This would have been a reallllyyy cool collab if it wasn't a challenge. It would be pretty awesome to see the whole world pixeled in this idea.
immediately thought it was japan because animu girl
saw glasgow in the corner of my eye
Throwing out some ideas at you all who are having trouble at having ideas.
Noet's palette is a nightmare for me. It's good, no doubt. I just can't handle.
I course you did understand, that was my question
Hm, to bad that I can not put some holes into sweden.
I don't understand the question. transparency is required outside the shape. the shape itself must be composed of opaque pixels of any color from the respective palette. there can be no transparent pixels within the shape.

I'm starring myself blind already looking for figures. I'm really curious what people will come up with. I might give it a go.
Instantly made me think of:
@Frost: Haha...can't believe that has never occured to me :D
If you add Finland to Sweden, the motif is pretty much set!
=( Once again, I'm so sorry if anyone feels I've defaced France and Sweden. Basically, I tried to smooth things out as much as could just to make the outlies easier to use.
If it helps, I was inspired by X-Com's very minimalist map contours...
@Tomic: Yeah that must be it, haha! So where did they stuff Corsica?
@dawnbringer+reo: i suspect they used the island to fill these 2 holes.. ehm, transparent areas in your contry.. vänern+vättern, right? :D
Awesome, thanks. This looks quite fun and the palettes are very interesting, hopefully I'll have a good idea for this!
Been a while since I've done one of these, max 17 colors is just a maximum, I don't need to use every color there, correct?
@Tomic: We don't get Gotland and Öland...France don't get Corsica ;)
hey, what happened to corsica? :)
nice challenge, i see faces :P
No distorting, these are the shapes. You can only flip the countries or rotate them by 90/180 degree angles
:D Loooove challenge!
How strict are you going to be about not "distorting" any pixels on the countries? For example, is it allowed to remove 3-4 pixels from a corner to smoothen it out?
Really nice challenge! :) ...wish I had time to participate.
I sorry :'(
I take full responsibilty for any geography which has been butchered D:
Also, I don't know how to use sweden's palette, so I think I'll try that.
"So, if you pick Noet/Sweden, use the first palette; if you pick Manupix/France, use the second palette."
I think that's backwards.
There are some absolutely incredible peices so far. It'sgoing to be a hard vote!
