Mirre:

I really enjoy the colour scheme - and the way you did the gradient is awsome. Never seen it done like that before! However, it was supposed to be 240x160, not 160x240, which might cause some hassle later on ;) )

(becomes startled) Oh my!

Well then. Looks like things worked out for me in the end. I would have sucked this one up pretty bad. I wonder how diverse every one's pieces will look. I put $10 down, that 2 people will come up with a similar concept. I betcha' they will, I betcha'....

Good luck, and Pixel God speed!

Ooh, very different from the other rounds, and thats good!
Can't wait to see the entries.

(why is this topic posted in General Discussion?)
Because only mods and admins can start threads on the Challenges and Activities part.

Wow, this is a good idea. Not only is technical ability put to a great test, but so are the boundaries of imagination and interpretation. I can't wait to see the results! Good luck, guys! :y:
