"You can pick up your adventuring potion for only $2.99, (look at that handsome price tag!) don't go adventuring without it!"

Not 100% done and it may look a bit messy at some parts but I need to submit it if I want to meet the deadline :(.

I should also probably own up and list my inspiration/references

1: (the tree is very similar, maybe if I dither the leaves some more it won't look so similar?)



The preview was sorta rushed due to me wanting sleep :C, I'll try to maybe edit it later tomorrow or something.

A massive thanks to all the people over at Challenge Forum for helping me out!

Sidenote: So much dithering x_x . And curse you muxaun for picking such crazy colors! :P

EDIT 1: Made the bottle less lopsided on the left side but at a cost of it being symmetrical. Suggested by Dr D

I love everything about it, but the colors and reflections inside the glass walls are crazy good.

JackHB (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/11/2014 12:44

Reminds me of some sort of mage trapping an island in a bottle, or a god observing the world threw a magic bottle.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/8/2014 15:32

Thanks! I'm glad that this was able to inspire you ;)

Thrifting (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/12/2014 20:23

That water!! O___O *drools at the amazingness*

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/11/2014 09:33

Haha, don't sweat it ;P

Yeah, I tried to use the blue as much as possible but as you can see the two challenge colors aren't really dominant in this piece which is sort of a bad thing seeing as how the challenge was to incorporate those as main colors.

Thanks though! It's always awesome to see a comment from you!

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 3/11/2014 08:46

Totally missed it...  shame on me.

Terrific job on the glass! It's incredible how you used that highly saturated blue as a shadow colour. Awesome dithering too..

Great piece!

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/10/2014 18:18

Thanks! You did a top notch job with your piece too!


Thanks dood!

You totally deserve your price ! :)

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/6/2014 16:33

Thank you very, very, very much! That's a wonderful thing to hear! I think you've given me a lot of motivation! Thanks man!

crozier (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/6/2014 11:31

Wow, you certainly are improving! Your last few pieces have been really aethetically pleasing. But aesthetics aren't the only thing in a piece- creativiy, perspective, and experimentation should all be taken into account. I'm also glad you're doing weeklies- keep at it and good luck. You got potential, kid ;)

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/5/2014 20:31

Thanks man. The more votes the better!

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 3/5/2014 08:22

Oh yeah, you're right! That piece of his is crazy good!

Motrox (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/3/2014 05:05

Looks great! Reminds me of Pel's piece with the jar hah.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/3/2014 03:48

Thanks so much man!

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/3/2014 03:47

That's wierd, the bottle is actually symmetrical, I think that it may be the light that's making the left side look rounder. I'll fiddle around with the smoke and if I can't make it look nicer I'll maybe just remove it. That's a really strange problem with the bottle looking uneven though.

Thanks for the feedback though, extremely valuable!

|||| (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 3/2/2014 23:07

Definitely voting for!

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/2/2014 22:40

The other version is better. The shape of the bottle doesn't look symmetrical. (Intended?) Also not sure how I like the smoke coming out of the top. Either remove it or give it some more space to breathe, IMO.

With that said, this is very nice. Good idea, and good execution. Tremendous improvements.
