B]TWO WEEK EOW/CHOW[/B]
For the next two weeks we're running a cross over with CHOW, featuring a brave naval hero in an epic sea battle.
You have three options with this contest:
a) Do a more illustrative piece and combine chow & eow and meet the requirements for both contests in one image (a battle on a quarter deck, for example)
I really liked learning about this topic and would love to continue making more images related to this theme. I wanted to create a dynamic environment and so I choose to show the bow of the ship with a neat figurehead rushing into the scene. Enjoy
Hey CHAOS I'm posting the work of FALKEDWARD, he's a friend of mine, he has posted his work on CHOW, but I think he has forgotten to post it here too (as he's new to the forum).
But I guess they won't be a problem if I upload it here for him, just don't put my name, it's his work ^^.
