Haha I didn't expect anybody to actually challenge the max width limit. Nice job! Welcome on board.

Can you give me a hint about the symbolism? Just curious...

Well if you only want a hint, these three animals represent different things in a certain culture.

Ok I think I got it. Strength, wit & speed?

One more thing, after looking at it on my comp rather than mobile, I think the "pole" looks a bit flat. More like a board. You could try to add some shading to make it look more round like this. But with your shading technique instead.

Save a original copy, in case you don't like the outcome, so you can go back.

Of course, this is a "CAN" not a "MUST". It's accepted either way. There are other flat poles, it's just that it would suit your pic better, if it was less flat. :P

Yea I can try and adjust it later tonight for ya, I'll see how it turns out.

And you were close. Boar represents courage and confrontation, while a rabbit represents fear. The Coyote is in between, because he's said to represent duality, both extremes of the spectrum coming together as one blah blah :P

looking forward to what you bring to the table... I mean, totem.. :3

will start linking pieces when its closer to the deadline, so it has a much more flowing feel rather then bolting them together in chronological order.

Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Yeah that's a good point. Also, some pics might undergo changes in the meantime.

This goes to everyone: If you make last minute changes, additionally to PMing Chameneon, inform LegolaSS, too. He is the master of linking and flowing in town.

It looks as if the dimensions are not correct. It should be 500px high in total and 200px wide on the bottom and top edges. There is a rough guide here. If you still have trouble adjusting your totem, send me a PM.

This pic shows the dimensions you're working to. Your pic has to be 200px at the top and bottom so that the totem can continue from the top and the bottom. The pic also should be 500px high for conformity.

This is your pic in the forums. At its base it is 128px wide, and its height is 178px. I don't see how it can link up to a section above it, either.

How do you make your 3D stuff, btw? Are they prefab models from Daz3D?

While it fits the dimensions now, that grey stuff you added doesn't fit the rest of the image. The simplest (although not extraordinary) solution would be to make the head a bit bigger if possible and add a pole of some sort with the correct dimensions behind it. I have sent you an example via PM.

question - while joining these pieces together. do you want me to just keep them all together and send the whole picture rather then cut them back up into single pieces, i dont know how your flash is going to work, like does it go up piece by piece or does it just scroll?

At the moment, the code loads a pic every 500px. So they'd have to be cut in half. I was thinking, I could prepare some longer parts for Cham so there is a little less to code for him manually (determining the order of the pics) while leaving you more creative freedom when linking them up. I am however a total noob on the technical side and just thinking out loud, what could be done.

I am really sorry for not looking after this as closely this last week. I have been delaying the progress while attempting to make some stuff for the background. Sorry Chameneon, I'll stop procrastinating.

Looking good. I am all for variety. There are some white artifacts here and there though. Can you clean that up? And the corners are not meeting the edges properly, except for the bottom left corner. PM me if you have questions.

Hey there, glad to have you on board. I really like the tower, good idea. If you could add some shading to make it look round, rather than flat, I'd be a happy little tree... :3

Not yet. This is my bad, I was meant to send Cham some background files some days ago.

Once again, sorry for responding so late and for the general delay. The good thing is, there is more time for people to join. ;)

Think positive!
