After line and careful color logic leaves only black and five red pixels (all within the top seven rows),

(Note: the red 1s in r3-7 cannot be in any columns before c32)

Look at the first two rows: since they cross only 1s, the 8 in r1 cannot go all the way left without causing a conflict in c31. (r1 has the 8 in c14-21, then r2 has a 2in c22-23, then r1 has the 5 in c24-28, then r2 has another 2 in c29-30, but then c31 cannot have its 1 in either r1 or r2 and so there's a conflict) Thus r1c14 must be white.
LL/CL finishes it.

I got it without guessing or using the hint but it wasn't easy. I love your wild color shading. It's very unusual and effective. I like your puzzle style.

As I've noted before, I can't generally take full credit for "my art style" as I often use pictures I've found online. Mostly they are changed (at least in size) when I'm adapting them for a puzzle. This one is an almost exact usage from a small picture, but the colors were changed to fit our palette and a small crop was made to make a 5x size. Also tweaks were then made for solvability.

Oh, I just noticed you said "puzzle style". While I can't claim to have arted the art, I do claim that I puzzled the puzzle. So, thanks!
