A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

worse, actually. try shading the individual rocks by hand. It will not only increase volume, but also make for a better whole.
Also, keep your hands off gradient and burn/dodge tool. They more often than not ruin entire pictures.

Nice job so far. You have some shading here and there (nose, ears), but the most part lacks it. Please add proper shading and I am sure it will be great. Also, the bottom and top edge are not 200px wide.

I know the height is not 500 :(

Anyways, I'm not sure if I should add something on the totem itself?

Come on, it's not hard to work on a canvas that's 500px high. If you just resize it, all you get is a warped pic.
Overall this pic is not acceptable. I'd feel bad to go into a in-depth explanation here. PM me if you need details. Generally I'd suggest looking up proper pixel art in the art portal and see what differentiates pixel art from just art done with the pencil tool / without any anti-aliasing.

Yeah it's still open, but not for long anymore. I'll try to work out a deadline with Chameneon, I am to blame for the delay of that.

Note to everybody, who didn't get back to me about changes or didn't post them here: Your pic won't be accepted if you didn't reply here or get a final approval from me or Chameneon via PM, this also includes pics where we asked for rather minor changes. We will post a list so you can inform us if we missed yours.

I guess that was a transparent PNG. The forum has trouble handling these. Just make sure the file in the dump is ok. The dump preview will also be clunky, but should be ok when it's downloaded. Great job by the way.

Yeah it's still open come jump on board.

@test-object: Your totem is outstanding and accepted of course. Just felt the need to say it here in the thread again, cause sometimes tinychat is not enough. |:3|

Don't worry too much about making it match others, i will do my magic to make things fit nice and snug...

So seen as people are still wanting to join, i would say give them one more week.... *so until the end of Sunday 14th* to get it posted and handed in... in that time i should hopefully have put together everything i need to do my end of things.

@Mabelma : I usually check if the bottom and top edge have the correct width before I accept, but I'm not on my comp at the moment and this looks pretty much right. Quality-wise it's definitely in, great job.

I have been talking with Cham about the very same deadline suggestion. Obvious that it's the best choice, cause this can't be a coincidence.

So from now on you have one week to get your pieces in.

Offical deadline: July 14th 2013, 11:59pm NG time (EDT)

That should be plenty of time to finish. This is what I have right now.

I haven't re-checked the top and bottom widths since I started laying in value, so they might be off.

Very original concept. It looks all very natural, kinda "grown", if you can't adjust the width of the edges easily, you could PM our friendly neighbourhood LegolaSS and ask him if he would link you up to a piece in a way that you can keep it that way. Looking forward to seeing the finished product. :D

Thanks, I appreciate it.

If it's off, resizing won't be a problem. I just figured I should say something in case the size was an issue.

as long as the widths are not miles out and near enough centred I can not see a problem with it.

just try to keep to the original dimensions, also upload a to scale .png with a clear background when finished.

( can upload into your personal dumpingrounds found here )
