wow, maybe you should check Spaceranger`s portfolio and see the kind of quality expected. Maybe then you wont mistake his good advice for jealousy.
Oh and it`s "you`re just jealous"... if you feel the need to foolishly insult a respected artist try to be grammatically correct.

Then this contest should be in photography with the enhancement restrictions lifted, photoshop entries that use a one click adjustment are generally frowned upon because adding a filter/adjustment takes no skill, the chopper is therefore relying on the quality of the original photograph & skill of the photographer. If I took one of your best photo`s and clicked auto color who gets the glory? me? you? or the guy that wrote the code for the auto color? The guidelines you mentioned really just makes this a contest for photographers to get some easy 2d points.

looks like a slightly distorted version of the reference image with a few brush scatterings for "authenticity" to me.

my comment wasnt meant to be offensive author, some of the best artists can do drastic chops to be quirky, its just hard to judge sometimes. Still a great concept

I get the idea, which is good... I do agree with akassa about the light, the elements need some work to make them blend better. GL author

Edit: sorry author my mistake, I was looking at the company copyright under the photo.

Black helmets sports day
avatar Geexman
Geexman says:

nice idea, only nitpick is that the clouds overlapping the moon wouldnt be as transparent, they tend to get darker in the contrast of the moonlight. Just as they do at the base of the sunset.

Geexman says:

Gotta agree about the cutlery, even a surreal mind must question how it would work? ( I wont even start on the use of a knife with pasta, my grandfather would turn in his grave) ....I would make it romantic with a single fork on the right hand side of each plate, leaving the suggestion that the lovers will meet in the middle of a strand.

Geexman says:

Great work, shame it wasnt in the contest intended. With the great detail in most parts of the image it would be good if you could add more detail to the chain links in the foreground, they seem to flow into each other a little.
The nitpick doesn`t distract from the fact it is a fantastic image so very well done author!

More of a minor addition than a manipulation, I would expect more based on the level of entries already in the contest, best of luck though

Not so clean...
avatar Geexman
Geexman says:

Nice source use, you could give it huge improvement if you establish a light source and add shadows separating the various parts, in addition to making the body parts seperate I would think about losing or changing the surrounding bevel... it links the bodyparts in an odd way. Nice image overall though

Geexman says:

Nicely lit & nice work with the source, only two little nitpicks....I`d bring the nest down to the branch as it seems to be floating slightly, and the birds tail seems too transparent even with the motion effect. Just my opinion though

Great entry, I think the blending is fine....and I believe the hair is drawn (drawn well too) only nitpick would be that I would have prefered the hair to be more grey. Best of luck author & well done
