50th Bryce Render Challenge! (Underground)

edited January 6 in Bryce Discussion

intro:
My family members are sick, so being the only healthy person in the house that is realtively young,(ish) I spend alot of time taking/going to dr appointments, doing miscelanous help around the house, and helping others with what I can. The pandemic hasn't hit too hard, but certainly doesn't make things easier. So if your ever wondering, why I am often late on these posts, its usually cause I get distracted with other things.
Since I feel like a zombie sometimes, I saw a theme that caught my eye. I thought "Hey, brycers are really creative, lets see what they come up with".  We have alot of contests in open areas anyway, so this might be a good change of pace

Bryce Contest #50

 Description: 

Whether your on a quest for buried treasure, or a teenage turtle living underground. There is always something to find under the earth.
You never know what secrets lie beyond the soil. It could be a fossils, rare gems, crude oil, or even 5 whole Zimbabwean dollars! The world can only find out, when you're ready to share. To lost technology, memotos of war, or even subterean landscapes, Your imagination is the only limit.

    Interesting theme, looking forward to the entries

    Apoc, no need to apologise; you are only human (I assume wink). But I agree with Mermaid, this is quite an interesting theme!

  • Yellow PenYellow Pen Posts: 715

    Apoc, sorry to hear that about your Family... so you have much to do with this. I hope that all get healthy back soon.

    About the theme I agree with Mermaid.

  • mermaid010mermaid010 Posts: 3,844

    Sorry Apoc, I missed the Intro. These are sad days for many. We lost a few loved ones during this past year, and the pandemic seems to go on and on. Praying for good health for everyone,and a better 2022.

    Apoc : interesting theme. Sorry to hear about your family, hope they all get better soon and that 2022 may be the year the pandemic stops.

    @ Apoc: I'm sorry to hear about your family. I really hope that everyone is fine again soon and that you can relax a little more yourself. Don't worry, as Brycer we all have patience I think.
    Underground - that's a challenge for me this time. Let's see what I can think of.

    Apoc ...sorry to hear of your family troubles as a carer myself I know how it can be.

    as I have not been around I thought I would kick this one off with the obvious " Old Mine"

  • @Spuddy:
    Old Mine - cool picture. The second version looks better to me.
    A slice of earth - crazy idea. The slightly shifted beetle looks better.

    My first entry is inspired by the old covers of computer games:
    Adventure - the Beginning

    spuddy - very well done entry.

     

    My first entry.
    Title: Bright Columns
    Used: High Resolution Terrains 1
    Note: When I visited this cave I was profoundly surprised by the shiny pillars and wondered when and by whom they were placed all over the cave.
