Haven't tried drawing anything in Fireworks for a while, but I decided to give it a shot anyway.  :) I've already dithered and converted the NDS/GBA versions to the right colour format.

PSP:


NDS (top screen):


NDS (bottom screen):


NDS (single screen):


GBA:


EDIT: I can easily change the grass, if you don't like the colour ;)

what is the best format for the pictures and what color profile does each need.

P. S. I don't have a website that I can post my pics on. Thus I have attached them as .zip files. Is there any other way to post images besides using a url?

M. Lucanius: Generally people host pictures elsewhere, like tinypic.com and you link them here as image tags.

Also, a note on my entry to this contest. The tree on the hill above the creek? It's a digital painting I did with my wacom tablet. A lot of effort went into it.

I know. I just don't and have never used photobucket, tinypic, etc.. I was asking if there was no other way.

btw what graphics manipulator did you use to make your entry, it looks pretty neat.

I used Gimp. It's an open source program similar to Photoshop. I also used a wacom tablet. I took some stock photographs I have and I used them as a model and I painted the scene on my computer. Then I applied a neat texture to it to make it look like canvas. Finally, I selected a nice font and used it. I think it turned out really well and I'm hoping for first place, obviously, but I'll settle for second place :D

Very nice. Simply the fact that you went to the effort to actually digitally paint something defininately deserves 1st or 2nd place  ;)

@Everyone else: Thanks for the great comments!  ::sm-29.gif:: I used to draw stages for SSB Rumble, but I guess that's not a good thing    ^-^

I guess my question got buried... What format is best for each platform.
For instance, I already know that the NDS requires 256 colors in png,
bmp, or gif, indexed or not (well gif is always indexed I guess). Further-
more, monochromatic images are best reduced to 33 colors.

What about GBA and PSP?
