      • Amazing Very well executed Very well done
      • Love the whole chop; the water reflection is done especially nice. Congrats on the wood too, Paul.
      • Congrats, Paul. Another trophy, if you don't have enough space for them on your shelf feel free to use shelf on my Freakingnews desk.
      • Double-Congrats. This one is a Beauty. Colors are perfect.
      • Thanks, everyone...this was a lot of fun.
      • Okay, now that the voting is over I can't diminish the outcome of this chop. I will speak and critique on purely technical points. Opinions are useless fat because everybody has a different one. Two points I believe will improve your game and make me feel a whole lot better when you beat me in these things. 1st, Soft shadows are used in diffused light, sharp shadows are used in bright, stark, direct light. That is what I covered in my first class to students.I have watched you struggle with that so there is the basic rule 2nd, ice mass extends way below the surface and prior to adding surface reflection you have to add the layer of "under ice" as a gradual fade. Two little secrets to improve your score. If you need help, I'm here studiodowling msn .com. And it is a sweet and funny chop my friend -Edited by Moderator on 8/15/2013 7:30:35 AM
      • The ice came with SOFT shadows from the bear, Tim. I didn't extend the ice beneath the surface because the premise of the chop is that the Arctic ice is disappearing...hence, it would be a thin piece and not a chunk.
      • Well, those are two points of light for me to digest. Thanks guys-I'll try to remember those creative differences.
      • I realize I sound like a pompous azzho Doc.
      • Congrats on the woody Doc.. Keep going..
