Pixel Art Challenge: Postcards From Pixel City


icon

Create an image depicting a real country on Earth, that you haven't been to before. This could be an ideal travel spot, a place you're interested in or maybe just a completely random location.

It can be in the form of a postcard, but it doesn't have to be. It can just be a regular image depicting a real location from that country.

Obviously we're not going to check your passports, so we can only hope for your co-operation and honesty :o

Also, don't forget to mention your chosen country somewhere in your submission.

Canvas size - Exactly 200 (width) x 150 (height).
Colours - Max 25.
Transparency - No.
Animation - No.



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

 I call dibs on Egypt! Never been there, but I'll definitely go visit sometimes :)

I'm going to draw it as I imagine it. Weird and strange! :)

I made a promis to go to South Africa with somebody once, a promis now broken. Maybe I can find time for this challenge.

 Hmm... I live in Canada. I was once to Aruba when I was six(?) but I remember nothing. I've been to the US once for a judo competition. So I guess those two are out if I decide to do this.

Can it be on the way to the place? With the place on the background? or no?

I hope they allow that rotation; there are plenty of postcards that are taller than they are wide.

Can the postcard be 200 height and 150 width instead of the other way round?

I have only been in the US, Israel and Palestine.

I might enter this.. I've always wanted to go to the lands of the hollow Earth myself

Since I've only been to Canada and the US, this shouldn't be hard!

Does it have to be what it actually looks like (references etc.) or what we imagine it to look like?

 France and EUA

For once I'm glad I haven't been out of the US.  Now where should I... Ohmygosh, I just had the best idea! OoO

US, UK, Canada, South Korea, and, if Hong Kong counts, China are all out for me. =P
