        • Whoever you are, JUST STOP! I'm sure it was great before the spaceship, the bird on the light, the water the Gremlin and the relections on the chrome? This is a freaking masterpiece!
        • Golden Korean gremlins for Rainman! Congrats!

          Hats off to whoever selected the contest source pic too! Probably Newsy I guess.

    Acrobat in a Mug of Beer
        • Luv the comedy of this entry. You've got a twisted mind, Hidden Author! (In a good way)
        • Something about this image is wierding me out
        • Somewhat creepy, but very clever!
          I love your caricature.
        • This one is freaky and reminds me one of those scary but very interesting fairy tales I used to read when I was a kid.
          Love how you added the scuba glasses and the bubbles!
        • Excellent job... especially admiring your skills at light and color play.
        • Silver brewery for KIR! Congratulations!
        • Reminded me of a Hitspinner entry... congrats on silver!
        • Congrats KIR Gives new meaning to the phrase "strange brew".
        • This one really cracked me up, excellent job KIR....
          Congrats..
        • congratssss keeppppitreal)))) wonderful work
        • Thanks all! My alternate title was "Beer Goggles & the Perv" but apparently it was sufficiently creepy already It is my first acrobat in beer chop. After finishing it I thought it needed some pow, and what could be better than a weird & scary doll to make things interesting?

        • Lolcomment (it's my first acrobat in beer chop) I should think so! lol! Is he holding his breath or taking a big gulp? Great chop Keeper & congrats.

        • This looks great, I like your sources and the idea. One suggestion, the bottle shadow appears to have a problem, it's not touching the bottle (on the left). The blend tool should take care of that.

        • Congrats on the bronze (bottle), triplex!
        • Congrats Triplex Nice job at layering him into the bottle.
        • Congrats triplex! I hope someone uncorks him soon before the air runs out
        • Thanks guys!
          I let him out after the contest.
          Had he lost though...
        • Nice work triplex... but how'd he get in there? lol!! (don't answer that, He's probably a contortionist too.)
          ps. I really like the rippled glass effect, it makes him look like he's really in that bottle. It's much more apparent in full view.

  • Acrobat Dream

    Acrobat Dream
        • Nice job with multiple sources. You may want to move the book over his hand to hide his cut off finger.
        • Okay- Thanks I corrected it. I thought I had covered the fingers before... but you are right.
        • I really like the zipper effect with the masonry stones.
          Well done!
        • Fantastic composition. Love how you made the boy work as a zipper
        • It was done faintly in your manner - you know how to do colors so well...... this was just a chop job not art (like yours).... but thanks for commenting!!

        • Great background source to fit with the acrobat.

          You may want to try adding a highlight to the boys head and arm to make it shiny like the tail. This will help with matching the light source / shadows.


        • I agree with jest3r. Great composition but slight light and shadow touch up is needed
  • Toys Balancing on Eggs

        • Surreal creative stuff! I like how you colorized the acrobat suit

        • Subtle. Shadows help with the realism on this one.
        • OK, who's the clown girl who gave this acrobat crabs?
  • Boy Balancing Under Water

        • Very decent water work. The reflection and the transparency make it look real.

  • Acrobat Wrestling

        • Huge source. You may want to feather your crop lines around his hands. Shrink the whole thing down a bit then add a little noise (just a tad) over him to match the rest of the image.
        • OOh that is big, thought I had taken it down a bit before posting, will get it sorted, thanks for the tips
