Nice perspective

Mattisborgen! I love that movie...
Very good pixels but it could use some AA and dithering. :)

This is awesome! You must learn aa, cause your drawing and perspective is amazing. Those clouds are very rough and would look awesome with antialiasing, as well as some other stuff. :) fav.

I think for 16 colors, you really stretched it to the limits!  Nice work!

I'm fairly new around here but this has to be the toughest challenge competition ever!

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/11/2007 15:23
Thanx all :)

@inkspot: Glad to get some CnC, altough I think that is a matter of taste, I like the way the clouds are now, and the stormy night is a bit wierd so I think wierd clouds is just fine in this piece. But thanx for your opinion, much appreciated.

You have a wonderful pallette and the overall piece is just great. Good luck to you!

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/11/2007 11:42
Sky is very weird, you should practice clouds more. Clouds are puffy and foggy, not sharp. And I remember the story, I have seen its series on TV when I was younger.

Jellysauce: You are right! I need to fix that. Am I allowed do edit my submission?

greate stone texture

Jellysauce (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/11/2007 10:12
i think the only real thing i dislike about this is i personally don't like the lightning.(specifically the lightning near the top of the picture) i just don't like how big it is. but thats not really a pixel problem but more of a stylistic problem.

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 3/11/2007 09:56
awesome work.  i will be disappointed if this fails to place

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/11/2007 09:45
