Damn, me and my ridiculous posting speed.. my votes wouldn't have affected the final score though, because I would have voted for:
category (because voodoo doctors are cool; on a side note, I second what Ilyich said - it does have a Jagged Alliance-ish feel!),
(because of the brilliant sinister folk tale touch, and because the individual elements are perfectly crafted - the spooky relief on the right side of the chapel is a prominent example)
(not much to comment on here, hehe - perfectly coherent, harmonious background. I always loved your choice of colors and the attention you pay to the detailed finishing)
(because while all entries would be perfectly functional as in game backgrounds, this is the only one that doesn't look like a transition location, ie. room that serves as an entrance to a more important location)
Big congrats Miez, it's been ages since I saw a new work of yours. Do participate in Blitzes a bit more often, would you?
Also, thanks guys for the crits, I do have this readability issue with my works (I'm fighting it though). The composition was indeed intentional, I wanted the design to go with the idea and evoke the menacing, "crawly" feeling. But if you're having trouble making out what's in the picture, then I didn't do good enough!
I had this for a rough reference (hard to believe they're real.. America is such a crazy place):
Thanks for the great theme waheela, this Blitz turned out really well.
