Pixel Art Challenge: Postcards From Pixel City


Create an image depicting a real country on Earth, that you haven't been to before. This could be an ideal travel spot, a place you're interested in or maybe just a completely random location.

It can be in the form of a postcard, but it doesn't have to be. It can just be a regular image depicting a real location from that country.

Obviously we're not going to check your passports, so we can only hope for your co-operation and honesty :o

Also, don't forget to mention your chosen country somewhere in your submission.

Canvas size - Exactly 200 (width) x 150 (height).
Colours - Max 25.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.

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

I randomed the ocean.

Hmm, sounds interesting. I'm in! Will be my first.

 I call dibs on Egypt! Never been there, but I'll definitely go visit sometimes :)

I'm going to draw it as I imagine it. Weird and strange! :)

I made a promis to go to South Africa with somebody once, a promis now broken. Maybe I can find time for this challenge.

 Hmm... I live in Canada. I was once to Aruba when I was six(?) but I remember nothing. I've been to the US once for a judo competition. So I guess those two are out if I decide to do this.

Can it be on the way to the place? With the place on the background? or no?

Chibiwing (Level 4 Deputy) @ 6/13/2011 12:04

I hope they allow that rotation; there are plenty of postcards that are taller than they are wide.

pixel_rob (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 6/13/2011 11:16

Can the postcard be 200 height and 150 width instead of the other way round?

I have only been in the US, Israel and Palestine.

I might enter this.. I've always wanted to go to the lands of the hollow Earth myself

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 6/13/2011 07:48

Since I've only been to Canada and the US, this shouldn't be hard! 

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/13/2011 06:40

Does it have to be what it actually looks like (references etc.) or what we imagine it to look like? 

Juniorps (Level 5 Soldier) @ 6/13/2011 05:01

 France and EUA

Chibiwing (Level 4 Deputy) @ 6/13/2011 00:15

For once I'm glad I haven't been out of the US.  Now where should I... Ohmygosh, I just had the best idea! OoO

tanuki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 6/13/2011 00:12

US, UK, Canada, South Korea, and, if Hong Kong counts, China are all out for me. =P
