@Robyand - I like your suggestion about making the sky/clouds stormy, I just don't think I have time to do so before the deadline.

@others - I've made a black version. Lol, at this point, I think I'll just throw them all out there and leave it up to the Arrrtists. Maybe they won't like any of them, who knows?
Other than color, any other suggestions, just in case I find time to tweak some more?

How do you all make your lines so smooth and flowing? Mine are always messy.

I also use a mouse, but I use AI now (was Photoshop previously) to do most of my line work, then color in Photoshop. I also start with an image size 4x the final size which helps to smooth out any line work I do in Photoshop. I found it quite difficult to learn AI basics on my own, but since practicing a bit with it I've seen a huge difference in my drawings. Yay vectors! :)

Thank you. I saw there's a free trial for AI, but my computer's too old to run it.

How about Inkscape?
I don't think it's as easy to use as Illustrator is (but I've been using Illustrator since the dawn of time), but it does have that whole FREE thing going for it!
I did most of the color and line work for this entry with Inkscape.

YPPedia is currently down, therefore, the deadline for this contest will be extended until midnight game time on the 17th. If the issue persists past that date, we will consider other options.

I will announce any other changes as soon as we have more information. In the meantime, work on your entries and don't worry, but do keep an eye on this thread for new developments!
