Team challenge end results

Two teams dive into a challenge to create a magical hideout from their own making. The teams will be given one week to prepare, get to know each other and then dive into the one month production of their chosen environment within the given theme of "Magical hideouts". More screenshots can be found on the challenge page:

Both teams really surprised me and others when making these environments, especially in such a short time, all remote and with different time zones and other difficulties to work around as a team. The end results are really amazing and honestly they speak for themself!

Right now we're taking feedback and preparing for the next challenge which will be ramping up in the beginning of March and the production stage will start in April, so if you want to be a part of the next one feel free to join all of us before April through our Patreon.


MAGE'S HIDEOUT

A scholar turned magician combines his studies of planetary science with the practices of natural magic, harnessing the power of celestial events to experiment in ways of using his powers to benefit the world.
Unbeknownst to small towns nearby, the wizard had been responsible for crops breaking through the rockiest soil, hearth fires roared brighter on the coldest nights and those grayest of days, a touch more sun would shine upon the faces of the townsfolk.

Team responsible for this amazing environment: Nikkita Racquel, Ioaona Oprisan, Abdullahi, Derk Eslhof, Fran Vargara and Jacob Brown

LICH'S SHRINE

A statue of the lich stands in the center of the room, held in his hands is a jar which once held his soul-the container pours blood without end. Around this place, dark offerings have been left in respect of his name. These must not be touched, or the wrath of the lich shall be incurred.

Team responsible for this amazing environment: Ryan Lopez, Cairo Goodbrand, Luis Mesquita, Scot Daniel Burns, Sam Ryan-Fecitt, Tim Groß
