I forgot I was supposed to post it here :P

Well, here's my first WIP of the challenge, "That was so last decade..."
It's called "Last Stand of the Whitehouse."


There is going to be an exploding helicopter on the top right hand corner, but Im not quite sure how to draw it. Any ideas?

Update, Sky's done:


Update 2, removed the temporary clouds, I didn't think they would work in this piece.


Update 3, basic colors are in.


Update 4, black outlining removed.

Good idea, pixels might still improve.
There is not much shading / contrast on the house; also the explosion doesn't really look like one (need some red/yellow/white highlights).
Btw, where's that helicopter? Some falling bits would help I think.

Keep at it, plenty o'time still! ;)

Bit of a strange one from me. Here's my work-in-progresses so far.




Then started dithering a background (GraphicsGale), but probably will try to replace with some advice.



I have no idea what to do with this anymore...

Aye, iPods were 2001... maybe the robots... built them early... ;-;

What about the 'iKill', then? iMacs were around in 2000 as far as I know.

Other MP3 players were around before 2000. Also, walkmans/discmans as Jeremy was saying.

Yep, iMacs were around back then too, the ones with the huge coloured monitors D:

01/01/00, people wake up to a brisk chill and a world of no electricity. Power grids around the world have collapsed, bringing virtually everything to a grinding halt... including security.



Well, I might not finish. Working on a small netbook with a small laptop mouse has proven itself not to be one of my best laid plans.

Hey boonzeet, I made a quick edit of your entry:

I made the laser's light and the lightning on the robot stronger, hope this helps you.
You can call me Twirly (more like Surly :|)
