I thought I would throw a new style at you guys. Guess not.
you'll get us next time, hits. best wishes matey, with lots of inspiration and new styles.
Thanks Jere, I am afraid I have run my course for now. For some reason my best does not pay the bills anymore. My agreement was if I could make part of the month's gas money out of winnings here I could invest the time. But unfortunately the votes aren't there so it is time to take a break. Go back to default so to speak then take another look at some future point.
yeah, i understand. don't take too long though. the place is not the same without you..
Excellent artwork on its own. The use of the source is a bit subtle on the first look. Wish the elements from the source took more central place and bigger space in the composition, in the light of the contest
It took me a moment to find the source, anyway good try.
Brilliant work. I would do some small changes: 1) Make her hair in long flowing lockets - this would add to zero gravity feeling 2) Change her round panties for the triangle ones - to cover her up more and make it completely "safe"
Congrats on the Bronze - Guess she got tired of pasties already (ha).
Congatz Doc. Paul. Fits Miley to a T. Send Miley to Mars and re-bury Nancy Pelosi and the world will be in balance again.
Love it, Hidden. I would increase the contrast levels on her face and change the face/helmet colors for the colder tones to match the rest of the picture. Might consider using a different source for her face too, because this one features a soft light while the rest of the picture shows strong light with clear shadows
It isn't a helmet it is a commercial hair dryer and the reason I selected a soft light face was because there is atmosphere in the spacesuit where light electrons collide, bounce and reflect off of the oxygen atoms. Thus reflected soft light. In a vacuum this reflective activity cannot happen so light is stark and direct. The other reason I picked her face is because she's a fox. Your comment on color is not a technical point so, okay, if that is your taste. I kept the original colors because I liked the aged plexi look. Thanks for your input, Newsey. I want ahead and added a tiny bit of contrast and tweaked it some. I added a wee more blue in the visor thinggie and , yeah, it tied it in a little better.
The logical explanation makes sense, but such collisions are not enough to turn the hard light into a soft light, otherwise hard sun light in our earth atmosphere would always be soft light due to oxygen and other molecules in the air. Yet, it's not the case in reality. Besides, the brain expects to see things how it usually remembers them, in similar setting. Here's a typical shot of a face in a space helmet - there's very slight difference in the hardness of light and shadows outside and inside the helmet, and that is due to a thin UV protective layer on the helmet glass: LINKY The way it is now, due to a different color pattern and soft light & shadows, Scarlett Johansson's face looks painted on the helmet (or a hair dryer). I don't mean to belittle your work, just telling you my personal opinion on what seems a bit off here.
Congratz, Hit-Man. Your right. Scarlet is a Super Fox.... By the way...what does Scarlet use that triangular shaped plug in the pant area for...
SplatShot. It is a verification hole for Nick Furey to tell if she is the real thing or a dreaded spy
The International Space Station will host its first female cosmonaut by the end of September. The lucky woman is Russian astronaut Elena Serova, who will be the fourth woman to reach space. The flight will happen later this month amid the US-Russian tensions, despite the US plans to end any cooperation with Russia in space exploration. The historic flight that took the first woman to space (Valentiona Tereshkova) happened 51 years ago on June 14, 1963. Tereshkova is 77 today and is in good health. She even asked to be included in a crew on a one way trip to Mars, which may happen within the next 5 years.
Show how women could rule space exploration and space tourism - womanize astronaut clothes & accessories, spaceships, equipment, show how women can settle down on the moon and Mars, etc.
Many thanks to kibuyu for the themepost.
June 14 marked the 50th anniversary of the first woman in space. It was Russian astronaut Valentina Tereshkova who was 26 on that historic flight in 1963. Tereshkova, 76 today, is still active and plans to be one of several selected astronauts for the first manned flight to Mars in 2018. Due to several technical challenges, the manned Mars mission will is planned as one way only. The astronauts will spend the rest of their lives on Mars, completing their mission. "Space was my life, and I'll be honored to spend the rest of my life in space too", said Tereshkova on the 50th anniversary of the first woman in space.

The world's first space tourist and multimillionaire Dennis Tito is financing a project to get space tourists to Mars by early 2018. Tito, who spent $20 million on his space trip in 2001, is so anxious to get to the red planet, he's pumping hundreds of millions of his own money into the project, because he's doesn't want to wait till NASA or Roskosmos will offer such space trips to just any rich tourists. The return trip to Mars should take about 501 days and is expected to cost over $100 million per space tourist. "Expensive, I know, but we already have a list of customers who are willing to pay this price for this once in a lifetime experience", said Tito.
Photoshop anything related to space tourism. Some examples are - what companies might be the pioneers to commercialize space (e.g. Moon or Mars) and and how they might adapt their products for it. These are just some ideas.
Iran successfully sent a monkey into space and it returned back alive and safe. This is an important step in the Iranian space exploration program, says Iranian Defence Minister Ahmad Vahidi. "There's still a long way to go till we send man into space, but today we became one step closer to this", adds Vahidi. Iranian television showed still pictures of the monkey in a capsule after it landed. Previously, Iran successfully sent several small animals into space, but the previous attempt to send a monkey into space failed in 2011.
Photoshop anything related to space exploration by animals. E.g. show how space exploration history would be different if animals explored space instead of humans, photoshop animal astronauts, etc. All animals - living, extinct, or even mythical are accepted for this contest (except for humans)!
It's official - British singer Sarah Brightman secured herself a space trip in 2015. Brightman paid over $20 million for this "space ticket" which will allow her to spend three weeks at the International Space Station - which works out to about $1 mil a day. In an interview, Brightman said she always dreamed about space travel, and finally decided to buy herself the most expensive vacation she could think of. The world-famous classical vocalist will spend two years training for this space mission. She also started learning Russian, to communicate with the Russian crew who will take her to the ISS and back. "I wish some alien would kidnap me," Brightman said.
