    oh you are changing the castle in the water??, well is good to be open to changes, I did added many things only to remove them later.
    but I feel is my duty to warn you tha the ship may not count as water structure (in the poll there was a ships/docks theme to vote).

    water structures, by definition a structure is something pretty much fixed to the ground. I hope you can add some kind of docks or even a cheap wooden tower in the water should fit the theme. (hope to help)

    looks nice , good luck


    yeah, good point, I cant do it, only can request it to be put (done the request).

    I didn't know that you created a poll.

    Hm, I'm not sure I've got technical know-how to pull off my idea and I hardly have time, but I gotta push myself to be better.
    Sign me up, I'll do my best but no promises =)

    Don't worry, the noobie of Leods will make you not look bad (in comparison, and at all, I am horrible).

    Ohhh ... You'll make me blush ... (joke)
    Returning to seriousness. Of course I'm flattered, but ... do you really think that wall of destroyed ice looks like a wall of destroyed ice? That the sky looks like it would be on Jupiter's moon? Or that that structure is realistic? Or that my water management is enough to (if this were possible) not be pre-eliminated for uselessness in the contest? No. I'm definitely a newbie. Well, I'll count down, and keep calm.

    I already think your entry is a nice one, and that can beat mine.
    The concept you want to show is very clear.

    "do you really think that wall of destroyed ice looks like a wall of destroyed ice?"

    yes

    "That the sky looks like it would be on Jupiter's moon?"

    yes

    "Or that that structure is realistic?"

    spacecraft theme, yes

    "Or that my water management is enough"

    yes, nice water manage


    "to (if this were possible) not be pre-eliminated for uselessness in the contest?"

    you are very usefull to this contest, (sometimes you have to beg users to join your contest)

    You clearly have skill,

    I would consider the water creature concept, maybe change the angle or something,
    sometimes something requires times and test to work (my first ship was crap)


    I think this contest is 50% skill and 50% time invest,

    The situation is obvious. We both underestimate ourselves, so we will never agree (I think yours is better, and vice versa) So this is something useless
    even if I agreed with the rest (which I'm not, but, as I said, we will not get anywhere) I definitely have to refute this. Literally the only thing I did was locate the water level, add some random marine life, and ... And just that. Besides, as you mentioned, that great obstacle of the mythological creature.
    With just 6 days of practice? There's no any art that can be learned in just one week.

    Closing all, you are clearly better than I. Your managing of the sky and background is very realistic, much more than mine. But we will never agree. About the 50% 50%, obviously, like in all the art, just because so much of one can umbalance all.

    This is a really cool theme. I'm interested in seeing what y'all come up with. WIPs are looking great so far. :)

    I'm curious, are fully underwater structures \ scenes allowed?

    good question, since by definition the structure must be in the water, but from that there is all freedom

    a structure under water is a water structure, so is allowed,
    (the frontpage says it can be in the sea)

    now is hard to pull a pure underwater enviroment, it would be interesting if someone does such bold attempt.

    by the way are you interested in participate??


    Your managing of the sky and background is very realistic

    sky was just fogged sky, gray fog, and 1 cloud doodads with 50 rpg of the 3 colors (to reduce shinying), that wasnt to much work.

    background, I just improvised with the naboo buildings, change the size a bit, if you see all my 10 wips you will see I improvise all the time (is not that I know what I am doing all the time), put something, remove it, put other thing,

    Hey guys. I noticed that some of you are using hidden tags to show your works. While it is great showing what you're working on, please do consider using the /Upload a File(without using the hidden tags) feature of the site instead of using the hidden tags. They stretch the page way too much while browsing around.

    Thank you and keep doing the magical stuff around :]
