Title: Background Blitz: January 11-17
Post by: Alexis Vale on 10 Jan 2004, 20:53
Theme: Weekend

Restrictions:
Colors: Grayscale
Size: Any size

Explaination:
Okay, just draw any place you go on the weekend (or free time). For example, a pub. You can use any size. It just has to be entirely in grayscale, but there are no limits on the amount of grayscale colors you can use.

Good luck!

[Edit] Sorry, I will not be here on Saturday to vote because something came up. Best wishes to all and I hope the voting goes well. Congrats to the winner. [/Edit]

Thank you, Alexis, for hosting this!! I am very grateful but did you know that background blitzes usually are two weeks long.

I will start working on my entry as soon as I come up with a good idea.

Ah, I like this weeks theme - Not just because it's in grayscale, but also because it enables me to draw this:

I'd prefer to spend my weekend in front(or on top of) a stage, listening to good music... Please ignore the bad proportions of the drum set, and awe at the fact that an Gibson SG is the coolest guitar ever. ;)

Oh no - I know it's supposed to be red, but not here it is - It's as grey as my braincells, foo!

It does seem to have a little red in it. But it's so close to gray that it hardly makes any difference..

Looks nice. Though the body of the guitar should be wider, I think.. Or maybe just shorter.

I spend weekends locked up in a room playing music.

Sorry, the server seems to be a bit unstable. I hope you can make something of the image at some point. :)

Oh man that style is good pessi.

Sorry for the pointless message. Usually dont post these.

Edit: Couldn t help it, so here s a comment: Some sort of structure to the wall would really help I think (the even surface clashes a bit with the rest of the image).

I vote for Rincewind, Pessi's is great but it's not really a background.

I vote Evenwolf.  I just got a stronger image in my demented little head of this being used in a game. [Ambient blathering, sounds of passing cars & maybe a clown-inspired bouncer, who knows?]  Besides, Rincewind used pink. :P

I recast my vote from Rupert to Rincewind.

Rupert doesn't really exist, and I have school starting really soon.

Weela - So this means I should start a new blitz, in other words? Rightey-ho.
Kudos to all of the other entries - All worthy winners!
