    Yeah... that 'talent?' thread just irritated the crap outta me, I guess.

    Thanks for the Rep. I have to agree with everything atpollard said.

    Thanks for the Rep.
    I am delighted that my tower at least momentarily has the lead ...
    ... but I voted for your caverns because I genuinely believe that they should win. My tower and Bogies tower are good, and have a lot of potential, but they are not finished works (both could use some shadows and color balance adjustments for a start).

    One lesson that I learned from this challenge was the benefit of starting and posting a fairly complete (even if rough) design early on, so that you can get feedback and adjust it based on that feedback. Your first sketch was OK, but just OK - yet each iteration further refined your work into more of a 'finished' product. The end result is breathtaking - my favorite part is the red glow on the walls from the glowing stream of lava.

    Hey Jax! In regards to your post in the challenge voting thread, about why your map wasn't getting more votes, here's my opinion (Posting here because I didn't want to hi-jack that thread) The art is top-notch, but the reason why I didn't vote for it is because it's difficult to tell what relation the inserts have to the map. I understand that they're images of the important locations on the map, but what I'm not really sure of is where exactly those locations are on the map. Whether that means doubling up the labels (one of the location and one for the insert), or adding lines connecting the insert to the location, that lack of connection makes it feel as though the map is incomplete. Hope you find my thoughts helpful
