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

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.

The tutorial used Cinema 4D. did you use that or do the text in Photoshop?

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.

Sounds like a "Cock and Bull Story"

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.

This looks like a lot of work and there is a professional quality evident. Thank you for those SBS and clear explanations as well it is a great way for peons (like me) to learn new techniques. This is a very appealing image in dark hues of earth colours for it creates mystery.

Good mood, but if this were my image I'd reposition the middle TIE fighter that's kissing the nose of the Imperial ship.

Dear mr. Chappel,

I love the picture above. We like to use your flying impala and maybe the low flying lamborghini in our magazine as an illustration of an article about the future of cars. If you like the idea, please contact me.
