    wow Apoc, a nice theme... I think we will see many beautiful entries with this theme...

    Awesome theme Apoc. Hopefully one day someone will get a wake up call ... it's time to upgrade Bryce (referring to your linked post)

  • HoroHoro Posts: 9,465

    Apoc - interesting theme and also a very interesting comment in your linked post. The animation looks just great.

    I'm stumped already, lol.

    I read your link and agree with Chohole that Bryce replaced her brushes, not her skills.

    It’s quite a challenging challenge, I thought of an animation-(Apoc mentioned animation in the intro,) and I remembered I did an animation for one of the challenges a long time ago it didn’t go too well, mainly because I posted a link to the gif on my Pinterest account, unfortunately it takes long to load.

    Anyway, my 1st - an abstract; it would be endless colors, curves, lines, geometry anything, based on a tutorial by David – mirrored box, I used a pyramid instead of a cube.

    Good work, mermaid010, a very abstract concept.

    Teobaldo - well done infinite corridor.

    Teobaldo - I just noticed your entry in the gallery. If I remember correctly, challenge entries should not be published before the Poll is done.

  • NGartplayNGartplay Posts: 2,482

    Very cool Teo!

    I don't know much about technology, all my animations I convert to gif in photoshop, upload to my Pinterest board and post a link here. Maybe I'm not sure the avi file can be uploaded to YouTube and posted here. The difficulty arose with my entry, that's about 6 years or more ago, it could not be included in the voting. I think I replaced it with a still.
