        • Fair work, congratulations on the bronze, icecream!
          I would get rid of the black square around the word "Drink". You probably have to adjust the brigtness levels on your monitor to see it.
  • UFO Marriage

        • Good work but I think the houses on the right are superfluous to the image IMO
        • Story makes me wonder where those flaming lanterns landed.

          Creative image, and I would probably go a little easier on the special fx next time
  • Phoenix Mars Lander

        • http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/WO0805/S00351.htm

        • You need to put a news story link for the above image.
          See header for instructions
          --------------------
          I fixed it. I didn't mean put the link in the header. I meant this contest header has instructions how to paste in the code.

          i.e In the Author's Comments, it is mandatory to link to a news story. You should use this format to make a link: news title

          Nice job and use of shadows too

        • Thanks guys. Yeah, the shadows were a real pain hahhaah... reworked like 4 or 5 times 'til it looked like appropriate bounce and scatter.
          The question I had was, is this a shadow in an earth atmosphere or a Martian atmosphere with much lower gas to scatter the light? I opted for something in between since it's location proposes it might be either.

        • i think the chicks at "Resistance" should spread THEIR lesg more often.

        • Jackie Chan is a closet transvestite?

        • In "The Fearless Hyena", Chan fights dressed as a woman and attacks his adversary with his fake ... s. It's called "Emotional Kung-Fu", and it's for laughs as is the image

          Here's the Japanese trailer:
          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNrQg9tZKKE

          Here's where he fights as a woman:
          http://youtube.com/watch?v=kTeOa3Dr16o&feature=related

        • Great work but Chan is Chinese. Then again, the article never stated if the woman was Japanese or not, she could've bee a Hobbit for all we know. Love the FN on the PC..
        • Hilarious spin on Jackie Chan

          LOL apraxine
        • Thanks all, and it was for all for laughs.

          I figured it was best use a familiar Asian face in the closet or it would of been a real snoozer and not very funny.
  • Strong Winds on Golf Course

    Strong Winds  on Golf Course
        • very nice background image, just the added golfers looks a bit off. the flag should follow the strong winds direction. still have much time to re-edit. i think.

        • Must be a golfer did this chop. Only a true linksman would understand that there is no better way to test your ball control than in a hurricane, Bwhahahahaahaha this is priceless!
        • i see now your revision. good work. thanks.
  • Oil Rig Crane Collapse

  • Skeleton Waiting for Late Mail

    Skeleton Waiting for Late Mail

        • ...pretty darn long wait! LOL.

          Okay, there's a lot of request for critiques.. so here's one for this artist, solicited as it shows the request. I'll try not to be pompous.
          This is a respectable idea, done many times, but still one of those timeless themes that seem to always amuse.
          But if you want to push for more votes, you might consider working it a little more to look less staged.
          Dodge, and blend skull and rib seams, remove wires and pins and maybe even add some cobwebs.
          Ask yourself, what elements would exist if this really did happen. Write em down and chop them in.
          If it were me, I would reference the british Crown with a Pic on the wall rather than a pin.
          Or you could reference it by putting underwear on the figure in the colors of the Union Jack for comic effect.... stuff like that
          Hope this arrives with the spirit as given.
