nice blending looks quite real -- might lose the winter playground sticker -- looks a bit odd (IMHO)

Kudos for not going the CBR (chopped beyond recognition) route. Nevertherless: Seeing the contest source, I can appreciate how one might imagine "what if a real bison traveled around the Utah area and came back home with stickers on itself from where it went?" Overlooking why anyone would find the end result particularly interesting outside the context of this contest, it's curious that 'home' is a small, rectangular slab beside an urban parking lot. The rear stickers look more realistic that the front ones. The shadow is weak right under the hooves where it needs to be strongest in order to anchor the bison to the ground. It's not clear what the 'glow' in the 'beard' area is supposed to represent.

Very nice work and great blending.

@ Dan IMO glow is here for showing him angry

A random thought -- New title: Where the Buffalo Roam. Description: "Excuse me. I'm visiting from out of town. Where do the deer and the antelope play?"

Good blend of the 2 images...might be better to remove the statue base. I think he's meant to be snorting judging from the foggy area around the nose? Might want to rethink that...

SBS say: -It's his breath! He does say he's getting cold ,so you probably would see his breath?

author says:

Nice, guys! We can see bison's breath as an angry sign. As a scene like this (a bison full of stickers) is unlikely to happen, let's think of it this way: maybe it was bewitched, like a statue. But the witchcraft was broken, and it turned to life, and wishing go home. In a bit cold day, many times our breath can't be seen, but a breath of a huge animal like a bison can.

nice idea.. ,

avatar CMYK46
CMYK46 says:

Author, that's a good explanation so far, but why is the statue base still there?

author says:

@Bob: I would say to you to pretent that it was a sewerage system lid!...
But I made the changes you suggested. Well, I hope it's better now.

avatar DanLundberg

While it's a bit disconcerting that the author isn't sure what the image is about ("...maybe...", replacing the concrete slab with grass is a definite improvement. I think the middle-hoof shadow should be tilted slightly (8 o'clock to 2 o'clock) to better match the perspective of the ground.

author says:

@Dan: thanks! Of course, it was the base of the statue. As CMYK asked why the base was still there, I said that.
About the shadow, I think it's similar to source 1...
