The interesting challenge was that I had to consider the colour clash (in order to save memory usage we are limited to 4 colours per cell of 32 pixels in Multicolor bitmap mode, which means when we add a fifh colour an other one is overwritten). It quickly becomes a very meticulous work… well … after all, this is pixel art.
