not sure if this helps, but this is all i could do in a pinch:

...done entirely with tracing, selections, masks and paint-bucket; sorry in advance if this is unhelpful, gimp was really starting to glitch out on me half way through...

Sorry I posted this in the art board, although i think it belongs here...

Here's one that has sort of snuck up on the American public: RealID.

Sorry for the funny political subject matter, it's just that in our modern technological age, it is important to keep an eye on mantaining important freedoms, lest we lose those freedoms, and bring about the rise of some despotic regime(ruled by androids) D: ??? And for anyone who is too young, or didn't like history class, I'd like to point out that the Nazis(those bad guys who started WW2) made use of special identification markers to help facilitate the atrocities they committed. 

I guess the difference is back then the star was a death sentence, where as now it is a "must have". Still, the new system will create a division between those who are privileged, and those who are not; and all at the cost of privacy, which is a constitutional right last time I checked.

here are some links to the holocaust(for a reminder):

I would like to point out that there are a number of critics out there who appose this new system of national identification.
Here are a few more links:
Burlington Free Press - DMV embraces Real ID, critics cite privacy concerns(2013)
ACLU: Real ID - turning driver’s licenses into national ID ...tracking, data
Constitutional Alliance - Real ID Exposed: It Is Worse than You Think
...this last one is a pretty extensive rebuttal to the new system, and points out many concerning things like expanded facial recognition, unprecedented & unconstitutional level of DHS authority, new Federally interlinked DMV databases, new identity theft risks, non encrypted machine readable metadata, international sharing of biometrics, FBI's new world’s largest biometric database... should be very concerned!

So that brings me to my mockup:
RGB:           ...and 16 Color:
also, heres a link to the imgur page:

...and sorry, it's not really pixel art yet; and this isn't really even the right format yet; I was thinking of making something more similar to what the actual ID card will look like. ...And I'm not yet sure about canvas size, although it's my opinion that, when done properly, pixel art looks good at both small and large scales, and so I think, in the end, size should probably be limited by readability of the smallest font.

Anyway, I just wanted to start this thread, rather than taking a deep dive all on my own, and having it flop. Feel free to post if this sort of thing sounds interesting to you. Important note: the mockup i made is square where as a Real ID card is rectangular. Also, my mockup is just a quick RGB collage, although i think with the right palette, it could really catch on the eye(as well as be easily reproducible).

So anyway, here is my challenge to anyone who will take it:
Create an ID card for one of the 50 states, including on it one of the new emblems signifying Real ID compliance, and put a picture of a cow on the card in place of the portrait.

IMPORTANT: Don't use any real info inside your finished work!

Also, for extra points you may try to incorporate the one of the grades of beef into your design:
Prime, Choice, Select, Standard, Commercial, Utility, Cutter, Canner

...thats it!  ...and have fun painting cows!

And don't let me forget, here are the official emblems:

and here are some official sample IDs(from the DHSgov website):

...and if you are curious, and want to read more about real-id, you can do so here on the official DHS page:

hey, just a small suggestion: it helps to link the file in an image, like this: you can zoom it in the browser!(click-to-zoom-in, shift+click-to-zoom-out)
Nice Work! ...clean lines! :P

...and are we not requiring new users to introduce themselves anymore?

My Big Apologies! I did not mean to imply you Chonky. although if you had seen the other thread you would understand.

...also, anyone have any thoughts on WebP?
supposedly it can be lossless. ...does that make it safe for pixelart?

you could try doing a tile for the hex corpse. it has really helped me figure stuff out. what software are you using?

...also, if you decide to work on Hex4, note it is technically "on pause"; therefore you should read through to the end of the thread before picking a tile.

...also don't show anyone your full tile. ...except Indigo of course.

Update(8/20): I polished up my tiles just a bit, not much though, and have added them to the progress file. I don't want to spend any more time on them, and i think this will have to be their final versions, whether or not i spot any problem going forward. ...i added a little black there along the righthand side of T2...  ...also fixed the top of T31...

Important to note: i don't have access to the full tiles(and shouldn't for now, since i may draw more tiles).
Anyway go #JoJo2020!

...and, as I understand it, the following 12 8 7 tiles are currently available:

T2(Done! by hANshOTtH3RD)
T7(Done! by hANshOTtH3RD)
T31(Done! by hANshOTtH3RD)
T40(Done! by hANshOTtH3RD)
T88(¿¿WIP carson333??)

at this point i think my current tiles are done, although I may still decide to do more tiles. I guess it all depends on if i have time, and if this challenge resumes or not... anyone else bugged that you can't zoom the progress image in the browser(nor the hex_3 final image for that matter)? more thing(very sorry), why are the progress file's layers set to "background-combine-combine-replace"?
the template is "background-combine-combine-combine"... and there is no transparency allowed afaik...
I've actually decided to try and fix this: I un-optimised and re-optimised the main progress gif. I had some problems with the last frame adding transparency, and ended up also having to manually edit the layer attribute to get it to work. It appears to be unchanged; all i did was change layer 4 from replace to combine then un-optimised and re-optimised; here it is if anyone want's to double-check me:

I also took the liberty to fix that stray pixel on the right hand border of T47. There were some other issue, which I've already pm'd Indigo about, that i did not fix now; mostly the issue with the border between T56 & T46, and the lack of animation to T23, also some questions about the progress of various tiles that were claimed but never completed... idk i almost want to fix the T56 border issue myself(though for now it remains), but I think T23 basically requires a do-over -- unless Grossly Incandescent can come and finish it.

...don't forget to #WearAMask ...also #DavidBelkMD is a wise man!

we are likeminded Rydin! remind me to spend some time on this... also, to work on my pixelviewer browser app.

...I've gotten too busy with different accounts... also reading up on making my own SMF forum(for an unrelated project).
