        • I like it!!
          The white city will no longer be terrorized. IT WILL BE EATEN!!!!!!!!

          Well done..........
        • no dear, there is no such thing as dragons
        • Color tone, realistic, and fantastic fantasy, all in one... top notch work.
        • it kinda looks like he has two arm joints, cause from his shoulder his arm is going down
        • Gongrats on your first sweep!
          Well deserved!

  • Guarded

    Guarded
        • I can't find a single flaw, very nice job on this entry
        • The only (minor) thing that I can see wrong here is some sharp cutting on the guy. If you blur the edges just a smidge, it would help. I still agree with Baimoo though, it is VERY nicely done. I especially like the shadows on the guy. They match the source pic shadows flawlessly. Possibly the best shadowing I have seen.
        • Terrific job!

          But, what does he use for a pooper scooper?
        • Dramatic lighting adds to this great entry!
        • Scapes??? That's not even a word, sugar..VERY nice entry, though.
          NO One Escapes!!! would work. Dogzilla???

        • Its cute, Funny, Well done, and all of your work on the hair really paid off. Great Job.
        • Why the white "glow" around the edges of the monkey?
        • unfortunately Sally's stories were more then Bongo could take and it turned ugly
        • I see the white glow as the sunlight glinting off the hair's edges, beautiful lighting work in my opinion.
        • The hair is amazing, agree about the sunlight.
        • I love this pic...so much imanagimation!

        • It is lovely, the paw would have been difficult unless it was covered in some way. The artist seems to have solved the problem well.

    Duck
        • Nice job, but ducks usually appear not so deep in water.

    Raccoon bridge

  • Tunnel

    Tunnel
        • Nice concept. I'd add some shadows between snake's mouth and the train.

  • King Kitty

    King Kitty
  • ant

    ant
        • Drop the contrast on the ant just a little bit to blend it in with the rest of the pic. Otherwise it's great!
        • I told you Hunny, we HAVE to get rid of the carpenter ants!
        • nice perspective, to adjust ant you could mask the bits you need to adjust. Saves a lot of time. Make sure you keep the original,

  • snake

    snake
        • Very nice idea and well done. The texture of the snake is just a bit off though. Try to darken it and add some blur or noise to really make this one POP.
        • Perhaps sharpening the edge would be good. Just mask the parts you want to sharpen with quick mask.
        • I really like this entry, it looks good wrapped round the gerkin building.

        • I spent so long with the lighting I just couldn't get it perfect. But hope you like it!
        • You could lower the brightness a bit!
        • I messed a bit more and this looks better i think
        • it is on the car on his top right arm but the rest of his legs are on the car so no shadow neccesesary
        • "Why don't we do it in the road...."

        • dude, the crop is good but it would be better if you could see more of the , whatever it is, and dull the contrast a bit

  • Stadium snake

    Stadium snake
        • Snake is almost too grainy compared to the rest of the pic, and the shadow is too wide making it look as tho the critter is floatinh.
  • Giant Dolphin.

        • I noticed that you made some improvements...I guess you were just trying to get the entry in before the deadline (which is why some things weren't cut out right).

  • Insane

    Insane
        • Soure pics would be helpful to show what you chopped? If you built this king kong float from scratch, thats amazing work.
        • I have seen this pic before. Doesn't appear that very much was chopped.
  • Monstrous chameleon

        • As much shadow as there is, the chameleon's legs should be in shadow also.

  • ship eater

    ship eater
        • Not well done. Your chop is too sharp, there is no disturbance in the water, and there is no bottom on the boat. The idea is good and you made the proportions look good but your execution wasnt too good this time. Keep trying though.
        • This is a really awesome picture. I like pictures of gigantic sharks and whales eating big ships!!!!!!!!

This contest is fueled by the following news: In a tale that sounds rather like a Wallace and Gromit flick, upset villagers in northeast England have hired armed guards to protect their beloved communal vegetable gardens from a suspected monster ... and that monster is a rabbit. The monster rabbit apparently has been attacking the gardens and nabbing a wide range of veggies, including Leeks, Japanese onions, parsnips and spring carrots. The twelve allotment holders of the garden in Felton, north of Newcastle, have elected to hire two marksmen with air rifles and orders to shoot to kill the monster rabbit post haste. The gardeners contend that this rabbit absolutely is massive. They maintain that its prints are huge, about the size of a deer's. Jeff Smith, 63, claims to have seen the giant bunny -- a rabbit with black and brown fur. He said that one of the rabbit's ears is bigger than the other. Three other allotment owners with the garden also claim that they have seen the monster rabbit. A fifth sighting was from a local woman who claims she spotted the rabbit literally thundering across her lawn early one morning.
