Love the mood of this one and it all blends so well it doesn't even look like it was composited... it was, right. Nicely done.
Nicely Assembled, Hiddenwood. Love the gray and the low sat tones.
Ty, yeah Rob it was all built from scratch. I'll post the sources soon so you can get an idea of the process.
Looks like some abandoned, cursed objects in Bodie. Nice one.
Reminds me of leonardo da vinci's workshop, very innovative especially mechanical crow
Really, an amazing job. It could have been a still life photographed. All the perspectives, shadows, check. I really like this piece a lot
We could discuss if some shadow shoud be longer or shorter but in this case really small details. I have no words.
Grats, FW. Very Interesting and Inspirational. Keep'em Coming.
How much hours of work is that . OMG . impressive
Quite a nice, artful arrangement. Totally Bodie, just needed a gold pan and some dust covered placer gold to complete the "untouchable" ghost story for me. You'd never know it was a chop. Congrats on the gold. If you are not familiar with Bodie, Ca and the story, this probably sounds like gibberish. Treat yourself and Google it. It is one he11 of an amazing ghost story
Congrats on the Gold. Boy that'll teach me to go on and on about how good your entry is BEFORE the voting. What a dunce I am,
Congrats on the gold Funk
Thanks everyone. This one was a lot of fun..Armatien, not sure how long it took. More than a few hours I suppose. A lot of time spent on composition and color tweaking. Tim, I checked out Bodie. Cool looking ghost town. Robb,it's tough to say how much comments during voting affects voting. As a general rule I don't comment on entries until voting is completed. At Worth1000 they won't allow you to see comments until you've voted. Probably a good idea.
Agreed. Some people use comments as barbs and efforts to minimize where others are extremely helpful. It is always the bad apple that spoils the barrel so I steer away from the practice of critical comments, mostly, and prefer to give positive kudos. Then there is the rare case when someone has really blown it and I might say something if there is time to save it. It can be a touchy subject and I think you have adopted wise policy, albeit sad. I am sure everyone likes to hear your comments as much as I. You have many hard won gems of experience to give
Thank you, Andwhat, pcrdds, berdulano and Aplatshot.
Give that poor robot a can of oil and put him to work. Excellent Job.
Excellent. A lot of great work that paid off nicely … nice touch with the dying flower
This is called a Mind Blowing Job 10+++++++++++
Phenomenal Job. Lost in Space on Steroids..
Silver Congrats jeremix … so much patience you have … very well constructed within it's parts, and the overall rust effect achieved quite nicely. I love the way you constructed the hand especially. For me, it would look even better if the glass was clear on the backside of the brain showing the sky behind it, but that's a nitpick … great work.
This is so freaking brilliant, I'll just stand here clapping and shouting "Jere Jere Jere." Congrats on the silver. P.S. and I like the Dutch houses in the background too
Great elements, great blend + great chop.It's been a while since I have seen you active. Good to see you haven't lost your touch
thanks a bunch, guys. I don't think i'm back though. Chopping makes me nervous and makes me wanna smoke again and drink to much coffee and all that. Once or twice a year seems to be my max these days. I bought a nikon d7000, so next time i participate it might be with my own sources.
holy cow batman. this is seriously impressive work.
Well, this rocks. The rusted girl is Milla Jovovich, right.
Yes, that's Milla and the term Rust Belt comes from the area in the U.S that was the hub of iron and factory production in the 70s, which is about the same time Milla was born, and about the time she immigrated the era had ended.
Can't mistake your work-always amazing. Congratulations.
Congrats on the silver Rainman. Great work
Congratulation for the silver cup. Magnificent work as usual. I'm happy to seeing one of your new creations. Your a master.

Congrats Rainman, I kinda thought this was yours but wasn't sure...cause I haven't seen you submit for a while. The skin texturing is just awesome.
