Title: Background BlitzZz: from now until Dec 6
Post by: Inkoddi on 22 Nov 2003, 22:58
Woohoo!! First time I entered a Background Blitz and I won!

The theme this time is: Gloomy forests

So, just make a spooky/gloomy/haunted/scary/weird forest with trees here and there and stuff

Restrictions:

Size: 320×200 or 640×400
Colors: 256
Must contain trees

Let's get started!!

...Is it against the rules to use a background from the game you're making?

If not... This one is only 40 colours, and is 320 x 200.

I'd re-post my entry for the Halloween Background Blitz (http://www.agsforums.com/yabb/index.php?board=9;action=display;threadid=9147), if it weren't cheating (and if it wouldn't suck compared to BerserkerTails') ;)

I hope more enter. It would be a pity to have just two enteries.

Time to start voting, I'm voting Kaaz - V nice work and it has an unsettling ambiance.

I vote berzerkertails, I like the palette & style.  I'm really into Kaaz's entry but it strikes me as more of a sunset-forest than a gloomy one.  Either way, great work everyone!

they are all nice, but my vote goes to AlexisVale. There is just something about that picture i can't describe. It does remind me of Charlie Brown cartoons, and the great pumpkin patch. I really like it.

BG  :)

Mr. Hyde reaches in his pocket and pulls a wrinkled, discolored, torn-and-taped-back-together 1$ bill out of his wallet, and slides it across the table to OneThinkingGal and ._.

"...make me the winner... and there's more where that came from..."

Eh, what the heck... my vote goes to KaaZ.  Although, the sky could have been a little darker.  Other than that, it's a quality BG!

hmmm...and now what ?...thought it was supposed to end at the 6th...
Title: Re:Background BlitzZz: from now until Dec 6
Post by: WanderLady on 09 Dec 2003, 20:17
Inkoddi, it's alright if you announce the winner. Usually when OTG is here she will, but since she hasn't been, the author of the Blitz is allowed.

It's been done before, if you have any misgivings.

Post by: Inkoddi on 09 Dec 2003, 20:19
er... OneThinkingGal and ._. hasn't posted since November 29th...   ...hmm...

and the winner is... *drumroll*...kaaZwith 5 votes!

Congratulations kaaZ! You may now start the next Background Blitz!

Yep the author is the one who should end it...I should really write all this down. ^_^ I'm just the backup person.

Congrats kaaz!
