Finally redid the moon.

Another black-and-white TI-83 plus drawing, this time of a castle on a cliff. Not as good as the lighthouse, I may make some edits later on, but I like it and decided to submit it anyway. Crits and comments are welcome.

 Given the number of pixels and the one-bit graphics, this is very nice.

Nice work!

Thanks! I hope my piece inspires you to try something like this! There isn't enough black and white stuff on here, and what there is, is usually big and dither-heavy and therefore rough. Black and white is all about setting the mood.

Great update. Nice work. :)

You can leave the icon as is. It is the rule that the icon match. However since Larwick and Cure, both Mods didn't mind, its 2 against 1 and you win...

...for now

Thanks for the critique, Larwick. The moon was slightly different in the original, same style but more refined, but it takes so long to copy these things over from the TI that sometimes I take little shortcuts. I was also unhappy with the moon on this one but couldn't quite figure out why so I submitted it anyway. I'll change it.

     And I did leave most of the stuff in the preview, but took out the castle because I didn't want to soften the impact when people veiw the actual piece. I can change it. I just thought that it was preveiw enough because all that was missing was mentioned in the preveiw message, and the title. The ocean is a bit more detailed, that was done after because the preveiw looked sorta plain. If people want me to change it I will

The moon is dissapointing, since this is a lovely little piece. Either take it out entirely, or make it smaller and just a solid circle, closer to the castle.
Atm it's too close to the edges, too big and has an off shape.

My favorite so far.

to raelz: maybe because a preview is meant to be a "preview"..

raelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/8/2007 15:06
to jalonso:
I disagree - many people add "CLICK!" etc. to their previews, why couldn't he add this?

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/8/2007 14:58
Awesome again. Please make the icon the same as the pixel (rules).
