Hi all, anyone fancy a quick victory ;)

Seriously though, anyone up for the following?:

400x400px, reasonable file size (56k modem here...), 48 hour loose turnaround on volleys, must use 2 elements of the previous volley, and you have to let me win :D because it's my first battle!

I'll post a serve as soon as anyone is interested.

I'm not sure if I can let you win though :D

curses...

Oh well, I'll have a serve ready for you soon - just been on a night out and I'm in no fit state to prepare now - it'll be ready in the morning (UK time)

It's hard to work in 400x400 :D

yep! :)

Still - only 1 week till I get PS - Fireworks is ok, but it can be tricky to get it looking right...

I'll have a volley soon.

Nice twist - BTW apologies for the jack'o lantern sloppiness, I meant to incorporate it as an alpha effect, but forgot ;)

I've got a nice idea for the return - then we finish on your volley?

400 x 400 is a nice challenge, but my brain hurts :mrpimp:

I had wondered why he was so fond of the moth :confused:

Have you ever tried to put a twist on the concept of a moth?

:mrpimp:

I'm not sure I take enough drugs for that!

because webmonkey used the japanese iconographs, I was moving down that line of thought, but to be honest, whilst I thought the quality of work improved, I didn't do a strong enough serve for good concepts to be explored - still it is my first battle :D

Plus I just liked it! :smoov:

Cheers vital - keep up the commentary!


Nice return webmonkey, I also really enjoyed the battle - I'll take you up on your offer for a return soon - the Arena competition beckons :)
