    I didn't really want to do a space thingy so I just decided to go with some research facility on arctic (where I guess atmosphere is the thinnest?)

    It's ok, still not the turn-out I'd hoped, I took more time on this one though and tried to pace myself. I wanted to try and convey a floating storm observation facility. In any case, back to studying more environments.

    Ah, I dunno if this is going to be posted twice now, still have no idea what I'm doing haha.
    oh well, looks like I ran out of time to keep going on this thing, it was fun.

    For a back story; This was the moment when we ripped a hole right through the sky, moments before it was all torn asunder.

    scottlovesjeeps - Very cool work, scott. The clouds seem really unconventional in their design. I liked how complete every element of the environment is, which fits the criteria of this activity. This looks like a scene out of The Day After Tomorrow if it was filmed in the 70's. Cool work overall.

    MrSun - This entry is undercooked but the flavors are there. You put an interesting spin on the observation element of the topic with the structure and the figures in the foreground. I don't know what it's for yet though, the viewer is kind of left in the dark. Next time try to get a fully developed concept in if you have the time.

    stinkypanda - Slick and minimalist. I have no problem with a "less is more" approach and yours has an undeniable sci fi feel to it. This reminds me somewhat of how 'spyroteknik' on DeviantArt structures his backround structures. The clouds maybe need some touching up if you were going to push this more as a portfolio piece. Nice work.

    FelixB - That place is looking turbulent... not a place you want to wear flip flops. I don't know if you've ever played the James Bond Golden Eye game for Nintendo 64 but this piece reminded me of the snow level in Russia (or whatever cold region the level was based in) The use of the windy environment was very effective. One thing I might say can be improved on is the snow-flurry effect throughout the image. I think you could sharpen that aspect with a tutorial or some more experimentation.

    darlingGrim - I like the concept and the perspective. The skills and technique will come with time and experience. This almost looks like a storm troopers meets Sauron's playpen meets Aztec apocalypse...type of scene. Excuse me for my weirdness. Keep it up, darlin'

    111001010101011 - Really nice work. The winter feel is highly effective. I think in the Pastures of Valhalla activity you had a similar tower structure - you are a fan of pointy, spiral-like architectural designs. It can be your signature move but you also want to show some other weapons in your arsenal too. I like this one though, the scale and the terrain is spot on. I also dig the clothes the two people are wearing in front of the observation building. You got my vote.

    Monkabit - The concept is cool and outside of the box. I would've never been able to think of a hot air balloon as the form of observation. I was convinced that this was taking place at night time. The use of the balloon's lights was wise, and also the darkness of the sky in contrast to the bluish-beige tenacity of the cloud formations. As a suggestion, you could add some stars in the sky for a greater amount of detail.

    Natenks - Ahhh, geo-engineering as its worst... the emergence of another impending human science that's going to tip the balance of our earthen cosmos. If I glanced at this image quickly and indecisively, it would seem like a regular cityscape possibly located under the eye of a mild storm. I don't really notice the structure of the observatory until I take a better look at it. As a suggestion, maybe make the point of focus more pronounced. Good use of shadows and distance. Looks like it's going to get chaotic there...

    wilkerson - You've gotta hook these guys and girls up with a cloud design tutorial. Excellent work. I don't have anything to critique about it, except that maybe the panels on the observation craft looks a little too sleek and perfect, if you follow my drift. The presence of "rain on its sails" would make this unreal (as in a damn good addition) This is just me being imaginative. Cheers for an ace environment.

    My votes went to 111011101010 and wilkerson.

    Thanks guys.
