[Completed] WIP: Her Ancestor (Make a Splash in Amsterdam)

Thank you so much :slight_smile:

If I was the judge, you’d win :slight_smile: the detailed notes, the well documented thought processes behind every small detail alone are just top notch. The end result is beautiful and charming, too, but wow, your documentation is truly incredible

Oh, thank you, and for me as well! I discovered and learned as I proceeded, as it usually is with these things.

And thanks a lot to you too, it means a lot. It was fun being part of this, amid works as beautiful as yours!

Incredible work, and great workflow documentation. It’s a beautiful scene to explore! I really like the additional assets and details you added, like

Spoiler!

the mini Trojan horse,

the aspis, and the trash barrel with wood planks and bricks in the corner.

The turtle, rabbit, and speech bubble worked a lot better in 3D than I’d expected. They fit the original style very well. Being able to move around the viewport helps the visibility of the bubble, and gives the characters a sense of location, making them look more balanced.

Thank you, and thank you for the feedback you gave me, it really motivated me to do more :slight_smile:

I had originally also created a Corinthian helmet, for a direct Achilles reference, but I wasn’t happy with it, I wasn’t sure were to place it! In the end, I thought the

horse
and the aspis could do :slight_smile:

Spoiler!

The plot thickens! This must be where Epeius bought the first design prototype… :grin:

But seriously, this was a really fun easter egg to find. It was subtle enough that I didn’t notice it at first glance, but it was really satisfying when I found it. And the aspis was also a cool addition to the scene.

Narrator voice: and that is how the challenge turned into a big rewrite of the Iliad
