Congratulations, so deservant of this win! Magical work and great SBS explanation.
TY still26. That Chop was an adventure. The source was pretty much nothing and only a few brave souls stood up to the challenge. I tried sort of a War of the Worlds type monster which somehow started looking like a house, so I went with that until it just wasn't working. Then tried the robot with not much time left and as soon as the body, a shoulder, and part of an arm was done, it just felt right. I wanted to add a butterfly maybe on his shoe or head but I just had enough time to get it done and get it entered with a few hours to spare.
As you well know, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the creativity shown by the artist's on this side of pxyleyes site. Also , as you most likely are aware I'm a newbie when it comes to this kind of manipulation and am so happy that there are teachers on here to guide one in the process. What I find amazing is the thought process you went through to get to the robot for y'see, I lack in a thought process but can see it is an evolution of ideas. Your SBS I found detailed and educational and thank you for that. You can feel free to really critique my entires, I won't rip your head off and will appreciate any suggestions for improvement.
OK you asked for it. I will critique the heck outa your chops haha.
Yes, please do but I am traveling now, am in Sri Lanka until June but will definitely try some chops. I also find Skyangel and Zizounai great teachers.
Congrats my friend fantabulously wonderful this is.

A princess from the far away land of lamp posts. So many lamp posts, even the royal family there uses lamp posts to tailor fine clothing ;) (3 years and 181 days ago)
congrats on your entry.. may I give you a couple of tips. if you look at your cut out, especially the arm on the left of screen ( and other parts) it has a very "zig-zag" finish. to help fix that :
get a small brush .. round - hardness 0. size small ( will vary on the size of your image but start small.. eg 10-25
go to the image layer , click on it.. add layer mask. ( use mask not eraser.. easy to fix image issues).. now using soft brush on mask.colour black to take away , white to bring it back, go around the edges of your image and "smooth" them out
hope this helps.
a little rough author, but wonderful to see the imagination... fun chop and the polish will come, you will find yourself correcting things you never noticed before.. you'll get the hang of it, and this is a great start.. GOOD LUCK
Good advice from scratzilla1 and Drivenslush. The sources used are at a good res and will be sharper if you create your entry at a larger size and at a higher resolution. I usually work at 200pxl per inch, see this entry for an example: http://www.pxleyes.com/photoshop-picture/56fecc534026b/Sunday-in-the-Park.html
The PSD (working size) is appx. 11.656" X 9.56" at 200 pxls per inch. The JPEG used for submission is appx. 11.656" X 9.56" at 125 pxls per inch giving me a final image at 4.98M which is just under the maximum size allowed for submission images. This makes the high res version of the entry 20.236" X 16.597" at 72 pxls per inch.
It's just a matter of reducing the resolution when making the final JPEG. I keep the res at 100 pxls per inch as the minimum size and if needed I reduce the image dimensions until the final size is at 5.00M or just under that size. It's simple trial and error and takes a little time but the result is a good sharp entry image and a good high res version.
Thanx to all of you for the comments and tips. I have been using (and teaching) Photoshop since version 3. I just got lazy and uploaded the princess too quick. I fixed a few things this morning like her arm, the pixelized edges, and her skinny waist. I kept it at 72dpi since on screen the resolution won't make much difference.
It was fun!
super.. love the changes. great job. all the best with your entry.
It's still better to work your entry at a higher res and larger size, this will make it easier to work details and will give you an optimum quality which when reduced to 72dpi will give you a larger and sharper high res and entry image.
Your high res is only 6.292"X 9.292" and can't be enlarged to see more detail. Compare that with this other entry in the contest: http://www.pxleyes.com/photoshop-picture/57941c6bd6fc6/Royal-Air-Corps.html which has a high res of 64.528"X45.167" allowing the viewer to see a much larger version that you can zoom in to see finite details of the work.
As a professional artist my original illustrations both in conventional media and CGI were always done at a size much larger than the reproduction size to produce a high quality sharp image.
So this should be the last version. Her head is more in proportion, and I added a golden background by copying a tiny piece of the golden metal in the source image.
