The Treasure Hunters

“The four companions from the ‘pxl world’ are on a treasure hunt. There are many hidden in the jungle. But they have the Magical pxl bolt which emerges light when the treasure is near. oh.. yeah.., the bolt is glowing, they found the first one …
Hmmm… Mr. blur is still seems little angry. (I know why) coz he doesn’t had his dinner yet. The robo girl (Tk) must be tired. she is travelling for four weeks. The avatar kid (hereisanoop) is very happy. (He should be).. riding the camel is very funny. The crew leader (krigios) is pretty relaxed and he have to plan for the rest of the treasure. “

I have asked permission to my fellow contestants for using their avtars and usernames in my entry. Happy that they allowed me to do so…
I dedicate this entry to them and of course ‘Robvdn’ who made this wonderful contest idea… J

Caricatured ‘Krigios’ and ‘hereisanoop’ taking their avatars as reference.
Character inspiration for ‘blur’ from the load balance contest , along with his avatar in the cap.

‘tk’ itself reminds me the name of a robot . So tk represented as the ‘lady robo’ along with her avatar.

Please see it in high-resolution and please check the sbs... :) (5 years and 155 days ago)

• I have search everywhere through this site and found nothing about contest with the theme of PXL birthday, but after looked at the pxleyes team about, it gave me the reason to dedicate my entry as a celebration of pxleyes birthday which mentioned on April 2006 by Mister Monty’s about. I think it’s not a coincidence; it was God’s plan to make my entry has a lot of meanings together with the three objects on the final round of Photoshop Tournament; a candle, animals with the logo.

• In my opinion, there are three biggest events in our life that we would to celebrate it.

• First, it’s a celebration of birth.
• Second, it’s a celebration of getting married.
• And last, it’s a celebration of death.

• As for the celebration of death, some might think it’s not an appropriate way to say. But for me, it’s also a celebration since I believe in God and Heaven is so real. While started this piece from concept, I’m also in the middle of grieving. My beloved aunt by the name of Etty passed away on 17th April 2012 at 10:10 AM days ago. We ‘celebrate’ her for three days until the cremation of her remnants, after that we spread her dust to the open ocean at 19th April.

• So, please forgive me if I tell you my slice of life that might bother some of you. It’s just a continuity background story of my entry after all; we celebrate our birthday, and then celebrate our married moments until someday we would be ‘celebrated’ by everyone when our life is end. All of them is a Celebration of Life.

Photoshop, AE, Lightroom and hours of sleepless nights... :) • (5 years and 155 days ago)

Trouble is lurking behind, literally, the yet-to-be-great wizard Rab who, despite his fellow apprentices' warnings, tried out some shadow summoning magic from the forbidden spell book. Where is the great master wizard when you need him?? (5 years and 155 days ago)
