Your link seems to be down.

Tried the link on two different machines here and it worked fine on both.

Hm, it won't show within the thread. I "viewed source" on the page and found the url to the image. I put that in the address field and it viewed just fine. I have no idea.

Well anyway, thats an intense image. Very cool. You're going to have your work cut out for you! :thumbsup:

edit : Never mind... seems to be working fine now!

You need to open the image once, and thenit will show up on the page here, because it's cached.

I like the picture, but I would tone down the "built" aspect of it. read through the compo again....

Tephlon> My thought was tha since you see no bodies about, the landscape seems deserted, but after yor comment, I guess that that was apparent only in my mind.
Maybe, as you said, tone down the constructed . Perhaps if the place appeared more as a ruin?

The location seems unpopulated, but not necessarily abandoned or neglected, nor rusting or decaying, but life forms are inexistent.

The judges may rule that ruins constitute neglect.

zbgump> True...So... I think it might fit the description of , "seems unpopulated" by the fact that no life forms are visible .

Hm, good point. I read through the instructions and I think your image would be fine; if the structures are in ruins. That would lend to the fact that the viewer should "...feel that something was created here"

why don't you just give a link so I don't have to mess around with the raw html stuff.

Concept sketch. Done on a wacom in PS6 to be modeled in 3DSMAX.
I painted this image awhile ago, since then I've been wanting to explore it in 3D...
So here goes.

Hi BC1967,

First off let me say that I love your "mines" painting. that is really nice. :thumbsup: I think it would look awesome in 3D.

One little problem though: I'm pretty sure that the rules for this challenge state that all work for this challenge has to be original, made for the challenge. i don't know if it would be kosher to use an image that you have made before.

That said, i still think it's a goregous pic.

I think that the definition of an original image is, one that has yet to used for a paticular purpose.
So in that case even though the image was done at an eariler time, it had no real purpose. Now I'm using it as a concept for a 3D image.
