Title: BackGround Blitz 21st June - 4th July
Post by: OneThinkingGal and ._. on 22 Jun 2003, 01:24
General Info: This is a background-design activity. Draw a background that fits the theme for the round with the given resolution and colour limits.

Right, this time we'll try an underwater castle, as per n3tgraph's request.

640x400, hi colour.

So shall we start:

You can find the owner of the castle quite easily (but he's neither shark nor crab). My home is my castle, is his motto.

I might be upgrading this (I'll edit then), but at the moment I'm too sea-sick with it. My idea at first, was to make a massive seashell combination, but it quickly turned out to look a bit more modest type of castle.

I just got this image in my head just after reading the theme for the blitz, and then sat down and drew this:

I'm rather pleased myself.

You should be, it's great!

By the way, OTG, does this blitz really take that long (4th of May)? ;)

Teh whee, nice work all. Time to vote.

Also, since I'm busier at work lately, and also helping out a few AGSers with art, I don't have the time to coordinate  this activity, so if everyone is agreeable, we'll turn it into the same rotating system as the Sprite Jam and Tune Contest.

What do you people think? ._.

Artistically, I really love Rincewind's, but Necro's is so clever that I have to give him my vote.

So...my vote goes to Necro.  Yeah.

I think Necro's is the best!!! What?? Can't vote for your own?? Outragous!

Well then my vote is going to go to Rincewind (damn that puts him in the lead). But It was very close call with Mikko's.

My Fish needs a name...

There's actually no rule saying you can't vote for your own, provided you really think it is the best. :P
