Welcome to the Third Community Tile Project, the Community Tile Project of Spring 2011!

So what is it exactly? Well, it's like the Community Tile Projects of Autumn 2010 and Winter 2010 with a new theme and tile.

You, the user, are given a "tile" to fill in relating to the current theme of the Project. The theme for this Project is Aliens. Accepted tiles will be added to the image at the bottom of this post. The Project will end when no more tiles can be placed or at the end of April, whichever comes first. Hopefully we can get as many entries as possible.

This season's tile is a new shape.

There are several things to keep in mind when making your tiles:

-Entries must fit within the tiles. Smaller entries will need filler to be up to size requirements.
-Entries are limited to three per user maximum.
-Entries will be accepted as they are and may be submitted individually or simultaneously.
-Entries must relate to the theme. If it isn't immediately obvious, explanation may be necessary.
-Entries must be completely original.
-Entries must be submitted before April 1st.

Get your entries in before April 1st and we'll see how this turns out. Feel free to post any questions or comments you have about the Project in this thread.

Mine's an alien abducting a guy. Real simple, especially since it was done via MS paint...

For some reason it became really crappy quality once I uploaded it to Imageshack.

The dimensions might be off some. I can redo it if needed.

@silvermoon123
If you upload a BMP, chances are it will be converted to JPEG, which will degrade the quality. It's best to convert it to GIF or PNG before uploading.

@SheWhoMustNotBeNamed
You're going to have to redo it. I need a sharp boundary the same size as the original tile to tesselate these.

A more figurative image than most, reflecting the alien origins of California, the Golden State: aliens from across the Pacific, aliens of Manifest Destiny, and aliens of mercantilism.

Here's my second one. Making this sure beat preparing for the National Latin Exam.

Added the two most recent. The turnout for this one isn't all that great.

I don't know if the size is okay. If it isn't, it's my bad. Sorry.
First image uploaded. Ever.
