(to the author) Oooh an overclocker!! I'm at 4.8 with a 7700K on air. Haven't tried 5GHZ. Just plopped it at 4.8, fired it up and it's been rock solid ever since. Only got 24GB and need more soooo bad but it's so damned expensive. I moaned when I had to spend $98 for 16GB, now it's like double that.

(hi George too)

Are the 3D models standard with CC2018 or come from an external source?

I like the perspective of the Owlguana. Not too shabby with the shadow too.

I tried several times to open the 3d segment of photoshop... just a few seconds. Gave me headache! So I'm full of admiration for those who can make something out of this fierce interface

Good work. It tells a story. Times are changing. Tom is walking in the pristine wilderness only to be greeted by a monstrosity of modern technology.

Just so you know, this was tied with "The Pink Flower Dragon" as my favorite of all the other entries.

BWR says:

IMO the dragon should be lighter towards the fire. Look at the wing on the far right by the castle. It is much further away from the fire, but it is just as bright as the face.

Good job although that tutorial seemed incomplete. In the final image of the tutorial, it has some sort of lens type flare, a glow around the planet, and some pretty hard highlight brushing.

Close Encounter Of The Eerie Kind
avatar thefinalcut

Great image! Nice work on the book. Is the "cock" supposed to be behind the shadow of the book? If not, the whole right side of it should be brighter. It will also pop from the darker book. Good Luck.

robvdn says:

Great job author, shadows do not bother me at all. On the contrary they work OK for me. Shadows can't be perfect since we work with different sources.

Only minor thing you could improve IMHO is the saturated areas on the book, should be a few minutes work.

Otherwise: great entry

Look at the shadow of the bull's horn...that clearly establishes the light source, which would give you the angles of the other shadows. Good idea otherwise.
