Drew it myself... I tried searching for a tetris pattern at first but couldn't find anything that looked good without watermarks, so I made one myself. I just used the render grid filter to draw a grid of 18x18 squares, then coloured them with the fill tool until I had a large enough, repeating pattern of tetris blocks, then added a little bevel and such to make the squares more tetris-like. Also, I used a NES palette for the colours!

I was going to draw a soviet/communist map, but DiM is too fast for me (or he has more free time ;))

Anyway I decided to develop a space view....it's different from what I had in mind (it's not totally finished :oops: ) but i'm really short with time so here we go:

yeah perspective is a bit not realistic....the size limits forced me to play with sizes a bit........but who cares? :P
A bit of creativity/fantasy doesn't hurt ;)

Yeah, creativity is what this is all about. Nice work! I like the clouds, there's a real feeling of movement in them...

well, this initiative had a really short life.

it's a shame, but i kinda expected this to happen, given the foundry's current situation.

Got images DiM to post but just not had time to polish and post. Remember RL comes into play now and then.

natty, this one seems done with, chose a winner of sorts as it is your thread and get them to post the next image.

Uh oh, someone didn't read the 1st page... ;)

There's no reason to stop this, in fact since the revamp comp is now at the same time I think it's best we extend this thing further... also because if there are no more participants than this, then I don't have any interest in continuing this.

it's not about polishing images winning prizes or competing.
it's about sharing techniques and advices and commenting on what we do.
you can post your images no matter how rough they are.

I know that DiM, but when you have only got half done, it seems pointless to upload it. As natty said, comp time is upon us again.
