Weekly Challenge.

This adventure is about the revolt of 42 kidnapped West Africans (Sierra Leone) who where sold into slavery and bought by the Spanish.The leader of the rebellion - Sengbe  Pieh and the other hostages overtook the ship and killed the captain. The ship was then recaptured and they were put on trial. In March 1841, they won their freedom to go home.

I know there needs to be some fiddling around and tweaking with this pic, but I'm submitting this now as is. (out of time again, sorry...)

yey, educational pixel-art*.. some more of this and the challenge could feel like the 'Ides of March' one; kudos for the first piece in this weeks challenge that obviously took more than 3 minutes!

nice colors; i also quite like the face expression of the guy on the left; the two slaves on the right look a bit like teenage mutant hero turtles though
