CHALLENGE: IRL RPS

This challenge is from winner Mis-BUG. He wants you to show a literal interpretation of a rock-paper-scissors battle. Anything is fine, as long as it clearly depicts a physical battle between two of the objects (as oppose to an abstraction of a battle using hand gestures). So, for example; your image could show a giant rock falling on a man holding a pair of scissors.

The objects don't need to react like they do normally, so your entry might show a piece of paper somehow destroying a pair of scissors. Also, you may show the same object twice (ie. a rock vs. a rock).

Canvas Size - Max 200 x 250. Either horizontal or vertical.
Colours - Max 16.
Transparency - No.
Animation - Optional.

This is so odd considering I am developing an iOS game based on "Rock-Paper-Scissors."

This is what I call the ultra wip!



It may undergo some significant changes.

Here's my idea, it's basically because of a mistake I thought of it, I read RTS instead of RPS.

New to pixel art and pixel joint, so hopefully have the right idea about this. Still lots of work to do but i'm keen to enter.

Is this okay or is it not IRL enough (more fictional?)

I believe the IRL part only meant actual rock, paper or scissors fighting.

^It's even less limited than that:

So, for example; your image could show a giant rock falling on a man holding a pair of scissors.


So yeah, I'll try to join this one, sounds fun.

Ok, so we can't depict something that remind us this game in a symbolic way (like a metaphor).

My WIP:


Excalibur! RPS style! :P

I know, I sort of ruined a good idea with my amateur pixel skills.

UPDATE:

Can anyone see something that I can improve a lot in? IU sort of am stuck here.

I assume it's paper vs. rock...but I'm not quite sure what's going on. I'm guessing that they're dropping paper bombs on a bunch of rocks?? Maybe make one of the rocks larger/stand out somehow, so the concept is a bit clearer. Right now it looks like the planes are flying over some sort of strange landscape, rather than specifically rocks.

Also, I would suggest not flipping or copy/pasting the sprites.

@Ravagence; you should shade the rock, paper and the mountains. Also I would recommend against using black outlines. You don't need them in this piece.

Both look great.
Kevin, I'd suggest weakening the scissors a little more, and leaving the paper at full health, since it resists rock and all. :P
And I liked the headband ):

I too liked the headband. D:
Might want to add some scratches to the rock, or maybe dull or warped parts to the scissors implying 'war wounds.' Also, I'd have a cowardly rock watching his friend duke it out alone peaking over one of the tree roots in the background.
I look forward to seeing this finished!
