For this week's challenge I reimagined Russell Drysdale's 1948 painting "The Cricketers".

Compatible with Game Boy DMG graphics restrictions

Size: 160 x 144 pixels

Tiles: 209

Palette: Nintendo Game Boy BGB (4 colours + transparency)

Link: The cricketers - Wikipedia

See it displayed on DMG here: twitter.com/sjd_sjd_/status/1388659521338232834

Or if you want to look at it on your own Game Boy download a 32kB ROM of it from here:PJ WeeklyChallengeEntry26Apr2021 by sjd_sjd (itch.io)

(I used James Brennan's 2017 Bald Archy prize winning portrait of Australian cricketer Dave Warner, "Pocket Rocket", as my reference for the preview picture...)

Thanks. I'd need to upgrade my laptop first... It's pretty dodgy at displaying colours accurately.

You work with 4 colors so well. I couldn't imagine how impressive you'd be without the limitation.
