MUST view full...wonderful use of source.
Thanks janhus, PSMandrake, Kellie, Goat, zorro13, Disasterman111, balodiya, rajeshstar, BOULPIX, Verkukes and NewsMaster for your kind comments. And of course thx to all voters (intresting voting by the way... nearly all in).
Félicitations TiredTom. Du beau travail. Vraiment excellent
congrats TiredTom a pleasant to the eye, the DOF you used is a master.. and Definitely a fave
Hey TiredTom, I swear that when I saw the top three thought they were the same person. This here was my favorite for gold. Anyway, congratulations on the bronze
zorro: Thanks for your kind words. Sleepy dust in my eyes, I missed to finish the smoke layer - there has been a "corner" over the grasshopper's head & a decrease on the contrast there... After I fixed that - some hours before voting has ended - the votings were better - maybe a reason... maybe. But Bronze is also nice (and Salis' roster & Mark's dragon are two killer chops, arent't they). Goat, thanks for asking about a tutorial - I feel honored. I thought about it and would rather give some hints about the image formation than Photoshop techniques - what's more intresting for you. I think all the PS stuff that went into this image is already said by others in the tutorial section. And remember: English isn't my native language...
David Carridine I saw the photos. Zero chance this was a suicide. Bangkok cops are idiots to the tenth power. Maybe the FBI will figure it out. RIP David, you inspired generations. Member reactions:
Awesome tribute. I don't buy the suicide version either.
Great tribute Hitspinner, Congrats on the Silver
Silver congrats, Spinner. Great tribute to a great man here.
Credit goes to david. It is sadly strange that I met Mr. Carridine just two months ago when my grandaughter visited here from Australia. He was charming as the day is long, had a sparkle in his eye and an enthusiasm that said this man loved life. He was also a musician and I thought getting some guys together for a jam was a distinct possibility. I feel rather sad that that will not happen. Fukin life and death, sometimes it makes no sense at all. Be well in whatever travels you now undertake, Master David. We will miss you. Thank you for your support of this chop. It was sent to his family
Congrats Hitster. I like the beat up face effects and the other elements of the chop, but the grasshopper doesn't really work for me. Maybe if it was standing on hind legs it would've looked more plausible or somethin'.... All that said, Great chop. I remember watching Kung Fu as a youngster. (pre-funkwood days) I'd wait in anticipation for each weekly episode, . Cheers.
I know the grasshopper doesn't work for you, Funkwood. He works for me and is pretty handy in the garden. However I may have to let him go as that spittin tobbaco habit is really gross. Actually, the source was just half a grasshopper. I created the bottom half of the body sort of on the fly. Just guessed. It's supposed to be leaping
, nice job, congrats and welcome back. Master Po would love this one too
I knew that was you you always surprise us it's was great work my dear friend Congrats on silver man.........
They are saying the rope position is not unusual with auto-eroticism stuff - even the hands behind the body is 'norm'. I dunno anything about that but it is just sad that this is how he is going to be remembered - a late night TV joke. He was a lot more than that. I luved Kung Fu. I luved his bits on History channel (or was it Discovery) that he did within the past few years. His brother was great on Deadwood in a role that David easily could have done, too. RIP.
