Great choice for the face! Even though we can see the hat on the page for link 3, your link has to lead to the actual photo used.
Well technically Bob is right. The link should be http://www.deviantart.com/art/Clown-3-101048932
Nice entry BTW!
Thanks (and sorry about the link, I have fixed it)
Oh gosh, this is top notch work the colour palette, the detail the initial visual impact the pov...really great. Love it.
try to put some burn under the nose to make it more realistic ! Nice job
Thank you Demi
Congrats for first place !
Thank you !
Thank you SpaceRanger!
I didn't see this before. Good work Z!! What technique did you use to make his face look powdery?
Humm, difficult for me to tell you, as my computer is in France and I'm in Italy... worse, my Photoshop is in French and it adds to the difficulty. I'll try to explain you with the help of a lexicon when I'm home. It was nothing complicated, really
Now I'm home (one week earlier than expected, we had a crash with the motorbike )
For the skin I have used very soft large round brushes with a color a bit clearer than the actual skin.
I have done it on several blank layers, erasing the colour where I didn't want it, playing with the opacity and the blending options.
I hope you're happy with my explanations

Oh wow that is really good. Nice SBS too.
While I really love this, you may want to add the "texture feel" of the hat to the rest of the image. It's just that the hat kind of Pops out at you with it's realism while the rest of the image is severely "cartoonie and flat". Not a criticism, just an observation. By adding a texture or deeper shading to the face parts (enhancing their realism) would pull the piece together more in my opinion. Basically, I'm just thinking about the wonderful sources you used to create the piece would look even better if they retained some of their reality instead of the flattening effect that happens when the detail is lost. It's fine just the way it is, but I think it could be better if more detail was added, just to balance with the glory of the beret IMHO
Thanks Driven I had to flatten the sources as their volumes and their reality didn't fit with what I wanted. I just left the beret as it was, for a wink, do you get it? ah ah I thought it was funny, please let's laugh together at this funny beret
The beret is my FAVORITE PART!!!.. I WANT ONE!!! hehehe
It is OK if you want one, you just have to follow the link
Wonderful job..... good luck...
Congrats Z. This was good and so as skyangel's Olaf. Was a close race. I'm impressed.
Thanks B Long time since I didn't win
Congratulations on the win Sylvie. Excellent work.
Thanks Skyangel. I'm a bit surprised, this Donald was so easy to do... Your chop and my Mary Poppins were much more personal.
To Z. Easy to do but it looks awesome.
Bravo Zizounai !

The wood texture needs to conform to the contours of the face. Maybe try a displacement map.
Thanks for the tip CM, I didn't know this technique but I found a good tutorial:
In this case it doesn't change a lot, but I've done it
I am not an expert in Displacement Maps but maybe there isn't enough contrast in the boys face. If you have the time you may want to try a copy of the boy's face with levels, curves, or contrast applied and try the Displacement Map on that copy. Or you could duplicate they boy once again and set the top layer on a Hard Light Layer, Multiply, (or otherwise) to bring out more contrast. Then flatten those two layers and try again. I don't know if any of this will work, but you may want to try.
Thank you. I find the contrast in the boy's face sufficient. It is a portrait. Too much contrast can ruin a portrait, it hardens the face. It can be interesting in some cases, but here I whish my boy to remain sweet as an angel
Good score. Congrats seestah Z!!
Congratulations! It's a very good piece

Very creative and unique. I love those spiky balloons.
I love this chop ! without the cat maybe
Thanks! the cat fills an empty space, and he is watching the spiky balloons with envy. Maybe he will float too next time
If those Porcupine balloons run into each other, do they pop?
I didn't stay long enough, sorry. Just took a pic and continued my journey. I will stay longer next time
Congratulations well done
Wonderful job. You are the Queen of this contest. What technique did you use to cut out the top porcupine?
Thanks B, I still can't believe it... hope you're not too sad
For the porcupines, I have roughly cut them with the quick selection tool and pasted them on their original place. I have colored the background layer in white and refined the edges with the lasso tool and the polygonal lasso tool, using sometimes the eraser and the history brush tool.
I have set my Ps in English now instead of French, it makes it easier to explain and I also understand better what the other members are talking about
I forgot to tell about the top porcupine, I also used the color range selection to take away what was between the spikes, cleaning the yukkies it leaves afterwards. I know you tried to explain me a way to do it with the channels but my brain refuses to comply to this machiavelic method.
Thanks Z. I am happy for you. You got a pretty high score too! Good trick with the Color Range. I didn't think about that. Very impressive!!
Merci Lolu ! Les French girls ont le vent en poupe cette semaine !
Because of pollution, I don't think that such a view would be possible in real life... (2 years and 294 days ago)
