Aaand my second piece, submitted for the 2nd phase of the NGMT '13, which also earned 2nd place, in a 3-way tie :P
The theme for this one was "Biodome - On a new planet or future earth where the surrounding environment is hostile, a biodome is a place where normal life can still exist." The challenge for this round was to create it in 3 days.
I ended up going for a more natural approach for a future Earth, and tried to show some of the beauty of being inside the dome while having the listener be acutely aware of the hostility of the outside environment.
So it was quite a challenge...but I'm pretty okay with it. I am aware of several points that need some work, thanks to the many people that left some incredible feedback in the voting thread :3
That being said, do feel free to leave your thoughts below~!
