Hi people!...will anybody be actually doing this challenge? it sounds pretty boing,but it turned out great for me!...so by "no animations" does that mean no animations on the small file and the detailed file,or just on the detailed file? and same question goes for the transparency and color

Well, previews should be cropped parts of the detail file, or at least related to the detail file. So I guess if you really wanted to you could snazz up the preview with animation.

yeah,and by the way i can upload images only up to 100x100 and it says image size unlimited so probably most of the good artists will be doing big images with a lot of dithering,so us who have 100x100 will have no chance against bigger images.

Size has no effect on the quality of the image.

100x100 for the  SMALL image (icon). Any size for the actual image.

@AoBaka: you upload a canvas larger than 100x100 in the detail file. Participating is more important than winning. The best artists don't dither.

@rafal: using someone else's palette is fine, just credit where it came from.

@ SturmgewehrKreuz , I think that canvas is too big. It would need a lot of detailing to be done on time and there is little time left. Think smaller canvas.

You might find something like imgur.com a better imagehost that ImageShack for pixelart so that when members click to zoom it doesn't go to imageshack and their crazy zoom/blur madness.

@Bokeblender: is the temple supposed to be off-centered like that?

What you guys think about this? (SturmgewehrKreuz I got your post)
