In time he will cross the waters, and victory will be sweet.
Used 3 of the contest images and one from the the stock project. The boulders in the forground and birds in the background are my own photo's. Water was created with the aid of the Flood filter, the waterfall is a special brush.
My favorite artist is Salvador Dali, the clock I draped around the rock someting like Dali did is some of his works. I copied the number of the clock and gave them a 3D feel, something similar I did with the clock hands and gave them a new shadow. I added a glass feel and reflections with in it a reflection of a sky, another photo in my collection.
This one was fun. It changed a few times, but I finally got the lines finished. Then it sat there for a few days, while I tried to figure out how I wanted to color it. Everything came together though, and I can say I am very pleased with it. It was a load of fun to do.
When I saw the sckibble, I thought of two entities circling each other, something . The first draft was some very abstract aliens. They did not seem quite right, so I kep going back and tweeking the features, and as I refined it, the creatures emerged more so as a mutant shark and whale.
Edit: forgot to mention that this image is designed so you can flip it around and view it from other degrees of orientation.
And finally, to finish off my Halloween weekend, I present the reason I've been a sleepless zombie all day! The Gen V Ghost Trio of Hitomoshi, Ranpuraa, and Shandera Litwick, Lampent and Chandelure!
I always try and top myself every year. I knew I had to do something really awesome to top Link from last year. I came up with the idea for this one after posting the original ghost trio and watching it take off. I'm not the first to have carved these guys (~ShinigamiRemu did a pretty awesome version) but I wanted to throw my take on them out there as my last of the weekend.
I still haven't played any of Black or White, but this line really sticks out to me. I'm definitely having a Shandera on my team. They don't quite beat Dusknoir as my favorite ghost pokemon, but they have a bit of a jack-o-lantern feel to them. They're perfect for pumpkins.
This was by far the hardest pumpkin of the weekend. I think it turned out awesome, so I'm throwing it in as my last entry into the DA contest. Wish me luck!
Barely making the deadline on this one. I wasn't gonna enter, but convinced me to. It's too bad she didn't get time to get her entry done.
Anyways. I hope I have my concept made clear.
Zombies are chasing him and he gives them all Mentos so that they don't eat his brains. Not uniquely clever, but I had fun. :3
Edit- I made it into the semi-finalists! But it looks like not everyone can see it due to the filter I had on it to begin with. I was afraid some people might be bothered by the zombies and blood, but since it made it this far I think it's ok so I took it off. But it's still not fixed! I'll check back tomorrow and if it's still not showing up then I'll have to have a chat with someone at the help desk.
