You should tweak the reflection a bit... Looks like they are floating... But if you intended to make them look as they are floating then it's okay...

Aww now it's not a stalemate anymore... I liked the previous one better... This one fine as well( I already had cast my vote, so doesn't matter)... However instead of removing that knight you could have done an another thing...

But no need to edit it anymore, cause too much editing can ruin the feel of the picture... Just saying this so you can apply this to an another image...

Instead of removing that horse rider, you could have blurred him a bit and also blur the background( blur the background more than you blur the horse rider in the back...)

And then you could have blurred the horse rider in the front as well... This would have created a nice dof and more focus would have been drawn to those two swordsman on the ground...

As I said no need to edit it anymore... Was just giving an example...

LOL... I kinda find the whole scene funny... However the knights fighting on the bridge might need some shadow below their feet...

Also the knight on the right( in the bridge) need some masking between his arm...

Edit: Ahhhhh.. A stalemate... Nice... And the pic looks better now...

Now that will be really big and smelly fart lmao... I could say lighten up the smoke a bit... But it does contribute to image, so leave it as it is...

p.s. Should have included humor bar...

Oops!
avatar arkncheeze

Missed masking, hmmmm... I compared the contest source, the outer source and the entry... I think that is not missed masking rather the reflection of the rock of the outer source... I matched the position and shape of the reflection with the supposedly missed masking and it matches... So no missed masking... But author should clarify...

(Guess I had nothing better to do lol)...

Nice but howerver tilted maybe the glass, the water line should stay horizontal, not slanted as in this case...

(5 years and 2091 days ago)

how?
avatar arkncheeze

I agree with Akassa... Color of blood is okay, but looks like paint... Needs to look more viscous... Try bevel n emboss, I mean try playing with bevel and emboss.. Also as blood begins to dry and harden, there will be kinda like a bump at the end of the blood flow... But you got the expression well...

If that planet is suppose to be earth( which I think is) and earth's 3/4 surface is covered by water that image would make pretty much sense... Anyway good image...

Also thanks to global warming sea level is rising slowly but surely... >.>

Would have nice to see a high res... Anyways nice work... Although the glass outside the frame is supposed to be transperent right... However I can't really make it out in the small res...

Maybe those petal are injected with super regenerative serum... Even though if it plucked out from the plant, the petals regenerates at hyper speed Or maybe its magic... Well putting aside my comedic attempt( and the glitches), I find the image to be nice...

Edit: Lol had to be you author... Ha ha ha ha gotcha author... Losing 14 petals and still having lots of petal... That daisy sure have lots of petals... XD

I donnu, but won' the iris( or cornea, actually I forgot the proper term) catch the reflection of the dropper at that close range... Just curious...

Well I do get your concept of filling his/ her( can't make out the gender) eyes with fish with a dropper and it became something like a pond, river or sea... But don't the surface of these also have reflection???

Edit: wow.. and they looked like another batch of fish swimming there... that sure fooled me lol

Contd. Also not a biggie and the cover will be folded as well( a personal perference)... The face in the cover should have extended to the back cover as well... Coz would have fitted the flow of your cover better... But still a cool album( afterall blue is cool)...

avatar arkncheeze

Cool... I love your color scheme... Actually I love images that are in greyscale with hint of some color... The thing about album covers is that you can create as you want... There are no hard and fast rule as to "you must put album name here", "put song list in this way" etc etc... However how whacky or cool looking the song list is, It must be at least 70% clear to look at... Your song list is good, although the song title "What ever it takes" is somehow hard to read... Mind you, I said hard to read, not unreadable...

Blur the foreground and sharpen the Halo planet... Will be clear than... Also If you can, use soft focus creatively to put more focus on that ring planet, just don't overdo it... Maybe add lights to the ring or perhaps not... Just a suggestion...

Edit: You can also tilt that apparatus in the top right corner of the image a few 10 degree upwards and pull it back a bit...

Also move the spaceman to the left and flip him horizontally if you want coz if you flip him you may have to adjust his lightning I guess...

Well that was cool... Actually I didn't mind the format... The image before looked better... And also not every cover opens from the front side e.g. in japan it opens from the back side... So your previous version was not wrong if you did it intentionally... Well I am adapted to reading both from left to right and right to left... Same case goes for opening a book or cd in this case... So it doesn't matter to me... Anyway again nice cover

Edit: It's just an suggestion, If you haven't merged your psd file and the sections are movable, don't cut and re arrange... Instead just shift the text...

And it would also different, the whole band at the back cover instead of the front cover... Although you will need clever song placement as not to overlap their faces...

"Using any 3D creation software, render a scene to do with Space travel. Use your imagination, be original. Detailed step by step guides are mandatory. In this contest, your scenes and models cannot be pre-built... Create your own models and your own textures. Everything has to be made by yourself, shown clearly in a step by step guide! Good luck"

@dka120 Well I too had that doubt but I didn't give it much thought... Coz as seen in the guideline, says "scenes and models cannot be pre-built"... And it also says "Create your own models and your own textures"...

However it doesn't say anything about "you cannot use outside texture"... Well even pro use outside texture and some even create texture from pre-existing textures... Ahh well will be better if mod clarify on this... Coz guides can be interpreted in different ways by different people...

Also this is the first time 3D specialized contest is being held... So can let go the first time... Just my humble opinion...

Cool... Btw whats the actual size of the high res in inches??? Just curios, the high res is cool in fact and the text doesn't looks blurry at all in high res... But however in small size it might become unreadable... But who the hell tries to read song name from a album from 10 feet far away... Most common and optimum distance is 15 to 30 cm... Other than the blur issue in small res... This is neat...

"You can either come up with a fictional rockband, or use a real rockband. If you decide to make an album cover for an existing rockband, you cannot use any elements from previous albums. Only the bands logo can be used."

Yes you can use the real name and also their logo/tm as well...

I guess pxleyes should make an another guideline for info about what software can be said to be pure 3d software... I do admit with the author thought that illustrator has decent decent ability( although I dunno how to make a sphere with the 3d extrude tool ) and is used in conjunction with many pure 3D software...

Edit: Ummm why the hell my comments are getting cut... Is there some text limit to comments... Whenever I write a long comment it gets cut... Anyways what I wanted to say was pxleyes needs to improve the description given for contest esp the theme contest...

I hate seeing contest getting removed due to misinformation or misunderstanding...

Oh well, without yin there is no yang and likewise... yin and yang need each other...

Edit: Btw the way cool render... 3D modeling is real tough when you try make stuff other than primitive shape... I am trying to learn lightwave and it is kicking my rear end lmao...



More edit: I am not an expert or whatever... But maybe there might be some optical illusion that happens due to the positions of certain space in a 2d or 3d space... e. g. there is an well know basic optical illusion where 2 parallel line of the exact line... One line has outward arrow at both it's edges and the other has inward arrow.... so when view they look like they are of different length... Anyways I may be wrong... But the image rock as hell
