    That would pretty much ruin any sense to the word fictional, so no.
    I actually saw that conversation, that's why I told him he should pitch me another W.I.P so I can properly judge wheter it's appropriate or not.
    - But thanks for the head's up.

    @Zesko, that's really good! However, the waterfall looks kindof weird. I'd suggest making it go all around

    Would suggest a different angle altogether, that looks more like gameplay than art. You'd be lacking in certain asepcts, for instance lighting, background detail etc.

    i know it lacks a lot of things, thats why is a wip lol
    but i'd like to know if it is appropiate or not for this contest, given this is inspired by the gardens of babylon. :s

    Inspiration is no crime, as long as you don't make it extremely blatant.

    Would it be possible to use one of the statues as the fictional structure?
    I'm leaning towards the Sword/Knight one.

    well, i have one idea, but i need answers to some questions.

    my idea is create a floating mountain, with a city on it

    so, on the surface of the mountain i will make a castle, walls, towers, mixing with the rocks of the mountain. INSIDE the mountain, i'm planning to create a city. in other words, the terrain will be divided in the mountain floating in the skies ,and the underground city .

    my question is, the whole terrain will be judged or just the mountain and the castle? we are suposed to create just a concept or we can explore the concept and create something "solid"?

    You can only submit one entry, so if you can fit all that into one screenshot then be my guest.
    - Of course you could always complete the concept, choose one entry to submit and upload the others separately.
    Nothing in there violating the rules as far as I can tell - Proceed unmolested :p

    hmm, so the final submission it's a screenshot of the terrain ?
    i thought it was the whole map.
    makes the things easier and harder at the same time :D
    ok, i will see what i can do.
