* RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
* They can be done on any medium.
* If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
* Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing, unless is it an integral part of the challenge.

* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.

Hi Roberto,

I guess it's a bit confusing for possible newcomers to read that thing about the months below the "tetris" task:wise:... unless I am missing something here:eek:

PS ~1h15

djtrousdale : Great pixel art
Overchord : hehe, hopefully not all bugs are like that or computers would be really scary to deal with (or scarier at least)

Was looking forward to getting home and doing this one all day.
I remember spending all night with the lights off playing Tetris on my Nintendo till the sun came up. Never blinking. You didn't have time to blink, and those colors, painful.
Ahh the good old days.

Photoshop wacom 1.5 hours (Used reference for tetris screen and eyes)
Thought I'd actually put my new Wacom to use instead of just Artrage at work with a mouse

aelwine - Amazing, I hate posting after you. But I know it's not a contest..... VOTE ZYRINX SOTW! jk
Overchord - quick fact, preying mantis is the most successful hunter out of all predators (kills vs attempts) and great at TetrisĐ
djtrousdale - Rock out that MS Paint Yeah!

funny how the tiny little askew pieces in djtrousdale's pic led me to this idea.

PS, wacom, ~1 hour.

Haha, thanks for your comments guys :D
Lightbringer - That reminds me of a 3d render I made (which is hiding somewhere, can't find it) It had Hex in a similar situation...
Glad I could be an inspiration :D

djtrousdale: Great concept - you see far too little MS Paint work in here :)

aelwine: Great idea and great execution! (And no I don't hope all bugs are like this either. But the original term for a bug in the computer was litteral as it was insects crawling in and shortcutting the transistors)

Zyrinx: Very cool effect of the reflection. I think it works really well, perhaps the blood was a little overkill (sorry for the pun, and thank you for that interesting fact :lightbulb - Note to oneself - never play tetris against a praying mantis :D )

Lightbringer: Cool effect and concept - but terrible Tetris with the way you litter the blocks about you'll be game over in no time :D

Vitriolic: Ah I always wondered where the blocks came from :thumbsup: Great sketch!

InesD: Seen that screen more times that in cared to ;) Are you still keeping to posting every day?

aelwine - WOW - great job!

Vitriolic - really nice, me likey! :wavey:

good work everyone, keep it up!

I remember when I first started playing tetris, I was really addicted to it. When I
would go to sleep I would dream of those colorful falling blocks - that's when I
knew it was time to....STEP AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER!!
