size - Max 175 x 175.
Colours - Max 20.
Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

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

I planning something that is probably way too ambitious for this.

@Tanuki - thats an optional element to the challenge, you can use your idea still!

 this is pretty much interesting. I already have some inspiration, even though idk if I'll be able to work on a challenge this week >_<

Don't worry, I just thought it was funny that you said that. I'm sure I'll come up with something good.

Sorry about my comment, I didn't see the image that you linked... I hope this won't discourage your idea, there are many ways to use it, countless situations and layouts...

Well crumbs, there goes my idea!

(no seriously) 

This one time I saw the reflection of my face in the reflection of my eyeball in the reflection of the inside of my sunglasses. It was unexpected.

Don't forget the third cliché, reflection-in-mirror-shades.

tanuki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 3/21/2011 00:28

 So it just needs to be the reflection itself right, and not necessarily include the thing being reflected? Like how this shows the reflection but not the actual landscape being reflected.
