    Okay guys, sorry If I was vague! Here's what I mean by solstice.

    Solstice refers to the longest and shortest days of the year respectively. The Summer solstice in the northern hemisphere is when the sun is highest in the sky (most towards the north), and thus the longest day of the year. The winter solstice in the northern hemisphere is when the sun is the lowest in the sky (most towards the south) and is thus the shortest day of the year.

    Please don't get confused by the zodiac, that isn't what was meant. The solstice stands on it's own, though it was often used with the zodiac, which are made up of the constellations that the sun moves through. The reason they are linked is because they'll note which sign the sun is in for each solstice, not that they really have anything to do with eachother!

    Alright. Sounds cool, but I want to make sure that I get the topic right.
    This is a temple that is dedicated to the two solstices, that focuses on the light those events produce.
    So does the temple have to be influenced by winter and summer, or just light in general?

    matt Paquin's solctise temple

    Throwing my hat in the ring here. C+C always welcome.

    This took me about an hour tonight. Still trying to figure out the burning situation on the right. I avoid adding people like its the plague, but it would be cool to have a gathering around a fire for the celebration.

    okay, haven't had a go at one of these in a while so i thought i should get back into the swing of things. Spent a couple of hours on this so far, should get it finished in time amongst all the other work i have. Some really nice work so far...... cant wait to see how they progress!

    @Arthur 'Two Sheds'
    Are you certain that such a stream of light is possible, considering that the light is coming from pretty much everywhere?

    Smile Chinese mountain temple

    Great entry's so far guys!

    I see that the concept of the sun is taken very random, and this is good. Because I got no clue how to take on the sun/light part.

    I got 2 versions, one normal without sun concept. 1 with the sun-celled-glass-energy-shields :p

    Very crappy and I got a huge doubt about it

    Please crit if you got some
