Just to be clear, I never said you cheated. Just thought maybe the 3D was used a bit too much. But, thanks, Nator. I suppose I neglected to look in the most obvious place for the existing guidelines.

BTW, author, why'd you delete all your comments? Now I look like I'm talking to myself.

Not much, really. Eventually, just some guidelines should be put in place. Until then, it's just my opinion, and I know of a few other people who will most probably criticize you for using 3D software...*coughCMYKcough*...and one of your nice meter guard entries did ultimately get pulled, didn't it? Maybe just try to limit the use of 3D in your future entries...you'll get less haters and have less risk of being pulled. Good luck, author.

That's a shame if the same thing happens 3D contests, but does that mean that it still has to happen here?

Does it really say anywhere "you are allowed to use 3D programs?" And anyway, as I said before, it's not the program that seems unfair, it's the extent of it. When a small part of the image is 3D, fine. But when the main components of it are, it becomes more of 3D contest than a PS one.

LOL That's very funny. Nice one.

Nice! Doesn't look much like a hoax photo though, but mood is very nice.

EDIT: Wait...I saw the high-res. This is another 3D image, isn't it?

Yes, but apples are not normally bigger than dogs. Funny idea, anyway.

Great one! Just fix the dark spot below the head--it disrupts from its total awesomeness.

Gratz but...sorry. It just seems like poser was the main program here. It's unfair to people who just use strictly photoshop.

Nice UFO! Looks very classic-hoax-like. Just an idea--I wonder how it would look if you cut out the banner of a real news channel...oh, but that would be copyright, I suppose. I guess the banner just looks kind of simple for a news channel, but the image is very good.

Breaking news
avatar gamemastertips

Agreed with Dan. Like the UFO, but not blended very well into the image. Remember, one thing is to make a UFO, another is to make it realistic enough that someone in high-def could not tell the difference.

Hehe no prob. I would have never seen it. It was in the SBS.

avatar gamemastertips

I don't get it...the SBS says that he filled the bottle black and fitted it with the shadow. I think that effectively makes it invisible. Interesting idea with the boat, though.

Yes, agree with Nator. Would be nice with a bit of an "old" look. Very creative otherwise.

Okay I'm not taking anyone's side (still think the picture is awesome) but I can see CMYK's point. Maybe there should be some kind of guideline implemented as to what programs are allowed, so that arguments like this don't arise.

Lost Chance

Very beautiful! Just one thing: the should probably be a bit of shadow on the roof from the tree branches. Awesome job otherwise!

Solitude
avatar gamemastertips

Well, I guess it's a pretty common idea that would've sprung to mind. :/ Picnic cloth...pond with water...at least the meter guard and shadows are different.

(5 years and 1721 days ago)

Okay yes, it's good now. Not bad overall--I love how you made the tires. I would've never thought of that lol.

Okay I see, Jello. So who's to blame for being unoriginal then? The first guy or this guy? lol

Awesome, I love this! Amazingly ominous entry!

Lost Chance
avatar gamemastertips

I don't think he copied it. He wouldn't have had enough time between the two entries...but, what do I know. :/

Oh and the water looks a bit unrealistic...and the boat reflection is a little off...and the perspective of the blanket is a bit off too. Sorry...

(5 years and 1721 days ago)

shadow photographer
avatar gamemastertips

Nice! Might be better if it weren't so distorted though. And the shadows under the wheels make the car float...is this intentional?

Somehow, the back of the turret looks a bit unnrealistic on the rhino's back (maybe flatten/shave it off a bit?) Otherwise, you got a really nice idea and well done.

Wine and dancing
avatar gamemastertips

Very nice idea! Just a couple of small things: The wine bottle and glasss should probably be transparent in the area where they're empty; the wine looks a bit unnrealistic (try making it more settled and flat...looks a bit swirled up, unless you want it that way); the shadows of the glasses and bottle would also probably look better if they were a tad darker. Sorry to be so picky but you're done a great job so far and you have a good concept to work with.

AWESOME! I think this could be one of my favourite here. Great work!

You should just remove the glasses entirely. It still looks odd with them, especially considering that he has no nose or ears to rest them on. It's an alright concept but, again, you really need to clean up the teeth area.

No, erikuri, lol, I hate anything of the kind. XD Let's put it this way: I hate the picture, but it's well done. Gl, author.

Very nice, agree with hereisasnoop. I just couldn't help noticing that the edge of the two signs are chopped off a bit abruptly. Just a small detail, nothing that would affect my vote.
