Level 38 : Artisan Engineer
Lore:A long time ago, a king tried to trick the gods into eating human flesh. When the gods found out, they banished him to the underworld, where he was forced to stand in a pool of water and under a fruit tree, yet unable to eat or drink. There, he suffers from constant hunger and thirst, and remains straining to reach the fruit to this day.

About the build:
This build consists of 2 parts:
the first part is a giant statue of the torso of Tantalus, buried to the waist in an obsidian island, trapped by golden chains.
the second part is a towering green peak, with a massive tree with glowing fruit.
the entire build is surrounded by an endless shallow sea that Tantalus cannot bend down to drink from.
The build goes up to almost the build limit, and was done in 2 hours by me, using worldedit.
Due to my self- imposed time limits, I was not able to do any super fancy detailing, but i tried to polish it as much as i could.

This is my first organic, so feedback would be really helpful!

agreed. i didn't wanna extend my time limit because i wanted to see what i could do in a short amount of time. the face probably delayed me the most, and it still doesnt even look that good.

The statue looks great, especially considering the time given.
The towering green peek looks not so, I find it hard to tell if it is a mountain island
with some sort of jungle/amazone giant tree or something else.
But overall for 2 hours it looks great, try to give yourself more time for the following speedbuild.

haha yes, the green island thing was made by me in worldpainter in 5 seconds by holding down the raise terrain tool until the thing reached the build limit. I will work on improving my worldpainter skills.
thank you for the feedback
