The model looks perfect! The background seems a bit lacking in my eyes, but i think the phone looks the most believable so far (and that is the contest, after all)

Good job and good luck

The drawing itself looks great, just a shame the picture quality is the way it is. The votes will be GREATLY affected if you upload a clearer version before the contests end

Can you use the word 'Ford'? Maybe just slightly tweak it.. other than that i can't find anything to fault.

The upper part in my eyes looks great, however the birds at the bottom look a little weak. I would suggest either removing them completely or making them smaller and giving them shadows. Good overall work though

The main focus of the image is really excellent.. A very realistic outcome. I agree with you author that the background should be changed, but again, the fly in the amber looks fantastic.

ponti55 says:

The scale is fantastic.. you can really tell you spent a while working with this one. I personally don;t like using textures much but i think you used them very well on this occasion. The silhouettes are a nice touch, but the building should cast the same strong shadows as they do.

Great overall work Good luck!

At the gates of hell...
avatar ponti55
ponti55 says:

Surrealistic or not, lighting is a basic principle in all images... it may never be 100% right but something as simple as flipping the tower would improve your image. If you'd like to go into more depth then i also suggest trying to make the strong dark shadow from the original source much softer and brighter to fit in with the surroundings. (look at how soft the shadows on the sand are)

ponti55 says:

lighting clashes between the skeleton, tower and sand. The shadow the fish is casting is also incorrect. I'm not too sure what that spike is beneath the fish either... you should upload a high res version so it can be seen better.

Hehe, very nice idea! My suggestion would be to reduce the saturation of the yellows and reds on the boots, the colour cast clashes with that of the background image. Good luck!

It's clear that you copied mqtrf's entry, even the title is incredibly similar. It's fine to use another image as inspiration, but at least credit the original author and don't pretend that you didn't know.

Still, it's a good image. You used the source well.

Very interesting idea! Just be sure to add some shadows under each figure and also pay close attention to the conflicting light sources.

What Happened To The Ark

ponti55 says:

Very nice overall work, my one nitpick would be that the shadows on the tower are too strong for that kind of lighting... maybe you could duplicate the left half and use that.

Great job and good luck

There is a gap in the arm of the figure one the right, it's particularly obvious in high res, i don't know if it's deliberate or not. Good imagination.

Nice work. Good layout... my one suggestion would be to make the nose pop out a little more, it kind of blends into the skin tone.. maybe just an increase in contrast will help out. Good luck!!
