My third weekly challenge!

I had fun doing this one... The pure white shade is the transparent color (though, it's possible I could have made better use of that). The pattern on the placemat-like-thing is really there just to keep it from looking too boring.

good stuff - bottle appears to be drawn over the picture somehow.

Yes it's a worthwhile addition, i especially like the peppers.

Aw ,rats! I didn't check out PJ until this morning, so I didn't know I had to remove the white... Oh well. I thought I read on the forums that the only loophole we had was the transparent color, so I used the white. Doesn't matter now anyhow. :P

Kind of a bummer I guess, but it's not like I wasted time working on this. I still consider it a nice addition to my gallery. :)

White is not allowed in this challenge.
This must be changed before midnight or it can't be in the challenge.
sorry man, them are da rulz.

Darn you Seven! Yeah, you're pretty much right about the perspective (I actually modified the bottle a bit before I submitted it to the gallery, but I overlooked the glass). I'll see if I have time to touch it up.

Dra_Chan: Thanks, you've jinxed me now. :P As for the transparent color... the transparency is just what would be around the sprite so you can see the other layers or background (usually clear/nothing/transparent in games) but since this isn't going to be moving or anything I can make that transparent color anything. I picked the white just so you could see the glass better against the background.

Everyone: Thanks for all the kind comments! :)

This piece is awesome, it will probably win, but I don't think you can use pure white, it's not the same as transparent color, not being able to use white is part of the challenge I think, or it would be in the palette,

Really like that.

amazing. simply amazing. love the apples and wine bottle. i aspire for backgrounds like yours.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 11/6/2008 11:08
I realized that later too... Silly me.. ;)
Still you made nice use of them!

DUN?KY (Level 1 Thug) @ 11/6/2008 10:45
Just .... Ouuuuaaaah   , crazy work

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 11/6/2008 07:16
This is rather nice!!  I like the blending on the background and the use of the colors for shading (as was already said!)

7even (Level 9 T-rex) @ 11/6/2008 06:50
Awesome shading and use of colors, BUT... Aren't the perspectives from the bottle and glass wrong? According to what I see on the table - and the table itself - I should be seeing the "top" of them.

this is just ridiculous. I love the style, everything just looks so smooth. And i really like the interesting take on shading the bottle and glass light reflection.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/5/2008 15:52

Not much else to say:)

FishBoy (Level 1 Private) @ 11/5/2008 14:35
I like it.  *filler* *filler*

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 11/5/2008 14:03
Thanks! But in all fairness, I didn't choose the colors since they're mandated for the challenge, heh.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 11/5/2008 13:37
You have chosen some really awesome colors for this!
