I really loved this week's challenge, the pallette's were great!
The submissions were great too, and so many!
I'm not really satisfied with the grass .. but I'm a lazy ass, I won't fix it.

Good luck to everyone who submitted. :33

Edit: Added BLACK whiskers. I tried adding black to the shadows at first, but the contrast became too big for this one.  I also fixed up the grass a little.

Edit 2: Removed the black whiskers/native markings, and added a black outline instead. Thought I'd try some shine as well.

Great you got rid of the whiskers!
I voted for you.

Exxo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/18/2010 12:33

 Yeah, thanks a lot for the cnc everyone, really helped me along!

I'm glad you kept trying after the whiskers "trick" (it was not noticeable that it was a 4th color)

Exxo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/18/2010 09:57

 Ok, edited it. First time AAing though.

Suggestion: use the black for all outlines, then use the second darkest colour for AntiAliasing. In fact, even if you keep the black where it is now, you could still use some AA anyway.

 Rules are rules =/

Couldn't find any good use for it.

Good angular view of the birds head. The black is somewhat seems useless too me though.

Exxo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/17/2010 17:48

 Nope, but I couldn't figure out anything else to add, be it whiskers or just marks.

ZeroSum (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/17/2010 17:33

The whiskers look out of place, looks much better without. Do birds even have whiskers?

 Good, i like it 

Exxo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/17/2010 13:21

 Yeah I remembered on my bus ride home, I'll edit it right away! o3o

Edit: Ok, added black whiskers, cause .. I couldn't figure out where else to put anything black. And together with the feathers on it's forehead I think it gives him a nice 'native' feeling.

Might be edited again.

 Yes, this have just 3 colors, but I think isn't hard to add the other color. This is awesome ^^

Hey, you'll need to include the black for this to be accepted into the challenge.
