CHALLENGE: Special Snowflake

I'm aware that some of you were ambivalent about previous challenge, having both joy (of it being challenging) and pain (for lack of time for it), so this week we are going for something completely different - one of those low entry treshold (easy to make, hard to master) challlenges, which you can do in 10 minutes, but to compete with others you will have to put much more creativity into it.

The challenge is to draw a snowflake using only #ffffff white and transparency on 64x64 canvas.

I've provided a tempelate to make it easier, but you don't have to use it, as long as your snowflake will have (quasi) hexagonal design (the tempelate is wider so we can have clean, pixel art, 1:2 lines).

Canvas Size - exactly 64x64.
Colours - exactly 2 (#ffffff + transparency).
Transparency - required.
Animation - no.


  • 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.
  • Open to all members.
  • 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.
  • Every week a new voting poll will be posted for previous week's entries.
  • Winner announced the following week.


  • Top three finishers will receive an award displayed in your PJ gallery profile for all to see and envy.
  • Top finisher gets to suggest a future week's challenge. If you're a winner and you wish to submit your idea, send a message to Gecimen.
  • 'Participation' ribbons will be given for all who enter.
  • No matter what happens you get challenged :)
