This is what i have so far.
It's a electricity consuming Plant.
Still need to add the electric part and finish shading the rest.

I would think Power Plant would be a more fitting title ;P

I think I'll attempt this one. Haven't made anything in forever.

I believe I am finished with the still frame, apart from the fact that I'll probably try dithering the sky. Tomorrow I'm gonna have a go at animating O.o.



I may edit the flowers a bit as well.

But the flowers are like battery. They provide electric charges that give the building power :)

It's not yet approved. You don't have to fill in the colorcount, though if you do then count all different shades.

Does it have to be like, a flower specifically producing electricity (or being turned into) or can it be any 'plant'?
 
IE Trees, or Fungi. (note that some trees do produce flowers)

Also, and this is directed towards everybody, a flower being implied as a battery source does not portray it being electric or producing electricity. One must be more creative than to place a flower on top of a machine or some such nonsense.

The purpose of these challenges is to incite creativity and imagination - it is not a chance to 'cheat the system' or find loopholes.

so does the plant need to be the electric devise or does the devise need to look like a flower? example: a lantern that was made to look like a flower? or a sunflower that faces downward that has certian cemicals the make its centar glow giving it the works of a ceiling fan?
