@Jeremy Yes, I realize it was a joke, I was trying to make a clever pun, however an unfortunate typo kinda ruined it. The second sun was supposed to be son.

Well, I've added a few more colors. Still quite far from the challenge restriction, though :)



*edit* current version

I don't know what to do anymore, so I'm going to post it here, hope someone says something about it, and go back to it later.

...what is it exactly? I see the multicolored areas of sunlight, but I don't know what's going on in the bottom left and bottom right corners of the pic. What you could do, though, to justify the God-rays, is to add a sparse amount of cirrus stratus clouds and have shafts of light pierce through them. I like the overall color scheme, but I can't give much more critiquing without knowing what this is exactly.

Hey, all. I meant to post this here yesterday but I sorta ran out of time. Anyhow, here goes:

Since I recently snapped my left wrist had surgery on my left wrist, I figured I'd try to take up pixeling. I figured I'd take a crack at this challenge after reading some stuff on how to create, and color properly.

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/7/sraysentry.png/

As you can (hopefully, if the upload worked x.x) see, I am already having some big problems with my image. I managed to clear all of the jaggies from the smaller circle, but I have no idea where to start with the larger one. If you guys have any suggestions as to where to start, I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks,
Jacob

(If anything in this post sounds... well stupid, I apologize in advance, as I currently am on some pain killers. )

I wanted to have the water being sucked in up to one point. The sun is supposed to be dying in an expolosion, emitting all the energy, but I am yet to add the rays which will be that energy. I wanted to have a red color scheme, but I don't know how to make it look more like tinted water and distinguish it from lava.

Guys, I could really use some help. I can't even get started until I figure out how to get over this road-bump.

There are times where you'll have jaggies that you can't avoid. Most of the time it comes with really huge objects or things that involve huge curves. What you do at that point is apply AA, or anti-aliasing. (Not sure if you already knew what that meant :))
Apply it to the spots where it looks a little off, and it should work. Unless, someone else has some better advice?

@ThePixelKnight : Great ! :D The only thing that bothers me here is the low part of the ray which comes over Darth's shoulder. The shoulder's great, but where the ray is on the cape, it is strange how it comes to the foreground, it is a bit hard to know if we see the reflection of light on the leather, or if it is the ray itself.

@Graindolium: What's with all the creepy stuff?

@NeverCreature: UPDATE: Oh, now I see why. Forgot the shafts of light doubles your color count. I think you're fine. Still think the dithering needs some work, though.


Yes. For that reason dithering is an allied.

I've added more contrast and a dragon (they are fashionable I see it...).

But now I don't like it very much... (23 colours)

so, this morning I submitted some pixel art for this challenge <http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/69544.htm> and I thought I pressed the submit for weekly challenge button, but evidently did not (or the less likely of some form of computer error) should I re-upload it or is there something else I'm supposed to do?
