VERY COOL! love the overall color and feel of the picture!! Great pice of art! A couple suggestions take them if you wish, if not this still a great piece. Maybe make the eyes all black, or maybe glowing! Right now she looks a little cross eyed. Also it would be nice to see some fine detail hair strands, you could make just a few paths and stroke them with the pressure turned on. Anyway good luck!

Oh how cooool! So Shiny and great coloring!! A wonderful entry all around. Just a thought (and not to say it isn't just fine as is) but it might be cool to see them standing in water, with a bit of ripple and reflection.

I would drop the pizza, and I would go back to step 9, desaturate and colorize a little bit. If you blur the farther away parts and the farthest even more, it'll give it some depth. Also, in an actual landscape, the farther hills and mountains are from the camera, the gradually lighter and duller they look. Check out this picture you'll see what i mean

I think you have the pieces and everything for a great entry, just needs a little tweaking hope this was helpful, best of luck!

Yes its not cut in half, but technically it is "opening up" in some way. So, I guess I'd say it counts. Why stunt someone's creativity/ have an entry removed from a contest with so few entries to begin with? Its not EXACTLY what the contest was for, but I don't think is far enough away from that to matter. Nice chop either way GL

Love it! I'm sure this is not what you were aiming for, but the green cloudiness behind her totally looks like she is farting hehehehe, but in all honesty I would leave it that way! haha great work

Whow. AWESOME! Supremely sweet work, I just love colors and overall look of it!!!! only tiny change I would make is to possibly darken the top of the eye a little bit, it looks like the green feathers above it would cast a bit of a shadow, and make the eye look less like its sticking out of his head. But that didn't stop me from giving you a great score

....sorry to bother you further, but just in case that was confusing at all, I was just talking about the shadow of the tree and the sticks

Robart523 says:

Very cool! Great use of the source image, and wonderful shading!! Just a thought, the blurriness of the background suggests that it is far away, and your shadow tells us that it is very close, so your losing depth. Also there would have to be a light coming from where the viewer is for the shadow to be there...so long story short I would drop the shadow all together, and maybe blur the background a bit more, you could also desaturate the background a bit to make everything else pop! But either way this is a great entry. good luck

I love this very creative use or source image high vote from me! Just a thought, you might want to do some patch tooling of clone stamping of the clouds so they don't look mirrored where the light is coming from.

Very cool, I like the use of colors. Just wondering what is on the Deer's nose? it tongue perhaps? You might want to think about removing that. And a starry sky might be cool to

This is really cool! Great idea/execution of the shell. If you can make the table top under the shell more in focus I think it would look a bit more realistic. Right now it looks like the shell was placed over a blurred image and is not actually sitting on that surface.
