 Holy... what. That is really, really nicely done. Not sure how you made that palette beautiful, but you did.

countach (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 1/5/2008 09:43
I love the orange color in the dress

Skull Master (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/30/2007 15:55
Looks fantastic! exept... the woman sticks out a bit.

Gratheo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/16/2007 16:00
Congrats on the win.   

Haze01 (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/10/2007 17:29
Fantastic work!  Congrats on the win :D

BlauerAuss (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/7/2007 12:47
This is just amazing, especially for a limited palette! The contrast between the woman and the rest of the scene looks really nice.

Blick (Level 7 Captain) @ 12/6/2007 21:12
Damn you textures are so much more believable than mine will ever be.

Pixelfish (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/4/2007 22:32
I'm getting hot right now.

PresidentLeever (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/3/2007 16:57
It's a winner. Im not great at anatomy but the girls lower body seems a bit short and her right arm is really skinny.

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 12/3/2007 11:06
i like everything except the the female char.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 12/3/2007 00:39
its awesome!

sanzoku (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/2/2007 20:12
omg win.

Beautiful detail.

dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/2/2007 11:29
Awesome. I must say it's very likely that it would be the winner of this challenge!

Nice one Morganne!!! I really like the fact that you used all of the colours. The only thing I would say is that the monsters tail seems "too" in focus and doesn't look as far away compared to the trees.

The highlights on the monsters face is a lovely touch :)))

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 12/1/2007 12:47
you win.

I would not have been able to notice you restricted yourself to this palette if it wasn't mentioned.

Morganne (Level 5 Elder Thing (The Mountains of Madness)) @ 12/1/2007 10:58
Ooh, you're right! Ill fix that.

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 12/1/2007 10:40
Good use of the palette. Nice water ripples, although the log's reflection doesn't match up with the rest of the ripples.

Chinli (Level 1 Seaman) @ 12/1/2007 07:36
wow very awesome. love it good job

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/1/2007 06:42

Great use of colors in this, it all looks great. I like the way the woman's dress just pops out.

Absolutely stunning.

klav (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 12/1/2007 04:51
the image makes no sense at all, which is fantastic.  the women's dress is eyepopping.  nice work.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 12/1/2007 04:37
Absolutely stunning!

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 12/1/2007 03:40
O-M-G! It's so good pice with only 28 colors. Amazing with vista colors! I like the BG very much, but the water in the river looks like a mud. Girl's dress looks like scales. GJ still.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/1/2007 03:14
True what greenraven said about the dress, but even that looks good.
Love the water.

Snovind (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/1/2007 03:09
Perfect use of the colours.
Looks very stunning

7even (Level 9 T-rex) @ 11/30/2007 23:40
I knew this challenge wouldn't be easy. Just plain awesome, and excellent use of the Vista pallete. 7/7 indeed ;D

l3m0n5 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/30/2007 20:45
wow this is beautifully done, i can't even tell that u were ristricted by the default colors, it looks like u managed to get all that u wanted out of the piece while sticking to the colors, wow im just wowed..this is one of my votes for sure...:D

..::Naso::.. (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/30/2007 20:25
Very nice, i love the texture of the swamp monster.

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/30/2007 16:43
The woman seems to just jump out of the drawing when compared with everything else. I like it.
