Great work! Very convincing! My only complaint (very small)...the strap and shoulder shapes don't mesh visually. The rest of the image is perfect.
awesome

Man, that's just something beautiful. I really like the surrealistic world you created. Very original idea, indeed. :)

Me likey.

BTW, how did you do that "rusty-looking skin"?
Skin texture
By LauriA on Tuesday, 11 December 2007 12:41 PM
I created a pattern from the woodtexture of the tree. Then I applied it over the figure with 50% Fill & Soft Light. Then just some adjustments to the colors.

This is the reason I will never win one of these competitions! Remarkable work. Nice combination of technical skill, subtlety, and creativity. Good job!

Great work! I like that you've gone a bit wild with the original material, you have to actually search for the originals before you spot all of them. The character displays some real imagination.

I like this! Beautiful tones and very creative approach.
Use of given images

Thanks, I also wanted to share a bit more detailed how I used the given images. Maybe this will help you spot them out :) http://www.yksinvaltias.fi/use_of_photos.jpg

Atmosphere in this picture is just incredible. When I watch that picture my head starts to imagine that world out of the frame. Good luck! You got my vote for sure!

better than all the rest
By napierajczyk on Friday, 14 December 2007 6:16 PM
hope that you win because this is the best work of all :) Cheers bro!
By Joker on Saturday, 15 December 2007 3:23 AM
My only vote is for this one because is the Best Idea, best use of pictures and it's not floating.
By Samuel_ on Saturday, 15 December 2007 9:18 AM
There aren't too many entries on this round that could be described as something unexpected and original. This one is by far my favourite, good luck.
Great work
By niknak on Monday, 17 December 2007 12:30 AM
Really nice original use of the phone, and the texturing was a clever idea. The only bit I don't quite like are the green bits 'flying' off to the left, they seem a bit over-saturated and random to me. Apart from that it's cool tho.
By Nestr on Monday, 17 December 2007 1:38 AM
Hi,
If you think my image
is worth looking at then please drop a comment saying: Yes
If you think it is not worth it then please don't hesitate to say: Bullshit.

Thanks for your time
By LauriA on Monday, 17 December 2007 8:00 AM
Thanks to everyone who voted.

It would seem that I have very little chance of winning this anymore as I'm already a 100 votes behind the leading entry. I'm still happy though, because the final image turned out to be a lot better than I originally expected. I'm also taken by the fact that people couldn't come up with harder critisism than "the flying leaves are a bit over-saturated" :)

So thanks again and best of luck to everyone,
Lauri Ahonen.
Nice

I like the fact that this has a little abstract tone.
