CHALLENGE: Trojan Palette

"The Trojan Horse is a story from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the independent city of Troy and win the war. In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside including Odysseus."

- Wikipedia

A wooden horse shouldn't be too hard to pixel, right? However, what if you only got 4 colours?

Canvas Size - Max. 250x250
Colours - Exactly 4 (given palette)
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.


  • Participants have until this upcoming Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) to submit their entry (strict). Don't forget to check the 'Submit to weekly challenge' checkbox.
  • Only new pixels allowed.

  • Posting WIPs in this thread or in new threads in the WIP section is highly encouraged, but ONLY SUBMIT YOUR FINAL ART.


  • Every Sunday at midnight (12AM Pacific) the previous week's entries are judged.

  • Top three finishers will receive an award displayed in your PJ gallery profile for all to see and envy.
  • Top finisher gets to call the following week's challenge...sweet.

Hello. May I ask how I can post a picture that is saved from my computer? Or, do I have to type in a URL to do that? Thanks.

The forum doesn't actually have an associated image host to my knowledge so you'll have to find one yourself. There is a the PixelJoint Gallery obviously but that's generally for presenting and showing off art rather than just uploading things.

PostImage is what it seems like a a lot of people use including myself, though there are others. It doesn't resize or compress anything, so it shouldn't mangle pixel art the way many other image upload services do. Just upload the file there with the "do not resize this image" option selected.

Afterward right click the image you've uploaded and copy the associated URL. From there you can use the format [IMG]Image URL Here[/IMG] to add it to your post by pasting the URL you copied over placeholder.

Sorry if this is over explaining, it's hard to tell where people's relative experience is with these kinds of things.

Hi, Esven.

No problem. You explained everything clearly.

I'll keep this in mind for my next weekly challenge.

I've already submitted my Trojan Horse.
