pmprog - looks cool.  the perspective is great.
Malor - Try and blend the two worlds creatively instead of just using a straight line to separate them. 
 
This challenge reminded me of some new Magic: The Gathering art.  (I know, how nerdy of me.)  Each of the cards has an ability called Split Second, and the art depicts alternate realities in a creative way.  Here are some examples:

I wish I were brave and talented enough to perfect this idea.. but I think I'd be going in way over my head. 
 
 
(Yes, it's inspired from the opening scene of the Wizard of Oz.  If I decide to do it, I'll probably make the bottom half Black and White, just like in the movie.)  If I remember correctly, the witch was on a bike.

There are also a few older cards where a monster has 2 different forms, and you flip the card upside down to change.  The art is split up in those too.

@Malor: Your other idea didn't suck, just needed tweaking. eg. like the rear-entrace to the mansion looked like a delapidated shed. Or even size reversals.

Anyway, good luck on your Valhala!

Hmmm, if (by fluke, or assassination of all the real pixel artists here) I win, I'm gonna do a Magic:TG border design challenge (not actual cards, but redesign the border/layout)...

Anyhoo, back to real life... here's a small update WIP. I would really like some suggestions on the shoes and trousers, cos something seems off to me...

Haha, that's a good idea.  But you're too late as they already redesigned the layout in the newest set.  See Imperial Mask

Oh, I've seen those, I'm still undecided if it actually looks any good tho... but that wouldn't be a reason to not have the challenge... Anyway, I don't think we really have to worry about that

File -> Save for web... In the window that opens, make sure the image format is a palette-based one (GIF or PNG-8) and the maximum allowed amount of colours is 256. Below the colour table there should be a number that shows you how many colours there are in the image (unless there are more than 256, but I doubt that's the case).

That's how I do it, at least. Haven't found any other way to do it.

Image > Mode > Indexed Color (it will be greyed out unless your image is currently RGB)

Be sure your palette is set to Exact.

Then you'll have a strict color table that you can micromanage. Hooray!

another way is to temporarily (don't hit save here) go to image mode and make 'indexed' then under the same menu click 'color table'. Pie's way (mine too) is far better ;)

May I just draw the world which I consider parallel to our, not dividing it into parts and not comparing to another? :)

BTW, is checking the box "submit to challenge" is enough to take part into a challenge?

Btw, the rule about the canvas is: Canvas Size: 320x240
Does that mean the canvas size HAS to be 320x240 or can the canvas be smaller?
 
Edit:
Should I use the outline? I personally think it adds a bit more depth to the whole

It's coming along nicely, but I think your tree should be a bit more modest and flash a little less bark.

The first thing that came to my mind was MMBN when I saw this challenge...

Delete it from your profile, and resubmit it, just without the challenge box ticked, because it's definately worth having in your gallery.

Unless one of the mods could just remove it from the contest without deleting it?

10-15 minute doodle idea sort of thing. Don't know if it really qualifies for the compo? It was influenced by the rules, anyways.
