Re: July 2008 Contest Votes

1 Cassidy – Fun – I could see this as a poster
2 Karin I – well done but it needed shadows
3 Frank Lopes – This one reminds me of a mythological creature.
4 Photo B – Nice colors.
5 OlBaldy – Well put together

There were several others that I really liked but they were just a little too Mr. Potato Head for the way I saw this challenge (photo realistic new species). I think that I would like to be given more specific rules, but that might make the submittals uniform and boring.

Re: July 2008 Contest Votes

Really hard voting for me on this one, but here goes

1. Karinl - very realistic looking
2. Frank Lopez - Looks great but would liked a little less fade from feather to skin
3. Philbach - Love your masked bandit
4. Pixeltek - Quite bizarre looking and love the little splay of black and white feathers
5. dweekly - The feathers on the head contain so much detail

Would love to be able to vote for so many more.... really well done

Re: July 2008 Contest Votes

All the entries are amazing in creativity and execution. I finally voted for the ones that were photo realistic and had that “aaawww” factor.

1. Cassidy – I want to adopt him/her. Beautifully done in all aspects.

2. Ruzzez – Incredible work in combining the texture of the elephant skin with the zebra stripes.

3. Old Baldy – It looks like something out of Jurassic Park.
Excellent color blending.

4. Frank Lopes – Another amazing blend to create reality.

5. karinl – I’ll take him/her home as well. Great work.

Special mention to pixeltek. When I saw the dimensions required by this contest, I said to myself, a giraffe would work very nicely. Congratulations on using the elephant’s trunk to create that illusion. I would have chosen your entry in the top five, but the back foot wasn’t quite finished. Sorry about that.

Excellent work everyone,
