Very nice idea, I like it - and I've given myself a lot of time to try and get a entry done.

Based on Cure's 'I Am Legend cause it's cool. :p

Ultra-cool motherf**ker.

6. badass

Awesome to an extreme level, thereby leveraging unquestionable authority.

Ok Gas, here's an early wip :)



Loving yours btw.
And Kfuchoin's came along nicely as well, I'd go for a mixture of the old and new one, i.e. using a brighter outline for the bubble but basically sticking to the new palette.

Great work everyone   Kfuchoin: I think the more saturated blue makes things more lively, but both are looking good

Excalibur, it looks awesome so far. Not sure about the colors, maybe shifting hue of dark color will improve it?

i also think that it would be nice changing the hue on the foreground a bit more blue, and maybe the coral on the background needs to have a hue a little closer to the foreground. besides that it's brilliant

If everything's alright you will have an interesting challenge. At least I find it interesting. The idea was so messy that it turned into something new, where some of admins should take part... We'll see :)

And, as far as I know there's no rule not to join for those who set up the challenge topic (though I find it wrong). Anyway, I don't even know how this challenge will sound in the end, so I'm in equal situation.

Ok, shutting up before the ban :)

The reason challenge winners have been allowed to participate is because this weekly challenge thing is still new and all the kinks are still being ironed out. When a winner submits a challenge it can take a while to iron out the rules and details (see my siggy). Some other challenges jump or even the PJ staff will throw one in. In time this will become easier to coordinate and then we'll probably ban winners from their own challenges. For now its part of winning to get an edge but is by no means a guarantee, the best always wins ;)

"Will dither circles for food" is about you, right :)

Looks great so far. Looking at the sketch I suppose you have the hardest times detailing background. Hold out!

Don't forget to add bright highlights on that metal things. High contrast is a must.
