This week, you have to face a colour that stands for so many things. Love, blood, danger and "The Moscow–Washington" hotline.

Just some simple shades of red would be too easy for all you pixel pushers out there though. That's why you have to deal with not very pleasing greys, blues and greens.

There are no restrictions. However, make sure you incorporate that pesky red! My polite looking ork friend serves as an example.

Canvas Size - Max. 300x300

Colours - Exactly 4, the colors in the sample image #141725 #4e6058 #858d83 #f00a0a

It's once again time for our ever popular yearly April Fools Gallery challenge!

For those who do not know the rules yet, the idea is to study the PJ gallery of another pixel artist. Look at the techniques they use, the colours they pick, the subject matters they gravitate towards, etc... Then once you feel like you have a grasp of that person's style, create an image that will fool us into thinking that it's theirs. 

Don't forget to mention the name of your chosen pixel artist in your description!

Previous April Fools Gallery challenges can be found here: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]]  

"Fooled ya!" This was written by the one and only Pyrometal for last year's April Fools challenge

"The Trojan Horse is a story from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the independent city of Troy and win the war. In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside including Odysseus."

- Wikipedia

A wooden horse shouldn't be too hard to pixel, right? However, what if you only got 4 colours?

We are all to familiar with the classic version of a death race. Badass looking muscle cars right out of Mad Max 2 which try get to the to the finish line first not without doing their best to kill their opponents.

However, how would such a race look in ancient times. You can go as far back in history as you want, just make sure that your vehicle doesn't have an ordinary petrol engine. A war chariot with a ballista or even a steam-powered weapon on 4 or even 2 wheels, everything goes.

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!

This week, we are doing a follow up to this classical weekly challenge. So, we want you to draw an RPG party that consists of exactly 4 sprites, depicting 4 different classes. These classes should be chosen between these, albeit with whatever twists you might dream of:

  • The ranger
  • The bard
  • The paladin
  • The barbarian
  • The necromancer
  • The pet/creature

You must separate sprites from eachother in your canvas using transparency, yet slight overlays for the sake of composition is permitted. Please clearly mention in your description which characters are in your party. And remember: you can make a ww2 team or 50s gangsters as well as classical high fantasy themed party.

Canvas Size - Max 200 x 200.
Colours - Max 32. Including transparency.
Transparency - Required.
Animation - No.
