Entry to the challenge. Sadly I didn't had the time for the city so it's extremely rushed, but I wanted to meet the deadline. Maybe I'll come back to it in the future.

This is such a great idea!!

The contrast between the fine detail of the city and the lack thereof in the rest of the image really works here.  The distortion of the face through the glass is also a nice touch.

Thanks everybody for the kind words!

@Monkey'o Doom: Right, antialiasing was added really quick, thus I missed some parts. I applied the already used colors for AA thats why the colors aren't really intermediates.

@NiceIdion: I see what you mean. You're probably right, but the area for the city is really small this way too, i wanted to use as many space I could.

@Rynen10K: It's water with bubbles. Or the bubbles are generated by the city. Or they are just small escape bubbles because the city is on fire. Probably the letter.

well, my entry could be creative, but this one kick its ass. i'm voting this one for great justice. not to mention, as ikke said below, its a great interpretation of the 'underwater' theme.

to be honest, in some point, i had the same idea =P

Omenith (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/30/2007 19:10
Very refreshing .

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 7/30/2007 14:22
as seen in south park AND the simpsons, still great tho :)

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/30/2007 05:24
Tops! Very creative indeed!

NiceIdiot (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/30/2007 05:00
Love it.  I have a crit however.  The buildings look to be too close to the outside edge of the glass, as does the surface area of the water. It makes the glass appear to have no thickness. The biggest offender is the small blue building on the lower right edge.

The fingerprint is a genius touch.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/30/2007 01:52
Again a very creative and original take on the subject. Love it!

Framin (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/29/2007 20:06
Bwa-ha-ha :D

Monkey 'o Doom (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/29/2007 18:07
This piece is great, but I think it would do better if the antialiasing was more consistent and the colors used for aa were a bit more intermediate than they are now. But the inspiration and idea you have here is brilliant, and aside from the antialiasing, it's technically perfect. Keep up the good work.

You've definitely got my vote.

The only thing that looks strange to me is the amount of bubbles in there; makes it look like its boiling, but by the looks of the sky, it could just be a very hot day :)

Xion Night (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/29/2007 13:40
this is awesome. Win

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 7/29/2007 13:35
Great idea! The part of the boy in the glass is great work!!

soda (Level 10 President) @ 7/29/2007 13:27

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 7/29/2007 13:22

one of the most original pieces I've ever seen :)

I'm voting, no doubt

fishmeester (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 7/29/2007 12:50
Awesome-est idea.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/29/2007 07:58

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/29/2007 07:05
