Thanks. :D

I did the clouds with particles. Was very hard to shape my own clouds from a subdivided cube, so in the end, I cheated and ended up using a nubula script and shaped my cloud from there. Cloud is textured with "cloud." There is only one cloud in the whole thing, but I have merged some, scaled others, and rotated a few. :shhh:

Here it is: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread?t=53356
Just generate something and then shave off all the verteces you don't need. After that, you can scale certain dimensions to make it look right.

Why has a developer ever needed any reason other than "it looks bloody awesome?"

Does it say something like "Couldn't get dimensions of image?" I uploaded to TinyPic and that's what happenned. It has been happening ever since the addition of ImantuImg..

ImantuImg better not be the problem, I'll be pretty angry if it is. I just filled out the form to add the new BBcode through the admin pages. But that error is what happened to me when I tried to put up the images for the last contest...I'm not trying to force you guys to use Imantu, if that is what you are thinking...

Yeah same with Photobucket and Imageshack hopefully it's a simple fix

i don't get an error or anything. i just click "submit" to put a post, it loades, and then stops. it just won't post until i remove the [IMG] link.

hey Dictator for life, i love your trees.
also, it seems to me that the moon isn't exactley round, it might just be me.

ImantuImg better not be the problem. I'll be pretty angry if it is. You should of told me about it sooner, because the error message was popping up for me when I was trying to put the images up for the last contest. I'll take the ImantuImg BBcode tag down and see if that fixes the problem. I don't want to force you guys to use Imantu, so if I have to take it off I'll leave it off...

UPDATE: Problem solved. The only reason ImantuImg worked was because it was set up in a way that the server doesn't have to resize the image, the browser does. On the Img tag, it apparently needs a setting on a server to be turned on to make it work. So, if there was no ImantuImg tag, no one would have been able to post an image at all. I guess it was lucky timing.

Wha-?? Weird.. How did Irascible's post end up replacing mine?

Ah, well. I guess I'll repost my entry:

I made the trees with NGPlant, easier than Blender, but still confusing nonetheless ;)

Yea, the moon is perfectly spherical, I guess IMANTU resized it and it got a little screwy. It is a sphere on my computer though. Guess it's the luck of the draw. If it bothers you, I'll just post it up on TinyPic real quick 8-) :
