My compo for the challenge.
Could be better and more achieved but I was tired to work on this one...
For those who didn't understand, those are high towers passing through seen from a cliff.

Inspiration : shadow of the colossus + the legend of zelda : twilight princess...

I personally love the rocks, I dunno what everyone else is babbling about. The fact that they look unfinished make them look all the better. <3

Very cool if not empty.

Did not commented that one but I have to say I like a lot, simple but with a great atmosphere.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/2/2008 13:27
The rocks, as stated before, are great, but the rest needs touch-ups. Congrats on being one of the only three to enter the challenge, man. Hehe

Bloo (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 8/31/2008 03:44
I think it's a great piece. Makes me wanna vote fer it >_>

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 8/30/2008 14:11
Don't delete it >_>

Just wait until the challenge is over, then rework it...
The cliff is great as well as your colour choices. It's just that you've set a high standard for yourself now...and this isn't really living up to it. We're all fans of tough love here at PJ - we're horrible because we care. :P

...also, if no one else submits anything for the challenge you still get a coloured ribbon with a number on it! :3

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 8/30/2008 14:02
STOOOP :,( you make me wanna delete it...I seriously plan to...

seeing your early wip stages in the challenge thread i expected another pic to fave, something really epic. seeing the 'final' i'm a bit disappointed of how it turned out.

foreground is awesome, everything else looks rushed (even the castle). sadly. also, something seems to be wrong perspectivity-wise with the bottom of the big cliff.

big canvas kills challenge mood.

What i shame that ur not going to continue on it.

Stratto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/28/2008 20:53
i really think you should put in some more clouds in the middle. but other than that, its pretty much awesome!

Adam (Level 9 Human) @ 8/28/2008 17:23
Though it's a quite great piece at is is now I think this has a lot of more potential. Looks a bit unfinished. I like the rendering of rocks (reminds m a bit of buloght) and the concept is nice too.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 8/28/2008 12:53
The cliff edge and the bird are aawesome. Towers and clouds are a bit meh for me though... :(
I suggest you revisit this or do something similar another time when you're not limited by time. :) Make some seriously amazing landscape from the cliff.

{ I understand you...

   I think the same about my own
   (But in the MS Paint window... XD)

   Anyway, I love your work! ^^
   Good luck Frost!

BlazeAce (Level 6 Commander) @ 8/28/2008 12:09
Same here for my work but I want to finish it in a best possible way even though I'm starting to hate seeing it on my MSPaint day after day, hour after hour with minimal changes.

I hope you can stand editing it at Saturday or Sunday :DDD I won't force you to do it but I'd like to see it.

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 8/28/2008 12:05
Sorry, I worked on it all day since the challenge started, I can't see it in a photoshop window once more...

BlazeAce (Level 6 Commander) @ 8/28/2008 12:03
Aww it needs still more :S Some fog on the background would quite easily do the thing for it. I really like it but it need bit more.

I hope you'll update it later on at least a bit ;)
