Grabbed it to see assuming whatever Drax's Winter Bird was soundrack to had to be amazing -- but the tune is brutally cut off before it even unravels! Huge disappoitment albeit the demo certainly isn't bad.

Watching this demo today for the first time - a pleasant surprise. So many nice things in there - fine routines, great music and gfx. Very well-polished. My fav from the compo!

Hello everyone! Thanks for the positive critics... I'm happy, I was involved again in a new Chorus demo projekt. This demo is a milestone in my scene career, bcoz for this demo I drew my first UFLI pictures! Clarence asked me to get out some breathtaking and shocking stuff and ofcoure I got inspired by TCH's latest high-quality works! Fourth place was a bit dissapointing, but such is life. Next Chorus demo will be even monumental!!! :_) Thanks for the fast and slick work, Clarence and Drax! ;_)

Hmmm, in the starfield part, the slower stars should also move slower when moving up and down.
Nice stuff anyway.

Great great!! Maybe a bit short, but it has all the necessary stuff that makes it a good demo. Plus it's better designed (at least here and there :) than many other demos from BP06.

tdj: point taken:) I should not have used "should"... Well sometimes it slips through. what can I say? not a native speaker :)

I haven't seen this demo (yet) but already I feel that it should have taken the exact same place as I would have given it! I simply can't believe people have a different taste than me! ;)

Very smooth demo. Should have taken the second place imho (error 23 being first)

the vector part is something similar to what I have been working on for some time. It always hurts when someone beats you in implementing an idea first. :) what can I say... respect Clarence

@JackAsser: Ok, my mistake. I thought they've improved the technique.

4th place is really very low for this demo. It should have taken a better place, even 1st place.

@Skate: As Clarence described, this outdates EOR-filler == It's not EOR filling. (Also, polygon edges bugs is solved by also drawing the initial lines with EOR)

And yes, a very fine demo!

The only irritating thing in this demo is the way how DRAX's music is being presented.
Those sudden switches between tunes lower the overall feeling of this production.
In my opinion, only two tunes would have done just fine.

Chorus = smooth effects

I really *loved* all parts of this demo. Awesome! Specially EOR fill is a real kick-ass part. I had tried EOR fill 4-5 years ago but I couldn't handle polygon edge bugs and I gave up. I think I shouldn't have given up :)

Btw, Leon, impressive work, very high-quality graphics. I'm following your worx closely for 2 years and you're always getting better and better. I hope you can always keep your work higher.

Why does the Unicorn have a BEARD? agh.. too masculine for such a femininely beautiful creature. But artistically and technically wonderful picture.. I also enjoyed the ending music very much. Inspiring stuff!

Great gfx, great music, good coding but definatly not Chorus best work.
Some parts (like the filled vector part) looked unfinished & rushed.
Also Drax' marvellous music doesn't really come to it's right in this demo.
