I can relate. I was high as a kite 95% of the time I spent making mine. Which explains alot, such as why the hell Cap'n Crunch just left a jungle to go hang out with a bunch of elves. It also explains why I wasn't paying attention to the color count, and exceeded it.
yeah... when i checked the submission last friday, i just saw 3 or 4 submission, and thougth about triying something. i always had an idea or inspiration for every challenge, the problem is that i don't always finish it, or not always had time(i had over 10 unfinished challenge wips). fortunately, my entry for this submission took me less time that i thougth(considering that i've spent more than 20 hours in one single entry) and i could finish it in time.
good luck everyone.
