As I had to write a term paper (look up "Hausarbeit" in a dic yourself if you want), I only spent 2 hours creating this. I hope you like it anyway.
An old church between two anonymous, modern office buildings, left by the people for the sake of money ... or some stuff like this (the story) :-D

Starting my compile now, I'll have my final shots in 3 and a half hours or so if all goes well.

Got the same feeling about this...
So far many of them seem to have just thrown out the abandonment and made it 'abandoned'. Which is exactly what I wanted to avoid...

Anyway,
I think I'm going to collect the finals and wrap up the thread a few hours later than mentioned on the first page, probably between now and 8 hours. So for the ones eagerly waiting for vrad to finish, you've got a bit more time left (Zip ;)

I had grand plans! Alas, they didn't make it. Good luck to everyone :)

If you really wanna know, I wanted to depict an armless teddy bear long forlorn beside a dumspter. Abandoned toys, in other words. I always felt bad for toys you don't play with anymore.

EDIT: I just realised that it's begging for a sexual reference :/

My finals. *** EDIT: Updated 3rd image!

Abandonment.

100 years from now and the world has warmed by just 4 degrees celsius. Heat waves blanket most of the Earth. Massive populations have been forced to abandone their houses and move north to the Arctic and south to the north-west of the Antarctic.

This family's wealth couldn't help them save their properties, as all they needed were the bare essentials to survive.

This land that once was is now uninhabitable and abandoned.


Abandonment 1: Bedroom.
The child's bedroom portrays what our children will be waking up to in the future.

Abandonment 2: Living room.
This modest-looking living room is full of expensive items which had to be left behind.

Abandonment 3: Graveyard.
This is a sand dune-covered graveyard of TV antennas, chimneys, and other roofy bits, resembling the existence of a past human community.

I'm well aware that this is shit and I'm not expecting any votes, but its the first real thing I've done in hammer and it took me a long time so I thought I might as well submit it :oops: Oh and I also ran out of time so its not even textured properly, as you can see :(

It's supposed to be like a laboratory/zoo where something has gone wrong and the antlions have just been forgotten about and left to die.

Doing my final compile now 904, I shortened it by an hour or so too so I'll have pics up in 2 hours or so. The extra time really helped out, thanks.

That´s nice Shred. Kind of reminding me of HL1 Opposing Force.

Zip (and possibly others), PM me. ASAP!
