Pixel Art Challenge: Time Machine


icon
Design an original time machine device and then show your machine in two different time periods - one on the left side of the canvas and one on the right side of the canvas.
 
So, for example, you could show your time machine on the left in 1900 and the one on the right in 2012.
 
Make sure you tell us which years your time machine is in.

Canvas Size - Use template below; each time period must be contained within one of the two sides.

Colours - Max 32.
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 really must try and make time to do something for this. It's too awesome a challenge to miss.

if it didn't work, then it wasn't a time machine.

@Club Beuker, It seems that way to me. Why or how would the actual machine change when transporting?

 Could we twist the theme to be a time machine in, say 2011 that never worked, and then in 3050 or something as one of the "many failed attempts at time travel", where the machine is all battered and tatty?

funny though that i recently got my box "back to the future : the game deluxe edition" XD

To get this straight, the time machine would be the same in both pics but the background/surroundings wouldn't?

what an interesting challenge ^^

 Could i maybe drop the border and use contrast of colors as a separation?


user

@Chibiwing - I would say that would be a good idea. The...bordivider should just be there to separate the two images, don't really think of it as an actual part of the image.


user
oka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/17/2011 00:50

 can i flip the board so each colored time block will be horizontal?


user
Chibiwing (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/17/2011 00:35

Sweet.  Thanks for getting back to me on that so fast!  ^_^

Does the border/divider have to be all one color still?


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/17/2011 00:28

I don't have a problem with changind the border/divider colour. Although, it will still count towards the overall colour count.


user
Chibiwing (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/17/2011 00:26

Nifty.  As far as using the template, does the color that currently makes up the border and dividing line count towards our total color count? And if so, does it have to be that or can it be changed?

neat idea!
