First WIP stage of my entry: The idea behind this one is that an UFO has landed beside the no parking sign, and a policeman has come to give them a bill for ignoring the no parking sign. Very cliché indeed. Only thing pixelled yet is as you see the sign and part of the street.

Edit: The whole thing is of course going to be bigger than the current canvas.

a photo taken amidsts a terror mission D: unfortunately the poor bloke died soon after this was taken.

you can tell that isn't done right :(

no, floaters didn't carry two guns. yes, they were the easiest set of enemies for terror missions (f**k you, cyberdisks and chryssalids), but also the most memorable. and sh*t i hated terror missions at night ._.

I'm not the only one who's played xcom am I?

I have a question!
Canvas have to be 4:3 ratio, I wonder if it could be also 3:4.
I mean, I have done this so far:

That's 120x160.
Have I to fit to 160x120 or may be accepted so?
It is obviously a mock-heroic Extra Terrestrial
