Rick Nelson seems to like garden parties and so do I. Sitting down with some friends, eating good food and drinking a few beers is an evening well spend.

This week I want you to capture the spirit of a garden party, but there's a twist! You are only allowed to use top-down view and are restricted to a canvas size of 200x200!

Canvas Size - Exactly. 200x200
Colours - Max 16.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.



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

Humans are going beyond the solar system to find a new home. Draw a spaceship sprite designed to carry the human race for decades - or even centuries. Of course, imagination is what we're looking for rather than scientific accuracy. The perspective for the sprite is up to you; side, topdown, isometric... anything goes.

Canvas Size - Max 150x150.
Colors - Max 20.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - Optional.

In a world as huge as Hyrule or Red Dead's rendition of the wild west we would easily get lost without a proper map.

This week I want you to create a game map. It doesn't have to be a map of an existing world. You can be as creative as you want.

Canvas Size - Max. 350x350
Colours - Max 16.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

Fellow PJers, our latest collab PrehISOria has progressed in a record breaking speed and is already 54/98 complete in one and a half months - not to mention it already looks great!

If you haven't (or have) already, don't hesitate to grab a tile now, cause it might be too late before you know it.

Happy ISOing!
