In order to be validated, you must show us the work in progress. No entry will be accepted without a work in progress example

Please name your threads like this: Your Name – Dragon's Lair

Also, please keep all questions in this thread

Sad that I don't have enough time... but perhaps I'll give it a go, just for the fun. Though I don't think I will be able to finish it in time. :-(
Nevertheless this is just great! I love the new challenges!

Hello,

One question: I know the final image needs to be 'photoreal', but does this include a stylized photoreal? example: Warcraft cinematic style?

Thx!

you can go stylized as long as there is a real sense of depth
