CHALLENGE: Blood-Fire-Rage-Hate

Challenge winner dakael challenges you to pixel these words as played in a major part in human history. Pick up at least any two of these abstracts and illustrate them. Be creative! This time imagination is the key.

Canvas size:
 - Minimum resolution: 25,6 kpx (for example: 160x160, 256x100)
 - Maximum resolution: 64 kpx (for example: 640x100, 320x200)
Maximum number of colors: 32
Animation: allowed
Transparency: not allowed

Have fun!

PS. What is kpx? It's a prefix 'kilo', so kpx means kilopixel, and it stands for 1000 pixels. "

*PJ Staff note, dakael is a nerd XD

"these words as played in a major part in human history"

Reword this, please.

sounds like an interestign challenge, not so sure what you mean by illustrating the words in human history. I interpreted that as, pick an interesting point of human history that portrays at least two of these words well.

either that or literally put two of these words in a historical scene.
 
might have to break my weekly challenge virginity for this one..

Sorry guys, dakael wrote the challenge and I failed to clear it up.
Until he expresses himself this is how I understood it from him:
You take one of the four words and then illustrate some historic reference from that.
For example:
Fire = Joan of Arc burning
Fire = Burning of Rome
Hate=The Holocaust
Blood = Anything with/about/relating to Bush
Rage= 'dunno' : /

I think this is one of the best challenge ideas yet.   Though it's unlikely that I'll enter, I'm excited to vote.

Just hope to clear this up before too many people start   So, there has to be combinations of rage+hate, fire+blood+rage, etc., and not singles?
Looking forward to seeing some interesting entries!

Oh my god! oh my god, oh my god! :)

I see I didn't say this clearly enough, so let's clarify this once and for all :

- resolution rule:

For example - we want to draw an image  100x100 pixels, so we do some little math 100x100 = 10 000. So this is 10kpx. Damn, to small!
Second example: we want to draw 100x800 (we are a weirdo!), so we again do some math : 100x800 = 80 000. So it's 80kpx. Damn, again it's too huge!

I hope that's now clarified enough?

- theme rule:

We have four words - blood, fire, rage, hate.

Ok! We take two of them and do some illustration. But it doesn't have to be related with human history! I had to said this not so clear enough (stupid dakael, stupid!). I give you an example:

For example we take "rage" and "blood" - we can draw a berserk, war scene or similar. Or take "fire" and "hate" - you can create a scene of arson, underwater creature which hates fire (but we have to see "hate" on his face and "fire" on the image). Or take all words and create a scene of dragon/demon slaying in depths of hell. Anything that you wish is good, but if it's not so obvious then please add an explanation.

Also remember to not bend the rules too much - smiling girl doesn't stick to the rules at all! Remember - imagination is the key!

I hope that all of you understand everything now, yup?

WIP


Warmaster charging his troops to battle.
Warcraft 3 inspired.

E: OOH! Screw the troops, ONE MAN versus hordes of orcs and undead, that attack from the mountains, much more dramatic. But the guy has the gods on his side, see the meteors and (to come) lightnings. ^^

Or does it have to be from a tale or something? Because games sorta are.

Once again... scene doesn't have to have any connection with human history. Anything fantasy/sci-fi/myths related is OK.

Wait what? So why isn't it simply changed to 'illustrate 2 of these words as a scene ... about history ... or not ... leikwatevr'

You make me look silly!

I'm sorry. I'm just slow.

I get the math part. I just don't get what any of that has to do with anything. Are we supposed to use 10,000 colors if we use a 100x100 canvas?

Your image needs to have between 25,600 and 64,000 pixels in it.
 
An example..
MIN: 160x160 MAX: 200x360

Hi ! Its my first time in the forum but I have a question is 32 color limit like that => background colors + sprite colors = 32 ...
And how many words can we make in a challenge ?

EDIT: I'm not so professional but atleast I tried to do something quickly, just made it in 2 hours;
Sea is supposed to be "bloodly sea", I tried to give it a strange looking by simple paint tools.
If its acceptable to have two words : they're Blood and Hate. If its one its Hate.

updated, at 31 colors, dunno. I'll probably go over it again tomorrow before submitting. while maybe not a major part in human history, the st. valentine's day massacre is a quite interesting part of it.

[edit] wow the one i enter has a low turnout o_o im hoping for some last minute entries, i liked this idea :(

... Vlad Tepes The Impaler ! This pixel art shows his memories and emotion. Its part of human history. Mixed with a little bit fantasy/mith.
