IMO this is my kind of challenge - few restrictions but still restrictive enough to be called a 'challenge'.
I just started something really good and JPG'd it...  kinda too frustrated to attempt again right now, but might try again later.

The possibilities are endless so long as you stay within the simple guidelines

- it has to be within the shape template (nothing outside of the circle)
- it must be a scene of some sort.  A snowglobe can be a scene, sphere perspective is a scene.  That all works.  It's really subjective.

Make it look like it's entering the atmosphere, with heat and friction and such, and it could be a scene.
I can do a lot of things, I just never bother to do most of them.

It's a good idea but it would be very difficult to do and not go out of the template, but i'll try it anyway.
Edit: Here's an update anyways

I am back from my vacation :D
And immediately I was asked to look at this. And Stratto, I really like your entry, but I am afraid that when approving it there might be more people doing the same kind of stuff but not with that amount of quality.

So, there is two choises for you: Finishing it as you had in mind, without submitting it to the challenge
Changing it in that way that I can cal it a scene. Maybe add some clouds on top of it, or shrink the moon (you could cut off a part. Or drag the moon upwards to the right, so that the full moon is not in the canvas, and there is room for other stuff to be visible)

Here's a WIP. When thinking of a scene this seemed like a good idea. Let's see if I can make it better yet. Obviously there's still a bit of scenery missing.

Three scene concepts I'm considering.  All in very rough sketch stages, obviously, while I consider which ones to attempt and to see if it leads me to thinking of any other new ideas.  I'm strongly considering making an animation of these for the fun of animating frames distorted in a fisheye style.  Will probably make the skateboarder a more stylized monster when I have time to do more beyond sketching while on break at the office.

A Discworld! I wish you luck with it. I'd place the turtle lower so you can fit there elephants and a disc. Good luck again.

I sketched a skateboard scene too, but as I can see it's a quite different pose... dunno if I should change subject

I'd go for it.  That's what a challenge is all about.  Even if it's the same subject, no two pixel art peices will be the same.  I say: "More skateboards"

Damn, I think I might have to quit, again. Can only be on the computer about one hour a day and its not enough to finish my entry, since I do other stuff on the comp too, not just pixelling. I guess I ll finish it and submit it after the challenge then.

Not that anyone cares :P

Is it supposed to be one of those myths about the world being held by elephants turtles and a strong man or something?
It's coming out pretty great
