For the weekly challenge 'Unpalletable'.

It's the Dino Piranha to celebrate the upcoming release of Super Mario Galaxy 2.
Taking the colours from Fire fox for some reason was different than taking them from an explorer browser, no idea why, but I had to tweek the colours after I finished the piece.  Is that normal?

Always love me some Mario!

I was expecting this one to take first or at least second place.

Definitely deserves more love.

Just felt like saying this, but this is amazing. Looks like you chose these colors!

Damn nice job!

I can't decide whether I like the dithering on the planet or not. It looks fine at normal size, but zoomed in it's just ugly.

truly epic

EDIT: whoops! sorry about the double post!

Firefox 3.5 has color correction turned on by default. I'm not sure about 3.6, though. Firefox 3 has color correction but it is turned off by default. In any case, that could be the source of the color difference you saw.

Excellent piece! I didn't even realize at first that this is for the challenge. Great use of the colors! I'm not a big fan of the dithering style used in the sky, and the black dithering on the ground is a bit jarring. It needs a smoother transition to be effective, I feel. Other than those minor things, this looks great!

Feed me awwwwlll niiiight loooowwwwnng!


This is excellent, and I appreciate that the preview font screams Mario.  Can't wait for Galaxy2

ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 5/5/2010 09:03

StepDragon (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/5/2010 08:08

Very nice, wish I had thought of that...

Thanks for comments.

 Dithering is king. Well done, looks really awesome!
