I like the transition from BW to color, nice work and fix on the violin. And you're a musician, too!

wow, I like this colorful implementation. The warm colors of the left side. Also a good idea to segue dark to the right.
I think it could be a good idea to associate the right staue more with the background, it seems now a lil bit superimposed.

Good idea, nice clean chop! If you can flip the background statue it'll match the light source on the left foreground statue.

No problem ... it was a personal thing ... not a real critique on the work ... that is why I kept coming back to it ...and I still can't say that I don't like it??? It did not effect my vote either way though

Very nice, but I would reduce the asymmetry of the cheeks and chin.

Interesting, but would be more so with an SBS which might help explain the lighting on his chest. I personally don't get the point of the stone fence and would just delete it. I think the title overdescribes the image IMO. (I could see an angel as a soldier of God, but as a soldier of abstract 'faith' seems too much to me.)

too much distortion on rear part of tiger.....otherwise brilliant idea.

New King in Town
avatar RayTedwell

Nice job, my only criticism is that the lion head looks like its balancing on its point on the ground and isn't too realistic. If you lay it flat on the ground and adjust the shadow accordingly it will look better. A few other fragments of broken plaster would also look good but that's a fair bit of work :P

Very cool piece. My only suggestion would be to eliminate the shadow on nthe archway from the cross. The light source is from above(note the shadows on the chest). Nice use of the source too.

I really like this but I am not sure if I like the stained glass. It is technically well added but I keep coming back and looking at it because I just can't decide what I don't like about it. I think it distracts from the rest of the image. And, although I know rules are made to be broken ... it is not a great placement for the overall composition; pulls the eye away from the image???

Love the rest ... it has a very mysterious feel to it with the shadows!

Warlock [banned] says:

Nice work and a very creative idea. my only suggestions would be to blend the fin in a bit more and to give it less transparency Something of this size would not have thin or flimsy fins…..

The Return of the SnailWhale

erathion says:

Very nice work on a Whale,my only advice is to erase some parts of the white stripes with some soft brush,that would give realistic mark...Sailing boats looks a bit more unrealistic,maybe u could use some other image of the boat,ship or etc...Any how i like this construction very much,and i am sorry for nit picks...
Edit:maybe u could change color of the whale to,some kind of blue or greenish,then he would look very very realistic
