    These ent's were specially engineered in these pottern objects to levitate above the ground making them safe from those mean old lumberjacks. They also were made to make Ents migrate and move far faster. It is believed some ent's now have floating forests high above the clouds.

    Why walk? Let these things drive through the forest!
    This ent is the oldest one of the forest and is unable to walk. So the people who live in these trees build some kind of machine to move the ent to other parts of the forest.

    "After the last battle opposing the Orcs and the Ents, not one of these Tree-men survived.
    Since then forest disapeared worldwide, no one was left to take care of the trees.
    Some orcs tried to revive the ents to train them as battle-machines.
    Most tries where unsuccessfull, but some mortals tell stories about strange Engineered Ents walking in the desert in search of water..."

    It's the last remaining Ent in it's known realm. In order to keep the species alive the Ent has been retrofitted with special engineered limbs and inner workings. The hope is that the future will provide new technologies to clone and re-establish the Ent back to the natural balance.

    Couple of notes on this round:

    Overall some cool entries this round. however, several didn't make it to the poll:

    Legato: Still a WIP

    D-Holme: Although the idea and presentation of it were okay, I think you can do much better than that It looked a bit rushed.

    Trashy i like the rendering, but the concepts it self looks more like a tree in a pot, nice ones but not enough engineered limbs
    Joey-B very cool, but to much of a sketch, facial is great
    MarkDN nice start, would have liked to see a more final version
    Epias you got my vote, first because of the colors, love them but also because of that "wheel chair" idea for the eldest, liked the image
    renren I think the color harmony is of, i did nt like the streched texture on the ground and mostly in think theres a problem with scaling, one way to show the grand stature of the ent would have been to make the sign about a lot smaller then it is, but the mechanics also represent something that is tractor size whem it should have been building size
    paulypaul nice image but it juste did nt apeal to me, maybe not enough vegetation i think
    dabble nice entry, cant really say why it did nt get my vote, probably a kind of cerebral heads or tails between you and epias

    the very few who participated prooved how hard it was this one.

    when people stop critiquing its because they stopped caring

    Argh, I'm really sorry about submitting that, guys, it was only supposed to be a thumbnail. I hardly worked it out at all! I started close to the deadline and then was out of the house most of the time after that.

    I already crited half of these in the WIP thread, but the ones I didnt;

    Trashy, that looks gorgeous but to me it's more like a bonzi in a fancy pot rather than anything engineered.

    Renren; very grungy idea, looks cool although I would have liked to see more designs on that specific theme.

    Paulypaul; Very cool, although it feels half magical, like a true ent with bionic implants, rather than an entirely engineered ent It'd be great to see a more worked up version.

    Dabble – this is definitely awsome although again, it's more like a magic ent with bioic implants than an engineered ent.

    I think Epias's piece fits the theme most suitably, and it's nicely painted but honestly, I think we all could do a lot better, so I don't really feel like voting this time round.
