The final prompt in this series (.... which I may or may not have made up simply to make this section stretch to an even twelve posts....) allowed me to do something I rather enjoyed the one time I did it, back in design school - use Adobe illustrator's grid painting system to create 8-bit style pixel art! Working from a pencil sketch (as always, a good idea), I assembled this snazzy little tableau of Artie and Gene having an old-school, arcade game contest of wills; from inside the arcade game cabinet! Although I thought I could work with a grid template with a fairly limited number of squares, it turned out that rendering the dynamic duo with sufficient detail that they didn't look like the game paddles from 'Pong'.... required a good 100+ squares per grid line. At least. Ah, well, I can't complain about the result - shoot for them high scores, Lads!
