wow, snake managed it perfectly to make his entry so rich and detailfull, and yet not too complicated to be visually attractive. also I love the different moods expressed by the different parts of the picture. for me this is a picture to learn from, not only in terms of pixelart techniques.

mirres entry is great too, having this very nice palette and a gradient over 200 pixels only done with 2 colours :D
also I really like how the stars look in the lower area which really makes them look like they were shining through the dark-blue atmosphere instead of looking like they were in front of it (seen from our side. oh well I guess I can't explain it right, nevermind)

Stunning entries, both of you :)

Snake - that's awsome.  Fantastic composition, style and contrast.  I showed my mom, and she was very impressed.  Then I told her it was pixel art.  ;D

Mirre - I really love that moon, the misty look of the gradient and the way the stars in the brighter sky aren't as clear.

Great job, both of you!

it was supposed to be 240x160, not 160x240, which might cause some hassle later on ;) )

alluding to the final challenge, perhaps?! D:

Snake, love your entry, though, some parts seem a tad sketchy, but i guess that is expected when pixelling a sky, something that isn't really structured or defined, as well as with limited colors. A great job overall. I kinda wished the lightening was more contrasted, but it looks nice.

Mirre, I like the layout of yours, a nice vertical panoramic, but i can't help but feel that the 50% dither throughout most of the lower portion could have been mixed up a little, with different patterns to add more interest. The moon is nicely done, and it flows well as a whole. Good work.

Uh-oh...
lol, what a stupid mistake (I was just waiting for myself to do something like that).


And wow snake, I totally love yours. It's such a great mix of calm sky and storm. I especially like the lightning, and the parts where the light shines through the clouds.

The last round is going to be... exciting. I'm looking forward to it.

Was really hoping for Blick to show up. Ah well. That's some effective dithering you've got going Mirre, had to zoom to notice.

Guess I'm up against you in the final round after all. Can't wait to see how this turns out! I wish you the best of luck in the finals.

(and I'm still waiting for those WIPs  ;) )
