My entry for this weeks challenge - Beat-o-Mons.

Moondog (1916-1999)

-Blinded at the age of 16, Moondog has honed his hearing ability to the fine point that he can actually commune with sound-waves & alter their vibrational frequency at will. Sneak attacks are null, and any move by the opposing player that causes sound will be countered immediately via temporal distortions in time & space.-

C-64 palette (minus white)

I'd highly recommend the compilation album 'The German Years 1977-1999' released in 2005 for an introduction to his musical genius. I can only lament that it took me so long to discover his body of work.

I love MoonDog. New Amsterdam is probably my favorite of his. Great art too.

It's such a memorable song!

No worries. And props for the Moondog of course!

@CELS Thank you kindly, it's much appreciated!

@b236, I was struggling to choose a single musician/artist for a while (so many that have had an impact on me over the years) Was watching a TV show with Josh Brolin in it (Outer Range) and at the end of one of the later episodes they used one of Moondog's songs in the credits... decision made!

@gawrone Thanks for that, I discovered that there was another black in there, so redid all that on a seperate layer to get rid of it for good. Got rid of the erroneous white that I missed & chose to remove the transparency to get it down to 15 colours, just to be on the safe side. Much appreciated!

Really well done!

omg, moondog!

Hello. You have 18 colours in your piece. The requirement for the challenge is max 16. I see one accidental white pixel, and four 100% transparent pixels, which we can ignore (it will be 16 + transparency then). So I'm accepting your piece, but please fix it as soon as possible.
