Nice! Doesn't look much like a hoax photo though, but mood is very nice.

EDIT: Wait...I saw the high-res. This is another 3D image, isn't it?

avatar maryabitawi

amaizing... waiting for the SBS

avatar Drivenslush

This is gorgeous!!! though it doesn't look like a hoax photo.. it just looks like a spectacular sci fi piece (I would keep this image but replace the human with a real one so you have a better chance of winning the contest) it really is a supreme image though.. I really love it

It's very good, with no shadow of a doubt! But I think the most of people here - including me - don't have a 3D program - look, I'm not criticizing you... but it's clear that things go better when you have the tools!

avatar Palaekman
Palaekman says:

There is a free 3d program called Blender. And since you're allowed to use 3d programs, I don't see why you're complaining? sbs would be nice author. Good luck

avatar gamemastertips

Does it really say anywhere "you are allowed to use 3D programs?" And anyway, as I said before, it's not the program that seems unfair, it's the extent of it. When a small part of the image is 3D, fine. But when the main components of it are, it becomes more of 3D contest than a PS one.

avatar gamemastertips

That's a shame if the same thing happens 3D contests, but does that mean that it still has to happen here?

avatar gamemastertips

Not much, really. Eventually, just some guidelines should be put in place. Until then, it's just my opinion, and I know of a few other people who will most probably criticize you for using 3D software...*coughCMYKcough*...and one of your nice meter guard entries did ultimately get pulled, didn't it? Maybe just try to limit the use of 3D in your future entries...you'll get less haters and have less risk of being pulled. Good luck, author.

avatar DanLundberg

Pretty cool! The bright UFO light above the alien should be creating highlights on the top surfaces of the alien (e.g., head and butt) with a corresponding shadow on the ground. I think a much brighter center for the light spot the alien is standing in would be much more dramatic. Also, I find the bright spot on the clouds in the center of the image distracting. (It would be interesting to experiment with moving the big-UFO/alien elements to the right a bit instead of being centered.)

avatar gamemastertips

Just to be clear, I never said you cheated. Just thought maybe the 3D was used a bit too much. But, thanks, Nator. I suppose I neglected to look in the most obvious place for the existing guidelines.

BTW, author, why'd you delete all your comments? Now I look like I'm talking to myself.

langstrum says:

This is the Photoshop contest and we can use the 3D program to support our work, not the 3D contest supported by Photoshop. I agree with gamemastertips. If you don't provide enough your technique, people can misunderstand you use only PTS and this is UNFAIR (for example, picking an 3D image is much easier than creating the 3D from the 2D image). However, to gamemastertips, I think this is not the good place for discussing too much, you can do that in the forum. Focusing on this work and as far as the PTS factor is concerned, you might did a good job turning the left UFO into the damaged one.

avatar langstrum
langstrum says:

Because you didn't show the PTS steps, so I just guess this is the part you used PTS, right? Beside that, I agree with Drivenslush that you could replaced the human with the real image (this one looks bad to me). Through other entries of yours, I know that your PTS skill is also very good, you can do a good job even with the pure PTS manipulations and get higher votes from people like me and gamemastertips. Anyway, wish you a good luck with this contest.

avatar gamemastertips

Agreed, Langstrum. Sorry if I rambled on too much. :p

avatar pearlie
pearlie says:

this is supposed to be a PHOTOSHOP contest.

avatar gamemastertips

Just to repeat again what I said, author, and to echo Langstrum, you have enough great PS skills to do a pure PS entry. If you do, you'll have alot less people giving you low votes because they don't think it's fair. I rest my case, and I don't mean you to change your entry, just think about it for the future.

avatar lchappell
lchappell says:

Great looking picture, I like how you have incorporated the 3d work into your "PHOTOSHOP" contest image. Palaekman is right there are plenty of free programs out there don't knock it until you've tried it. Just because this member used a 3d program to generate a piece of the picture does not mean it is a guaranteed winner. The photoshop work is still very evident in this entry. Good job author! high marks from me.

avatar gamemastertips

Okay thought some more about the other side of this argument: 3D is somewhat fair because you could have either pulled the UFO image off the internet or simply made it yourself. You chose the latter, which is perfectly fine, and the PXLeyes guidelines says so. But on the OTHER hand, author, didn't your "Last Chance" meter guard entry get pulled? (I'm really asking you this, it's not rhetorical.) Why exactly? Was it because you used too much 3D and not enough of the source? But then why is that a problem if PXLeyes allows the use of any program? This is what seems so convoluted. Because if they say that any program can be used, then what if you use Photoshop as minimally as possible? Wouldn't the entry get pulled then? So my question is: what is, in everyone's view, the limit that an external program can be used? I think I'll make a forum post about this soon.

I would think the voters spoke well in this case

avatar gamemastertips

Oh terribly sorry about that. O.o I missed that entry...moving on now...

To end my annoying rant, I guess I'll just say that I see both sides of the argument, your picture is still awesome, and I wish you luck.

Aside from the 3D controversy, I don't see how this image represents a hoax photo.

avatar RAZ0R
RAZ0R [banned] says:

there is no more "3D controversy" MM cleared it up in the forums, good work

avatar gamemastertips

Yes, 3D aside, I do agree with CMYK. It's a very nice sci-fi photo, but it's pretty fake, unfortunately.

avatar elinoree
elinoree says:

Love the colors here. UPon looking at the High res, I think the figure could be better blended into the overall image, she/he looks pasted on.

avatar spaceranger

The Rules and Guidelines regarding use of 3D images states: "People are allowed to use 3D renders from the net in the photoshop contests, they just have to provide links etc. But it is so much better when they make them themselves. From the guidelines: (UPDATED 08/2009): If you use a 3D program to create a model (eg. with Poser), it is required to post this in your step by step guide. You are allowed to use any program you'd like to make your entry. If you make your own renders, please make screenshots from the object in wireframe modus and show in the Step By Step how you made your render." Whether we agree or not that rule makes this a perfectly valid entry.

avatar lchappell
lchappell says:

a quote from the comments on this contest suggestion - Contest Moderator: "The contest theme is to show a UFO. This means a vehicle of some kind that is an Unidentified Flying Object, which you may show in flight or hovering or even landed."

avatar spaceranger

Yes Ichappell that's just a reminder, I think to clarify this isn't about aliens and monsters but about UFO sightings.

avatar CMYK46
CMYK46 says:

So how does this represent a hoax, which seems to be the point of the contest?

dude ) ky ( try reading the goal of this contest,
you are an idiot

avatar hereisanoop

thats..... cooool..... I like the result..GL

avatar shaadow
shaadow says:

I am wondering why are there seperate '3d contests, ps contests, and drawing contests.. 3d max is that much advanced for making fabulous models... I want to ask here whether my entry will get pulled if i put a drawing of a scenario which has a ufo... this not to hurt you author.. since this is amazingly well constructed.. but still doubt about using 90% work with 3d....

avatar hereisanoop

what happens if somebody use a 3d program to construct their own images... since it is allowed to use images that are not copyrighted...

avatar RAZ0R
RAZ0R [banned] says:

every entry here at pxl in the end is 2d, thats what we see here,
photoshop is an image editing software so it is a catchall in the contest, some may draw, some may use 3d, some may set up a photo, and some look for a photo source on the net,
no matter what type of source you use in the end you edit it in a 2d and post in contest
