not going to bother trimming the color count etc down, though. I want to make something radically different...

@ kaki, NOT!!!
@ chess, beautiful, do more to it :D
@adam, can't wait to see where that leads
@fishmeester, looks like you have something going at least layout wise. Steer clear of the style use on that flower <--- looks cheap.
@setz, I like where you're going
@Vidd, O.O
@drZool, you have become a big part of my week.


@guts, man that kept going over my head. You didn't even make that, jeez, I can be such a tard.

Nice start klav. Ditch the black color. The greens of the trees are not iso fyi. Those are face on 2D. Actually the very top 'cone' is iso but it gets less iso as it goes down.

Mine is nearly finished now. According to Graphicsgale the color ammount is 16. But I've only used 15 so there must be a stray pixel in there somewhere :P

Aaand.. it's done! Fixed a few anatomical issues on the statues and added some extra detail on the trees and bushes. Will submit this tomorrow just in case I find something else that needs polishing. :)

Johannest: not bad for so few colors.. but why do you limit yourself to 5 colors?

Exitium, very nice! but I think you lost the atmosphere from your previous post.. on the latest, there is too much contrast on the sculptures of the BG imo.. they look very close.. and I kinda liked the way they were not completely defined on their bottom (like ground fog..) pretty good tho

here is mine.. nearly there..

i agree. the underside of the cloud just needs a little different shape, maybe just a little more like the circleshaped upperside, not too much though...

dithering is nice but i would go for a third colour in the sky, to give it just a bit more depth. (especially in the upper left side)
