@EdJr-  Aw, thanks!  Some day I'll upload something not cute 

Maybe after the voting is over I'll come back to this and fix some things/finish this.

How do you manage to make everything look so cute? *-*

I don't think it would make a lot of sense to make those crystals brighter; it's actually quite the opposite (the cave is too light). But it would make even less sense to use too dark colors in a piece like this.... So, it's pretty good as it is! Voted on you with my eyes closed.

@Zizka- Oh, but I did make the deadline!  I turned it in on time, it's just not as polished as I'd like.  And thanks!

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 5/30/2014 06:57

Too bad you missed the deadline, smells like victory to me.

tyrant (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 5/29/2014 16:53

@DragonMarx- Thanks!

@Daruda- Yeah, I like bright, soft colors which don't lend themselves to dark caverns very well.  Could have used a more appropriate palette 

Daruda (Level 4 Button Man) @ 5/29/2014 16:45

I like the scene and the mole is lovely.
It's only me or the cave is too light? D:

DragonMarx (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 5/29/2014 14:23

love the mole!

@ Suusi-  Thanks for the comment!  I was following the thread in the forums, which made me feel like this piece fit the criteria.  I thought of it as more of a geode cut in half than an architectural plan.  If they feel that it doesn't fit, the moderators are free to remove this from the challenge.

Suusi (Level 3 Nasturtium) @ 5/27/2014 10:14

i liked it, but... didn't need cross-section?

tyrant (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 5/26/2014 00:51

Thanks, guys!  The crystals are pretty dark, I was going to give them a pulsing glow as well as animate the mole, but I ran out of time

Also wish the crystals had more pop to them.  Great submission though, I kind of wish I had caught onto this challenge.  This one probably getting one of my three votes.

Nice work and nice animation, I think the crystals should be brighter, though you may have been running out of colours. :)
