Hey Earthlings, April 22 is Earth Day. This one's a little more complex than usual, so make sure you're clear on the rules.

Pick one word from each of the categories shown below (environment, time, weather) and create a scene that depicts those three words (e.g. a forest scene at night, while it's raining).

To determine the exact amount of colours you can use, add up the numbers in the brackets. For example, if you pick forest/nighttime/raining, then you'd use exactly (2+2+1) 5 colours.


  • Mountains (1)
  • Forest (2)
  • Beach (3)


  • Daytime (1)
  • Nighttime (2)
  • Dawn or dusk (3)


  • Clear (0)
  • Raining (1)
  • Snowing (2)

Canvas Size - Max 220 x 220.
Colours - Min 2; Max 8. See above for details.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
