    But! About a day and a half work on this:

    Note: I took a screenshot of it instead of the real thing.. The real one is too big.
    If you want a thumbnail, just follow jtougas' instructions.

    For now though, this is looking really nice.

    Also, the thumbnail scraper will only pick up images on the site. If the images are hosted elsewhere you most likely won't be in the running. And that would be a shame.....this is lookin' FIIINE

    Do not forget to put the ***Latest WIP*** just before the thumbnail so that the scraper can pick the right one.

    Don't give up. The challenges are more than anything else about learning and growing. Keep at it.

    Yeah, no doubt. If I had quit I'd have never got where I am. Number 1 is transient...someone will come along and knock you off. Like next month when we have a new challenge. It's about learning new tricks and experimenting with new ideas and making yourself better than you were yesterday. If you're next map comes out better than this one then that's a win in my book. I'm never going to knock off Torstan, The Red Epic, Aerius, Chris West, and those guys with gray names here and the other dudes that actually get paid beaucoup bucks by the game companies but that doesn't stop me from trying to learn new things and get better. The old sports coach thing - "the only way to guarantee a loss to quit but if you keep trying you've always got a chance". The old "2nd place is just 1st loser" only exists in hyper-competitive dudes with needles in their butts and 'roid rage.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Very nice looking so far, and cool idea for the big white arrow.

    I will suggest to you (and others reading this) that the best method I've come across for posting images is http://gyazo.com/en
    You grab whatever portion of your screen, it uploads instantly, and you just copy/paste the URL. Free small app to install.

    It's all I use.

    Why would you drop out? Your entry is one of the better ones this month, IMO.
