Very nice, im not sure about the sun being directly infront though but i do like the style.
Thanks Turvs, yeah I agree, I was feeling weird about having everything so centered as well.
After thinking about this idea though, I think I may go something more comical. It will be easier for me, probably more fun, and hopefully better all around! I might have to PM the mods to get a title change.

I think you'd be better off with a possible camera tilt and the light cascading from the right, possible just off centre or extreme right, I like the fish eye effect though that's pretty cool. Can't wait to see where you take this :)
thanks chunkymunky, but i think for sure I am going to change the idea around hehe
ok, thanks to Tom, the title is changed, and I updated the concept with something new

The idea looks nice, but I can't fint the link with ''Gift to the Gods''
Ah, Ok, well I'll give a little backstory.
As of late, the American car companies had been struggling for money... Pontiac, Chrysler, and various others, were dropped from their parent company's production lines. It seemed as if all was about to fail. GM had reached bankruptcy and needed to be bailed out. President Obama granted their wishes, but such a generous offer would not come without consequences later on down the line.
Ford, remembering that a company is only as good as its product, did not want any bailout money. They knew they needed to innovate, create something new and efficient that could get them back in the race with the new foreign carmakers, and just pray that it would work.
They prayed often, but they were not answered. Jesus, Allah, Buddha, what have you, they were all busy, and had plenty of prayers to answer already. Surely they could not help save a car company whose pure motivation was money! Ford's dreams of riches, fame, and wealth were the opposite of most practiced religions.
So Ford hit the books. Their engineers were stumped. Their marketing was junk. The designers were using crayons. They couldn't make a good looking fuel efficient vehicle to save their lives. They decided that they needed to pray to someone who like them, had become a deadbeat outcast, whose dreams of wealth and power were long gone.
A god who appreciated the thunderous sound of a carbureted pushrod v8, who loved to move with the speed of lightning. A god whose asskickery could take out all of the modern deities in one fell sweep.
So they prayed, to ZEUS! They provided him with a one off "mustang" chariot, so he would look damn good driving through the clouds to pick up his next retirement check. In return, Zeus gave the entire engineering department a bunch of Ti-83's. He introduced the marketing team to this thing called the internet. And he took the reefer away from all of the designers. And in a short time, Ford was producing innovative vehicles and bounced back, without the need for any bailout money from Obama.

sweeet story :D
So at least two of us go for a parody :D I can't wait to see u'r progress, mine will be cartoon/toy like :)
Haha yes I like the parody ideas, but unfortunately I doubt they will have a shot with the more serious entries that people will be doing
I've spent longer than I'd like to admit getting this much done so far... Oh well. It's coming along better than I expected at least!

That's actually really cool armour for the horse, loving the sharp lines and the shapes are looking very cool, this has got potential, even though I liked you're original idea this could be really cool too :)
thanks munky, it's not really armor per se, but the entire horse is mechanical. i'm waiting to see what you turn out!
