This week marks 15 years since the Japanese release of the Virtual Boy, Nintendo's first foray into stereoscopic 3D handhelds. Therefore, we want to see what you can create using the Virtual Boy restrictions shown below; can you make a red-tinted masterpiece mock-up for this ill-fated system?

Remember: As it is a big canvas, you may want to consider breaking the image up into tiles.

Also, here's a nice example by Scruffs of a VB mock-up, if you need some inspiration.

Canvas Size - Exactly 384 (width) x 224 (height).
Colours - Exactly 4. Use only the colours from this palette:

plese make sure you are using the exact colours shown above.

Transparency -No.
Animation - Optional.



The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
