perfect land covering

Very nice.

And don't worry too much about refs. It is wise to post them when you use a direct reference, but in this case I don't think it was necessary. You didn't really copy anything other than the general feel of it and the colors.

 Brilliant texture and contrast c:

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 8/24/2012 14:11

Good texture, nice dither! Nice colors too

LeD (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/24/2012 10:04

The contrast between the messy martian landscape and the monolith is fantastic. I know who's getting my vote : D

Friend (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/24/2012 09:34

the black wall is really cool.  Only crit I have is the stone work on the left looks a bit too messy and dithery

 Amazing dither work, can't stop looking at it.

carrion (Level 7 Underboss) @ 8/23/2012 11:03

 wow. the black stone is nice part as it steals focus, but at the same time the background is kool too. good job. as always I appreciate the dither work.

hnt6581 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/21/2012 06:01

Ok, cool, will do in future...

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/21/2012 04:26

We don't have to ask you for your reference, you should just post it.

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 8/20/2012 05:54

This is just great.

hnt6581 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/19/2012 06:13

..and to _Connor - Thank You sir! ..for comment and fav... ..I thought these pixels at least deserved to participate as well, and we'll see what other people say... Thanks again!

hnt6581 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/19/2012 06:02

Thank You authority!!! A little while ago it was starting to look like I was gonna be held up past the deadline!

philippejugnet  - there's no real reference image, the basic layout is from this image http://yaymicro.com/stock-image/rocky-desert-landscape/1568640 - the rest is adlib directly from head or rather hand.

 This is by far my favourite of the entries thus far. If this doesn't get in i probably won't even vote. You should be proud of this regardless of whether it gets in or not.

If need be, maybe make the logo a feature of the pillar... just so nobody can say it isn't obvious.

hnt6581 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/19/2012 04:48

No I didn't. It's near the center on the right edge of the pic. Good thinking, tho...

CakeDrake (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/19/2012 04:20

Did you forget the logo?

hnt6581 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/19/2012 02:30

Hellooooo! Would someone from the Greater Pixel Authority please approve this in time to be viable for Weekly Challenge? Anyone? I don't think it's THAT bad, it's been laying here in limbo for 2 straight days with only 20 hrs left to make it into the challenge... What? wtf?! Am I offending someone, or do fail to comply to some religious mumbojumbo? what? ..oh wait, could it be because I failed to suckup to veterans in the wip thread? ...what a drag...

Dredlockz (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/18/2012 23:40

 I love the dithering!
I think the amount of dithering can be used as a style choice as well, and is not necessarily "wrong".

FatPixel (Level 1 Private) @ 8/17/2012 11:15

 Do use the imagination then , make some wind pusts or "clouds" in the air . Though I am noob so you don't need to do it . 

hnt6581 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/17/2012 06:48

Haha I know I know. I use dither where it's supposed to be and also where it's totally unneccesary. What I can do? I just can't stand empty blobs...

cirpons (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/17/2012 06:42

Use less dither?
