Hitch hiker's handbook tip 42: In case you see a warning sign saying that you're about to enter an area where some unknown hostile tribe lives who were so unfortunate to get a curse some centuries ago...then do NOT ignore that warning!

Only source image and photoshop. For the guy in front I looked at 2 references (one to see how a body looks like, other to see how a lifted arm would behave). See SBS how things are done. Please do not forget to check the High Resolution version before you vote.
Thanks.

Edit: improved some spaceranger issues :-) & softened some edges here and there (5 years and 1784 days ago)

great entry

Ahh...guess who's coming to dinner? I like this, just a couple of tweaks... the left arm foreshortening is a little off. His wrist band should be shorter now it looks as long as his forearm. At that extension the triceps would be more pronounced and we'd see more of the lattisimus dorsi muscles. The forearm would be larger in diameter where it's closer to us and get smaller at the wrist. The rim light on the figure (camera left) should extend to the clothing and leg as well. There should also be some reflected firelight on his owl mask as you have on his neck and arm. Very nice work GL!

Great entry, and a very good job... nice imagination.. gl...It reminds me of Mel Gybson's "Apocalypto".

I like the color and illustration, but there are a lot of hard edges that could be softer...the hard edges cause a cut/pasted look. The hand on the left of main figure...the fingers have virtually no shadow. Other than that...it's very nice!

Great concept...but and there always is a but. The illustrated portion of your image looks disjointed from the source image. Also the front creatures right arm looks odd. Keep choppin'!
