...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 make music.

I'd re-post my entry for the Halloween Background Blitz, if it weren't cheating (and if it wouldn't suck compared to BerserkerTails') ;)

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.

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!

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.
