There must be at least one white cell between any consecutive shaded groups. Rows and columns without outside clues can have any pattern of shaded and unshaded cells. Also, all the shaded cells must be able to be split into the seven given pentomino shapes. Pentominoes may be flipped and/or rotated.

Terrific puzzle … slow time but logical solve…

• Chandrachud says:

BTW all shaded cells must be connected is a rule in these puzzles? I just assumed it is …

• drsudoku says:

That’s not a specific requirement in Nonograms so also not a rule required here. Having to put 7 L’s in a small space means many such pentominonograms are going to all be connected just from cell counts.

• R says:

Grandmaster, first tried to do the nonogram rules, then applied the L´s for a clean solve
