Commish: FOE - Project Horizons 24 x 18 Shadowbox by The-Paper-Pony Commish: FOE - Project Horizons 24 x 18 Shadowbox by The-Paper-Pony
This thing was a massive undertaking. Cut entirely out of card-stock scrapbooking paper. I believe it clocked in at around 700 pieces and mountains and mountains of adhesive foam dots. My wife took care of building each of the individual characters, and I was mainly responsible for the city backdrop and the final mounting.

Thank you :icon7tails: for constantly giving us a challenge.

Design heavily inspired by the FOE: PH cover by :iconsw1tchbl4de:

That's some complex construction techniques going on in this piece.  Great job on the perspective in the background and the letters.  I hate doing letters, any errors show up instantly.  Nice work, as usual.

I'm pretty sure Lacunae is purple.

The front of Glory's weapon should be less square, since it's at an angle to the camera.

Blackjack's augments weren't black until after Morning Glory started looking like Rainbow Dash.

Nonetheless, it's an awesome image.

I'm not dissing it. Like I said, it's an awesome image.

I also listed the mistakes I noticed. I don't see the point of listing things that were done right. You can't fix those.

Personally, this is your best to date. So many layers!
