Thanks Grefix for competiton and congrats on making that far!

The bad news is that I think I've wrenched my right wrist tonight and I don't know will I be able to participate in the next round Sad
We'll see tomorrow if it's still gonna hurt that much.
Thanks all for votes and comments.

I think I hear excuses already floating to the top. If I lose the next round it was because I had hurt my wrist remember me saying it before the round started! And if you win it, will it be because of the wrist?? Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Had to throw that out there, so far you've had great works. But can you keep it up as the pressure grows?? Good Luck, may the best PS'er float to the top!

But if it isn't good this time I'll understand and blame that darn wrist of yours! Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

As some might have guessed, mine was an all source

(and with the recent all source thread, this actually confirms the fact that doing an all source does not always guarantee a good chop and/or votes Laughing )

Sorry it's not perfect but I really tried my best to make my entry "visually stunning" ( from Goat1981's comment). That's the only way I knew I can beat Claf, he's one of the best here. I thought he's going to make that coffee filters into a glass or silver Very Happy .And as he said, it's true that lack of time is a hindrance to make good ideas into actual image. And about comments, I took them all as constructive that helps me improve. Thank you all!

Well Martrex is that what you would do? I think yes. Everybody judges through his own point of view. I didn't even think of that.
BTW if you would be in my place than mabe you would know that pressure is all off. My plan before the H2H was to pass the first two round so now there is NO pressure on me at ALL since couple rounds Razz
Besides losing to GHanna in semi-final isn't that bad result for a newbie, is it? I don't know you tell me. Do I really need to look for some excuses?
So next time don't judge. Expecially when you're not right.
I'll do this chop even if I'll have to use only one finger and a touchpad. I've slept over and I just realized that couple people did quit before and I haven't good opinion about it.
So all the best to you. Less envy more smile man Razz

rangizz thats the second time during this tournament you've threatened to 'not make it in the next round' because of some contrived ailment the day before the source is released.

whether your wrist hurts or you dont have an idea for the source suck it up and chop...you dont need to go announcing to the whole community that your wrist hurts. it may very well hurt but how you said it made it seem like an excuse and a ploy for votes and attention.

i think youre a very talented chopper and have a good a chance as any to win it...but do yourself a favor and do it with class, not with excuses and pity votes...let your work speak for itself.

no more arguing on the site...its supposed to be a happy place thumright

Ok, sorry, no more talkink about it. Never thought of an excuse and never looked for an extra votes.
Yesterday I just was very upset about the accident. All I was affraid of is will I be able to chop. Never thought it will turn out that way.
BTW lots if not most of my comments are misunderstood, probably because of my english Smile
And other BTW, I really don't give a shit what people think Razz Laughing

and no need to rub it in when I lose to a newbie with one arm. Laughing Smile Surprised Confused Sad


I'm beginning to think that I'm a curse. Nubie was too sick to chop much in round 2 and CptSmitty got sick against me in round 5. I was actually sick Monday and Tuesday in round 6. I think the curse got confused and is trying to make up for it by attempting to break your right wrist.

I basically blocked with this rounds source.. My time was limited this week and I knew I had to do sth out of the box if I wanted a chance to win. After a few brainstorms.. I came up with my entry. I apologize for not being able to step up my game this time, maybe next year.
My window condensation was made using 1 external

lol, finally some normal comment Smile
No one will remember that curse when you'll win this tournament Smile
The worse thing is that we also lost the game when that accident happend Smile
Anyway I'm at work now, have taped it with some magic unguent underneath and I will chop. As I said let's forget about this theme and focus on externals listed here.

ok fine... back to externals...

My entry had no source in it... well, there might be a small section of the coffee filter in there, I can't remember.

I made the straws in photoshop, using a diamond shaped brushed with 25% spacing to make the pink line. I made 6 different straws and copied them several times over, very easy. After placing all the straws I shaded the majority of them individually and individual cast shadows. Of course it looked good to my eyes, but the fresh eyes of PSC suggested they still looked too flat. That's what happens when I stare at something for days, my mind gets used to what I'm looking at and settles for it.

The more obvious coffee filter textures were external.
The spider and spider web were externals.
The background is simple gradient to mimic the bland background of the source.

So Here is my background layer to reference where to put each straw.... I was going to do every beam, even the tiny ones as individual straws, and even the inside of the eiffel tower, but that was WAY too ambitious. My brother suggested I save myself some time and headache and use the coffee filter texture as a wall.
