I might join this one, not sure.

Something like a mirror box would be cool. You will see yourself with camera 4 times thats also a bit difficult to make i guess xD

or, (only it doesnt comply to the challenge rules) you make the panorama circle shaped to make i vanishing point in the middle... (i hope you understand what i mean)...?

(Edit: i wanna make the last one, but since it doesnt comply... i should make 2 ) (although im quite sure i forget to finish 1 of the two)...

Edit2: I think im going for a panorama and put them above each other (so you get ground, air and then more ground...

There are some examples on 360 degrees panorama photos on flickr:
http://flickr.com/search/?q=360+panorama

Check out the syndey 360 image if you want to have a bridge between
the previous challenge and this one

There are even some java/flash tools on the web you can use to
have a view of panorama pictures by moving the mouse so that
you get a tour ....

Best regards from

Nice, this one should be fun! I was wondering, are we allowed to toss a few characters in, or is the point to do just scenery? Ive got a few ideas that would be all the more fun with some humanesque folks in the mix.

ive been toying with entering this challenge.  not sure if Ill come close to finishing, but since no one else has put up a wip here's mine. 

i wanted to go with a buddhist/tibetan style landscape.  im  running out of colors and the scale and shape of the canvas are bugging the f@#k out of me.

I know if the rules don't disallow something it's considered okay, but is there a minimum ratio of width to height to have in order for something to be considered "panoramic"?  Or is it just the matching ends that make it so?

But your current canvas size is fine... 640x120 is the maximum size allowed, and that's what you have.

Ooh, I like the perspective of that Pnaky. I was thinking of something similar with a David Hockney scattered picture feel to it.

@Klav:  It'll be interesting to see how you stretch the 16 colors in that scene.

@MashPotato:  I don't know what ratio is considered panoramic... I think focusing on the ends connecting is the most important.

Well I heard when people take those kind of pictures they use a special 360 Camera.
So i think it's sopposed to be like that.

Hi, I'm new here. This week's challenge sounded challenging, so I signed up.

I will be going for a mirrorbox with non reflective top and bottom, witch imho is not all that difficult to make.

WARNING the following WIP is only a guidelines thing. It's not pixelart yet.

Planning to add animation and/or an eyeball character.
 
And yes, I did buy a set of 6 mirrortiles for study purposes.

@MistakeFur, I really look forward to your pano.
@Pnaky, that is one fantastic view.
@Klav, It has a very Chinese feeling to it, I likes.  *(DDD)

I forgot to make progress, but ill try to make something... and maybe if you see this image, youll see im making things difficult for myself...



So you dont only look 360, but also from one horizon to the other... and as far as i can see on everyone's pictures you all try to replicate some fish i lens-ish thing, but ill keep things flat.

Update:


It is now pixelled and the front-view has been centered. Also the perspective effect has been calculated rather than guessed by a perspective tool.

Still need to: Thicken the front lines and thin the back lines, set colours, and add animation and/or eyeball.

i agree. And even if you were doing it wrong, it looks very promising so far for a high finish in the weekly showcase.



Progress so far, now you  might have an idea of what it should look like

dither is important for some structures etc tho

This is my entry to this challenge

http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/23563.htm
and WIP with some steps.


It took for me approx 8-9 hours to do this panorama, and I'm still not
sure that it's ready. There are a lot of places where detalisation isn't accurate. But I decided to submit it anyway, because
I'm going to take some rest and spend holidays outdoor with friends, so it will not be available to update this picture before deadline.
Required reflections: - city and aircrafts are reflecting in the water. And it was really hard to do this picture in 16 colors!
I hope you like it=)

Tnx soda 

The progress so far, from old to new:

(First sketch)

(Fast fill)

(Shaded landscape)

(Quick fill of the air)

(Halfway Finished dithering of the air)

Edit: (Fully finished dithering of the air)

Colours will be changed, first gotta finish dithering the air (Takes a lot of work, and some careful placement to make sure everything is pixeled in the right position as i am using 2 sides on the piece).

check with irfanview (www.irfanview.com)(It's free) (to check, paste and go to Image>Information

and nice work so far, although it will be a lot of work to finish on time

Another edit. now the palette is changed, i can start on the reflections:
Old


New


question about the reflections... does it have to be a bit reflective (like reflecting light) or reflecting shapes like chrome?

Edit: I saw that the reflection bit isn't too strict if i look at other pieces, so here i got my reflections on the droplets. Colour edit up next, and then it should be almost ready:


Edit: I think i am quite finished, this is the result:

Using the darker shade on the panels the farther it gets away would help with depth.

i was hoping to see a bit more interesting colours, if you have any more time. Cause i think the linework is awesome, and i love infrastructure, but the colours are just letting the piece down. if id change it, id make either the lights more orange and warmer (and darker) colours on the walls and floor, or i would make the lights cold and blue and make the walls and floors a bit blue-ish grey.
