Just to clarify: transparency may only be used outside the template, where it is mandatory? Or may also be used inside the template, but is only required outside template?

EDIT: 5 minutes of doodling, early WIP.



EDIT: More minutes of doodling. I have no idea what I'm doing here.

Congrats CELS, you're officially the topic starter now, this challenge is all in your hands now :P

I moved your post over and since your post has a timestamp earlier than this thread, you ended up on top.

About time I start calling the shots on this website.

Does that mean I get to decide the answer to the question in the OP?

I'm not breaking any rules by using different colors, am I? Is this supposed to be strictly a chiaroscuro work?

Anyways, rough idea. I feel like I need to work on the over all flow, and it still needs a lot of refining. A lot.

One day passed, and there's amazing entries already. Especially the first one that was submitted.
Anyhow, when I saw the template, I immediately though "UFO with a gem on top".
This is what I have so far:

The blue is actually a background layer which will be deleted when the piece is done. I tampered with shade blending in a style of that Robot wants to play piece (which inspired me since the robot is made of metal, and so is the UFO thing I'm making) [s]and plan on adding dithering once I'm done with that[/s]. But I need to do something about the gems... I want to make them reflective and somehow add a glow feel to them. Any ideas on how can I do that?
EDIT: Figured that I can't add dithering to this kind of shading. Anyways, progress:
