I heard about the comp and the due date for the first time today, so I whipped this entry up. (I say whipped up but it took me like 9 hours - I'm not a pixel artist!)

Inspired by good ol' gameboy title screens, of course!

Also the observant among you will now note that this invalidates my long-lived dA signature. Who knows, is cross-stitch to follow?

I'll probably tweak it a bit before entering, please leave constructive criticism below :D

Yes! I just had to do that for fun once I'd finished the image, just to see how it'd look! It's kinda cool how when shrunk down the dithering I did became grey tones.

Part of me wishes I'd done this half the resolution so it'd be true to the original gameboy's resolution, but I don't think that would've worked for a t-shirt design so well. I think this way I've got a good balance of the size of the design and the size of the 'pixels' that will appear in print.
