    JWin vs. gerbick :: beware of the minty freshness

    Classes start monday so I figure I have at least a week or two that I can ignore school projects, so if anyone wants a friendly challenge, here goes

    800x480
    2 or 3 day returns (finishing sooner is acceptable )
    no theme
    retain one element from previous volley




    car stock img

    The other images are originals, if you want them just ask and I can also post the PS file on my server.

    I like it JWin, simple but effective. The only critique I have is that maybe the car could have been blended a little better. As it is, it looks like some of my images as the car looks somewhat 'superimposed' on the rest of the image. The sign, mind, looks really nicely blended.

    Edit: I realized what it was, it looks like the sign is slightly tilted 'away' from the front of the image (ie, the shot was taken from the bottom up), whereas the car looks like it's leaning 'towards' the front of the image (ie, taken from the top down). I think that is what is making me think it doesn't fit well. Overall though, good image.

    Fresh for the new year... kept it simple, despite using about 38 layers at last count. And to be fair, I don't like my image. Can't wait to see what's next out of you JWin.



    *Happy New Year... first battle/image of 2006 after a long hiatus from battling*

    Great image gerbick. It is totally not the "Gerbick style" i'm used to seeing from you, but it is a very good image. So I guess it is the "Gerbick style" i'm used to seeing, lol. I love your attention to detail in this one. You blended the sign beautifully text wise. I'm loving the nickel in the womens hand. I'm not sure, but i'm led to believe the peeps are watching the firework show. It might have been cool to put a little splash of color on them from the fireworks. I love how they break frame. The play with fonts is cool as well.

    Keep it up guys....

    lol. you guys crack me up. "too collagey" - it's only two images and snippet of a third (the original is in there three times actually)

    "not typical gerbick style"... lol. that's saying a lot

    erm, have your monitor calibrated dude... there's color bleed on the hair from the original that I matched up in the fireworks with some overlay to add to the color integration. bah. nevermind me... I'm actually defending an image versus a few vague words. let's see the Arena live and well again, and let's see better! I triple dog dare you guys

    Next time i put the plaudit first, and then what i don't like (which isn't interesting, as it was personal gusto in that case anyways )

    And now, cheer it up, lil' VegasBoy

    I am quite cheery, misguided one. It's all in the name of fun in the Arena dude!

    Now, instead of critiques with words that don't exist, why not an image or two of yours here in the Arena? Easier to talk, harder to do... so let's see the images!!

    Yes, I'm doing whatever it takes to wake up the Arena. Too much talk, no enough image. And I can not remember any images from you. Ever. Tschuß, Jungen.

    Oh dude... I can see you've already taken it too seriously.

    Sure, you want an AS battle? I'm not the person. Unless you want to parse XML data in unique manners never before asked for by a client and make it do something... perhaps generative art perhaps? Take a look through my history dude... I was a mod in everything but Flash Help for no other reason that I truly dislike Flash. I'm quite sure if you post something, you'll gather some attention from other participants.

    Thanks for the quick reminder why I actually quit battling.

    Nice volley Gerbs, I like that one, even if it isn't in your usual style. Only 3 images used eh? I'd think that the streets of Las Vegas were the ones you overlayed a few times. I especially like the text blending on the sign, it's top notch.

    Although I always like to see images that are more towards the way you normally do things, it is nice to see things that you come up with when you step outside the box.

    image one
    image two

    The nickel - two halfs rotated, Jefferson's head added in via paintbrush - and the sign were from the original. Also, in the pole, parts of the old rusted car/truck became texture wrapped around the pole. Took some lights from the original sign, placed them on JWin's sign. The fireworks, from Combustion, the girl's eyes were changed to blue, there was a shift to "yellow" to go along with the fireworks and sign, and some added highlights in the hair and glasses.

    That's all it took, really. Nothing special. But I can't wait to see what's next. I left this wide open for JWin, he's new to battling and I wanted to avoid clutter.
