Not to be nitpicky, but at the bottom of the challenge image it says "2 >Secon< prize:2 ballistic publishing books. Just wanted to point that out. As for the rest, I'd love to see what results will come from this challenge .

Regards, Erik

Sounds great! What's the final file type and preferred resolution?

I have a concept but not sure if it would be allowed. What if Atlantis was a city of futuristic technology? Ruined, of course, but what if my concept is a bit like futurism in ruins. Would that still count or am I SOL? I can adapt to needs... and I'd really like to do something like this. Mainly for the free books.

I've been considering trying my hand at matte painting, would be fun to do something a bit different.

I'm in.

hey guys I'm glad you;re excited with this project this will rock ! for sure

@sheppyboy2000 : yeah you can imagine all you want as long as it is based in real atlantis civilization , it could be a futuristic atlantis when all the ground is already underwater and the new city is the " new atlantis " just use your ideas to come up with something really cool the main idea I a big ruined or living city underwater based on the atlantis topic how do you imagine it? how do you picture it
just think of an idea this was a huge civilization like rome in the ancient times maybe it was an alien city thousands of years ago, try combining futuristic architecture with something familiar like other architecture based on the one we all know
hope this help
