Thanks for the kind words and crit on both rounds Helm.

Thanks ZodiakLucien.

Great entries again everyone, I was really feeling bad about my entry, especially knowing I'm up against takam, as I've seen his great mockups. Goodluck to the next round, all.

Congrats, everyone! Snake's is cool (#3), and so is Buloght's (#2), but #1 to me happens to be...
Filax.
It's just...Awesome! I wish...Ooooh, how I wish there were more.
Snader's (#4) is also very very nice.

Yeah, Helm, I started with the crater because I felt like making one and then really wanted a bridge and realized "Oh shit, I need something alien and/or futuristic..."

Hence the spaceship. I also wanted to mess with dirt more, so I made it a crashed ship.

And you caught the sort of Mother/Earthbound thing dead on. Once I finished, it reminded me of exactly that.

Edit: Whoa, Feron, I just noticed the clever use of tiles. I never even thought about making my crater in the manner you did, by using the height of a tile with an isometric image within it, basically making the tile hold more than it's perceived capacity.

That's what I did during the given time.
I wasn't too inspired to make this isometric, so I didn't put much effort in to it.

Sorry guys, iso just isn't my thing.

I must say the quality of these entries is a lot better than i was expecting.

helm - thansk for the kind words.  perhaps my careful positioning took too much time and lost me this round.

BOB - I bow down to you my worthy opponent!

buloght - that is amazing.  The scale, whilst small, has an incredible amount of detail.  congrats.

Solididea - very impressed by your entry, keep up the good work.

one thing i find slightly unfair is how filax failed to complete the challenge yet still continues to the next round.  The challenge was to make an alien world/map - not 2 tiles on a colored canvas.  Nothing personal, filax, but i think GNdestroyer should go through instead (as he - in my eyes - was the best runner-up).

anyways, i'm not a judge.  Just saying.

Good luck Mirre. And congratulations. :D

You better go all the way now!
And I am finally seeing that you were the one worth eating.

SolidIdea, the water and cliffs on yours are very good. Good luck against snake  :)
Filax, you should continue working on that because what's there looks excellent.
Blick, I like the reflection of the bridge in the water  :y:
Mirre, I love the colour changes and the plants, it's the perfect place for your monster entry :)
9_6, I was going to do a similar idea to your trees but I ran out of time. Those little computer things are a cool addition.
Buloght & snake, yours are amazing!

Helm: Thank you for your critcs, I'll surely try to improve my pixel techniques to try to give snake some challenge. And start polishing my work.  :P

Feron: Thank you :) The craters in yours are amazing, the style is immense, I'd love to see it finished!

Lawrence: Thank you too, and damn the time :/ I'm sure you'd own me good, you are a far greater pixeller than I try to be.
It'd be cool to see this underground facility finished some time :)

Flaber: Sorry I couldn't respond to your PM. Soon after I sent mine, I travelled down some states, to resolve some pending affairs (soon I'll start university, and I need a place to live :P).
