From a look online, many film posters (especially the ones posted outside the cinema) are landscape orientation.  Is it ok to rotate one of the templates into landscape mode for this?

I'm gonna say no. I think a landscape poster is more a billboard.

One question!!!

"Pink lines" are included in the size of each canvas??

Yeah the lines don't have to stay. Not sure why I even had a transparent box.

I think I might have started a little too late in the week to get this idea finished, but I think it might not be too bad eventually (don't go crazy, it's just a start I made today and I'm no pro). There's going to be a sword as well, just haven't got that far yet... using a reference image and 22 colours so far. I know that's bad, but oh well! It's got a long way to go still.

Haha how about that : P

Updated, more progress, but I'm so slow

-> ->

Updated, changed the sword but still not so happy with it, but I don't really know what else to do with it for now. Also general polishing and aa etc, most of it I'm ok with, but the sword has always bugged me... Also somehow mysteriously lost several colours and now down to 20 colours? Oh well, not complaining! : P Now to continue fussing with the skin XD

I just wonder what this serrated thing at the lower half of the picture should display. A sword?

If you mean my WIP;

"There's going to be a sword as well, just haven't got that far yet..." In my initial post ;) It's one of the areas that's not had as much work done as the others yet.

Ah, ok, missed it. But it looks like cloth because of the color and dithering. Metal is a very plain and reflecting surface.

Sorry to post here but wasn't sure where to post my question. I submitted my entry for this challenge 3 days ago and it says it is still awaiting approval. Has it been overlooked? Again I am sorry if this is the wrong place to make this post.

Thanks @AG182, it's the toughest thing I've tried pixel wise I think. Pretty surprised with the results so far, although I think I could fuss over this for eternity and still not stop XD
