    Really? I didn't see them :(

    oh well. Maybe i can still host this if someone joins.


    To get inspiration i usually get onto Planet Renders and browse their work there until i find something i like.

    But for regular work, i get onto google images and search the subject of whatever i'm trying to think of.

    But this challenge is a different one (I still don't know what stock images the 3 are though) and the more the merrier right? If many would just participate then.. As for me: 1) I'm not good at manipulation 2) I am busy bec. of school 3) planet renders ftw! 4) I'll try if I can participate. :wilber:
