    And here's my first one ...
    Winterlace #1

    It illustrates the famous (and for some strange reason often misquoted ;) ) saying:

    Hiro hadn't thought that it would have to be taken quite as literally ...

    Draw:

    Lunar craters moonscape
    The last hiro
    Songbird remix second edition
    Millenium horse bundle

    Other thingies used:
    Fortune Hunter Outfit
    A random umbrella I found in my runtime + several primitives to make up the cocktail

    I finally finished my first one. Not too happy with, maybe because I didn't like any of the items I pulled.

    ~Japanese Proverb

    Used
    Fantasy Castle 2011 - Castle Surround
    Brennan for Genesis
    Sanja for V4
    Simply Lit Enhanced - this is lighting w/HDRI and no background so I pulled another one (but will still use this too)
    Amoei

    Also used
    Town and Country for Genesis
    Large European Ash
    Fog Camera (Age of Armoour)
    Rons Smoke and Steam Brushes

    Not quite, for that we have "The drop that made the cup spill over".

    This is more to say that " A small issue often cause huge problems ", but our sayings are often very vague ;)
    Think of it in a farmers perspective, a small clump on the road can tip and ruin your whole wagon with fruit. Always be sure everything is ok.

    @ Lucy45: Thx! *feels very proud* I greatly like yours - it has a certain dreaminess that quite fits my mood. And it fits the saying perfectly.

    @ Totte: Clever thinking with the environments! Go, small clumps!

    I've been busy loading up my brand new PC, moving to DS4.5 at last (still have 4.0 on the laptop just in case!) so only just had the chance to catch up with this latest contest. (I also had to update my product list considerably as I've bought a frightening amount in the last couple of months.)

    So here goes my first pull:

    558 = Wolf
    33 = Michael 3.0 Base
    286 = Glyn Hair
    250 = Sorcerous Stronghold (texture set for Mage Tower)

    And wouldn't you know it, not one item is remotely new! Oh well, maybe next pull?

    ETA: And glancing back through the thread, have to say there are some superb images posted already - this is going to be a tough contest!

    289: retro and junkyard jet packs
    217: M4/V4 creature creator bundle.
    369: V4 expressions.
