    I need inspiration, someone battle me

    Well I need another battle so rules are:

    Size: 700 X 250 (smaller is easier for my weedle computer to handle)
    Can be rotated
    Must use something from previous volley
    Time limit: 4 days between volleys (if possible)
    Let's go 6 rounds, 12 images in all

    Here's what I am throwing up, I just haven't been inspired that last few days, so make of it what you will




    The model is stock by DeadlyClaris from deviantart.com, lost the link sorry

    *last time I do this ever again


    Ghostgirl, I'd really like to take you on again. Hopefully the crap that happened before doesn't happen again. Therefore, everyone except those who blasted me the last time can comment on this one (You guys know who you are)

    You know lefteye, if you want we can change the size to 700 x 400 or so
    *smooths tape holding the computer tower together*
    I think the ol' girl can handle it.

    Not joking about the tape either, duct tape=screws right?

    Not dark on my Sony LCD at all.

    Nice composition... ok, spooky composition...

    I like the small details like the nails digging into the wood, the shadows around the window in the door, the gritty textures/noise you added to make it seem more like an horror picture... full of details.

    But I think your blood splatter looks overlaid, and not worked in. blood would follow the contours of the door. for instances like that, I basically approximate with making selections that go with the approximate image's contours, and then either smudge or slightly skew to make it look like it's going with the grain/contours.

    the drop shadow on the gun is set too far down, should have been closer and to the right.

    Now, with all that said - and I think those are minor details overlooked - I still like the image.

    You've come a long way from your first images in the Arena, imho, and you're just getting better. I can't wait to see what else you pull out. You're definitely showing more technical work now than before.

    Keep up the good work, "one-eyed monster"

    Wow.....gerbs great points. I, however have a lighting 'issue'. Grab the burn tool and work the hand over. I can totally see where you were going, but the lighting is just a tad off. Maybe burn the edges of the gun too, IMHO.

    Good stuff going on.....get those details down and >POW!< you have yourself a screamin' image.

    I'm likin' your style Willy.....keep at it man, I see you skills growing.

    viva la arena!
