Photomanip that went through a crapload of concept changes. Final product turned out nothing like what I first went looking for, but I guess I like it.

Bunch of textures from Resurgere, couple stocks from StockXChange, plus a few stocks and tex's from random deviants.

Really nice and simple: from the grass to the sky and the man in the background -- it's all very good.

I am curious, where did you get the eight ball? I really like this.

Do I hear a favorite?

(if this is a double comment it is because my other didn't post.)

Impressive. I am just curious where you got the eightball... Did you make it? I really like how this looks.

No, it is a cropped stock shot. I just removed all of the highlights and reflections and messed around a pinch texture and colour.

Not specifically, sorry.
I think somewhere in the DA stocks. Probably the 'objects' section?

By far my favourite piece in your gallery - I love what you've done with different sources to create this final piece.

As I mentioned before you have a very gritty feel to your work - I love it. I'm reminded of another artist on DA who you might be interested in: ~subzosa

The textures here really create a harsh atmosphere, and heighten the size difference between the ball and the figure. I'm really drawn to the layered feel of the sky - really nice how you've blended those straight edges together.
