Hi Everyone,

Here is the second challenge, titled 'Ancient Future Mash-up'. Following is the task:

The Task : Create a landscape of a city where antiquity coexists with modernity. There are many examples of this now in the world but push it to the extreme. Example : a quaint fishing village meets Dubai's explosion of high rises. The more ancient and the more future, the better.

The Rules:

1. Each contestant must create a Work In Progress (WIP) Thread/Topic in this forum, in order to participate in the contest.
2. The Subject of the WIP Thread/Topic must be like this : Ancient Future Mash-up - (your name); for example, if your name is Tim Guo then, you must write, Ancient Future Mash-up - Tim Guo.
3. The width of the WIP Matte-Painting images must be 550 pixels.

Final Entry Thread : A Final Entry Thread will be posted on December 22nd, 2011 wherein the contestants will be required to post their final Digital Matte-Painting entries in 1300 px X 700 px (minimum) resolution.

Deadline : December 31st, 2011 (11:59 PM - Pacific Standard Time).

So, get ready with your pen-tablets and start to flesh-out your ideas and concepts for the challenges; will be eagerly waiting to see all your entries!!! :)
