Does this contest accept photography instead of art? I might have a couple of photos I can use and I think it would expand the contest.

@ Salvidian : Sal... should I explain? I think you know why it is not going to be included, right? ;)

I don't know, actually. I'm guessing this pertains to the Winter Contest then, huh? Let me guess: no photography?

If so then I'll do something else.

Here is my armatar. I call it a "Spring Globe".

I changed the background a little. I think I'm going to go with the this one.

Any feedback.

Very nice idea, Reton, for a Spring alternative to the falling snow. I like it a lot. The new background looks better, too.
Do you think it would be a good idea to make the grass patch go slightly upwards at the edges, to reinforce the illusion of a glass globe?

Thanks!

You mean like tilt the grass inward or add more along the side?

Also, I am going with the second one.

I made a different change, but I don't know how I feel about this one.

The problem I have with this is that it makes it look like the tree is not in the globe but part of the background, but I like how the additional grass makes the globe look like it's outside in a field. It also fills up the negative space better.

Is this it? There's only been like 6 submissions.

@Reton8: That's awesome, and in my opinion make the grass outside the globe a little lower or make it a different shade.
