    Excellent theme! =D

    Can't wait to see the submissions. Sadly, too lazy myself. Or else I would have made R'lyeh. That counts for fictional! Or so you may want to believe, bwuahahaha!

    Anyhow, good luck to the contestants, I hope your works will be mindblowing!

    so, is it important to create an epic building, or it can be maybe a regular warcraft model when greatly fitting in the hardly created scene?

    You could make it. But what will get higher votes, a terrain with a well-made building and surroundings, or a terrain with good surroundings and a regular model for a wonder?

    Thanks for approving, Pyritie.

    (copy from the submission thread)

    ] [highlight]Issuing this clearly right now as I fear I may have been vague on this particular aspect[/highlight] [
    The theme is to portray a scenery in which a fictional world wonder is demonstrated (preferably highlighted).
    There are no restrictions on how this scenery or structure is to be portrayed, the only restriction is that it has to include a structure of extraordinary engineering and/or aestethic feats.

    [highlight]The structure has to be architectural, not a feat of nature[/highlight].

    Put differently, you are free to portray the theme however you so please as long as it doesn't violate the rules. Naturally, a designed or constructed structure will score higher on detail, technique and creativity. So even though the rules doesn't dictate that you should construct one, it sort of is implied.
    I also urge people to work out their own concept and not bluntly copy concept art or any other related artforms under the same category.
    If you want to portray a structure of mythical significence, say Atlantis for instance, I urge you to demonstrate your own interpretation.

    You are obviously not obligated to conform, but I think it would make this whole experience more worthwile.

    I will try my best to get an entry in for this. (hopefully something better than my last submission). However I've beem pretty busy lately, so we'll see. If I can't then I will judge.

    I hope that I can get my internet working so that I can post some wips. I can only send this message because my phone has internet.

    QUESTION: Is the building external or internal?

    *External* in case you're refering to exterior/interior. If you're refering to whether the structure is to be portrayed in an open enviroment or a closed space, that's completely optional.

    Implies that you are indeed allowed to base your map off UTM. You are also allowed to import whatever resources you seem fit, provided you include a link and proper credits if they aren't from hiveworkshop or wc3 campaigns.
