That's rocking pretty good Mrmo.

Here was a rough idea I had. Maybe I'll make something of it later. It's such a pain.

Would it be alright to make the whole thing out of 2x2 pixels? Technically they're all tall pixels but I just wanted to make sure

No. Its just a scaled image with 1x pixels in that case, so it doesnt fit the challenge.

Hello. My art was rejected from weekly challenge.
REASON: Any art you post should be PIXEL ART! Pixel art implies that each pixel is placed by hand (no filters, paintbrushes, gradient fills, etc).
But i had not used any filters paintbrushes or gradients. That's my own handmade dithering. Please, submit my work to challenge.
Or maybe this is because of my small image, that I resized in the editor? But I added a detailed version (and this is original).

This image has over 700 colours, probably caused by you resizing without nearest neighbour (or the equivalent) turned on.

I got it. I thought it's preview, and it doesn't matter.
But in detailed version only 7 colors. Is detailed version OK?

Yes, as long as it uses tallpixels. Instead of using a downscald image as the preview you could just cut a segment fom the original picture you know.

Guys after re-reading the rules, will this count:

Because it depicts slendys face and doesnt show that he is: " Abnormally tall."

You didn't upload a detail file then (just the preview). And yes, you need to crop for the preview rather than scaling up/down.
