"The [Mongolian death] worm is said to inhabit the western or southern Gobi. In the 1987 book Altajn Tsaadakh Govd, Ivan Mackerle described it as travelling underground, creating waves of sand on the surface which allow it to be detected. The Mongolians say it can kill at a distance, either by spraying a venom at its prey or by means of electric discharge.They say that the worm lives underground, hibernating most of the year except for June and July, when it becomes active. It is also reported that it most often comes to the surface when it rains and the ground is wet." - wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongolian_death_worm (2 years and 206 days ago)

I'm still rather new to photoshop contests, but I have read the guidelines and reread them a couple times after noticing your comment and have yet to find anything about wallpapers specifically. However, I do realize I found the image on a rather risky website so I do understand if I am disqualified and will try to stick to the more promising websites for future contests. Thank you.

Author, you're absolutely right, the rule about wallpapers seems to have disappeared from the guidelines. Still, we have to use sources from sites that offer images under creative commons, which wallpaper sites do not. You still have time to find a useable image and resubmit. If you do, work on the lighting & shadows.

author says:

Just resubmitted using better images and improved my lighting and shadows. Thanks for the advice, it means a lot.

Good work on the figure, but the moon in front of the trees is not believable. You might have chosen a background with open sky.

author says:

Thank you for your constructive comment Bob. I have tried to change it.

Too bad now after your changes we don't see the pathway in the forest anymore. Now it feels more like a generic background.

author says:

Hi Gosseyn,

Thanks for the comment. I know and I think so too. I did not want to delete the original pathway but then it was gonna be 11 sources and I don't know if we are allowed to use more than 10 as I couldn't add the source link except the description area. So I used this version

gosseyn says:

As long as you provide the sources links in the comments, I think you are fine with more than 10 sources.

Moderator says:

Author please note source 10 link does not work.
The URL: http://md-arts.deviantart.com/art/Smoke-IV-187745426 is correct but you should put the URL in the top box on the entry form by itself and put the word "smoke" in the lower box marked text.

author says:

Thank you, I have fixed it

a super soft blur brush along the body edge might help with the realism (its a very sharp edge with no feather).. but as always.. just IMHO.. art is art good luck

The bottom underneath the creature looks odd, because while you have a decent shadow beneath him, there is nothing but the background sunburst showing - what is that shadow being cast onto?
You might consider making the area under him more "solid looking, perhaps by just darkening it, so that the sunburst still shows, but is not so bright. Especially since the top of the sunburst is darkened...
