Era suposto eu ficar em 2º lugar maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssss não sei como novas regras apareceram. Siiiim, eu perguntei varias vezes aos organizadores sobre o tema e eles disseram que era livre, o que fez as coisas mais dificeis para mim.. mas no final havia um tema!haha um tema! a ilustração tinha que ter uma historia por trás como a dos "3porquinhos" por exemplo e tinha que fazer uma memoria descritiva do travalho. Nada disto estava no cartaz que anuciava o concurso! ... Bem... Continuem Bem organizadores de concursos de ilustração voçes realmente sabem como organizar um concurso!

In the middle of the rendering this i just fall in to sleep and just wake up a few moments ago.

The video, well in the animation fault 2 ligths on the FILTER 2000 isn't allready there cuz is a old render, but i add it for be more fun, is like a red light and a green light in the machine and that interact with the animation.
