    First time I'm participating in this section, but I will sure do it again. Had so much fun with this challenge
    My concept is pretty simple: The hurricane of sand and dust hunting some lokal hunters, who desperately try to run for shelter.

    Critique are highly welcome!

    I tried to keep in mind above all else that this was an environment without getting too carried away with the story.

    A unexpected sandstorm occured during the balloon race people was forced to head back to the city to be protected from the vicious storm. Anyone who is caught in the eye of the storm will experience disorientation, severe injuries, or in rare cases death.

    194 - Escaping the sandstorm

    Approach For my interpretation of this topic I decided that I wanted to show pure enviroment without any living thing for comparsion of
    size (also because this bares tendency to end up with an illustration). So my challenge was to somehow still provoke a sence of scale
    and overpowering size.
    In turn this pondering (as a non-digitalist I only get one shot ha!) meant the final sketch's traveller and mount were dumped, format
    changed to a very narrow window. Small patches of blue (top right) are reminiscent of sky and act as frame. A dark cloud causes the
    viewer's eye to wander back and forth to the top, like one would trying to outrun a storm.
    Art description In a desert of no distinct location a vast sandstorm is approaching. Chasing grains of sand over dunes. It's forefront
    swallows some dark clouds that belong to the thunderstorm which created it. And while it exhibits beauty the danger of it's destructive
    power cannot be denied.

    Oops, first in and almost forgot about the final. Some small texture touchups here and there but that's it.

    Really wanted to tweak this more, but I dont wanna miss the poll.

    Sandstorms are frequent in Ridge City, and most people escape the harsh winds by spending their time indoors pursuing digital pastttimes.
