  Welcome to "Zero Signal". The world where two suns shining in the sky and high-tech constructions are growing like mushrooms after rain.
  Strange weather phenomenons are covering planet's surface. Strong volcanic activities can be seen from distant places. Clouds of smoke, flashes and explosions of fire and lava - that area of planet is deadly for all creatures. 
  From far distances this happening looks like Burning Sunrise.

you got my vote for sure!!! Wondeful work indeed. 

Stinky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/16/2007 08:07
wow, that's beautiful!  keep up the good work!

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 8/15/2007 11:09
I'm finding your WIP steps much more appealing than the final piece. Much, much more. Frames 4 and 5 (mainly 4), i find, are far greater than this. This is too sharp and choppy! with the lack of colours i can understand though. It's also the palette of 4 which i love, i find this one doesn't bring half the depth to the screen. Also that dude's head is soooo small! :/

That said, this is really nice. I love the transition between the right and left skies. Looks like a really interesting world. :)

Ah, a classic

raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/14/2007 01:54
Yes, Gary Tonge's works inspiring me a lot, I even printed some of his pictures and hung it on the wall of my room =)

Huggkruka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/14/2007 00:42
I like it, it's like Gary Tonge in pixels!

CappyDee (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/13/2007 16:45
I love the the colors, keep this up :D

raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/12/2007 23:01
Just returned back to home from rest, and seems that my pj messagebox is full of messages;) Big big thanks everybody for feedback and fav's! Seriously, I didn't expected such massive reaction for my picture. I just fond of hires sci-fi environments and landscapes, and I wanted to  try doing sci-fi landscape in pixelart technique. So weekly challenge became final push for me to do this. And I think my next pixelarts need to be not worse than this one, it will be hard to achieve=)

momovampire (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/12/2007 02:12
Right down to the wide lens perspective distort thing.... this is a painting of a demigod!!

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 8/11/2007 22:03
the image is truly great congratulations.  althought i feel you could have gone over this one more time because there are several places where aa is missing. great work regardless.

Koch (Level 6 Made) @ 8/11/2007 11:28
I really like the shading and coloring on the rocks in the foreground on the left.

Jellysauce (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/11/2007 10:33
this is in my opinion the best thing on pixel joint.

umcelinho (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/11/2007 05:31

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 8/10/2007 21:32

Id say the night sky should be way darker than the sunrise sky.

Ray, man, you're simply the best... this is fucking amazing.

Christopher (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/10/2007 09:48
Amazing work.
I see your very discreet use of reflections.

BlingShyne2 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/10/2007 08:11
This is awesome, I'd suggest taking the title off of the picture though, It seems out of place to me, but other thanthat this picture is incredible and a favorite of mine.

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 8/10/2007 07:32
small bit of reflection work on the water.

It's very nice, what can I say?  The design is a little contrived but that's partly what the challenge was about.

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/10/2007 07:16
Hmm, I quite like the concept but I can't seem to find reflections :D

Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/10/2007 07:14
We have a winner. Amazing work. 5/5 and fav'd.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/10/2007 06:33
Will someone call 911 please. I can't get up :/

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/10/2007 05:20
Brilliant mix of colours and a lovely scene

Drako (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/10/2007 02:51
wow, awesome          

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/10/2007 02:34
Great colors and pretty much everything. Only crit is that buildings don't integrate so good with the landscape.

raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/10/2007 02:27
Big thanks to all for comments and fav"s!
2Gas 13: yeah, I see now, it's error. But my Wacom is smoking, and I need to leave computer for some days, so this picture will stay "as is" now=)

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 8/10/2007 02:15
Woah, raynoah!

I wish the ships were reflecting the light coming from behind since they are high in the sky and that's panorama ;)

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 8/10/2007 01:57
Just awesome! I love it!

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/10/2007 01:22
Holy Crap...

I really love how you've used the colours in this and how the two parts of the world contrast eachother really well. This almost could've been an entry to the Parallel universe challenge.

Anyway...I'm going to cement my place as the first person to congratulate you on winning this weeks challenge :)...Well done :D

Josiah (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 8/10/2007 00:53

This is a fantastic entry :)

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/10/2007 00:24
Daaaamn. That's brilliant! 

soda (Level 10 President) @ 8/10/2007 00:03
