Nero burning Rome! WOOHOO!
This was done in only a few hours, so the sloppiness is all around. I am pretty happy with it though.
I did take some liberties with the three colors allowed, most notably the black, which is now somewhat bluish-black, to make the contrast less harsh.
Hope you like it: )

Very nice! I like it! 

There is only one small historical error:

the colosseum you made is the colosseum you can see today in Rome,

but it was 'complete' at that time: something like this.

Great pixelart!

But the title makes me sad...

Dr. Morph (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/4/2007 03:56
LOL Very nice. Great style.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 3/17/2007 17:05
looks great :)
maybe you could add some lightning (yellow, lol) on his face, like, backlight or something? :)

i think it won't win. I think it's the best piece ive seen for the challenge so far, but in all previous challenges the most votes went to the people who are already well known, and the best pixels (imo) were so far not in the top 3... anyway, if there won't be any better work than this, you will have a vote from me...

pferguso (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/16/2007 07:30
I dig it.  You should win this challenge.

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 3/15/2007 18:17
wow I think this wins.

Jellysauce (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/15/2007 12:08
this is going to be a tough competition.

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/15/2007 07:15
Nero, that crazy son of a ****. The figure is definitely awesome. I love the shading on him!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/15/2007 04:50
The figure is great. I don't know that the coliseum looked like that back then...but.
I suspect the type may not be pixelart : /

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/15/2007 04:50
I like the lions. I think the black is ok.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/15/2007 01:45
lol coal chamber
Great work, many great details!

BruceJuice (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/15/2007 01:22
Rock on...I like how you played with the fire's lightsource. It's nice.

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/14/2007 23:59
