@Igthorn. Maybe it's transparacy (if it's in it). that counts as a color too

Try editing the grass, it looks too plain much like the valcano background. And some of Watson's hat is gone. Also how did you count how many colors you had?

It looks like it's the color rgb:  0,170,173 which is in the magnifying glass, sky and a few other places.  It doesn't look like it's part of the ega pallette.
It should be a 0, 170, 170
 
EDIT:  And the one's jal mentioned.

 I love this image!  Holmes is so... Holmesey...that's a word now -
As for the rogue pixel - that is a good theory - I've tried to find a colour indicator thingy - but the software doesn't support Celri as an official language yet - hope someone can help!
 
Again - love the pic :)

Well im done for the day and this is what I got so far. C&C. Also any ideas for more monsters to put in here? I only have one that is not in there and that is the invisable man. Also keep it to classic monsters, I got mine from Mad Moster Party (the video!).
 
 
Im hoping I can finish tomarrow.

Hi there! 

 

Did you see the movie Hellboy II?  There's a forest monster in there that kind of takes over the city by covering everything in plants and stuff - it's about the size of a 6 storey building... The cool thing is that you can still make out the original shapes of the cars and bikes and stuff under the plants!

It might really bring the Edags into your pic!

Here's my work so far.

I suddenly realized that i haven't even thought about the background... any suggestions where the monsters should be fighting? I had the idea of putting them over a breakfast table, but there's no explanation why should anyone have a magnifying glass at breakfast, right? Anyway, thx!

Quick update as promised.



Hopefully I'll be able to get it finished. Sorry about the lazy background but I couldn't think of anything to put in there. Any ideas there would be super helpful :) I'll finish off the arm, probably put a spiky bubble around the letters... possibly other things XD

Please please C&C!

hi! I really like the expression you captured.  I think the way the background is on the right hand side is actually cool, you should transfer it to the left side also.  His lips are very, very thin.. maybe bulk them up a bit.  Very nice work!

Hi there Feniks 
Looks like Igthorn is taking over Gummy Glenn!  (Just kidding!) 
 
I absolutely LOVE the idea - Egads the Pope and all!  You could, maybe, add that gorgeous regal red in the background, bringing in something of the papal office's gilded decor maybe?  Or that famous scene in Angels and Demons where they show the Pope's bedroom - huge headboard - just to give him a little context - again - really great concept!
 
PS:  I KNOW what you mean - technology!

@Generatedanomaly:   Absolutely Egads! 

I can't wait to see the final product!  I think the background suits the style of the text you used so maybe adding axtra will detract from the impact of the current message - unless you want to maybe add a suggestion of what he is seeing to contextualise the egads-ness - anyway, I love it, great pic -

Things left to do:

Umm... It is a very nice image but I am bothered by the dark duck's buldge by his beak (I know its his wing but it looks a bit big). Also I don't know whats wrong with them but the feet look all wrong... other then the grass being added I think it looks good.
 
Also I have just finished my submision but I want last critiques before I submit it.
 
 
C&C please, I really want to hear what you guys have to say.
 
Edit: Just submited it to newgrounds!

I see you added some new buildings, nice!
- About the monsters, i specially like the sun bathing devil on the rooftops.
- Don't know for sure if that monster falling from the window is a mummy or a skeleton, but you could still use one of them here.
- And just as a last suggestion, i think it would be nicer if the reaper faced that scared guy.
Nice work

Hi there Mis-BUG, the palette is very hard to deal with.
I'm not into the compo, but maybe a little less dithering would have saved a little bit the noisy feeling.
just IMHO, and btw nice work anyway.

I think that if Cthulhu wasn't as dithered as everything else is, he'd be more readable. That area around the tentacles and shoulder is hard to read especially. Nice work!

I have removed as much black as I can from the image using it only where I think its crucial but would love some feed back regarding the rest.

Many thanks

Thanx for the vote of confidence @celri !

Been throwing your idea around but seems a bit complicated. So thought I would imply a chair rather than change it all. I also eliminated all the black I think was unnecessary. the green backround was also not working for me... not very popey if you get what i mean...   
 so this is how far i am... any cc is appreciated.
 
lets just  say i feel humbeled by the other entries...

I really like the "popish" chair already!  Keep at it!  You might want to look at the function of the text in your work - it's indicating the obvious "unpious" obsesion with Dan Brownian "mythology"... but maybe you could emphasize the text in a way that makes it prominent to the un-Dan-Browned version of society... again, your idea has a LOT of potential!!!!!

Thanks Peach and Jeremy for your replies (and of course for your tips)...
I tried to make a noisy one using dithering because I wanted to make it feel like a real old fashion EGA game back from the '80... Perhaps I've gone too far XD
Anyway I think I don't like it because of the sketch and colours arrangement too, but now I've no time to do it again :S ...
I think I'm going to submit it anyway and keep your tips for next work... Thanks again ;)

Hello there, i submitted my piece to the challenge a couple of hours ago and it's pending approval now. I just want to know if there's a chance of it being rejected, because of the countdown... There are still 11 minutes left. I'm just asking because i really don't know how it works. (and i'm scared)
