Pixel Art Challenge: Penguin Awareness Day


January 20 was penguin awareness day. We weren't aware of the awareness day until after the awareness day. So, we're going to have a belated penguin-related challenge this week: Create an image that features a penguin using exactly three colours.

Optional Bonus Challenge: Avoid using black or white.

Canvas Size - Max 150 x 150.
Colours - Exactly 3.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

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

So if this Pengiun Awareness Day is refering to The Penguin or Penguin BatPenguin (AKA Bruce Wguin) will that mean that Painguin (AKA Robin) is BatPenguin's Sidekick and the butler is his Guinman?! Or if it's not then I have Penguinly excested use the word "Penguin"... I guess

3 colors is almost worse than just 2 because it makes you *think* you can do levels of depth, detail, and smoothness...and then you pull your hair out failing ;)

I would imagine only if The Penguin is A penguin. So, Penguin Penguin vs Penguin Batman in Penguinham of the Penguinverse.

Do the rules allow featuring The Penguin instead of a penguin?
