So I never finished the previous challenge but will try my hand in this one. I hope to finish and at least submit a final entry. So to the story.

The backdrop is a space station on a small planet. Our Hero is a Swedish cargo pilot and has landed to do some trading along with his Chimp co pilot.
In a bar he is engaged in a game with an alien. The game is some form of Chess and naturally the human wins! So this is where the situation in Uplift comes to play, the human race has a bum rap and thought to be liars and cheaters by some aliens. This alien is one of them and he is convinced the human is cheating. Well the image should speak for it self, and weather the Alien is right or wrong is up to you!

Hope you like it!

Oh and I will be working in 3D!

Nice idea! Current composition's a bit tight, I would like to see more of the bar when you make it ^^. Hope you can finish it!

This is a good idea and will look great in 3d
I like the way the chimp is facing away from the game, he looks like he's unaware or just not concerned with whats happening behind him

:thumbsup: good luck

Hey Guys!

Thanks for the feed back! Yeah I really need to finish this one!

Pegahoul - The composition is tight on purpose, modeling more than four characters is to much and the environment is limited to the room they play in and just apart of the outer hall to save time! I'm trying to keep it simple.

DyingArt - Yeah the chimp do look clueless! I was going to make him give us a grin.. as if to say: Yeah it happens every time!

Thanks for taking you time to visit!:) I will be back shortly with updates!

So, been trying to post for a few times now! Wonder why my post won't go through?

Here is the Game Table! Still have a few problems with the texture and I also want to add some cabels! Or something...

Going for a rugged look, inspired by the chess table in "Star Wars" and the game table in Bond "Never say never again".

Thats it for now!

Love the explosion when the games over. Cool concept all around.
