I forgot all about having to submit itand slept at a friends place :/

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/29/2011 00:47

 Oh dear. A lot of awesome stuff ended up not being submitted :(

Sooba (Level 1 Gangster) @ 8/28/2011 19:06

 Lots of Magika lookin' wizards here!

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/27/2011 14:42

 I foresee a veritable influx of all sorts of awesomeness tomorrow, if the forum thread is any indication :)

(hint: it is)

MIERDINSKY (Level 8 Partner) @ 8/27/2011 13:35

I want to win:)

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/26/2011 13:28

 this challenge is really bursting with quality entries.  awesome stuff going on.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/24/2011 12:39

 The canvas is square-ish, I might want to change that :D

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/24/2011 12:06

I love the colors as well! I love your piece, and I love that it's non-square ^-^

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/24/2011 09:43

Also, I've heard that the Internet was already broken :)

I am having a very good time drawing the piece for this challenge, though. Love the colors.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/24/2011 09:10

Yes! we caught that error on the checker too. Hatch will fix that real soon...7 colors - 8 if trans is used.

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/24/2011 07:10

So I didn't break the internet? That's good at least :3

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/24/2011 03:43

 Because it fails at logic :)

the next requirement says "7 specific colors" :)

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/24/2011 02:13

Just checked the checker. It gives me a FAIL on my image.

Colors 7 expected: 8–9 FAIL

why is it expecting 8-9 colors instead of 7 or 8?

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/23/2011 18:54

@MonekyCMonkeyDoo, use PJs challenge checker HERE

Just paste the url to the art and paste it.

2 tabs, a checker and a specs. Checker checks whatever challenge you want the other is just for general pixelarts.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/23/2011 14:36

Yummy palette ^_^

MonkeyCMonkeyDoo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/23/2011 10:15

 umm how do i make sure that theyre the correct colours?


Sublyme (Level 4 Murderer) @ 8/22/2011 14:52

does a dragin count as a magical creature?

artistictiger (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/22/2011 13:49

Hope i have some time to spare! i would so love to do something with this!!

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/22/2011 13:16

mm just noticed, our brightest color is a green. Mmm

CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/22/2011 12:59

I like this challenge. I will portray the most awesome wizards, the most powerful sorcerors and feared warlocks of all time.... the carebears.

Lynxiie (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/22/2011 09:32

 Does it have to be something that is real fictional magic like a witch or can it be magic tricks or something that you think is magical?

MIERDINSKY (Level 8 Partner) @ 8/22/2011 08:38

Incluirè algo de mitologìa de mi pais  ;)

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/22/2011 03:48

Very interesting challenge. I might try it out.

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/22/2011 03:02

I'm going to go and change my avatar to something more blocky :P

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/22/2011 02:46

I'm making an evil cat summoner. Summoning an evil cat spirit. So, no squares this time :)

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/22/2011 00:19

He will be banned if he makes something square! :o

(banned for 0 seconds, that is >_>)

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/22/2011 00:16

woohoo! Are we to expect square magic from Tarius?

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/22/2011 00:08

 Unrestricted canvas! Nice colors! Magic!
