Something strange about the nose. It might be the sharp lines/edges which just dont go with the rest of the style you seem to be shooting for.

I agree, the posteredge filter is a bit much (I think thats the one you used)

Really nice color pallet! I feel like the lady might be too big for her tree, either that or her shading doesn't match the tree's shading. Don't touch the sepia tones though, they make this!

The colors and the textures work out very well for this, but I'm not sure whats going on with the "cliff" or dark area between the valley and the bare area before the cabin. The middle ground is confusing, but with a bit of work it could make this piece really stellar. Maybe put some rocky outcrops in or remove the tree texture and put some shrubs or bushes in. You could smooth it out and continue the slope of the hill into the dirt terrain. =)

With the on unicorn, it's shading and color seems to be more yellow than the other one, Ctrl+U for photoshop will open a window where you can change the over all color- which if you slide it so it's more blue I think it would blend better. I like it though =)

This reminds me of "Lost World" with Will Ferrel when they ate those fruits in the pool in the desert. =)

Being new I'm not completely sure, but I thought photoshop contests were mainly chopping up real images and not quite digital drawings, which I would think this would be? It's kind of very confusing to me where one stops and one begins, HOWever! If you were to take the textures, and not just the colors from the picture and used your pencil marks for guides, completely replacing the marks with photosource, texture, and color, I would think the Chairs picture and the dragon would tie more together. Other than that, use your contrast options to clean up some of that grey =) He's a perty Dragon.

You went through so much trouble I kind of wish you put the map on a wall or something, maybe lit by touch light. Make it go that last step ya know? Very neat concept though.

If you take the desaturation tool and touch up a bit of the blue I think it would sit back more into the background. This was integrated well though!

Need some work with shadows and establishing a light souce but great otherwise! Good luck.

There is something off with your shading with the flowers but over all I love the idea of turning the chairs into flowers.

Very nice color change, the headband is a pretty nice touch.

Did you try using the wave or ripple filter for the clock refractions? Fiddling with their settings might give a better result. Very interesting piece over all- and I like the inclusion of the poem.

Unified light souce and number glow (or 'eye' glow) would make this an even better piece.

Not sure what a sexy girl would have to do with the clocks but it's very nicely put together. The refraction work is stellar.

From the title I thought there would be a guy in a hampster wheel, I like your lighting and such. Good luck.

Could use some bold shadows and a light source. Texture certainly works well with it though.

This is a striking image that caught my eye right off the bat- good use of color and it's a strange concept. I like it.

I think it needs more shadow work to really make it stand out. Shadows or contrast or something. It has some really nice flat textures happening in it which make it more illustrative feeling.

If you went in and added some spots or imperfections to the egg (like a spotted bird egg or something) which you could do with a speckle or spatter type brush I think your egg would blend better in the image. I might dark up the shadow under the iguana too. It's very cute though, I like it!

Taking some of the foreground guys and bending the edge ever so slightly might help with integration better. My favorite part is the guy who's over acting in the back. =)

I really like your bold colors and flames or glowness that you added. I think perhaps the comic book style of the piece isn't helping it as much as it should. Good luck!

Needs some work on integrating elements, front legs usually have elbows and not knees. Very illustrative for a chop though.
