    So this is my WIP for the art pass contest. I'm pleased with how this is turning out so far :D

    If you can use the swamp theme stuff, I'll probably stick with the haze skybox. If not, then I'll change it. It fits nicely IMO.

    Feel free to comment on the visuals from the screenshots. I'll release a BSP later on (maybe).

    That concrete floor at A looks pretty ugly. Use the better looking one.

    I don't really like the main wall in the second picture. It goes from brick to concrete rather suddenly (and, in my opinion, unattractively).

    Also, the whole thing seems pretty drab, color-scheme-wise. I'm not positive what to suggest, but maybe it would look better if you can get some bright color in there like the blue or yellow barrel props, or a rich wood texture on some buildings instead of just the dirty concrete and dirty tin. Or maybe try a non-brown skybox?

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll probably change the skybox in to something less yellow.

    I hope you keep the hazy skybox, it works well I think.

    Fits the sort of early morning/early dusk fog scenario entirely. I think you've found your strongest theme so far. I like it a lot, closely watching this thread.

    Progress!

    Sometimes it's the small things that make you want to punch this contest in the face. Or yourself. depends

    I preferred the first skybox, but this one's pretty good too.

    Wow, looks amazing. It's a fairly fresh colour scheme. And would really add something new to TF2's current collection of maps.
