Interesting start, I like the perspective as you can show things under water.
I would love to participate in this challenge as well, but the rules state I can't
I am very inexperienced, but I thought I would give this a shot. I am a little sad that there is only 1 other person in this month's challenge, so far. Please join up!

Oh, now this sounds interesting. I'm intrigued to see how this goes. A different approach is sometimes a good thing.
When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.
Not sure if I'm heading in the right direction. I have a lot more to do obviously before I finish. I wanted to get some advice. Please critique:

I love where this is going. And having a very different style of map than what's expected won't hurt your chances at all - check mine in the regular competition, I wasn't expecting to get ANY votes
In terms of critique, I would suggest toning down the black edges, maybe a slightly darker tone than the water itself, I find the lines to be a bit harsh and distracting as they are. Definitely need something for the edges like that though.

Looks good and looks fun.

Looking great! And I'd second what Coyotemax said too.
I think it has come a long way. Please critique, if needed. Maybe I am done
