Damn Jal stole my idea ):<

I'm wondering how to take a more original approach to the standard side view in front of a saloon with two gruffy McGunslingers going at it. If anything this competition will be interesting to see different styles on very similar pixels.

My WIP. Still have to add buildings and all kinds of stuff into the background.



If you recognize the character depicted in the foreground you are officially cool.

The original has a way better background character. If you go with the lit cigar then secondary lighting from it is essential. Otherwise looking good.

cool idea mistake fur. It'd be interesting to see a more modern background (robot cacti ftw) behind them, leading towards the idea that some things never change! :D

Yeah actually i reckon this is probably one of the least interesting challenges I've seen

The problem is that it's too specific...take the panorama for instance - it could be a panorama of anything...or the Australian one...it could be any Australian...

I think it would help to make the background a more orange color and take out the dithered area around the sun--it seems really incongruous with the rest of the piece. The outlines on the menus seem kind of out of place, too; it would look better for them to be the same color as the inside of the menu or a darker color than the sky so they show up better.

RPG is numberwang.

Attention!
Please make sure you are abiding by the rules of the challenge. Particularly the colour count and size parts. I have gone through each submission and removed almost half from the challenge so far.'

Please check the main site to see if I've sent you a message regarding this. You have just over 4 hours to remedy your mistakes!
