That grey stuff is quartz, and I myself quite like it.
Also, do you mean that you approve having four colours in the pack.png, or not?
No, I don't approve. At least not from a rules standpoint. It would technically disqualify you. However, I will ignore it since it's a very minor part of the pack, and will strongly encourage the other judges to as well. Honestly DQing someone over their pack icon is bad form... even if it is technically correct to do so.
I'd love it of the other judges chimed in on this issue.
I rather like dithering in retro-themed stuff, but I feel like the quarts needs a third lighter shade. Would help the column look more round and the whole thing more bright quartzy and less dull stony.

I'm almost 100% positive that this have been suggested before but i'll suggest it again anyways
JUST A REMINDER: There's less than a week left of this contest. For an entry, you must post a downloadable pack and a minimum of three snapshots in this thread on or before January 31st. (Some leeway may be given to account for timezones)
Don't worry if you don't have a lot done. As stated in the OP, you will be judged based on what you've completed. While a more complete pack is more likely to impress the judges, a high-quality pack with very little done still has a strong chance of winning. Don't be afraid to submit your work in progress as an entry!
I only have like, 16 textures. Among changing computers, becoming interested in my year-long WIP pack, and starting to work 40 hour weeks (at a fast food place for minimum wage, I might add. :/ ) I haven't really had time to make progress on it. But I think I'll keep working on it, or somewhat edit it to work with some other palette/idea. I don't think it's really 'enough' to even post in a contest with no minimum.
With a scant two entries, this contest comes to a close. Right now the judges are writing their critiques and rating the entries. We'll be announcing the winner hopefully within the next few days.
Thanks to everyone who submitted entries, and also to everyone who participated in any way. Whether it was submitting work in progress textures, or just commenting on other people's screenshots and progress. While this contest has come to a somewhat disappointing conclusion with the lack of entries, I still appreciate all of the support this community has shown. Thank you all so much!
