Sorry, i already posted this in the art-board, although i think it is more appropriate here...

Hey all, TIGBaby here, I'm wondering if this is the right place to share a little idea of mine for "pixel art activism"?:

The basic idea is to satirize the new Real ID divers licenses using a cow-chute/slaughterhouse metaphor, and with the intention to bring up 1984 connotations and the like...

I haven't really had time to work on it much yet(just my profile pic), although I have started a thread over on pixelationorg.
The basic format will be as follows:
1. choose 1 of 50 states + territories
2. cow theme: pic + cheesy text(NO PERSONAL INFO!)
    also, please include in some way one of the 8 grade of beef:
    Prime, Choice, Select, Standard, Commercial, Utility, Cutter, Canner
3. rectangular canvas with rounded corners(not sure exactly what size yet...)
4. i'm not sure the palette...
5. make sure to include one of the official star-emblems
6. try to make it look like an ID card ...and have fun drawing cows!

here is my starting sample mockup i made:
RGB:           ...and 16 Color:
it should probably be rectangular though, not square...

...and here is a link to the imgur post including a few official samples by DHS.
...also, here's a link to the official DHS RealID page.
...and a link to some good criticism of Real ID(sorry for the politics).
...and here's something incase you don't know about the holocaust.  

sorry if this is not exactly game related, although i've been trying to find more places to practice my pixel art, and to draw the kind of art i want to make. I think it could be a fun project for those looking to improve their pixel art, and I hope it only enhances the fun, rather than making things a drag.  Wink
